April 2019 | Recap

on May 8, 2019

April was a thrilling and life changing month. From the streets of London to the fells of the Lake District, from chats over Thai food in Bristol with an old roommate, to new friends in the expansive valleys and mountains of Nepal. It was a wild month. Looking back I want to relive it again and again, but at the same time it’s made me so excited for future adventures to come. Read on to see what exactly I got up to in this month of travel! Continue reading

March 2019 | Recap

on April 3, 2019

What a transformational month March has been! Both in terms of the weather and my personal life… it’s seemed like one has mirrored the other. Read on to see what exactly I’m talking about! (Love a bit of a cliff hanger I do 😉 )

February 2019 | Recap

on March 4, 2019

February is the shortest month of the year but famously rough AF for a lot of us, including myself! Honestly this is when seasonal affective disorder really seems to hit home for me… in Michigan it’s my tipping point of snow-filled months with not enough time outdoors. Here’s how the month went for me… Continue reading

January 2019 | Recap

on January 28, 2019

Hey there friends. Somehow January has mostly passed. I don’t know why I’m always surprised when the end of a month arrives, time being, y’know, constant and all. But here we are again. That’s one reason I like these little monthly recaps. I get a chance to look back at the past 30 or so days and realize, oh wait, a lot actually happened! And it’s a nice way to catch up with all of you. Here’s what I was up to in January. Continue reading

December 2018 | Recap

on January 16, 2019

It feels weird to be doing my traditional monthly recap post whilst everywhere around me the internet is reflecting on the entirety of 2018. In truth, I haven’t taken much time to look back over the year as a whole. I’ve got my plane flight back home from NYC in a bit (I’m waiting in the airport as I write this), and I seem to do my best thinking at high altitudes. Maybe that will lead to some reflection. In the meantime, let’s take a little look back at 2018’s final month… Continue reading

October & November 2018 | Recap

on December 8, 2018

Thought I would smoosh my October and November monthly recaps together, because somehow October got away from me! By *somehow* I mean, I know exactly how. I had a life changing surgery at the beginning of October, and everything else kind of fell by the wayside. (Don’t worry, I’ll explain more below!). Looking back at these past two months, though, I can’t believe I’ve done as much as I have post-op! Here is a little recap for you all…  Continue reading

September 2018 | Recap

on October 1, 2018

Hey dudes! Can you believe September is gone? As this post is published, I am likely under general anaesthesia, away with the fairies in the hospital! I’ve had a rather last minute surgery scheduled to cap off a month of medical frustration (or maybe, to start a new month?). I chat a bit more about this in the ‘health’ section. But luckily, there were lots of fun things in September to complement my ongoing medical saga.

August 2018 | Recap

on August 29, 2018

August has flown by for me. I feel like I just got back from my trip to the UK and Portugal… but life goes on! I had one trip this month to Mackinac Island… a northern Michigan island I’ve been to four times and loved every time. I have also made some progress with my chronic health condition this month… both within the ‘alternative’ medicine sphere, and the very traditional Western medicine sphere.  Continue reading

July 2018 | Recap

on July 30, 2018

I’ve definitely been experiencing the post-travel blues since I returned from my big European trip. I think this is in large part because it was my first time back in the UK since I moved away, and because I miss Dan. However it was sweet to return home and reunite with my puppies and my family and the heat of Michigan summer! Here’s what I got up to in July! Continue reading

June 2018 | Recap

on July 4, 2018

It is hard to believe that June is done and dusted. In many ways lately I have felt like time is slipping through my fingers… I can’t believe I have been back in the USA for 7 months already. I still feel like I just moved here. But reality is that it’s been 7 months and it’s now time for me to start thinking ahead, planning my future, and working on my career goals. Before that happens, though, I have some travel coming up! (I mean obviously, this is me after all). Continue reading
