    If we’re friends on Facebook you’ve seen that I’m planning a trip and looking for recommendations on an upcoming vacation to Reykjavik and Copenhagen.

  • Striving to be better in 2017


    I feel like a lot of people rank on New Year’s Resolutions. Must we hate on multiple people just trying to improve their lives and deciding to do so all at the same time? For me, every new year, I feel renewed and ready to change when the new year comes. Sure, it’s really hard to […]
