The doc and I went on a pretty epic camping trip through the southwest this summer–that had us visiting family in Phoenix, Lake Powell, onto Durango CO, Silverton CO, Moab UT, Arches National Park, Canyonlands National Park, Capitol Reef National Park, a nail biting drive on the Moki Dugway, a stop at Monument Valley, andContinue reading “travel : UTAZ 2019.”
I just got back from two weeks on the road–camping across the south and stopping in places like Louisville, Memphis, Shreveport, Dallas, El Paso, Las Cruces, White Sands, Phoenix, Joshua Tree, and Palm Springs. It was a trip. I got a lot of reading, knitting, and sun in. It was magical. My field bag keptContinue reading “trips | xcountry camping.”
Last weekend, Sean and I had a quick trip to Italy for my closest friends’ wedding. Mackenzie + Matteo are perfect for one another, and our trip, a whirlwind. We visited Padova and Roma and it was magical. You can see snaps from our trip here.
Roanhorse Canyon, Navajo Nation, norther New Mexico–Sean’s grandma’s land. It’s the most perfect camping spot and the only one we got to hit up this summer as part of our cross country journey from Phoenix to Boston, where we are now together, putting our house together. Summer, why do you ever have to leave? SeeContinue reading “cross country.”

It’s a gorgeous spot. Plenty of trails (which allow dogs, hurrah!) and campground facilities, all the while making you feel remote andContinue reading “tripping.”
It was pretty ratty flying around Thanksgiving. The hoards of people. But, at least there’s plane ride reading. I read Terms of Endearment over the break. It was a pretty depressing novel; haven’t seen the movie. You should read some Larry McMurtry in your lifetime, though. You won’t regret it.
I spent Thanksgiving with my guy Sean and his family in sunny Phoenix. These saguaro never get old. Right?
This summer, I spent most of my time on various amazing, life changing trips. Nights in a moon roofed tent, days hiking in canyons and swimming in secluded lakes. If I could go back and start them all over again, I would. If you want to see some snaps from my jaunt through the southwest,Continue reading “camping.”
Nothing more spectacular; northern Arizona.
After the loop, Chicago.
