The Oregon Ramble

I'm not a great vlogger, but Oregon is beautiful.



Sometimes we forget that our luggage has been the same places we have. Our suitcases and backpacks are our most constant travel companions. Not every bag goes on every trip, but we all have our favorites. The old canvas knapsack that one of your siblings commandeered from your father years ago that you've finally been...

What Plans?

So, I guess if you average out the posts I made this month, you could say I made a post every week. I'll be honest: I forgot that was a plan I made in like, the second week.  July was a bit hectic at times, so I'm honestly just proud I kept up two creative things... Continue Reading →
