Sinéad’s Visit to Florida – Part 3 + Jack’s Visit!

This is the last part of my series on Sinéad’s visit and it makes me sad that it’s almost over — I’m glad I have so many pictures to remember it! 😀 Aside from eating at various new vegan places, visiting magical Harry Potter Land, drinking lots of coffee, baking cupcakes and “scooping lefts”, we also … Continue reading

Life Lately!

I take so many random daily pictures while doing regular things and I figure I’d start sharing some of my favorite ones here! The last couple of weeks have been a whirlwind as summer has started taking a routine that is a bit more relaxed than my school semesters have been. My days off are … Continue reading

Vacation Post: The Portland Experience

I’m moving backwards starting from the most recent on my giant list of make up posts, which should explain why this is just going up almost a full year after Nick and I’s trip to the West coast! I would say I’m ashamed, but it’s not for lack of trying – I’ve started this entry … Continue reading

Vacation Post: Shopping in Japantown

Sorry about the short hiatus! I started my summer term 5 weeks ago and between taking two 4+ month long classes condensed into the span of 5 short weeks, working 40+ hours a week and new puppies (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!), it’s been pretty chaotic around here and I’ve barely had a good night’s rest, not to mention the time it’d take for me to update!

Now that the semester is winding down, I realize I never posted the entirety of my trip photos from Nick & I’s vacation BACK IN APRIL! :O

In case you need a refresher…

Vacation Post: Life on Alcatraz Island

 One of the activities Nick and I had been most looking forward to on our trip was the visit to Alcatraz Island. We bought our tickets online months in advance from Alcatraz Cruises and gave a few morning hours to ourselves so that we could explore everything we wanted to while there. The ferry to the … Continue reading

Vacation Post: Touring San Francisco

Even though we arrived in California later than we planned, the rest of our trip went smoothly and we managed to visit and see everything we had hoped to during our vacation! One of my favorite days of the whole trip (and probably of life) would definitely have to be our second day in San … Continue reading

In Memory of Sean Hartter: 1973 – 2013

The internet is an amazing thing. Not only are you able to access an almost limitless database of knowledge and factoids, listen to music, watch television and stay up to date on current events, but on certain occasions, you may also be privy to meeting someone whom you wouldn’t otherwise meet, and having that person touch … Continue reading

Tonight, the foxes hunt the hounds.

I’ve decided that you can never really plan for anything in your life. Almost every single time I’ve tried to plan more than a few steps in advance has ended in absolute disaster in the last 6 months, so as of right now, I’m just kind of trying to take things as they come. We’ve finally … Continue reading

Recipe: Southwest Stuffed Mushrooms

While cleaning out an old album filled with pictures of food, I stumbled upon these few and my mouth began to water. I remember the first time I made these — My best friend and I were sharing a room in a crappy apartment with too many cats and I spent a lot of time … Continue reading

To break and to rebuild

I realized that I haven’t had much in the way of an actual update in awhile. I’ve mostly been trying to spend my time sorting through things I thought we had left behind, and trying to pick up the broken pieces of my life that were left when I moved up north last year. This … Continue reading
