    Our ride

    It was a day spent on a school bus that took us from winery to winery somewhere in Missouri. At each stop, we would pile off of the bus and spread out blankets. We would kick off our shoes and arrange snacks while bottles were purchased and glasses were filled. At the first stop, we […]

    Processed with VSCOcam with a6 preset

    Whenever I go to a new city I try to truly embrace the city. Instead of staying in a hotel, we opted for Airbnb and stayed with Jason and Dawn right in the heart of St. Louis. They were wonderful and recommended so many great places like Pi and Strange Donuts. Pi is a funky […]

    Mango Ginger Soda

    I’m sitting at a beat-up wooden counter facing a large window. I’m sipping a house-made mango-ginger soda and sharing a prosciutto-manchego sandwich. The bubbles in the soda are tiny and soft. The sandwich is delicious; chewy pretzel bread and a salty filling cuts the sweetness of the soda.
