When we went to Los Angeles I had mixed feelings about it. I expected glamour and glitz but what we mainly saw was a lot of run down buildings and ruin. We stayed in a pretty dodgy area, so maybe that clouded things. Once we got exploring though, it turned out to be a pretty cool city.CONTINUE READING
I have still never been to Disney World. I’ve wanted to go soooo badly for as long as I can remember, but when it came time to decide on a family vacation when I was a senior in high school, a cruise won out. Totally not complaining, that was amazing too. When I went to visit my friend Amanda in California, and we were faced with a choice for free passes to Disneyland for the day, we decided to regress a few years and were like kids in a candy shop.
I found some long lost pictures! Well, not horrible long ago, a few years, but I thought they were wiped out with my laptops last hissy fit. Turns out I had just “sorted” them into a folder that didn’t make a lot of sense on my external hard drive. There’s me trying to be organised again, yikes.CONTINUE READING
The summer before I moved to England (2010, I can’t believe it’s been three years!) Adam came to visit and we decided to take a weekend trip somewhere. Where I’m from in upstate New York is about three and a half hours away from Niagara Falls, so we always tend to take visitors there. One place I hadn’t been was Niagara-on-the-lake, and it was such a great place to visit.
My Papa has been a rancher his whole life, until he and my Nana moved to Eastern Oregon near the coast and he took up cranberry farming. He is the main man running the bogs outside Bandon with his cousins and a few helpers. Since I was little I remember coming to work with him on our visits to Oregon, stopping off at a diner for breakfast on the way. So I thought I’d share a few pictures, as a lot of people don’t realise where their cranberries come from.
