Goals 2018 | offthebeatenpress.com

Setting goals is hard for me. I kinda just like going with the flow and seeing where things land. This year though, I decided to make some concrete goals though so I could see what happens at the end of 2018. I normally pick a “word of the year” to stick to instead of resolutions, and I

Travel: Ireland 2017 | offthebeatenpress.com

After visiting both Iceland and England, we headed to Ireland! The very first night we got there we met up with some friends from Richmond who had moved there. I was so excited to see them again! It’s always nice to have friends in other countries and reuniting again was really special. We had dinner to

Travel: England 2017 | offthebeatenpress.com

The next spot on our trip after Iceland was London, England! I hadn’t been back to London since 2009 when I lead a trip of high school students there. The last time I went we stayed in a dodgy part of the city and had a long commute in to see anything of interest. This time, we

Travel: Iceland 2017 | offthebeatenpress.com

I went to Iceland last year and loved it so much, I had to go back. Iceland Air had a great deal, when you fly to Europe, you can stop-over in Iceland for up to a week for free! I 100% took advantage of the deal to explore this beautiful country again. This time, however,

An incredibly nerdy post for sure, but I just couldn’t help myself. Last night, my friend Kaitlyn and I went to the Game of Thrones Pop Up Bar in DC. I had to pick up my boyfriend from the train at 11 pm so it worked out that I was going to be in the

Thank goodness for my full-time job! Since my small business is my side gig, I don’t frequently get to say those words, but this past weekend, I was so so thankful for my job. We have an office in Charleston and when I realized the city was going to be in full totality of the

the fourth in NYC | offthebeatenpress.com

My boyfriend has landed in NYC. He will be getting his full-time residence there later this year, but for now, he is stationed in temporary housing. For the week of the Fourth of July, I went to visit him and spend some time hanging in the city. I worked from home every day that week

My second frame weaving | offthebeatenpress.com

In January, I took a frame weaving class and I am kinda obsessed. The process of weaving is so theraputic. I am giving the last one I made away to my little brother and his girlfriend, so to replace it I created this one. I am still getting used to making them and started this

Frame Weaving | offthebeatenpress.com

Over the past four weeks, I took a frame weaving class at the Visual Art Center. I wanted to take this for so long but haven’t been able to find a suitable time, but this winter, I made it work. I planned four weekends in a row in Richmond, something I never do, just to

food in iceland | offthebeatenpress.com

Some people care a lot about what I ate in Iceland, other’s not so much. So I split apart blog posts from my Iceland trip so those that were interested in food could easily just access that information. To see photos from my trip, check out my week in Iceland! The first thing you have
