So this is 23. I am so thankful for 22! I started this blog, moved into my first apartment, landed my first internship, and got engaged!! Last year was filled with so many unique and different experiences. I remember spending my last birthday having dinner with my whole family and dancing with friends in bars… Continue reading 23 Things I Have Learned at 23 →

Last week was my first time going to Apple Hill! And if you were like me before I had gone, you’re envisioning one big hillside with apple trees and a pumpkin patch and vendors selling apple pies and caramel apples and apple donuts and all things APPLE. Close, but not quite… Apple Hill actually has… Continue reading Plan Your Perfect Trip to Apple Hill →
Lakes Basin Campground is an awesome campground in a great location. We stayed at site 15 and to my surprise, it was right next to a trailhead! Unfortunately I was planning on finding hikes in the area once we got to our destination only to find I had no service… So I had no idea… Continue reading Another Fishy Lake, A Not so Long Lake, and An Unexpected Waterfall →
Colin and I had planned on going to San Diego this year (cancelled twice). Evidently that just wasn’t in the cards for us so we planned a last minute camping trip before I had to go back to school (I’m already stressed). I knew it was important to stay close to home so after doing… Continue reading The End of Summer →

The beef is 100% grass fed from Bently Ranch. They also offer plant based, free range chicken, lamb, turkey, and salmon patties. The food is so… Continue reading Purrfect Burger →
I have been loving being outdoors. I know the pandemic has put a lot of things on hold and created obstacles and challenges for each of us. I wish I could take a vacation right now to Hawaii or Vegas or literally anywhere. But in a way I’ve been enjoying exploring my own backyard. I’ve… Continue reading Chasing Waterfalls →
Before the pandemic, I was working at We Olive and Wine Bar. I loved that job. It was the cutest hidden gem. That job taught me a lot. I learned so much about wine; the different kinds, the lingo, tasting terms, pairings, and most importantly that wine is best enjoyed with good company. Even on… Continue reading Cheers to Good Wine and Good Company →
I used to hike alone all the time. My days off never aligned with those of my family or friends so I had no other choice. Plus, I liked the freedom of being on my time and going at my pace and doing extra exploring if that’s what I wanted. Last summer I got away… Continue reading It’s Okay to Go Alone →
