New York Winter Adventure

New York City and Christmastime – two of my favorite things. Earlier this month, we got to experience the two together. And even though Matt and I have been to New York before, there were so many opportunities for new experiences this time around.  Continue reading



A couple of weeks ago, Matt and I went on a spontaneous trip to Seattle! A friend of ours is staying there for a while for work and it’s been at the top of our list of places to travel so we figured now was the perfect time. We had the best time and absolutely fell in love with the city!  Continue reading

New York City

In September 2016, Matt and I traveled to New York City! New York is one of my absolute favorite places to travel, because there is no shortage of things to do and see.

I’m excited to see the city in a completely different season, especially since it’s going to be all decorated for Christmas when we go. Continue reading

Caddo Lake

It makes for a very unique lake experience. Continue reading

Zion National Park

But we’re all settled in now and I absolutely love our new house! My commute to work went from 1.5 hours to 15 minutes, and same for Matt. I have so much more free time now to explore the local parks and restaurants! There’s two huge parks within walking/biking distance of my house… perhaps one day soon I’ll do a post about Houston parks! Continue reading
