Exploring North Dakota

I don’t even remember the last time I went to North Dakota. Maybe it was during middle school when we drove to Glacier National Park? Either way, a return to the state was long over due! After leaving Devil’s Tower in Wyoming, we made the four hour drive up to Medora, North Dakota. If you enjoy big blue skies, lots of space and hundreds of miles in between towns, that drive is perfect for you! […]

Boston I should be able to check this off the list very soon – we booked a flight to Boston last week and are planning to go at the end […]

Six Places on My International Travel Bucket List

I have wanderlust on a typical day, but being stuck inside and not really knowing when we can travel again has intensified it. I’m hoping (fingers crossed) for a fall vacation to Boston and up the coast to Maine this year, but kind of playing that by ear and waiting to see how the virus spread goes before hopping on a flight. But since I’m over here dreaming about the day I can start checking […]
