All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven

Fair Warning: Get the tissues ready. I'm a naturally huge crier by nature so maybe you'll hold it together better than I did by the end of this book but I was a full 10 pages of tears. The book was funny, sad, and informational, wrapped in a bittersweet truth. All The Bright Places is... Continue Reading →

What I Learned Freelance Writing

Let me tell you a story. It's been six months since I walked across the graduation stage. That day I was panicked, nervous, and moving to Texas.

A Few Of My Favorite Things

One of my favorite places was a place we tried so hard to find. I ran down streets like a mad woman trying to find the little Shakespeare and Company bookshop. We asked store clerks and traveled down lots of streets. Without my friends I don't think I actually would have gotten there. Shakespeare and... Continue Reading →

Food of France

Some may talk about streets and sights but today is a day of food. I'm jamming in food from Paris, Nice and Arles all into one large story-through-food post. I ate Mexican, Japanese, American and all the in between but unfortunately I didn't take pictures of them all. What I do have is just a... Continue Reading →

Traveling Hurts

Yup. Those cankles are mine. Those two feet hoofed the physique of a couch potato over 10 miles a day for days on end.
