If there is one place that I could pick-up and impulsively move to, it would be: Asheville, NC. Drew and I went there this weekend after our trip to Atlanta to see his cousin marry her beau in the sweetest ceremony/reception. It was lovely, but I realized that I did not take one picture in Atlanta. Not one. Part of that had to do with the fact that we stayed in Downtown which is sort of like Las Vegas (hear me out) in the sense that the only thing there is major chains and party-goers. Restaurant choices involved Hard Rock […]
First, this is not a sponsored post. I love AirBnB. And Homeaway. And whatever other vacation rental site I haven’t yet heard of or used. There is something exciting and thrilling to travel somewhere and stay in a cool neighborhood like a local, experiencing things that most tourists aren’t going to. And whenever I say that, I think about my college Anthropology class where the professor described the term “Going Native” a common experience for anthropologists who are studying cultures and getting lost in them. That’s exactly what I like to do when I travel, get lost in the local […]
At the end of April, we went to Mexico. The whole trip was planned around the union of Drew’s brother, Ben and his love (Now wife) Clau, in a lovely ceremony near her hometown in the mountains outside of Toluca. And it was spectacularly beautiful. We drove from Mexico City through windy roads watching farmers plow fields without the advanced technology we call tractors, and people outside their cinder-block homes playing with their children just to get to the site of the wedding.
I love living in the city. But I also love to celebrate nature, experience it, and be immersed in it. Especially this time of year when the fall colors are in their prime! Since Drew is from this area, he told me that one of the most beautiful places to see the fall colors is in Shenandoah National Park along Skyline Drive. So we had to check it out!
I love Drew. We are so lucky to have found each other at our ripe age of 20 something. The adventures we’ve had, the memories we’ve made, and the fur babies we’ve adopted, have all been life changing events (For the better); I can’t imagine a great life made any other way.
As I mentioned in a previous post, we did a lot of traveling in 2015. More than I think I have ever done in my life! It was a lot! Unfortunately, it’s difficult to follow a year like that. But I’m optimistic that we will make this one just as exciting and full of travel. (It will just be closer to home travel) Ashville, NC It seems like everyone is talking about Ashville, NC. Every blog I read, every Instagram post, everyone I talk to,
Last year, around this time, I read a blog post about traveling. In the post, the writer recommended that we should all work hard to travel at least once a month. This post came from a travel blogger, mind you, so when I was reading the post I thought to myself, “yeah, easy for you to say, you travel around the world for a living!”
I was talking to a friend the other day about the holiday season, specifically what we did for the new year in celebration of the clock striking 12 on the first day of a brand new number.
I can’t believe we are one day away from 2016! It seems like every year we always say the same thing about the previous year, that it went by so fast. And this one was no different. My mom recently had her second hip-replacement surgery which reminded me that I began this year at her home in Colorado, playing nurse (being really happy that’s not the career path I chose while admiring all those amazing nurses and just WOW; you all are angels, no really, you are.) By the end of last January, I felt like I had a solid direction for […]
I just wanted to take a moment and wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas! This year has FLOWN by and I can’t believe all of the incredible places we got to go, the things we got to do, and the people we were lucky enough to spend time with. It’s been a wonderful year! So again, Merry Christmas.
