2017 New Year’s Resolutions

I’m not going to lie, spending New Year’s Eve in Havana, Cuba was definitely not my worst decision ever. It has been an absolute blast! From riding horses in Vinales to walking along the Malecon in Havana, Cuba is a photographers dream. For New Year’s Eve, Maggie and I went to Plaza Vieja, bought a…

Best of 2016

One of my favorite ways to end a year is to remind myself of all the things that made that year great. I’ll be honest, 2016 has been a rough one for me, both personally and because of what is happening around the world. It leaves me feeling conflicted. How can I be unhappy in…

Merry Christmas 2016

I just wanted to stop by real quick and wish everyone a very merry Christmas and happy holidays! Currently I’m packing for my upcoming trip to Cuba (more to come on that soon), finishing some last minute present wrapping and furiously cleaning my house from top to bottom before the dog sitter comes to stay….

2016 Book Review

It’s time for my annual (two years in a row makes it annual, right?) list of books that I read this year, and my personal review of each. I had a goal of reading more this year, but instead, I actually read less. It’s a bit disappointing since reading used to be such a large…

2016 Craft Projects

Call me a nerd. Call me crafty. Call me whatever you want. The truth is, despite how much I love traveling, I also love domestic hobbies as well.

2016 New Years Resolutions

I can’t believe it’s the new year already! I swear time just needs to slow down. I spent last night at my friends Keith and Lara’s house playing Exploding Kittens. It’s hysterical and worth playing if you haven’t yet. Every year I make resolutions for the new year. I know some people disagree with the concept…

2015 Book Review

I love to read. So much. I remember in second grade, challenging one of my friends to a reading competition – who could get through all 56 Nancy Drew Detective mysteries first. I have no idea who won. As I got older, I would secretly read by a nightlight in my room, long after I…

Happy Thanksgiving 2015!!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Apologies for the lack of posts lately. Travel combined with some bad jet lag and a cold have pretty much knocked me out at 5 or 6 pm every night this week. But I think I’ve finally caught up on my sleep and the cold is fading. Yay for normalcy! Anyway, to…

Goodbye 2014!

Today is the last day of work for 2014. My last run, last party and last blog post for the year. Last year at then end of the year, I wrote down all the things that had made 2013 better than not. This year I wrote them down as the year progressed, so I wouldn’t…
