I’ve been talking about starting a blog for years, and I’ve finally decided to give it a go. This is my place where I can document bits and pieces of my life. I don’t want to be just another person you follow on the Internet, so I hope this allows you to get to know me a little better. I welcome feedback, so please let me know what you think — I’d love to hear from you. Thanks for reading and supporting me on this new adventure!

  1. I wish I knew how to ______.
    Trust more — that everything will work out like it’s supposed to. Oh, and ski.

    One of my favorite lyrics right now is, “You make your plans and you hear God laughing.” I’m still learning this one.

    Christmas, hands down. I love everything about the Christmas season.
  12. #1 vacation destination?
