We met shortly after college, fell in love while dating long distance, then settled out Far East (Beijing, China to be exact.) Spontaneous adventurers, we were ready to take over the world. After getting over jet lag (we’re the worst with jet lag) we spent a year of teaching ESL at a high school in Beijing. We couldn’t have asked for a better first year of marriage filled with traveling, learning, and laughing. Two summers ago we made the six suitcase move back to the United States to begin our responsible adult lives. We are pursuing more education and then plan to move back overseas to learn, grow, and help people in whatever way we can.
But, for now, responsible adult life in the U.S.
I started this blog to document my colorful life with my best friend. It’s a blog filled with travels, memories, stories, and photography. I love to express what I’m thinking, feeling, and seeing, so I hope you enjoy.

Welcome! My husband and I are currently in the Washington, D.C. metro area of the USA, spending time taking on more education before we’re off on our next adventure. We spend every free moment enjoying each other’s company and pursuing our passions, but also love to relax, drink some coffee, and listen to people’s life stories.
Thanks for dropping by, and leave a comment or two so I know you were here!
