Travel

I live in Denver. My family lives in Ohio. My best friends live all over the country and I have a job that requires moderate travel. Needless to say, I rack up a LOT of frequent flier miles and hotel points.

Here you can find highlights from my personal and work travels.

…treasuring moments with faraway friends.

…wearing the crap out of my #findingwinter jacket. (Don’t make me give it back!!)

…devouring Into The Wild; unnerved by how much Alex Supertramp reminds me of my brother.

…snacking on Capt’n Crunch snacks (like Rice Crispy Snacks but with Capt’n Crunch).

…listening to Ratatat over and over.

…cheering friends who are starting new jobs.

…loving vacation time with my husband and friends.

Can life get any better?! I submit that it cannot!
