North Island New Zealand | Auckland & Waiheke Island


We flew into Auckland for our 2nd Anniversary trip from Tokyo via Air New Zealand, direct, and landed around 7:30 am on May 25th. The flight was long, but it was so nice that there was an affordable direct flight! We, foolishly, took a cab from the airport to Sky City, leaving our bags at the airport to pick up later. Who wants to carry their suitcases around all day?! Well, after a $90NZD ride, we quickly learned that we needed to find a better way to return to the airport to gather our things.

Okinawa Bloggers Lunch | July

A few months ago, I came across Katie's blog and she was showing off some awesome pictures from her recent Bloggers Lunch in San Diego. It got my gears turning and I thought, "Why don't we do this in Okinawa?!" It seemed like a great way to meet people with common interests and, most importantly, gave me an excuse to have lunch at an awesome cafe!

Happy Independence Day!!!

Wonderful Wednesday

With summer, officially, blessing us with its presence, I thought it was time to start a new, permanent segment! I've been wanting to have a day that features only photos with, maybe, a short description for you all to enjoy and I'm working hard to be a more consistent blogger. So, dedicating Wednesdays to all things wonderful seems like a great solution! Enjoy!

Geneva Vanderzeil is the author behind A Pair & A Spare. She talks about travel, crafting, design, and food. She's a blogger after my own heart.

The scone I enjoyed yesterday. There is a new cupcake/scone shop that I found & I'll be sharing it with you all soon.

Exploring the world with My Love.

The incredible support from friends and family as I venture down my small business path.
