Hi there! Welcome to my blog – I’m so glad you’re here!
I originally started leah b lively as a creative outlet and to share my travel itineraries with friends, family, & others who love travel as much as I do! I always spend a ton of time planning my travel adventures and truly get a lot of joy from it, so I wanted to share what I learned with others.
Since I started the blog just over a year ago, it has become so much more to me. I love being able to recommend places, create & curate experiences, and just spur ideas that give people joy and lasting memories.
I’m 27 and live in Minneapolis, Minnesota with my sweet husband (Mitch) and adorable pup (Charlie). I’ve lived in the midwest my whole life. I’m from Lakeville, MN and went to the University of Wisconsin-Madison for undergrad – go Badgers!
Since I can remember, I have always loved to travel. As a young kid, I was very fortunate to travel with my family often. Our family flew for free, because my dad was an aircraft mechanic for Northwest Airlines until I was in middle school.
A lot of my best childhood memories were made on these family vacations with my parents and two younger sisters. We went all over the US! It was through these family vacations to places all around the US, I realized when I grew up I wanted to continue traveling and experiencing new places as much as I could.
Since graduating college in 2015, I’ve started to travel more and more. I’ve really found that unplugging from work and daily life to travel is a priority for me. Most of my travel adventures are with my amazing husband, Mitch. We love experiencing new cities, history, different cultures, and enjoying beautiful places!
I hope through my blog that you gather ideas and draw inspiration to make your own travel dreams a reality and live lively!
