Let’s Explore: Downtown Adventures


One of my great friends Alyssa is an extremely talented blogger, and her blog is my personal favorite to read!  I highly recommend checking it out, you can find her at Somewhere Between Vogue and Van Gogh!

We had such an amazing day, and I feel incredibly blessed to have her as a friend!  It’s so much fun being friends with someone who is so talented with blogging, and it makes collaborations and brainstorming incredible!  Also I highly recommend stopping by Spring Sweet, and AlpenRose for an amazing soy vanilla latte!

I hope you enjoyed a little glimpse into my lifestyle, and I can’t wait to share more with you!  I have a very special post coming up, so make sure you subscribe so you don’t miss out!  I’ll talk to you very soon!

xo, Tessa
