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

Settle in, this post might get really long. I want to share with you the week my family and I spent in Cuba this year. Also, I tried something a little different with my photos, so they posted not as HIGH of a resolution as I’d have liked, but you can see some more in

Last year for my birthday, I went to Portland & Seattle. This year’s trip was Chicago. It was my first time there and I just loved the city. The weekend was predicted to have terrible weather, but everyday when we awoke, the skies just cleared right up. We left the airport in DC after work

We went to mexico! My boyfriend’s present to me was a surprise trip to Mexico with his roomates. It was so much fun. I have visited the country before on a mission trip, but never been to a coastal beach. We left the freezing cold December weather for some sun. Crazy story, my friend Melissa
