Happy Valentine’s Day and 10 year anniversary @sinagoodarzi 🥹 An entire decade of me and you 😭 Spending my life loving you and Salem will be the greatest thing I ever get to do. 📸 : @lejsphotography

I’ve learned so many things since being in India 🇮🇳 ✅ Indians love to drink and will never miss an opportunity to celebrate something ✅ Indians exude a service personality. They want to help make you happy, fed and comfortable at all times. ✅ The limit on food + munchies does not exist. You can eat at all hours of the day and have exceptional food ✅ It’s a 3rd world country in the “raw” parts of India except people are joyous and children are much easily entertained by small details ✅ The drivers are WILD. The streets are filled with people but somehow I always felt safe 😅 This country has already shown me so much hospitality, love and alcohol 😂 and I’m excited for the rest of the journey 🫶🏼🎉 #indiatravelgram #travelindia #indiapictures #indoreindia

If you know me then you KNOW this is totally possible 🤣 I’ve heard of Delhi Belly and I’m trying to stay ahead of the curve okay? When we traveled to Bali, Indonesia wayyy back when—everyone kept telling me about Bali Belly. Don’t drink the water, get food from reputable places etc. I didn’t listen (of course) and nothing ever happened. This time around—being older and wiser 😅, I’m not going to take my chances. ✅ Travel Toilet Paper ✅ Imodium Check, check. #indiatravel #internationaltravel #dehlibelly

Kids are a lifetime of love and responsibility. Travel doesn’t stop once you have them but, it changes. Now is not the season to take spontaneous trips to see friends. Now is not the season to pack my car for a 30 day solo road trip. Now is not the season to dance the night away at a music festival or take midweek vacation because I’m feeling sad. I’ve had that season already and holy shit, I’m so grateful for it. Did Covid ruin my travel plans for a few years? Yes. But I spent most of my 20’s leading into my 30’s taking trip after trip. Experiencing things and going places some people could only dream of. I’ve had the craziest adventures all over the world and even though I yearn for those experiences still—it’s just not that season right now. Now that things have settled, Sina and I get to travel together again—just the two of us, like old times 🥹 And soon enough, we will be able to show Salem this vast, beautiful planet I’ve had the pleasure of exploring. Recognize the season of life you’re in and let it be. Don’t rush it. Don’t envy others. And don’t let it pass you by. Every season of life is its own adventure 🫶🏼🥰 #travelyoung #travelblogger #traveloften #traveltheglobe

Why is mom guilt one of the strongest emotions to ever exist ☹️—at least it feels that way. Sina and I are about to head out on our first international trip since 2019 😳 (thanks Covid) …but all I can really think about is leaving Salem. The last year has put such a damper on things trying to get this house built so we desperately need time to reconnect. I know this trip is long over due and much needed 🥲 and I will try my hardest to enjoy it 😅 Recharging, reconnecting and ADVENTURE’S together only make for better parents coming back. Even though it’s hard—we ALL deserve time away from responsibilities, whether you’re a parent or not. PTO is there for a reason right? If you’re looking for a sign 🪧 to get away to help recharge yourself—this is it. You deserve it 🫶🏼 Stay tuned for all the India 🇮🇳 content! I’m so excited to feel ignited and inspired again through travel 😭

Until I got older and started having conversations with others, I realized this type of love and relationships with parents are not the norm. People are genuinely shocked when I tell them even the small details that my parents do for me, Sina and Salem. I’ve never once questioned their love for me and never once have I had to question their love for my “new” family. My heart genuinely hurts for people, especially around the holidays when they yearn for this type of love and acceptance. To anyone that is struggling this holiday season with parents, family members or in laws, just know—it’s not you. It was never your fault. Some people just aren’t cut out to be parents—and if you are or have plans to become a parent, only YOU can break the cycle! I realize how lucky I am to experience this and I’m sending so much love to anyone out there that doesn’t get to. 🥹🫶🏼

Hey babes, Did you miss me?! 😏 It’s crazy to think the last time we were in NYC I was 3 months pregnant about to embark on a yacht trip down the East Coast. Even in pregnancy I felt more “fearless” than I do today. On Saturday we head back to NYC, but this time with our baby girl in tow. It’s her very first flight—a moment I’ve been waiting for since the day she was born…but I can’t seem to shake all the anxious feelings. With everything going on in the world, it’s hard NOT to get wrapped up in the chaos. Wondering day in and day out if I’ll be able to keep her safe 🥺 My perspective has changed drastically over the last year and it’s a lot to process. The world has turned into such a dark, grim place but I’m determined to transition back to that once fearless traveler and show Salem all the beauty the world has to offer. Instagram and other platforms are meant to show the highs and highlight reels…but I wish that THESE parts of traveling were discussed more…reality. Hopefully this post isn’t too bleak—just sharing my TRUE feelings as we head on our first flight, navigating a big city 🌆 with our baby girl. Xoxo

2022–the hardest yet most rewarding year of my life. I had the privilege of bringing the most beautiful baby girl into this world with a loving partner by my side. Each and every moment we’ve spent together over the last 8 months has been nothing short of magical. But just as life happens, it’s also taken away. I’ve experienced so much heartache, stress, and mental health lows while simultaneously feeling unconditional love, true fulfillment and happiness. What a fucking whirlwind it’s been 😅 Salem has taught me so much this year that I’ll be taking into 2023… — How to have more patience with myself and others — How to slow down, be present and soak up every seemingly mundane moment — How to see magic and excitement in the small things Just to name a few… Thank you sweet Salem for being the teacher I didn’t know I needed, and especially for making me a mom 😭 Thank you to @sinagoodarzi for being the greatest dad and never leaving my side when things got too hard… or when our sleep deprivation got the best of us 🤪 Salem doesn’t realize yet how lucky she is 🥹 I’m not sure how we will top this year but I’m going into it with an open mind, kinder heart and hopefully, more sleep 🥲

Just when I feel like I’m getting my head above water—life has a way of pulling you back under. Yesterday, we unexpectedly had to say goodbye to the best boy 😭 After getting in some diluted chemical water we rushed him to the vet only to find out he had been silently dealing with DCM, something extremely common in the Doberman breed. One day he was a perfectly happy and seemingly healthy dog, and the next, he’s gone. In hindsight—there were a few signs that could have been a cause for concern—but it’s like going into the doctors office for a cough and asking them to check for cancer. DCM affects up to 48% of Dobermans and there is a hereditary component to it—which basically means there was nothing we could do but give you the best and most fulfilled life possible. The vet said it was just a coincidence that he got into the chemical water and the universe has its way of working itself out in the weirdest ways. If he hadn’t gotten into the water—he would have only had a few more months to live and one day we’d wake up to him being gone without any understanding of why. The best case scenario would have been you, in and out of hospitals with no possibility of returning to your normal self. No more doing the one thing you loved in the whole world which was playing fetch with your orange ball ☹️ I would do anything and I mean ANYTHING to throw that ball for you one last time 😓 Sadly, Sina and I had to make the decision to let you go. I never imagined spending your last moments together in a sterile vet office with nothing but pain in your eyes. At least we were there to love, hold and be the last thing you saw before you crossed that rainbow 🌈 bridge. This pain feels all too familiar yet so different this time. I hate thinking that I have to live with the memory of you longer than I was able to know you. I would say that I love you more than you loved us but we all know that’s not possible. The silence is deafening without you. I doubt I’ll make it to heaven, but if I do—please save some energy for us to play ball again. I love you more than your big heart will ever know—until we meet again 💔

My first post in over 7 months 😳— took some time off to reevaluate everything and obviously, I had a baby 😂 When I started this page/ my blog over 6 years ago—my intention was to always make travel feel more attainable and relatable to the average person, yet here I am sitting on my couch with no real travel 🧭 plans in sight. I find myself mourning the loss of the person I once was—a spontaneous adventure traveler 🧳 who would pick up and go whenever I felt like it. I’d book last minute trips, visit friends all over the world 🌎 and never bat an eye 👁 Summers were filled with road trips 🚗, music 🎶 festivals and weekend getaways… Then I became a parent…and all of that changed. Some people would say that going from 1-2 kids is hard, but going from a fully functioning adult 👩🏻 to now a parent 🤰🏻who is solely responsible for keeping another person alive has been extremely hard 😔 I feel like Covid stripped me of my travel ✈️ plans—I wasn’t able to hit 30 countries before my 30th birthday and I realized that I haven’t been out of the country since 2018 😭 It’s okay to mourn the person you once were, but instead of wallowing in all the “what ifs” and “should haves” I’m going to embrace this new found love 💗 of being a mother and seeing the world 🗺 through my little girls eyes 🥺A statement I never thought 💭 I’d get to make. She’s not a burden but instead, a teacher who challenges me each and every day to get out of my comfort zone and reinvent the woman I use to be 🤩 So..to the woman I once was—thank you for building a foundation where I feel mentally and physically capable of taking on this new role and prepping me for a lifetime of travel and new experiences. I can’t wait to explore the world with you my sweet Salem 🥲… And I hope you guys will come along for the journey! 💜

Happy birthday 🎉 to ME! Wanna know a secret?! I was crying 😢 last night in the shower 🚿 and no it wasn’t because of my raging hormones 🤪 I’ve been so overwhelmed with life lately that pregnancy has actually been the easiest part of it all 😯 I was fully prepared to spend my birthday 🎂 feeling stressed but then… I woke up this morning to the best neighbor dropping off a gift 🎁 at 7:30 am, and an inbox 📨 full of the sweetest messages from the best friends and family 😭😭 At that moment I realized that yes, life is fucking hard sometimes 😣—not just for me but for most people. The difference is, I have friends all over the world 🌍 who are there to love 💕 and support me even through the dark times 🥺 and they never let me forget what a badass I am 😝 Idgaf if it’s corny or cliche. It’s true. You guys know who you are and I’m forever grateful for this roller coaster 🎢 of a life with y’all by my side 💕 So instead of wallowing in the chaos that’s been my life for the past 4 months, I’m celebrating 🥳 (in the most sober way possible 🥴). A beautiful baby girl on the way, an amazing new kitchen that should be done ✅ any day, a fiancé that treats me like a queen 👑 and the best friends and family a baby mama could ask for! Thank you to everyone who has and will continue to celebrate ME today! I love you 🥰 PS. Bump pic in NYC 🤰🏻

I guess the only thing I’m gonna be for Halloween 👻 this year is SOBER 🥲😂🥳 (peep the last pic to see how times have changed 😅) #OGbabygirl due April 2022 💖 PS. Posting these close to Halloween to give a slight hint at her name 🧙🏻‍♀️ PSS. Yes sorry, all my IG videos of me drinking have been fake 😝 since Las Vegas. I’m just happy to finally quit living a double life 🙂

The Ultimate Ski Trip Packing Guide

Find yourself a pair of warm snow boots that keep your feet dry + have a good grip. IDC how cold it might be outside, bring 1-2 t-shirts to lounge in…cold outside means blazing hot inside trying to stay warm • // can be electric or just a mini one, either way, your body will thank you after a long day on the slopes • makes it easy to stay hydrated on the slopes! I usually find some great stuff at: Yes it will take some time and some digging to find great pieces for your ski trip, but I LOVE a good deal and you will have more money to spend on important things (like food and alcohol 😉)

An Honest Proper Wild Review : Natural Energy Shots for Every Type of Person

When I’m not traveling the world, attending networking events or creating content, I’m running a full-time business behind closed doors. I like to think of myself as having a natural high on life, but it’s safe to say that we could all use a little extra help So when I had the opportunity to try out the natural energy shots from Proper Wild, I thought this would be a great time to try out some new fuel for us and give it a proper review. Maybe you’re like me, a sluggish entrepreneur with 10000 things on their plate and needs that extra energy and brain boost to fuel your life.
