Tyler and I started a travel blog called Rome by the Hour in the beginning of 2017. We were living and working in the Bay Area, very much cuddled up in the honeymoon phase. We traveled a lot on the weekends, at the end of work trips, and over the holidays. We launched the blog as a way to document our travels. At the end of 2018, we bought a house and moved down to San Diego right before I gave birth to our daughter Charlotte. I quit my job to be home with her, and then we got pregnant again and had Emmie in 2020. (We love to batch our life changes?).
Between the two babies and the pandemic, we have slowed down quite a bit in recent years. And while travel is still a huge part of our lives and we try to adventure as much as we can, we are loving this season of life at home in San Diego.
I've branched out in the past couple of years, so now I also write about beauty, books, wellness, and motherhood. I also love writing about San Diego because it's the best ever; we've had so much fun exploring with the girls.
