This may sound a little overdramatic… Almost 3 years ago now I was lying in a hospital room in the ER after a bad car accident. My dad hadn’t gotten there yet. I was lying on my back, neck brace and all, staring up at the ceiling. I think at this point they’d given me … More Ireland
Amidst all of the craziness going on right now, this came in the mail. It was such a bright light on a stressful couple of days. It still doesn’t feel totally real that I’ll be in France this time next month, even after getting the official documents here in the mail but I’m getting more … More Positivity Project – Day 14

That being said, I do like to set up a goal or two…something to focus on…when a new year rolls around. For 2015 I put my focus on acceptance. Accepting the various challenges in my life.

I recently came back from an 18 day trip abroad in Europe. I did 6 countries in 15 days with a few extra days in Vienna, Austria at the end.

It’s no secret that 2014 hasn’t been the best year in my life for a variety of reasons. I think it’s been made even tougher by the fact that 2013 was such an amazing and incredible year, especially around this time. I went from going to Seattle for the first time to a trip all … More Travel Withdrawls
I was sitting at my desk last night…a night that just happened to be my birthday. I’d just gotten back from my dream trip and I remembered that I shared my birthday with my Papa, the main reason for my trip to Ireland in the first place. I wasn’t in Ireland anymore, but my mind … More Memories of Ireland
