Downtown Tampa HAPPY THANKSGIVING guys! We spent the holiday traveling – a little non-traditional for us. We usually have the whole family together and then we have friends over to share the meal with. But this time, we went to Florida! We drove south through NC, SC, GA, and FL. We stopped in St. Augustine […]
I’m not a big plane-lover and have only been on a plane twice but since I’ve been itching to go farther, (and eventually internationally) I have to suck it up and do it anyways.

This park was so awesome though – we could’ve easily made an entire day of it. On the grounds there is a Japanese Garden, Italian Garden, butterfly garden, […]

My brother was just confirmed in the Catholic church so he was able to finally attend the annual trip the the National Shrine in Washington D.C.! When discussing who would go, it was decided that we would all go for the weekend! Day 1 We left Saturday morning and hit some traffic making us late […]
one of my favorite family trips ever – we got a lake house in Michigan with my mom’s side of the family. We had a photo-scavenger hunt, bonfires, kayaking, casino trips, and so much exploring!
As you know, I love love love endless exploration and finding new things in old places. Lately I’ve been much more appreciative of my surroundings and the beauty that’s around me every day. Probably because I’m looking for it now, where as before, I didn’t think it was there. I thought I had to get […]
