I spent a lot of time on Instagram trying to make sure that I could see and do everything that I wanted to do while we had time. And the photos I saw, just didn’t seem real.

I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend! I just got back a few days ago from my very first Alaskan cruise and it was AMAZING!

Recently, my mom made the move to Portland, OR for a new job. This was a pretty hard decision for her to make because she really didn’t want to leave the city she has called home all her life. To go to a brand new city, with new neighborhoods, no friends, and no idea what lies ahead is scary. But it’s a decision I am happy that she made.
