Happy Summer, friends! Yesterday was the official start of the summer and we couldn’t be more excited!

Every year, right around this time, Jay and I start getting the travel bug. We start dreaming of the new places we’d love to visit or the familiar places we’d like to re-visit. Today we’re reminiscing about Dubrovnik, Croatia, the first stop on our honeymoon adventure in the Western Balkans.

Machu Picchu is one of the most amazing places that Jay and I have visited together. Even before we met, it had been at the top of both of our travel lists for a long time so we made sure we spent enough time there to fully explore the Lost City of the Incas.

Wow, I can’t believe this is already our 3rd post in this series… this spring sure is flying by! I hope it will slow down a bit, though, because May is my favorite month and I’d like to thoroughly enjoy it.

Welcome to our new travel photography project! As many of you know, Jay and I have always loved to travel. Before we met, we had both traveled a lot on our own and those travel experiences were definitely something that drew us to each other from the start.

I rarely post pictures on this blog about my personal life, but I’m so excited with this set of pictures that I simply had to share! As some of you know, Jay and I were married this summer in Rome.
