One of the reasons why I blog is simply to have the space to write: getting things “on paper” helps me to process my feelings and organize my thoughts. I also love having a record of my life over the past few years: a place that holds all of my stories, my photos, the ups and downs of travel. But sometimes, I also just want to remember and share the little things that brought me day-to-day joy.

A weekend in Cambridge

To be completely honest: although our time in Cambridge was the main reason for our trip overseas (a dear friend’s nuptials!), I didn’t have super high expectations of our time there beyond being very excited for the wedding festivities. As soon as we arrived, though, I was completely charmed by this university town on the River […]

Paris: on video!

We’re back home after a wonderful visit to Paris and Cambridge, and honestly, I am so thrilled to be reunited with Gertie! That said, I had so much fun playing tour guide in Paris: we went back to all of my favorite places, checked out a few touristy things that I hadn’t done since I was […]
