October 2015: Back to Blogging

Portugal beaches.
October was the definition of “go big or go home”, and a reevaluation of pieces in my life. I started the month while still coming off a trip to Oregon and traveling around Portugal. When I got back, I unpacked and re-packed and three days later left for a long weekend in Chicago where I ran my heart out at the...

post-run-mimosa-brunch feature
August came and went…too fast. This month was all about trying to work hard and play hard and maintain the balance. J was going to be leaving for awhile for work and naturally we try to cram in everything we possibly can – both the non “fun” stuff like house work and the play time around San Diego. We don’t...

Holy crap it’s already AUGUST! This means we’re officially more than half way done with the year. I had a mini freakout with J (bless his soul for dealing with me sometimes) about how fast time is going and how much there still is to do before he has to leave for awhile. I have to remind myself that the...

June 2015 Recap

beach-day-san-diego
I went to look through my photos for this month and not a loooot happened. At least not “photo worthy.” I guess the reason why is because a ton of time was spent doing a million emails and phone calls and Pinteresting of wedding planning…which is would make for a ton of boring photos of lists and emails and texts....

8 Do’s and Don’ts of Volunteering Abroad

Temple in South East Asia
Ever heard of a “gap” year – a time that some people take sometime between high school and college years to go travel or perhaps volunteer? Or hear of those people who take a sabbatical or early retirement and do the same? About 8 years ago (oh my gosh… it was 8 years ago!) I traveled to Kenya by myself...
