Don’t get me wrong, I love traveling.  I just hate the getting there part.  The whole flying thing, meh.  Somewhere in my twenties I developed a fear of it.  But dangit, we can’t drive everywhere. So, I think I wanted to write this to help psych myself up for our upcoming trip.  Here are some […]

We bought our Europe tickets almost 7 months before our trip.  That was really our only solid, well-thought-out planning done for this adventure.  The rest was crammed in a couple hours, just 2 weeks before the trip 🙂 Honestly though, once the plane tickets are purchased the rest just falls into place.  We decided our […]

We loved our Airbnb in Amsterdam.  This place was so cool. Our host had such great style. We stayed just out of the city center in a super rad area.  Being mere minutes from all of the sites, while avoiding the touristy crowds was perfect for us. The comforts of home were just outside our […]

Fortunate enough for us, D and I were able to take a few days after our wedding to relax in sunny Arizona.  Although, while we were there, it was chilly AZ.  Cloudy skies and upper 50’s…but, we were happy with it. It is crazy how literally over night your months of planning are complete.  You […]

Every year since I was about four or five my Dad has taken me on camping trips.  It all started with our neighbors and dear friends who invited us years ago.  We were hooked. We usually take at least two a year. A fall trip and a summer trip.  Since being away for school and now […]
