Until I moved to Texas, I didn't understand that Dallas and Fort Worth were two different cities. Then, I started visiting my cousin who lives in Fort Worth. It's taken me about two years to actually distinguish between the two. I'm glad I finally understand it, though, because Fort Worth is actually a pretty cool … Continue reading Wandering close to home.

Studied French for 9 years. Finally get to Paris and everyone just wants to speak English.
Sometimes, inspiration is far from home.
I studied French for 9 years, from middle school through college. I'd considered studying abroad but I was too scared and I let the additional prices and fees be my excuse for staying stateside.

So, I decided on a starting point (the State Capitol) and went on from there. I ended up having lunch at this awesome saloon near the Capitol and then … Continue reading Exploring
I'm officially declaring 2014 my year of travel. Typically, I go on one vacation every year, and I realize that makes me pretty lucky. I've been to some pretty cool places with my family but this year is epic as far as travel goes. At least for me. I've already been to Colorado and … Continue reading Welcome to Texas, Y’all
