As writers and travelers, we spend a lot of time seeking inspiration. Inspiration doesn’t always come in the form of sandy beaches and mountain tops. When we aren’t planning our next adventure, you can find us curled up reading our favorite books, jamming out to treasured tunes, and watching our most beloved films and series. This is the place you can keep up on our latest media binges, literary affairs, musical memories, and deepest educational dives. We hope you find these items as entertaining and, oftentimes, life changing as we do!

With love and peace, enjoy!
