Things change. I know, I know–let the eye rolling begin. However, I am only mentioning this because for my 30th birthday I received the book 1000 Places to See Before You Die. In the USA chapters, it lists International Falls, MN as one of these places. I have been dropping hints to April left, right, … Continue reading International Falls
You always travel with your passport, right? Of course, I keep it with me all the time–because you never know when you might have to leave the country quickly. I thought so, but I wanted to double check…and well, remind you to bring your passport. Like for Birthday Trip #1, my only requests for Birthday … Continue reading Have Passport, Will Roadtrip.
In trying to find pictures for Throwback Thursday, I realized I have a lot of pictures of adult beverages (that is said with pride, by the way). As such, I’ve decided that rather than share pictures of me with bad 80s hair and glasses that legitimately covered half my face, I could easily share glasses … Continue reading Thirsty Thursday #12

The Texas Declaration was written in less than a day during (although not at) the battle of The Alamo, drew a lot of influence from the … Continue reading Happy Birthday Texas!

Yesterday started my birthday week. By that, I don’t mean it’s the week of my birthday, but rather: starting yesterday, I have at least one birthday a day until the end of the month (and yes, I know it’s technically 8 days, but channel your inner Beatles and work with me here people!). The only … Continue reading Birthdays Galore!
