Mini-Much-Needed Vacation

Handsome and I went to the smokey mountains. We stayed in the city of Gatlinburg and mostly tried to venture on the mountains as much as possible. This was our hike on the Rainbow Falls. It was a…

I Smile More

Dear Handsome, Since I've met you. Since we've been together. Since we've been married. I've smiled more. It's because you're always in the background taking pictures so I can blog, so we can look…

Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree

I grew up adamant that my family get a real tree and that we open Christmas gifts on Christmas. I'm a traditionalist what can I say. Really it's just that I like to take Christmas to the max. I'm…


Sometimes You Have to Get Fancy

Halloween Costumes

Halloween Festivities

We were really in the Halloween spirit. So the next day after carving pumpkins we went to a corn maze. Once again we took Jess, mostly because she's awesome. Thankfully someone drew boobs on the…

The Story Behind This Clock

Here's the deal. That clock was my parents. And then I stole it. Okay well the truth is my parents are going through this odd "get rid of ALL THE THINGS" phase. So my house is quickly becoming…


Traveling

Studying Abroad as a Non-Traditional Student

Sometimes I have to remind myself that I am a non-traditional student. I'm very lucky with a lot of privilege despite being non-traditional. I have a partner who works a full-time job and tries to…


Hit the Ground Running

You might know that I've been out of the country for a while. It's been a relief being home. My snuggle intake has doubled. It's nice. However I've also been pretty stinking busy. I've made 3…

Handsome and I have done couchsurfing before and we really liked it. However a really good friend of ours told us about airbnb.com so we thought we'd give it a try. Because although I really love…


Going Down:

Handsome and I went a few feet underground. Which stinks because we wanted to do a little hiking while he was here and check out some of the country side. Buxton didn't like that idea and had the…
