Well we got our wedding photos back last night, and it’s given me a few realizations: 1. I am beautiful *hair flip* whatever- I said it, I’ll never be that pretty again. 2. @colormebrian is a god for making me beautiful 3. I’m buying a film camera ASAP 4. I don’t deserve the people that made this day so special 5. I have the greatest friends and family on earth 6. Everything is beautiful, and I wish I could live at the @hermitagehotel 7. I have a newfound love for black and white photos 8. If you love yourself, you’ll hire @kristinsweeting for your wedding. That is all. Hope you’re all ready for a wedding photo/travel blog combo for the next 900 years ✌🏼.

Once a year, do something or visit a place that makes you feel small. Don’t you
Once a year, do something or visit a place that makes you feel small. Don’t you dare forget how tiny and fragile our lives are in comparison to our great big world. It’s been a minute since I posted on Instagram! I needed a break, and I’m glad I let myself have one. I’m gearing up to visit my 2nd new wonder of the world- Machu Picchu! I’m so hopeful that it blows me away like the Grand Canyon did last year. And now I’m distracting myself from the Sunday Scaries- am I the only one that reliably gets extra anxious on Sundays?! When’s the last time you did something or visited a place that took your breath away? And where was it because I need to add it to my bucket list!!

Some of y’all have never had a photo shoot with yourself in a luxurious hotel room while you waited on your husband to finish up with work, and it shows. But actually this was one of the most fun things I’ve ever done. I got to the @tryonparkhotel early to meet Matt back when he was interning in Charlotte, and when I saw the robes I just couldn’t help myself. I spent an hour jumping on the beds, flipping through the TV channels, photographing the hotel room, and then I whipped out the remote live shooting with my camera and had a blast getting these shots. I felt like Kevin McAllister in the Plaza hotel! It took YEARS for me to get the level of confidence to post a photo of just myself on Instagram, let alone to admitting online to a bunch of friends, family, and strangers that I totally posed for these and took them myself. Confidence and security in who I am has been an amazing byproduct of blogging for me. But it’s not something you’ll hear people discussing very often on Instagram or any social media platform. And it’s not something that has come naturally to me for most of my life. If any content you’re consuming makes you feel insecure or like your life isn’t good enough, remember to closely examine the situation. Only the good stuff makes it onto the Internet, and few people will share the bloopers and real moments. All of this crap is edited (seriously do you really think my skin glistens in the sun everywhere I go?!) and if something seems too good to be true, it probably is. We are all human here. And inside even the most seemingly confident person is a person FULL of insecurities and a past. So this weekend, I challenge you to step out of your comfort zone and let go of some of those insecurities. Whether that means asking someone out, wearing an outfit you weren’t confident enough to try out, or having a photo shoot in a hotel room ALONE. (I know I am SUCH a dork- but I don’t even care because life is too short).

Top 10 favorite memories/feelings of my life: 1. My wedding 2. Graduating from Auburn 3. Playing with a baby elephant in Thailand 4. Meeting Taylor Swift 5. Every time I enter the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World 6. Eating in Nyhavn in Copenhagen while we listened to an acoustic guitarist and it truly was everything that I had dreamed about since I was 8 7. The thrill of doing CPR for the first time 8. Every time I’ve ever heard the chimes of the Duomo in Florence ring. 9. When things finally clicked and I learned how to shoot in manual. 10. That time today when I shared a semi-controversial opinion on social media about my thoughts on these viral accounts dedicated to posting skimpy bikini ‘travel’ photos (and how they can negatively impact both women and travel bloggers) and while I was fully prepared to receive some level of backlash, instead I was surprised and it sparked SO MANY productive, positive conversations about female empowerment, positive body image, and mental health. And I felt like I truly used my tiny platform to initiate good conversations and ideas. I truthfully think that each of you are such amazing, intelligent, kind-hearted people and I have the highest opinions of you all. 💕 Thank you so much for being you. And major takeaway from today: Instagram isn’t real life. Follow people that make you feel good and inspire you. Stand up for what you believe in even if it means taking a risk. And for goodness sake, support accounts with substance and purpose. . . . . . . . #teamkaptainkenny#traveldaily#elephantjunglesanctuary#thailandinsider#mentalwellness#sheisnotlost#darlingescapes#traveldames#travelwomen#bucketlisttrip#chiangmaithailand#gltlove#solofemaletraveler#roamtheworld#worldofwanderlust#passportcollective#shewhowanders#travelinbetween#theeverygirltravels#thetraveltag

QUESTION: What’s something you’ve encountered during your travels that you feel
QUESTION: What’s something you’ve encountered during your travels that you feel is unappreciated or not nearly popular enough? . . The little details of Italy are in my opinion the most under appreciated works of art in the world. Like seriously WHY don’t we have anything like this in the US?!?! . . I low key have a crazy obsession with European cathedrals. The facade of this cathedral is gorgeous and pink and makes my heart so happy. This cathedral in Bologna is really unique because it was originally planned to be the largest cathedral in the world. When the Vatican City learned about these plans, the funds for the cathedral in Bologna mysteriously disappeared. 👀 🤷🏽‍♀️ 🤔 . . For that reason, this pink facade only extends about halfway up the cathedral, giving it a very unique look. Bologna is such an interesting city, jam packed with FOOD, culture, and history. It’s only a wonder why it hasn’t become a major tourism hotspot in Italy. Have you ever visited Bologna before? . . . . . #darlingescapes#meettheworld#passportcollective#travelgirlsgo#traveldaily#thetraveltribe#travelguides#travelbloggerlife#condenasttraveler#theprettycities#thetraveltag#travelgoals#passportready#iamtb#travelguide#wandermore#lppathfinders#bucketlisttravel#bologna_city#topitalyphoto#bologna#spg#natgeotraveler#bolognaitaly#italytravel#bolognawelcome#tkkeurope#forbestravelguide#natgeotravel

Day dreaming about the Arizona desert, the 110 degree summers, and blue skies that I don’t deserve. ☀️ Is it just me, or does everyone else always crave the season we aren’t in? . . Things I’ve done today: emailed Peruvian tourism companies, drank 2 cups of coffee when I really only needed one, wrote a blog post, published a different blog post, went for a walk, saw a dog, spent 2 hours watching dog videos on YouTube, wrote everything down that I had completed today in my @erincondren planner so I could cross it off and feel accomplished, thought about exercising (still haven’t exercised), researched if I’m too young for prophylactic botox (because ya girl talks with her eyebrows), looked at pictures of alpacas in Peru, brain stormed ideas for blog posts, danced to Ariana Grande in my workout clothes (STILL haven’t worked out), and wrote this caption. . . Sometimes I feel a little scatter brained and like I can’t accomplish anything. Sometimes my ADHD gets the best of me, but in a way, the organized chaos keeps me entertained while being somewhat productive. Can you relate? What have you accomplished today?! (Even if it was just getting out of bed!) . . . . . #travelgirlsgo#passportcollective#scottsdalearizona#absolutelyscottsdale#visitarizona#arizonadesert#desertbotanicalgarden#summertravels#girlsthatwander#darlingescapes#sheisnotlost#arizona_hiking#phoenixarizona#goldenhourphotography#meettheworld#teamkaptainkenny#traveldaily#girlsborntravel#scottsdaleaz

I was originally gonna make my caption something whimsical and flavorless like “Day dreaming ✨” but the truth is I just accidentally melted my plastic shower curtain in the dryer after being mistaken for a 14 year old at the grocery store. And I just felt called to send some raw truths crashing into your Instagram feed. 😂 If you’re having a rough day, don’t worry, nobody is perfect 👌🏼 . . Many of you are asking about an update regarding our Peru flights and to answer your questions- no we STILL don’t have it ticketed yet 🙄 trying to be patient but it’s difficult to not feel discouraged. I appreciate everyone’s positive thoughts!! You guys are so fabulous ❤️ . . Unrelated, but what are you doing on this fine Tuesday? Staying warm hopefully? I’ve been at home blogging and cleaning all day and am finally gonna make a yummy dinner. What’re you eating for dinner tonight?! Anyone have any fun recipes you wanna share with me? 😋 . . Photo inspired by @brightonkeller you guys should def go follow her if you don’t already! She is so fab! . . . . . . #femaletravelbloggers#gltlove#sheisnotlost#passportcollective#teamkaptainkenny#lppathfinders#thetraveltag#girlsdreamtravel#thetraveltribe#theprettycities#iamtb#wandermore#condenasttraveler#meettheworld#passportready#travelguides#bucketlisttravel#travelbloggerlife#darlingescapes#travelgoals#travelgirlsgo#girlsthatwander#dametraveler#travelguide#wearetravelgirls#travelgirlsgo#instareality

It’s so easy to post all the pretty travel pictures and memories, but really home life is pretty spectacular, too. And @kristinsweeting makes us look pretty damn good!! . . I’m so grateful that I found my person that won’t judge me for dancing in my pajamas and sings in really weird voices with me while we clean our apartment. Here’s to watching the bachelor together every Monday night from here to eternity 🌹 . . . . . . . . #winterwedding#couplesgoals#newlywedlife#nashvillewedding#bridesmagazine#nashvillebrides#theknotrealweddings#creativetravelcouples#nashvilleweddingplanner#bridalguide#thehermitagehotel#dreamwedding#brides_style#weddingwire#southernbrides#bridesrealweddings#stylemeprettyweddings#marthastewartweddings#engagedlife#visitnashville#femaletravelbloggers#nashvillegram#bloggersofinstagram#marthaweddings#weddingphotography

What a snow day in Nashville looks like. If you’re from up north, you may not be impressed. But the way I see it, it takes less to make us happy down south 😊 ✨ What’s the weather like where you are today? . . Today has been so great. I woke up late, sipped coffee slowly, booked a trip to Peru with points, and went to Top Golf with my family. We froze our butts off, but our laughing kept us warm. 💕 🥰 . . . . #lppathfinders#femaletravelbloggers#teamkaptainkenny#thetraveltag#thetraveltribe#bloggersofinstagram#gltlove#sheisnotlost#girlsdreamtravel#travellikeagirl#nashvilleblogger#nashville#snowday#nashvillegram#beanboots#visitnashville#thetraveltag#passportcollective#nashvillelife

Double post today, sue me!! 🇮🇹 On this cold and grey January evening, I’m feeling far more inspired by the colors of Venice than I am by my own environment. They say if you don’t like your environment, change it. So that’s what I’ll do. I’ll curl up and flip through photos, and if I close my eyes tight enough, I can taste the Adriatic Sea. If you could close your eyes and appear anywhere in the world right now, where would it be? I’m not sure why I don’t share more landscapes on here, but I think that’s about to change. I love being behind the camera so much more than I like being photographed. There’s a certain level of creativity that you just can’t experience when you’re the one being photographed. Not to mention, I have SO MUCH MORE pride in the landscapes and portraits I take than the ones I’m in. I need to stop doing what I think I should do and focus my energy on doing what I love. Like seriously who made the rule that I had to be pretty and beautiful and smiling and even PRESENT in all of my Instagram photos?! Maybe that should be my new year’s resolution for 2019... . . . . . #UPOTY#travelphotograph#natgeotraveler#tkkeurope#passportready#travelgoals2019#bucketlisttravel#thetraveltribe#tkkitaly#meettheworld#thetraveltag#teamkaptainkenny#lppathfinders#forbestravelguide#visitvenice#travelguides#spg#italyphoto#marriott#italyvacation#iamtb#topitalyphoto#veniceitaly#visititaly#condenasttraveler#coastaltown#theprettycities

It’s been a minute since I’ve introduced myself and there’s a lot of new faces around so I thought I may as well say hi! I’m Danielle! I’m a 24 year old critical care nurse that’s obsessed with travel and photography. Here’s a few things you may not know about me! 1. I have a bit of an unhealthy obsession with coffee. I could drink it all day and night and never get sick of it. ☕️ 2. I always wanted to get into photography but couldn’t afford a camera. 📷 I bought my first camera with my first ever paycheck as a nurse and the obsession has only grown ever since. 3. I have recently become semi-addicted to watching the bachelor. 🌹 Don’t ask me why, I will never be able to explain why I’m addicted to the drama. 4. When I’m sad, I like to watch YouTube videos of kids getting puppies as Christmas presents. 5. I have the mentality of a 5 year old. I believe in Magic, have dreams, and watch mainly Disney movies. ✨ . . Your turn! Tell me something about yourself that I wouldn’t know from your profile! 👯 . . . . . #sheisnotlost#travelgirlsgo#darlingescapes#thetraveltag#passportready#thetraveltribe#tkkeurope#tkkitaly#lppathfinders#travelgoals#forbestravelguide#bucketlist2019#meettheworld#teamkaptainkenny#firenzetoday#florenceduomo#duomofirenze#gettoknowme#bloggersofinstagram#travelbloggerlife#gltlove

“We take photos as souvenirs to moments otherwise gone” 🌎 ✨ . . Wanna know where my happy place is? Those peaceful early morning hours in a foreign city when the merchants are rushing to make deliveries and the tourists are still asleep. The quiet peacefulness of those moments are what make me feel alive. I would trade all the sleep, every museum, and every tourist attraction just to wander and observe a city during while the sun rises and I breathe that early morning air. . . . . #lppathfinders#marriott#visitvenice#tkkeurope#condenast#girlsborntotravel#italyphoto#travellikeagirl#spg#wearetravelgirls#femaletravelbloggers#darlingescapes#italyvacation#sheisnotlost#girlsthatwander#veniceitaly#girlslovetravel#thetraveltag#passportready#girlsdreamtravel#travelgirlsgo#thetraveltribe#dametraveler#tkkitaly#girlsborntravel#visititaly#topitalyphoto#theprettycities#iamtb#travelguide

I always say “I don’t know how people worship any place else,” and the truth is, I don’t. Why we ever stopped building such beautiful and delicately detailed churches I will never know. . . I always hear people say they get burned out of looking at European cathedrals, but not me. There’s something magical about knowing something so beautiful was built with such little technology. . . . . #veniceitaly#italyvacation#visitvenice#condenast#italyphoto#tkkitaly#dametraveler#wearetravelgirls#tkkeurope#globetravel#marriott#spg#sheisnotlost#girlslovetravel#passportready#travelgoals#thetraveltribe#lppathfinders#femaletravelbloggers#travellikeagirl#thetraveltag#girlsdreamtravel#femaletravelblogger#travelgirlsgo#girlsborntotravel#forbestravelguide#meettheworld#bucketlist2019#girlsthatwander#darlingescapes

Marry the man that will hang the moon and stars for you and then gives you the window seat so you can sleep on long flights ❤️ 📷: @kristinsweeting . . Unrelated, but I’m really glad these shoes were caught on camera because they didn’t make it to the ceremony 😳 About 20 minutes before the ceremony, I threw my shoes off and didn’t look back. My dad thought it was hilarious. I figured it’s my party, I’ll go barefoot if I want to! 😂 . . As all you lovely people get into the romantic mood for Valentine’s Day, I’m cooking up some articles for couples travel.
