Hello Airport, My Old Friend

It’s time for a travel post!

This weekend we are taking off to Albuquerque, New Mexico! Our weekend destination was decided at 4pm today, so I don’t really know what to expect of this trip.

My husband, Justin, works for an airline, so we typically travel 2 weekends a month. When we travel we fly stand-by, so it is always an adventure when we decide to explore a new city for the weekend!

We have spent many hours sitting in airports, sprinting to gates, getting our bags pulled in security (always his!), and getting bumped off of flights!

However, I am writing this on the plane – today we made it! I guess I better book a hotel…

There are tons of fun things about flying stand-by. One thing that is not fun- having no idea you’re heading to the airport straight from work, and being totally unprepared..


This is not an airplane outfit.

Anyway, I am excited to check New Mexico off the list (we’re trying to get all 50 states!), and it looks like it’s going to be a rainy weekend in ABQ! 🌧💛

Gotta love this stand-by life!

P.S. – where should we go next weekend??

Okay, So Now What?

Thank you for clicking on my blog!

I guess you could say this is my New Years Resolution.

I’ve thought about starting a blog for years, so in the spirit of finishing everything I never started this, here we are. This may end up being a (public) journal that only I ever read, but hopefully someone will stumble onto this page one day and we can build a community.

I have so many ideas of what to talk about in my blog – a random collection of thoughts and experiences from everyday life of a twenty-something. I’m excited to connect with you about traveling the world, being a #girlboss, thinking long term, making friends, playing video games past my bedtime, and googling “YOLO” to stay relevant.

I don’t have the answers to anything yet, but damn it- I’m trying!

I took this picture this weekend when I visited Portland, Oregon. It’s not really relevant to this post, but it’s too pretty not to share.
