In less than two weeks I’ll be boarding a plane to Glasgow to start a 16-day journey through Scotland and England. My boyfriend, Tom, and I were supposed to go over winter break, but some health complications kept us in the states for the holidays. While we were certainly bummed to push off our trip,… Continue reading How I Deal With Pre-Vacation Jitters
Traveling can be a headache, especially when you travel with one.
Before every trip, I often find myself daydreaming about how it's going to pan out. The trips of my imagination are filled with laughter, crystal clear photography, and memories my boyfriend and I will cherish for the rest of our lives. This time, though, we began our journey and things started taking a turn for… Continue reading Getting a Second Chance

I know to some, 1000 people may not seem like a big deal. To me, this is everything. I love to write and travel, but when I know people are reading the material I put out there, it gives me that extra push. Blogging can be tough. You start out as a nobody with only… Continue reading My First Milestone
