    Earlier this month, we took our first family trip to Orcas Island, the largest of the San Juan Islands off the coast of Washington, and I’ve been meaning to share some details around the trip ever since.

  5. A Family Weekend in Los Angeles

    A few months ago, we took a family trip to Los Angeles. We’d both been many times before, both together and separately, but we’d never really explored the city as adults.

  6. City Guide: Santa Fe, New Mexico

    Santa Fe, New Mexico has long been a place that I’ve daydreamed about. Perhaps because I’ve always admired the life and work of Georgia O’Keefe or because I’ve lately come to really love mountains and deserts.

  11. City Guide: Tulum, Mexico

    I’ve been to Mexico on a number of occasions over the course of my life. Most of my visits were to border cities that offered cheap booze, affordable seafood, mediocre beaches, and an overabundance of tacky (and wacky) souvenirs. Back in my college days, I frequently hopped the border to go dancing in Tijuana and, Continue…
