White Mountains, NH

I had no big travel plans this semester as I settled into life as a MBA student, but thought I should put a blogpost together for our quick trip to the White Mountains over Fall Break last month, as well as give a little update for the last post of this decade! I can’t even…

Lake Placid/Upstate New York

And with that, 2018 is over. This was quite a momentous year, although it didn’t compare with the craziness of 2017. Select highlights: M and I officially got married in August, and then had our wedding celebration in October, and the second half of the year was focused on applying to business school. In December…

Paris, France (2018)

At the beginning of the year, we once again planned on not traveling so much this year, since we have a ~wedding~ to save for later this fall! But, as always, the best laid plans often go awry, and when the opportunity came to spend some time in Europe this summer, of course we jumped…

Oahu, Hawaii

We hadn’t been planning on taking any other trips besides our summer Eurotrip this year before our wedding, but the opportunity came up to visit Hawaii for essentially free so we jumped on it. We’d always said we wouldn’t visit Hawaii except for friends’ weddings since it’s a really long trip for a destination that…

turning a quarter century

I turned 25 recently. Depending on where you’re reading this from, that’s either really young, or that’s the age when you should already have multiple kids and a house. These days I’m surrounded by urban, highly-educated, non-religious colleagues & friends, so I think it’s still generally considered quite young. Most 25-year-olds in my circles are…

August 2017

Last year I wrote an “autumnal reflection” in August, as it was the beginning of another “year” but with very minimal changes. I smile a bit when I read that post, because I referenced August 2017 as if it were so far away at the time. I suppose it did feel like that, back then….

Boston Bucket-List

We’ve finally moved to Boston (more on that here). New York City felt infinite and endless – there was almost too much going on at all times. Just when we got the hang of the city though, it was time to move on. Perhaps we’ll be back again some day, perhaps not – the next time we’ll…

February 2017

I’ve decided to do a snapshot of February plans – no big trips this month (just long weekends in Boston and Chicago), but an incredibly fun few weeks regardless. Unfortunately, none of those weeks were as devoted to classwork and writing that thesis as I wanted to; I suppose it will get real in crunch…

A Few October Updates (2016)

With the blink of an eye, October has come and past – and no travel posts from me?! That’s because this month was the start of my “real life” – a new job, and the beginning of being a real-full time student as my thesis was recently accepted (woot). And don’t worry, there was LOTS…
