Voyages: Blue Ridge Parkway [@NorthCarolina]

What’s that? She hadn’t posted any Voyages since New York City in 2017, and now we have two in the span of 2 months? Has she quite lost her mind? Well, joke’s on you, dear reader. I never found my mind to begin with! I will admit that this is a bit of a cheatContinue reading “Voyages: Blue Ridge Parkway [@NorthCarolina]”

Voyages: Biltmore Estate [@NorthCarolina]

Over four years of living down here in North Carolina, and I finally made the trip out west to visit Biltmore. Of course, I am writing this post a few weeks later, from my current home built on Catawba and Sugaree land, about an estate that was built on Cherokee land, while thinking back toContinue reading “Voyages: Biltmore Estate [@NorthCarolina]”

Voyages: New York City [@NYNY]

Remember when my Voyages used to feature little-to-no words? Yeah, me neither. Work commitments recently packed me up and sent me off to the Big Apple for a week. New York City isn’t my favorite place on earth, but I knew that I’d have some time to kill so I wanted to make the bestContinue reading “Voyages: New York City [@NYNY]”

Voyages: The Emerald City [@SeattleWA]

Baby’s first trip out West! That’s right. Until this year, the furthest west I had ever been in my life was probably Pennsylvania. But my best friend (the one who went to New Orleans with me) recently moved out to Seattle to start her real life grown-up… life. And naturally I had to get outContinue reading “Voyages: The Emerald City [@SeattleWA]”

Voyages: Hickory & Blowing Rock [@NorthCarolina]

Last weekend I had a hankering to get away from the city. My usual preference would be to go to the ocean but that trip is more of a commitment down here so the second best choice was to get up into the mountains. Are you ready for the tale of another hysterical attempt atContinue reading “Voyages: Hickory & Blowing Rock [@NorthCarolina]”

Voyages: The French Quarter [@NewOrleansLA]

This was an adventure literally 5 years in the making. Since we met, my best friend Robin and I have been wanting to go down to New Orleans, Louisiana. Last weekend we finally made the jump and road tripped from my newfound home in North Carolina to spend a few days in the French Quarter. 10+ hours, each way. 700+ miles, each way. Too many mixed CDs to actually count, each way. And quite a lot of new experiences in between. Enjoy!

Real Moments: From Gardening to Glasgow to Graduation!

I’m well aware that there has been a lull in posts for the last few weeks – but that’s not for lack of things to say, trust me! An explanation by means of a life update felt in order. Apparently the letter ‘G’ has been the flavor of the past few weeks for me. What feltContinue reading “Real Moments: From Gardening to Glasgow to Graduation!”

Inch by Inch, Row by Row: Life Lessons from the Garden

Almost 2 months ago when I told my family I would be leaving to go work outside on an estate in Ireland for a little while, they were incredulous. To them, and friends, and many others, it didn’t fit their image of me. They couldn’t see why I felt a need to do this. But toContinue reading “Inch by Inch, Row by Row: Life Lessons from the Garden”
