Hey Reader! It’s the last day of February (my least favorite month), and I’m celebrating by getting ready to welcome Spring.

New year, new adventures. Let’s explore more together! 🎉

Hey Reader! Here we are. A new year and it’s time for new adventures! Are you ready to explore more this year?

Planning downtime when you come home from a trip helps with these two things! 🙌

Hey Reader! I hope you’re having a wonderful day! I’m back in Utah, getting settled and figuring out wtf this new season of life is going to look like.

How making flexible travel plans saved me a bundle and can do the same for you! 💰

Hey Reader! Happy Travel Tuesday! How is October over already?! I’m wrapping up my time in Toronto and savoring these last days. What’s something awesome that happened to you in October?

Hey Reader! Happy Travel Tuesday from cool and rainy Toronto! On days like this, I just want to cozy up with a good novel, a sweet treat from my new favorite patisserie, and a steaming mug of tea.

Hey Reader! Happy Travel Tuesday! I’m headed back to Utah this week to spend time with my love before going to Canada and am looking forward to some much needed downtime.
