From a young age, I had the itch to travel. I always wanted to get out of my small northern Michigan hometown and see more of the world. The world seemed like such a big place back then, and now I know it to be much smaller. During college, I was blessed with the opportunity to spend six weeks in Europe. I was forever changed but in a good way of course.

Someday I hope to see more of the world together with my family. For now, we're having fun discovering what's in our own neck of the woods. It's often easy to forget there are plenty of exciting adventures and things to explore right outside our own front doors.

I'd love to share some of my favorite places with you!

  1. I am so pleased to see you made it to Mississippi. Haha. Very few do. I know you had to have had a great reason to come!

  2. I love that you get to travel a lot! You've seen a lot of the U.S., but you must visit the great state of Ohio now :) Happy to have found your blog!!

  3. I am so jealous! My fiance and I travel about 2-3 times a year, but we like to go to all the "warm/hot" places with beach, sand, and ocean! I hope you enjoyed NC when you visited! It's a quaint little state lol
