    Our Galtinburg & Knoxville Vacation

    Back in August, we traveled to Gatlinburg for our first vacation together in over two years, and I’m just now getting around to sharing the details. I know, I know, way behind. Our schedules have been crazy ever since we got back and I haven’t been balancing it very well (obviously). I had intended on sharing this blog post shortly after we returned, but honestly time just got away from me. In total, our vacation was five days, spending three days in the Smoky Mountains, hiking and exploring Gatlinburg, and another two days in Knoxville eating good food and enjoying the up and coming city. This was our first time visiting…

    A Girls Weekend in Duluth

    I recently had a girls weekend in Duluth and we had a blast! Duluth is a perfect city for a weekend getaway or even for a day trip. The last time I traveled to Duluth, I went solo to see a power lifting meet, and that was two summers ago. I’ve also been up there for Grandma’s Marathon, which is an experience in itself.

After we arrived, we were all hungry so we grabbed an early lunch at Grandma’s Restaurant,…

    My 2018 Goals

    Another year has come and gone, so here I am with my 2018 goals.

It’s also a nice way to have a journal-esque log of what I’ve wanted to do over the years and watch myself grow and change. 2017 has been an experience. I’ve gone through challenging times before, but this past year has come with the most changes, challenges, and growth. I won’t go too into my grievances as I’d much rather focus on the positives…

    A Weekend In Detroit

    So I spent a weekend in Detroit a few weeks ago and I know what you’re thinking, “But why Detroit?” I know because that’s what everyone around me said when I said I was taking some vacation time. But that was the most fun that I’ve had in a really long time, and I honestly recommend checking it out for a weekend getaway. One of my cousins has been living in Detroit for a couple of years now and always wants family to visit! So finally me and my other cousin who lives in Chicago organized a cousins weekend in Detroit. I flew out on a Friday morning and my cousin…
