  • Seattle [Things to Do]

    Seattle [Things to Do]

    A few weeks ago, my sister Katie came out to Seattle to visit. She finally met our cats (and saw Koda again), saw our new place, and had some major nostalgia— she lived in Ellensburg, WA about 7 years ago while she completed her Masters. On the day she flew in, we did a quick […]

    Happy Thanksgiving!  I have a confession to make… Thanksgiving is not my favorite holiday. Now, before you start saying “but what about all the food!?”, I have to also confess that turkey is not really my thing t either. I am a steak and potatoes kind of girl.

    Weekend Trip to Florida

    Phew! Last weekend was a whirlwind! The past couple weeks, I’ve been a bit homesick. I miss Florida, and most importantly, I miss my family and friends back home. It’s just not the same talking on the phone or texting. For my birthday, my parents decided to buy me a plane ticket home to see […]
