Road Trip Maine—Escaping the Blizzard

I’m a little late in the game to be posting this, but it’s been a hectic week (when isn’t it??). Last week, record breaking Winter Storm Jonas hit the east coast in a frigid fury. Katie and I had just finished booking a spontaneous long weekend trip to North Carolina 3 days before, thanks to … Continue reading Road Trip Maine—Escaping the Blizzard

Road Trip Southwest—Adobe Ruins & Santa Fe Turquoise

The next morning we started to see snow-covered mountains as soon as we hit the road. It gave the drive a completely new landscape that was nothing like my first trek through New Mexico years ago. We went north and then veered east on Route 60 just after La Joya, towards a ghost town/adobe ruin … Continue reading Road Trip Southwest—Adobe Ruins & Santa Fe Turquoise

Road Trip Southwest—New Mexico Ghost Towns & Open Road

The next morning, we woke up to our first morning frost. It was caked onto the hood of the car so deeply that my brother was able to carve his name in it.

Since there were no blizzards on the … Continue reading Road Trip Southwest – Bisbee Breakfast & Mountains of my Dreams

Road Trip Southwest -Tucson Hiking and Catalina Sunsets

After having a few too many glasses of bubbly-ness on New Year’s Eve, we did the only logical thing we could think to do – hike in the desert. I only had 2 nights in Tucson on this trip so I wanted to see the mountainside up close as soon as I could. After powering … Continue reading Road Trip Southwest -Tucson Hiking and Catalina Sunsets

Road Trip Southwest – a Tucson, AZ New Year’s Eve

I have been on a blogging hiatus for longer than I am proud of (a good month and a half). This holiday season was exponentially more hectic than usual, as it was my first holiday season while attending graduate school. Juggling 30-page final papers while trying to frantically find broke-girl-approved Christmas deals in NYC a … Continue reading Road Trip Southwest – a Tucson, AZ New Year’s Eve
