About Me



Welcome to To Travel & Beyond!

I am a Baltimore girl, celebrating this beautiful life with my husband. We live in a cute little house with our kitten, SharkBait, and I am sure you will see her often around these parts. I am a follower of Christ, Wedding and Event Planner, lover of travel, football fan (Go Ravens!) and a guacamole enthusiast.

I blog because I love sharing tales of my adventures, tips about blogging, my love for sharks and anything else that comes up during the day-to-day. Sharing travel stories and advice on how to travel no matter the budget are my favorite things to do. I want to encourage others to get out there and make their travel dreams come true. If there is a way to stick within a budget and travel as far and wide as you want, I would like to be able to show you that it can happen.

You will find that I am a hoarder of stationery, obsessed with Target, love singing along to Taylor Swift and #NauticalIsMyLoveLangauge. I attempt far too many DIYs for my skill level, fail at almost every recipe and chose a margarita over water a bit too much.

Welcome to the party!

I love making new friends, so drop me a line, follow me on instagram, tweet me some lyrics, send a carrier pigeon, or do whatever you do to communicate!

    I’m nearing 30 and still think about 22. I like to think that T Swift was onto something. Best year.

      It really was such a great year. She nailed it with the song.

    Your jersey over your wedding dress has to be one of the best things ever! Even though I’m nowhere near getting married, I think about how I’m going to incorporate my love of my team (go Arsenal!) into my wedding often!

    • http://totravelandbeyond.com/ Macy Volpe

      Thank you so much!! Unfortunately, this was one of the only ways my Husband let me include the Ravens in our wedding. I hope you remember to have a photo with a Arsenal jersey on, that would be so cute!
