I suggest you grab your own hot beverage of choice, and join me for a chat (well, I’ll write, you read). Continue reading

11 Cheddar Gorge Walks You Need to Try on Your Next Visit

on October 22, 2019

Dan and I recently took a road trip through Somerset, where we stationed ourselves in Cheddar Gorge for a few days, and tried all the Cheddar Gorge walks we could.

August 2019 | Recap

on September 6, 2019

Before summer has completely left the air, before everyone’s out here crunching leaves and downing pumpkin spice lattes… I thought I would share my August recap 🙂 For me, August was a month of polar opposites. I jetted off on a great trip to the pacific northwest, before coming home to bury myself in the library. Here’s everything I got up to in August… Continue reading
