WorkSpace Tour: Walk and Talk NOLA

As you can tell from the blog, one of my favorite features to do is workspace tours. So I was intrigued when I heard about Walk and Talk NOLA.

Loomed NOLA

Workspace Tour: Loomed NOLA

I’m always impressed when I come across people who have been abroad, experienced a new culture and its traditions, and bring it back with them when they return home. So when I heard about Molly and Paul, owners of Loomed NOLA, I had to get their backstory. The two were living in Turkey and came across […] Read more…

A Little Happy travels LA 182

Day Trip: LA HWY 182

Sometimes taking the road less traveled is exactly what a wanderlusting heart needs. A few weeks back my day job had me trekking down to the steamy bayou town of Thibodaux, LA. With a camera in tow, I programmed my iPod with some Slim Harpo and Johnny Cash tunes and hit the road. A happy […] Read more…
