While I’m Away . . .

I feel awful that this blog has had so many fits and starts over the years. I love exploring, photographing, and writing about new places – and I have so many plans for this space. But the truth is it’s hard for me to keep up with it when I also have a full-time job and […] Read more…

Infertility and IVF

As I mentioned in a previous post, Jeff and I struggled for over three years to get pregnant. When we were going through it, it took all of my physical and mental energy to try to keep moving forward and I could barely process what was happening. I never planned to write about it here, but […] Read more…

Florida Bound!

This week, Jeff and I are headed to Florida to visit with his family and celebrate our 5 year anniversary. Ever since his father and stepmom moved to Florida from San Diego last year, I started planning an ultimate Florida trip in my head. It involved a little Disney (Jeff has never been), some family […] Read more…

A short break

I just wanted make a little announcement that posting on the blog might be very light over the next month. I’ve signed up for a writing class which I am so excited about, but looks like is going to be a lot more work than I expected! I also wanted to say that I’ve added a […] Read more…

Goodbye 2014

Every year, for the past few years, I have vowed this is the year.

It started with a well

In some parts of the world, things we often take for granted, such as access to clean water or education, make a huge difference. Not only to an individual’s quality of life, but to an entire community’s ability to flourish. After Liberia’s civil war ended in 2003, a man named Edward returned to his home […] Read more…

Contributing to Google Field Trip

So after I wrote a post about the awesome Google Field Trip app, I emailed the developers on a whim and asked them if I could contribute. And to my surprise, they said yes! Basically, it will just be my posts republished through the app (it’s not a paid gig or anything) but I am […] Read more…

I’m 31 now

I turned 31 last week. I started to feel a little depressed when I thought about how quickly the year had gone by because I had hoped to change so much more in certain areas of my life that I’ve really been struggling with. But, it’s sort of like that Rolling Stones song. I am so […] Read more…

Summer Interlude

I haven’t been exploring much this week, so unfortunately I do not have a new place to write about. Instead, I thought I’d share some of the little things that are making me happy this summer. We’ve had fantastically hot, sunny days here the last two weeks and I’m grateful for it (I can say […] Read more…
