Staying at Tanque Verde Ranch

Hiiii! Hope you’ve enjoyed the afternoon. I’m getting back in the routine over here: hit up the gym this morning, Livi and I went to the park and Trader Joe’s to replenish the sad post-vacation fridge, and I’m slowly tackling laundry mountain. 

While we were in Tucson, we had the opportunity to stay at an entirely new location and enjoy some authentic Arizona adventures. When Tanque Verde Ranch reached out to me about visiting their property, I was so excited to check it out. Last time I was there was for my Tata’s 80th birthday party, when I was in middle school! I could vaguely remember the food and scenic landscape, and was thrilled for the chance to participate in some new Tucson experiences with the family. It was also awesome timing: we’d already planned a trip to Tucson to see the fam, so it worked out perfectly.

In love

Friday Faves

Hi from Tucson!! Liv and I got here yesterday morning, after an early Orange Theory class -it was hard to wake up, but I always love to get in an early workout on travel days- and packstravaganza. My last flight alone with Liv was when she was 4 months old (to Vegas!), and just as […]

Weekend in the desert

Hi! How was your weekend? Ours was a fun whirlwind of travel adventures: we made a roadtrip to Tucson.
