Starting August in Italy was phenomenal… If you’ve been following my blog at all, you’ve hopefully noticed the pictures and videos from our trip. When we planned the trip, we were a bit reluctant about the location since we had spent time in Italy before. Luckily the Italian coast was an entirely different experience than Florence, Venice, Milan and Rome offered. But with that hesitation … Continue reading Lucerne, Switzerland
One of the best things about traveling (in addition to seeing new parts of the world) is getting to meet new people along the way. On our trip to Italy we were meeting up with friends and friends of friends – which meant, new relationships and connections were bound to be formed! After a fun filled day of exploring the local beach, taking a water … Continue reading Wake up and go the extra 7,000 steps…
One of my favorite quotes is “Once you’ve climbed to the top of the mountain, you only then realize there are higher mountains to climb” – or something similar to that. And some people have told me that they think its depressing and a “balloon popping” statement – but I find it to be very motivating and inspiring. We all have obstacles or experiences in … Continue reading There is so much of the World to see…
One of the joys of working from home, is often changing where “home” is. Anyone who has been following my blog or social media posts have probably realized that I don’t like to sit still for long – and changing up my workplace is a reoccurring theme.

It’s hard to find time to be adventurous and take time to disconnect – but it’s not impossible with strategic planning and sticking to tight schedules. In … Continue reading Appreciating Earth – Today and Everyday (especially on Earth Day)
Another weekend has come and gone – and shockingly enough, I was out of town for another event… But as I always try to tell my staff and those I care about, you always have to find time for yourself – and on this 48 hour trip in and out of Phoenix I did just that! Flying into Sky-harbor International Airport (a trip that is … Continue reading Valley of the Sun – and Street Art!
I started my college career at North Carolina State University (Go Pack). One of my favorite things about the campus was a small tunnel connecting the residence halls to the classroom buildings called the “Free Expression Tunnel.” This tunnel was NC State’s solution to graffiti. They designated a set location where spray painting was allowed (think of it like a smoking zone – but instead … Continue reading I love Street Art & Free Expression
Yosemite National Park is one of the great American treasures everyone needs to experience! Geographically, Yosemite Valley was made sense to kick-start our road trip and adventuring – and it set the bar very high for the rest of the week! Knowing that there is so much to do in the (freaking huge) park I wanted to make sure we got the most of our … Continue reading Yosemite: Day 1
I love to travel (shocker). This love came from my grandfather, who would would take me and my brother on road trips growing up. We would pack up our backpacks for overnights at his house or venture up to Prescott, work his food truck in East Phoenix or even trek cross country to meet family members we had never met before. He was a modern … Continue reading Hit the Road: Adventure Awaits!
