My Trip to Washington DC to see the Cherry Blossoms

Oh friends! This trip was a DREAM. Literally never wanted to wake up (although I also was exhausted by the end of this trip— so much so that I slept in my car for an hour at a rest stop 1.5 hours away from home). I really fell in love with DC. Low key trying to decide if I want to move there now. (semi-no joking.) Of course, this may all change when I visit NYC for the first time but for now… I really do think Washington DC is both the capitol city of our nation & my heart.

The 5 Best Coffee Shops in Des Moines, Iowa

Even before I moved to Des Moines in 2018, I knew Des Moines held some of the best coffee shops in the Midwest. I just didn’t know where they all were! But I wanted to find out. After all, cafes are the best places to get your morning caffeine fix, work on your laptop, read a book, or drop by with a visiting out-of-town friend. You’ll find below my top 5 coffee stops in Des Moines, as well as a few bonus cafes!

Traveling to Seattle on A Budget

Kicking off 2019 with a trip to Seattle was definitely a move in the right direction. Not only did one of my Instagram photos get the most likes ever, but I had a BLAST unplugging from work and normal life for a week! Seattle and the PNW has been on my bucket list to visit for about 10 years (!!!) and y’all bet your coffee addictions I’ll be back soon! There are so many incredible spots to visit, and next time I’ll be packing my REAL camera and some hiking gear to explore the PNW outdoors. (You can see more about our trip here.)

Visiting Seattle in January

I think a dream job for me would be “travel blogger.” Because who wouldn’t love to get paid to travel and share adventure stories!? Ok, probably not everyone…but since I grew up overseas and have been traveling literally since before birth, packing a bag and hopping on an airplane is literally ingrained in my soul!

Planning a weekend trip to Chicago

Planning a weekend trip to Chicago

Chicago happens to be the 3rd largest city in the United States. Did you know that?! I didn't.... until last year. even though I've been to the Windy City quite a few times in my life. The first time our family visited, I was 10 and obsessed with seeing the new American Girl Place. We visited the classic museums and the Navy Pier (of course!), and I'm sure rode the Loop and ate some deep-dish pizza along the way. However, not too much of that vacation stuck with me though the years.
