Back when Christmas was a blur and New Years was around the corner, my boyfriend and I took a quick trip to Seattle, Washington. It was our first vacation together as a couple and we were very, very excited. We were also very, very terrified since neither of us had been on a plane in 15 years and had no idea what we were doing. Shoutout to the nice lady who showed us how baggage labels worked in the San Jose airport at 5 o’clock in the morning. BUT. Any travel jitters aside, it all worked out great! I don’t get out the state very often and I was stoked to see the Pacific Northwest (spoiler alert: it’s frickin beautiful). I’m nowhere near a travel blogger and me having some ~fancy layout~ with ~fancy travel photography~ would be super sad and awkward. So instead, here’s a few Washington thoughts from a California girl who spent 90% of the trip going “but when does the sun come back???”

I already have an obsession with making lists and Christmas doesn’t help that. Cold weather means I gotta bullet out the wintery blog ideas. Write down the holiday itinerary. And, most importantly, organize that massive wish list. To be honest, me making a fancy Christmas wish list is a bit of a joke because 1) I’m a desperately poor post-grad and 2) my parents would just look at it like “lol no.” But that never stops a girl from dreaming. Even though I’m nowhere near an income bracket that could afford any of these things, here’s my list of items I wish Santa would bless me with.

Hey, everyone! After my blog decided to randomly go haywire for a few days (thanks, self-hosting) I’m finally back in business. While I was planning out my next few weeks’ posts, I decided I wanted to start doing monthly reflections. I know I’m not the first blogger in the world to come up with this, haha… But after all the craziness that’s happened recently I wanted a way to just document life and be open with you guys. Welcome to Episode 1 ✨
