Travel: Vegas Baby!

Vegas has to be one of our favorite destinations, we literally travel there at least twice a year.  We love it so much we even consider it our second home and somewhere we could see ourselves settling at some point in time.  This time in particular though, I came for work.  Jon joined me on…

Travel: Essentials and Life Savers

I’ve found that being prepared and packing the right items makes all the difference between a good travel experience and one that is a little more hectic.  I have compiled a list of the essential items we bring with us when we travel that have been life savers. Packing smart is the beginning to any…

Travel: Highway 1 & Central California

We were debating what I wanted to do for my birthday / our anniversary (they are only a day apart) for a while.  Jon unfortunately did not have a lot of vacation time left so we were limited to the days we could take off and our anniversary and my birthday happened to fall on…

Travel: San Francisco here we come!

Travel: Planning for 2018

Forgive me for I know we are well into 2018, heck 2018 is almost over but it’s been a busy year.  For me writing is something that I love to do, it helps me feel creative.  However, one thing I have learned recently is that I have to be inspired about a subject to write…

Marriage: Navigating Through Work Trips

Being apart from your significant other, the person you see everyday and you fall asleep next to every night can be really tough. Simply, it is just not the same when they are not physically there with you. My Husband travels for work at least twice a year, often more and although it is usually…
