Do You Believe in Magic?

Back in January, Dave and I spent a weekend at the Magical Disneyland… and I did not post anything of the adventure. However, I have a few photos and thoughts that I just need to share : ) I truly believe everyone should have a person in his or her world that just makes the…

Be Here Now: 2016

It’s time, it’s here, and it’s now. This is the time to do all those things you’ve promised yourself you would do “someday”. That someday is finally here, go and live! Make those plans you’ve been meaning to make, book that flight, take that trip, try that new food, tell that someone how you feel.…

Viva Las Vegas!

“Holiday RoooOOOooooad…” the classic song echoed as Dave and I belted it out late Thursday night. Paired with some ridiculous dance moves, we packed for our own little Holiday Road over to Las Vegas. Our friends from New York would be there for World’s Toughest Mudder so we figured why not go? We never miss…

Tough Mudder #3: Temecula, CA

When’s the last time you did something for the first time? Standing at the starting line for my third Tough Mudder, my adrenaline was racing as I listened to Sean give his pre-race speech. “When is the last time you did something for the first time? I challenge you to do something for the first…

Up, Up and Away

The older I get, the more I see and understand the importance of experiences over ‘things’. It’s nice to spoil a special someone sometimes, but frequently those things get thrown, used then forgotten about. So, when my special someone was turning 26 last week, I knew I wanted to plan a little adventure for us…

The Ends of the Earth.

Thursday, June 11th, Dave and I loaded up the little Jetta, bid our farewells to Seattle and headed down the Pacific Coast Highway toward San Diego. It was a trip most only dream about, yet here we were, driving the Pacific Coast. We woke up with the sun, because I of course, was as anxious…

Morning S’Mores.

Pat, pat, pat- I could hear the rain falling from the sky and hitting our tent ever so softy. Barely opening my eyes, I could feel the tangle of bodies, sleeping bags and packs that were covering the floor of the small tent. The gentle hum of Kathleen’s faint breathing kept beat with the rain…

The Life You Choose.

If someone would have told me – “When you’re twenty four, you will be spending a lovely Sunday afternoon, eating an authentic and fresh burrito at a Farmers Market in a small Southern California beach town with the most genuine and handsome of men” I would have probably laughed in your face. It is no…

Picture Perfect: The Grand Del Mar

“Please.” “No.” “…please..” “No.”  *** Waking up Saturday morning, the gorgeous sunshine peeking through the blinds and the warm weather seeping through the open windows, I was reminded why I love Southern California so much. It was only 7:30am and already a seemingly perfect day outside. Dave and I got up, chowed down some eggs…

Vancouver: Such Great Heights

When two separate “ships” merge and decide to form a relationship, there are plenty of things the new ‘ship’ must agree and compromise on. Of course, every ‘ship’ has it’s own thing that the two just can’t seem to see eye to eye on, for mine and Dave’s ship- it’s milk. We just cannot seem…
