My perfect way to end the summer is with a road trip! Seriously, I can just get into my car and drive a few hours to get out of my hometown, see amazing sights, and visit friends who live in other parts of the country — how great is that?! Since camping has been on…

Lisbon, Portugal

“So why’d you decide to go to Portugal?” There could be any number of answers: the history, the beaches, the nightlife, the food, the people. My answer? “I found cheap plane tickets.” Yes, I went to Portugal not because it was on my bucket list (although I had heard great things about the country) nor…

Exploring Boston

When friends move away, it’s always a bittersweet time. Bitter because now I can’t see my friends very often. Sweet because now I get to go visit them and explore their new city! So after a year of saying I was going to make the trek out to visit my friends who moved to Boston,…

My Iceland Adventure

It’s true — when I was younger, I didn’t think I’d stay in the area I grew up in for very long. But as I’ve…

Red, White, and Purple

I am usually out of town for the Fourth of July, so a good friend and I took the time to explore a few local treasures. Although we didn’t have a typical Fourth of July filled with BBQ and picnics, a laid back day of adventuring was perfect 🙂 We started out at Peace Valley Lavender Farm….

Morris Arboretum

Who knew we’d have such nice weather the day after Christmas? Some old friends and I wandered around Morris Arboretum catching up on life and just enjoying each other’s company. Here are a few photos I snapped that day!
