Johannesburg | South Africa 2019

Johannesburg | South Africa 2019

We only spent one full day in Johannesburg, but we jammed it full of activities. Animal-related activities. The centers and sanctuaries that we went to in Johannesburg play a large role in the protection and conservation of the animals they housed. While I still have…

Whenever I tell people that we chose South Africa for our honeymoon, I’m always asked, “why South Africa?” and “did both of you want to go to South Africa?” I never understood this. Why NOT South Africa?! J and I have lists of places we…

How Calendar Blocking Changed My Life

How Calendar Blocking Changed My Life

I was given my first planner in middle school. My school gave all students planners as a way to ensure that they were on top of their schedule, homework, tests, etc. This is what opened the floodgates for me because I still went out of…

Let’s Talk About POTS.

I was diagnosed with POTS in April 2019. For those of you who don’t know, POTS stands for Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (to be fair, I didn’t know that either until a couple of months ago). You can check out my favorite video that gives…

DC Cherry Blossoms 2019

I wrote another post about the cherry blossoms back in 2014, but even as a full-time DC resident, visiting the cherry blossoms year after year never gets old. Every time I see the cherry blossoms scattered around the monuments in The District feels like the…

Milos | Greece 2018

Milos | Greece 2018

Sadly, our adventures in Greece had to come to an end, but I have to say, there was no better way to conclude our journey around the Cyclades than with a few days in Milos. As far as sightseeing goes, we went to see the…

These are the pictures you’ve been waiting for, right? Here they are! This is beautiful Santorini in all its glory. Honestly, Santorini is everything you would expect it to be: beautiful views, clear water, white buildings with blue rooftops, etc. etc. But isn’t that also…
