When your local post office is not local

It was like I was in that episode of Broad City where Abbi had to trek to North Brother Island to pick up a package. I, however, was at North City Annex, my local post office. This "local" post office is situated eight miles away from my residence. It's not even in the city of… Continue reading When your local post office is not local

72 hours in the Southwest — lots of driving and very worth it

I'm no stranger to long road trips. Or, lots of driving done in a short amount of time -- as was the case last weekend. Bryce and I had planned a few months ago to do a Southwest road trip. We would hit up White Sands National Monument Park, Roswell and Carlsbad Caverns National Park.… Continue reading 72 hours in the Southwest — lots of driving and very worth it

We book-ended the trip with stops in Hawaii before and after, which nicely split up the travel time from Seattle, and allowed us to visit family. New Zealand is AH-MA-ZING. We drove… Continue reading 2019 Travel Year in Review

When your life can’t keep up with your blog

Remember how I last wrote that I am the PM of my summer? I've done such a great job project managing my summer that I'm now having a hard time keeping up with my blog. When I travel, I jot down notes in a notebook (or, in the notes section of my phone) so that… Continue reading When your life can’t keep up with your blog
