TACO TOUR 2016

TACOS. TACOS. TACOS. Yes, this is a post about TACOS. Yesterday was the 2nd Annual Taco Tour…And it was delicious. Monica made up the taco tour last year as a part of her bday celebration since she adores tacos. Andddddd now it’s a tradition. And traditions are great. Especially when they involve food.  Continue reading “TACO TOUR 2016”

Long Distance Love

I used to say I could never be in a long distance relationship.

What’s the point?! Sounds mi-s-er-a-bleeeeee.

While it’s certainly not all rainbows and kittens, it’s worth it when you know that person is your person. The distance doesn’t feel as hopeless when you’ve found the person who fills you with hope. But it’s fucking hard. There’s no candy coating that, my friends.

My marine will be home a month from today, for a few weeks, and I’m so so so so so excited. I haven’t seen him since the first day of the year, but we’ve found ways to combat not being physically together. We write cheesy letters to each other (YES, LETTERS. SENT IN THE MAIL!) and every time I get one from him it’s an instant day brightener.

FUN FACT: If you’re sending mail to a military base (even if it’s alllll the way in Japan), all you need is one US stamp! Yay USPS helping out the military folk.

We message each other every day, no matter the time difference, and make time to video chat when we can. It’s not always convenient, but it’s always worth it.

If you’re in a LDR, I applaud you and wish you nothing but the best.

Savannah Trip Booked!

A few weeks ago, I posted an article about 5 places I want to visit this year. I’m excited to say I’ll be able to cross off Savannah as I just booked a trip for Labor Day weekend! I’ve never been and I absolutely can’t wait — I’ll be going with Kelsey, who joined me in DC last Labor Day weekend! Looks like it’ll have to become a tradition for us to explore a new place each LD!

Have you been to Savannah? Are you a local? Recommendations are plenty welcome!

Meet the godchildren

It’s pouring rain here in NY so I’m stuck inside – womp womp. Just got done video chatting with my boyfriend (who will be home TWO MONTHS FROM TODAY) — we’re both freaking out, it’s great. Plans for the rest of the day will probably involve snacking, coloring, Netflix, snacking, laundry, snacking, snacking, Netflix.

But, before I get to work on my busy agenda, I wanted to share with y’all photos of my beautiful godchildren. My beautiful, beautiful, four-legged, furry godchildren.

I just met my godson, Maximus, for the first time last night and he is SO DARN ADORABLY SMALL AND CUTE I CANNOT HANDLE IT. LOOK! (ignore the food on his nose, HE’S A GROWING BOY!)

And this is his older sister, Lilybug. She is beautiful and crazy and everyone adores her and she knows it.

I adore animals and I’m so lucky to have such beautiful pups and kitties in my life! Hope y’all have an incredible weekend.
