Journal entry from Nov. 27, 2014: “Such a great day with Nan! We shopped downtown at The Bay, got to sit at the chef’s table at Richmond Station (AMAZING), followed by a great dinner at the Jolly Miller. It’s so cool that we have this special bond. Nan is so fantastic. We even got free … More Things I’m Thankful For: Nan Edition
In the spirit of November/the holidays/Thanksgiving, and for the sake of mental health and positivity, I’ve been taking more time to think about the things I’m thankful for. Pretty high on that list is the state I now live in. So today, I give you: Colorado. I don’t think there are too many places I could … More Things I’m Thankful For: Colorado Edition
Yes, it has. It’s been one whole year (plus a few days- 10 to be exact) since we got back from our Eurotrip. One. Freaking. Year!! And, I’ll admit, even longer since I’ve posted on my blog… But I want to get back into the writing/blogging game again so here goes nothing. I figure the best … More Has It Really Been A Year Already?
We’re back! I know that’s no surprise to some of you, but I figured I’d make an official announcement. I don’t know where to begin on the last month and a half. Eventually I gave up trying to blog from my phone and spent that time enjoying the wonderful countries we were in instead. Time … More Let me catch you up…
Today is brought to you by coffee, kittens, henna tattoos & Netflix. Aaaand doctor’s appointments, packing and unemployment… It’s all about checks & balances, right? If you need me, I’ll be packing!
Traveling is an all-encompassing activity. It’s overwhelming, sometimes nerve-wracking, but full of experiences that would be hard to come across by staying at home. That’s part of what makes it worth it; the newness of it all. If you reject the food, ignore the customs, fear the religion, and avoid the people, you might better … More The 5 Senses of Travel
Fajitas & margaritas, a river cruise, summer wind & a good friend. Does a Wednesday night get any better?! I had the pleasure of joining my friend Bri on a dinner cruise in Hudson, Wisconsin this week. It was SO much fun to get dressed up, hop on a boat and travel down the St. Croix! … More An Evening on the St. Croix
I have a confession to make… I am a serial over-packer. Take this suitcase and backpack below for instance. The purple suitcase on the bottom (nicknamed “The Purple Monster”) is what I took to Canada last week for a 5-day trip. I repeat, a 5-day trip. Oh, the backpack on top you ask? That’s what … More Confessions of an Over-Packer
Got my last trip in before Europe and headed back to Sarnia, Ontario this weekend for the Hagan Family Reunion! We got shirts made this for the reunion this year and yes, I love them (see below). Girls got pink, boys got blue & the little ones got green. It was definitely easy to find us … More A Canadian Weekend
Last night brought perfect weather for an outdoor dinner. Veggie lasagne, wine & catching up with family made the evening even better. And to wrap it up with this sunset? The so-called cherry on the proverbial pie…
