2015 has been the year of travel for me, and I’m loving every minute of it!
I’ve been traveling quite a bit for work filming / photographing events, and heading to New York City for meetings. Last week I traveled to Portland Oregon, not for work but for a family trip with my Mum. My uncle and aunt live there and we had an amazing time in the land of the moss and the green! That’s what I kept calling it at least, but more on all of these travels later.
Here are a few of my favorite things around the web this week.
- I’m a major BBC Radio 1 fan ( always have, always will) and this mashup has been on repeat. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vARBXU59BPw
- These packing cubes really have been a life saver for me. So easy to pack for multiple stops and different climates. When I flew into Philadelphia it was 90 but when I went to Portland it was in the 50’s.
- Read Beautiful Ruins on my flight to the west coast, I can’t believe It took so long to read a book about Italy in the 60’s and Hollywood.
- This has been the playlist I’ve been listening to constantly while in the air, or driving from place A to place B.
- This pilot recounts every moment on his flight from London to Tokyo. Such an interesting read! ( Plus a great page layout)
Have a great weekend! I have a 3 day weekend and I couldn’t be more thrilled to relax, finish up my posts on Portland and head to the beach!
I feel like every sunset I see/photograph gets better and better. Vermont can be pretty unbearable at times during the colder months, and I feel like these sunsets are Mother Nature’s way of saying “I’m sorry I was so persnickety. Here’s a beautiful painting to say sorry.”
This sunset was taken 2 weeks ago at Oakledge Park where my friends and I made S’mores, played with Google Glass, and talked till the stars came out.
I hope you’re enjoying your summer adventures as much as I’ve been. I know there’s been some hard core radio silence on this end, and I want to change this. I’m just searching for the best direction to take this blog in. What’s your favorite thing that your home offers?
Hello world! It’s me Brooke! Today I’ll be trying to keep up with this blog agian and to kick it off… I’m going to do a post that was written in May, but do to a hectic summer (and not wanting to go outside for fear of melting) I must have lost this post. This is a post I wrote after my friends graduated from college and we took a graduation trip to Maine. I wrote this back in the beginning of May. Whoops.
Let’s go back in time to May 2013! ( After the jump)
I feel like this blog is slowing becoming a pop-up store. I post every once in a while, then come out with a few, and then go back into a hiatus.
I’m currently writing and working on post ideas for this blog. (really I am) I have some fun ideas, I just need to take sometime out of my day, and work on them! Wish me luck!

I know I’m being horrible with the posting, but now that I’m in the swing of my new job, I will make sure to dedicate my time to this blog.
I discovered this iPad app the other day called iFont Maker and I am in love with it! i’m trying to make cool fonts to use on photos and I think I created the right one! All you have to do is use a stylus and make all the letters in the alphabet. It then turns it into a ttf file that you can email. Very simple!
As I’m planning more posts, here is something I made with my new font!
This photo was taken in Sintra Portugal in March of 2011 when I was on Spring Break. Whenever I look at this picture I become aware of just how great traveling is! Have a great Wednesday!
I know, I know, I am horrible at keeping promises and even worse at posting. I really don’t know how all of those bloggers do it! My June however has been very busy, at least for my standards, now with no school I suddenly have free time!
I realized that It’s much easier to give you bullet points of what I’ve been up to then to and then spend time working on all the other posts I have in mind. This weekend I will not travel, and will be sitting down, and finally finishing up the 6 posts that I have begun to write, that’s right ladies and gentlemen 6! So here’s a quick overview of my month and some pictures!
The List: Continue reading
Here is the first inspiration board, and it’s of…Morocco! Anyone who knows me knows that I’ve wanted to go to Morocco for a very long time. You may even recall a post announcing I was going to morocco, well as you can guess… that fell through. We technically didn’t have enough students to go on the trip. I was beyond upset. Anyhow, I WILL get to Morocco one of these days. I am far too determined to give up that dream.
