20 Photos to Inspire your next Road Trip

I don’t think it’s a secret how fond I am of road trips. There’s something about the wide-open road (maybe it’s because I grew up in the country as opposed to the city, who knows) that leaves me feeling peaceful and relaxed. I can do solo trips, like the time I slept in my car…

5 Fun Things in Northern Cali

Wow, can you believe 5 years ago I wrote this blog post:  5 Fun Things in Southern California. And while San Francisco has been on my city bucket list for a while now, that last blog inspired the layout for this one. Part of my 2019 resolution is to travel every month, so the weekend…

Vegas Is Not All Drinking

I recently graduated from college (I know, hard to believe right) and my parents took me to Vegas, Nevada to celebrate! We went with close family friends and stayed from Dec. 16th to early in the morning the 20th. And since we live in a state where casinos are illegal (thanks, Nebraska) we made sure…
