Reminiscing About Jbel Toubkal

Reminiscing About Jbel Toubkal

It’s Sunday morning, and I’m sitting at my desk with an iced coffee and my laptop. I’m in the suburbs of Philly. I should probably start studying chemistry in the next few minutes. Life has changed directions quite a bit lately, but I’m spending a […]

2018

2018

I’ll be the first to admit that I have NEVER EVER EVER stuck with a new year’s resolution. I used to love the idea of writing a list of things that I would commit to every year. I used to think “this was the year” […]

Thanksgiving in Budapest

Thanksgiving in Budapest

Lately, the posts I’ve been meaning to write have been backing up like crazy. We went to Karlsbad, Czechia in August, Ireland and Scotland in September, Budapest, Hungary for Thanksgiving, and most recently, a ski trip to Wagrain, Austria. All of which I have yet […]

I Am Officially a Dog Mom!

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 […]
