Burgruine Flossenbürg

Burgruine Flossenbürg

Randy and I spent the first day of 2018 going on a short hike in a nearby town called Flossenbürg! I’d heard a lot about the town – mainly for its castle ruins and concentration camp. After about a 20 minute scenic drive, we arrived […]

Ski Trip 2017! & Christmas Shenanigans

Ski Trip 2017! & Christmas Shenanigans

If by ski trip, you mean that I did absolutely no skiing… Then the title of this post would be accurate. A group of us went down to a small (but GORGEOUS) town called Wagrain, about an hour south of Salzburg two weeks ago, and […]

Austria Round Two

Austria Round Two

For Randy’s birthday this year, we planned a short weekend trip to Austria! I’ve been wanting to go back since June, so I’m glad we finally had the chance. The PERFECT weather was the cherry on top of the sundae. One thing I will say […]

Climbing Fuji

Climbing Fuji

I am in the business of climbing mountains. Mostly, I blame my Japanese grandfather, who, at the ripe old age of 82 years old, still goes on regular multi-day treks to climb mountains. I grew up to him recounting story after story of his adventures […]

It’s Already July?!

It’s Already July?!

Time has been flying by pretty fast lately. The days and weeks are blending together and I woke up this past Saturday morning to realize that it was already July?! Where did the time go? Has it been three WHOLE months since I’ve moved to […]

I Am Officially a Dog Mom!

When Randy and I were still dating, we used to talk about how we were going to have two dogs: a german shepherd and a siberian husky – and their names were going to be Pork Chop and Sir Loin. Well… We are officially new […]

Excuses (And London…)

Excuses (And London…)

Sooooo in my last post, I had mentioned that I had a goal of writing five articles per week for the next month. That post was written on May 1. Today is May 24. Whoops. Life happens, right? Here are my list of excuses: I […]

I Want a Dog!

I Want a Dog!

It’s Monday May 1, 2017! Today was a significant day in many, many ways. Let’s start at 2AM in the morning, when Randy came home from work! Ugh.. so late, I know.. A couple hours later at around 11AM, I said goodbye to Randy for […]

A Weekend in Bled

A Weekend in Bled

Slovenia. So, if you’re like me, and have never really thought of travelling to Slovenia, think again. For the record, this is where Melania Trump (FLOTUS) is from. Slovenia surprised me. We were lucky to visit on a weekend with nearly perfect weather every day. […]
