Summer in Florida 2017

Summer in Florida 2017

As I have gotten older and have tried to get used to this adulting thing, I have come to realize that summer vacations don’t come around as often as they used to. When this summer rolled around, I had already used up all of my […]

Long Distance Relationship Diary. Chapter 2: Only Fight For What Really Matters

Long Distance Relationship Diary. Chapter 2: Only Fight For What Really Matters

I am not a relationship expert, but I feel it is safe to say that couples in all kinds of relationships fight. If you ask me, couples that say they don’t fight at all are probably lying. Well, maybe they aren’t, but if you are […]

Canada 2017

Canada 2017

One of my goals is to travel as much as I can, especially to places I have never been before. This summer, I managed to cross another place off my list: Québec, Canada. Over July Fourth weekend, J and I took a trip to Québec […]

Grand Canyon 2017

Grand Canyon 2017

This March, I was invited to a beautiful wedding in Arizona. Since I don’t often get to visit the West Coast, and since I had never been to Arizona before (let alone the Grand Canyon), I took the opportunity to take time off work for […]

The Empire State Building at Midnight

The Empire State Building at Midnight

I must admit, being in a long distance relationship has been made a little bit easier by the facts that 1. both parties are on the East Coast, and 2. one of the parties lives in Manhattan. I had only been to the Empire State […]

St. John ♥ Summer 2016

St. John ♥ Summer 2016

Here it is: the long awaited, next-on-my-list-of-places-I’ve-never-been, adventure-filled, summer vacation to St. John! When I say this was long awaited, I mean that my boyfriend and I booked and planned this trip back in March, so naturally I just about exploded from excitement when we […]
