Holy smokes! Ireland is quite possibly one of the most breathtaking places on planet earth. I was lucky enough to spend a solid week there, driving around the country. These next few days I’m going to share a few of my favorite moments from the trip of a lifetime. It all started in Dublin. When Eamon and I got there, we were insanely jet lagged from the sleepless redeye we’d just deplaned. So we took a quick nap at The […]
As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve been etsy-ing it up lately. I’m proud to say that Jennifer’s Mondo Village of Greatness is now offering custom origami hangings and mobiles. The photos below are of a piece I made for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s annual gala in New York. It’s over 7ft. tall and 12 ft. wide. Take a closer look here. Buy a bundle of shapes for yourself here. Turn them into a mobile or garland on your own. Or you can use them […]
I wish I could eat the most important meal of the day in the heavens every morning. The Skydeck at Willis Tower lets you have your breakfast in the sky. Crazy, huh? There you are, alone and hanging off a glass edge, 103 floors up as you enjoy a buttered biscuit. It might have been in the middle of a snowstorm, but it was beautiful nonetheless. You can see straight down to the tiny speck people, barreling through the snow. Gotta love Chicago!

Have I mentioned that I have an Etsy page? Well look out world for Jennifer’ Mondo Village of Greatness! One of my favorite products is the custom origami. Take a look at the latest order I put together for a wedding. Pretty fun, huh? These little geometric goodies would be great for Christmas decorating or party garland or table filler for a centerpiece. Take a look for yourself at the different variations. You pick the color and I’ll make it […]
It finally happened. I made it to Canada, Vancouver to be exact. It was beautiful and so much bigger than I expected. In fact, it reminded me of Seattle with the architecture, well designed little shops, nearness to nature, and unfortunately the prevalence of homeless people. Even after five days of exploring, I saw so little of this great city that I’m already planning on a return trip. Similar to other great cities, Vancouver is sectioned into neighborhoods. Each one has its own […]
I recently got back from a trip across the beautiful state of Colorado. I started in Kim, moved along to San Jose, on to Loveland, then to Denver, and Fort Collins. Little did I know that Fort Collins is the mecca for craft beer drinkers. It’s home to tons of microbreweries and brewpubs, New Belgium Brewing Company being the one of the biggest. Folks visit from all over the world. I’m sure you’re familiar with their flagship amber ale, Flat […]
Hiking without knowing where the heck you’re going is my one of my favorite things to do (ill-advised though it may be). On my last trip to Colorado, the game plan was to drive toward some tall mountains and see what happened. We ended up in Idaho Springs, a quaint old mining town, then winded our way even higher up towards a few trails. All I wanted was to get to a peak, and peak we did on Chief Mountain. It was breathtaking […]
I got to go on quick tour of Downtown Denver a few weeks ago. The city is littered with art and interesting architecture–which I love! Here are some of my findings. (Keep your eyes open for similarities I photographed between some of the structures and my mesh sneakers.) Dancers is a steel and fiberglass statue by Jonathan Borofsky. The couple stands outside of the Denver Performing Arts Complex. It was created in an effort to demonstrate, “everything is connected and all is […]
Devil’s Backbone Nature Trail near Loveland, Colorado is quite the sight. The protruding rocks poking their jagged edges along the hillside tell an old story that only geology is able to share. It doesn’t look too shabby dressed in fall, does it?!
