My friend Lori and I tend to do a lot of fitness oriented things together. We’ve run marathons and half marathons together, we take long walks and frequently share workout ideas.  We’ve been wanting to hike together for awhile now. To me, hiking seems like the best of all worlds – nature, friendship and a little exercise. What’s not to love?  And you all know how much I love my everyday adventures! When the first opportunity arose, we jumped at it. After much internet searching we settled on an area in Potomac, Maryland declared “DCs Best Day Hike” – the…

I’m a born and bred Maryland girl. I’ve lived here most of my life and loved every minute of it. If I’m being honest though, I don’t think I really appreciated my state until I moved to Nashville in my 20s. It became real clear real fast that I took for granted Maryland’s charm, not to mention proximity to places like D.C. and New York. And I really, REALLY missed being able to day trip it to Ocean City. Because who doesn’t need a little ocean breeze in their life? There tons of things to experience in Ocean City, I…

The Poconos is as perfect a getaway for a group of your gal pals as it is for you and your significant other.

  This was a hosted trip covered by Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau. I don’t know about you, but when I think of the Poconos, I think heart-shaped beds and champagne flute bathtubs.

So, recently my friend (and Pursuit co-founder) Sue and I went a bit rogue and decided to take a leadership leap and hustle ourselves up to New York City for a few days to attend the 2017 Inc. Women’s Summit. I didn’t know much about the Women’s Summit when I agreed to go, but Sue found it intriguing and suggested we attend together. If I’m being honest, I think we were initially more excited about the city experiences we had planned than the actual Summit content. Because, NEW YORK. And yes, we did it up prior to the event: shopping,…

5 Lessons I Learned While Traveling To London And Paris

  When I was a little girl I used to dream of traveling abroad. An avid reader, I quickly discovered literature that would let me vicariously experience lands that I hoped to one day visit. Summer after summer I would lay in the hammock in our front yard and read all the Jane Austen and Bronte sisters books I could get my hands on. I was obsessed. My hope was to graduate college, save some money and spend a year traveling and experiencing the world. Alas, life happened and the dream was delayed. It wasn’t until I almost lost my…
