October is, as a rule, my favorite month of the year! The crisp leaves, the cooler weather, all the festivities and spookiness… and of course my birthday! After a very eventful past few weeks, this October didn’t disappoint!
Here we are not only at the end of September, but nearly halfway through October! Life, as you might assume, has been a bit full and wild. But I’m glad I’m squeezing this post in here, as I always enjoy the process of slowing down and looking at the month that was.
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…
Well, June is gone… we’re into summer at last, and I’m actually in one place for a bit! After the craziness of my 2.5 months of travel (to England, Nepal, and Maine – yes a somewhat random assortment of places, I know), I was so ready to just nest for a bit. That was my goal for June and I (kinda sorta) managed to stay put!
Looking back, it is hard to believe how many places I was and how much happened in May. I traveled a TON – early in the month I returned to the USA from my trip abroad to the UK and Nepal. But the travel continued stateside as I traveled throughout the USA. The highs were matched with a significant low: the passing of my beloved Grandfather. This was definitely a sobering month and I’m still absorbing everything that’s happened.
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!
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…
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.
