Every year I say I am going to dedicate more time to blogging and every year I struggle. 2017 was no exception. Last year I struggled with sharing too much and not sharing enough to create beneficial content. I'm awful at taking pictures, becoming increasingly impatient when a great shot doesn't come out on the… Continue reading MY TOP FIVE PLACES OF 2017.
Spanish Moss trees, Southern Mansions, and a history that dates back to 1773 are just a few of the reasons that Savannah, Georgia has been on the top of my must see cities for as long as I can remember. With just a few short days and a jammed packed agenda, I worried my best… Continue reading Southern Charm in Savannah, GA
I’ve been MIA on this blog all year. This year, while not yet over, has been a really big growth year for me. I moved out of my parent’s house for the first time and moved in with my boyfriend. I dedicated my time to making our place a home, spending quality time together, and… Continue reading #30by30
As I unpack my bag from my three week trip, and repack my bag for my first trip of 2017, I cannot help but reflect on the awesome adventures that I embarked on this year. The best part of these adventures was that most of them were not planned until the last minute, just the way… Continue reading My Top Five Places of 2016.
When I first arrived in Dublin, exhausted and super jet lagged, I was less than impressed. It was more modern than I had anticipated and I made the dreadful mistake of stopping by the Guinness Storehouse first. It was a museum (not a factory) and it was so crowded! With that being said, the beer… Continue reading How I Spent 24 Hours in Dublin.

Feeling completely uninspired at the time, I checked my calendar, and booked a trip. I told very few people that I would be… Continue reading Why I did Iceland all Wrong (& How A Solo Trip Helped Me Recharge).
Recently, I was telling someone how I thought me traveling alone was brave. While I didn’t expect a “congratulations,” or a “you’re so brave,” their reaction really took me by surprise. They looked at me, dead serious, and said “That’s not brave.” Wow. Ouch. Of course, that comment got me thinking. Bravery, to me, means… Continue reading What Brave Means to Me.
As I close my 2015 year of travels with a trip to Aberdeen, South Dakota, I could not help but think about the amazing adventures I have been fortunate enough to embark on. I started the year with my favorite RunDisney event, Marathon weekend, and am ending it with some much needed quality time in Connecticut.… Continue reading My Top Five Places of 2015.
In the words of my father, “Is that going to be enough for two weeks?” The honest answer is probably not, but no one ever died from wearing the same outfit twice, and I am sure if I looked hard enough I could find someone who died from carrying luggage that was way too heavy.… Continue reading Secrets to Packing Incredibly Light.
There is nothing I love more than exploring. Nothing. Actually … maybe playing with my dog, but I can honestly say that would be the only thing more fun to me than exploring a new city, meeting new people, and eating awesome food. If every store and hotel were pet friendly I would be living… Continue reading The Not So Funny Truth.
