  • Life Lately: Settling into My New Life in Oregon

    Life Lately: Settling into My New Life in Oregon

    I’ll start this off by giving you a short summary of the last few years: This time four years ago, I was living in China. Three years ago, I was living in a lonely apartment in DC and in a long distance relationship. Two years ago, I was a new Canadian resident, living in a […]

  • Heading West | Visiting Roswell, Carlsbad Caverns and My New Home

    Heading West | Visiting Roswell, Carlsbad Caverns and My New Home

    Just like that, My Great American Road Trip is headed back west. If you read my post when I started traveling back east, you’re probably very confused — honestly, so am I. Over the course of 4.5 months, I crossed the entire United States from coast-to-coast THREE times. It’s a really long and complicated story, […]

    Heading East | Snow in September, Dinosaurs and John Mayer’s House

    My Great American Road Trip is heading east! In a little less than a week’s time, I made it from Oregon, to Washington, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, South Dakota, Iowa, to Missouri where I’ll be for a week! It was a crazy few days. I saw snow in September, a man walking a dinosaur, and drove […]

    Life Lately: Heart Update & Life on the Road

    Although I’ve been posting lots of travel photos showing my life on the road, it’s been some time since my last “life lately.” In short: Life has been pretty grand lately. But, here’s what I’ve been up to, where my heart has been, and what’s next for me. 😊 I went to Nashville for a […]

  • Washington | Exploring Downtown Seattle and Mount Rainier

    Washington | Exploring Downtown Seattle and Mount Rainier

    There’s something special about Seattle, and I can’t quite place it. I just love the feel of the city, the gloomy skies, the UFOs everywhere. Seattle is just different—and I like that. My recent trip to Washington was great! I spent my time exploring Downtown Seattle, camping in the woods, and meeting family I’d never […]

  • Oregon (Part 4) | Exploring Bend & Crater Lake After the Wildfires

    Oregon (Part 4) | Exploring Bend & Crater Lake After the Wildfires

    I first went to Eastern Oregon four years ago to visit friends, so going back this time around was great! I was reminded what a beautiful little city it is, and I was so happy to be spending time in the wilderness. For the week I was there, I spent time exploring Bend and Crater […]

  • Oregon (Part 3) | Staying on the Oregon Coast and Sand Dunes

    Oregon (Part 3) | Staying on the Oregon Coast and Sand Dunes

    When I was going to college, one thing my roommates would look forward to was the weekend. Not because of the parties or sleeping in, but because sometimes we’d visit the Oregon Coast and Sand Dunes! I loved that two-hour road trip with my best friends, it was so special. So when I visited again […]

  • Oregon (Part 2) | Visiting my College Town in Eugene

    Oregon (Part 2) | Visiting my College Town in Eugene

    I graduated from the University of Oregon close to five years ago now (yikes), and visiting my college town in Eugene was so surreal. When I graduated, I didn’t think I’d be back. Don’t get me wrong, it was amazing and I have nothing but love for the school and the place, I just thought that […]

  • Oregon (Part 1) | Eastern Oregon & Mt. Hood in the Summer

    Oregon (Part 1) | Eastern Oregon & Mt. Hood in the Summer

    If you follow me on my Twitter or Instagram, you know I’ve been in Oregon since July. JULY. I’ve been sitting on this Oregon content for a while because at first, I wasn’t quite sure how to put it all together. So, I’ll be rolling it out in parts (four, to be exact!). As soon […]

  • Do you believe in miracles?

    Do you believe in miracles?

    I haven’t always been the type of person to believe in miracles. But as of late, I am. When I was in the Wyoming desert, I got a phone call I wasn’t expecting. And from this day forward, Wyoming will forever be known to me as the place where I experienced heartache, grief, and a […]
