2019: My Year In Review

2019 has been all about the next huge step of our lives. It's been about accepting the end of long-term travel adventures and embracing the new adventure of finding our forever home.

On Blog Awards (Plus I’ve Been Nominated!)

Over the past couple of years, I've been nominated for a handful of those circulating blogger awards (Liebster, Sunshine, and Versatile blogger, to name a few).

Why I DON’T Want To Be A Digital Nomad

Honestly guys, I'm getting kind of tired of seeing all these sponsored posts on Facebook telling you that "I quit my job and now I get paid to travel the world -Β learnΒ how YOU could do it too!" They make it sound so easy; like you could just quit tomorrow and be on a plane next… Continue reading Why I DON’T Want To Be A Digital Nomad
