Seattle + Bainbridge Island Recap

Summer of ’19 Memories

Happy Labor Day, y'all! While I'm usually sad to see this day come as it typically symbolizes the end of long summer days, this year, I'm eager for the season ahead.

There are trees on every corner, twinkling lights all around and the most beautiful Christmas displays in shop windows. It's such a magical time! Since my sister lives there, we usually visit New York … Continue reading Christmas in New York

Just about as quickly as our trip to Peru approached, it just as quickly passed by. Before we knew it, we were in the last city of our adventure -- Cusco.
