S T I L L N E S S

Back in January I wrote a blog post about the tug and pull my soul feels to live a nomadic and adventure filled life. Back in January my options for the summer still included but were not limited to an internship in Colorado or a summer camp in North Carolina. These things were appealing because the last…

A D A P T A T I O N

A year ago today I  said “see ya later” to my best friend and former (soon to be again) roommate. As our sophomore year of college was ending our junior year would begin with adventures for the both of us. I spent the fall semester roaming the wilderness and Kendall is currently spending her spring semester…

T H I N G S G R E A T E R

Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about not being home. Probably because I haven’t been home in a while. I wouldn’t exactly call myself a nomad, but I’m decidedly not stationary either. From living at college, to working at summer camp, to wilderness wanderings, and northbound roadtrips I haven’t been home consistently for nearly 6…

The Midweek Adventure

I have this phrase on my wall next to my bed. It resonates with me in a figurative and literal sense (I can barely go outside without tripping over something and skinning my knees.) I don’t know about you, but I am definitely not the type of person who goes out a lot; people who…

Twelve Things No One Tells You About Leaving the South for the Summer

Spending my summer in the Midwest was a super fun and interesting experience (I’ve never seen so many cornfields in my whole life.)

First Road Trip of 2015 

This weekend my mom and I drove six hours up to Alabama to visit my aunt and uncle, cousin and her baby.        We got ourselves breakfast from Dunkin Donuts Saturday morning and had a grand time traipsing across Florida over into Alabama        Edit  We talked, took naps, jammed out to Tom Petty,…

Spring breakin’

Well, my spring break is swiftly coming to a close 😦 It has been a fantastic week of shopping, movie watching, reading, writing, beaching, book shopping, baked goods baking and eating, and friend catching up(ing?). I am not looking forward to this restful time ending. But I know I’ll push through because I can’t wait…

Adventure: Circle B Bar Reserve

Today my beautiful roommate and I ventured out into the rain and wind to do some exploring in the wilds of Lakeland We walked/hiked (whatever people want to call venturing in the woods in Florida) at a place called Circle B Bar Reserve. It’s a former cattle ranch turned state preserve- practically in the heart…
