Deciding to stay home — and being extremely happy about it!

It was a typical night in our household. We were scanning Google flights seeing where the cheapest flights to anywhere were in the coming months. This is what normal couples do on a Wednesday night, right? We were trying to decide where we wanted to go for the three-day weekend in November. One idea was… Continue reading Deciding to stay home — and being extremely happy about it!

A short and sweet hike

Sometimes it's hard to balance getting tasks checked off of your to-do list and doing "fun things." Fun things for Bryce and I on the weekends usually involve being outdoors. Last Sunday we decided to have the best of both worlds by waking up early and going on a short hike about an hour away… Continue reading A short and sweet hike

An impromptu Denali afternoon

I couldn't figure out why my husband's phone was telling us we were 15 minutes away from the visitor center. When we had entered the national park, we thought we'd be at our destination in a mere five to 10 minutes. "Are you sure you inputted the location correctly?" I asked him as he continued… Continue reading An impromptu Denali afternoon
