the adventure begins

Hi there and welcome to my blog!

In my 22 (almost 23) years so far, I've done a few adventurous things. I've climbed the Great Wall of China, looked out over the Grand Canyon, picnicked under the Eiffel Tower, and toured London by bike, among many other places I've been fortunate enough to visit.

I've had some truly incredible experiences, despite not really being a thrill-seeker. But what I find more intriguing is the adventure of everyday life. Although life is often measured by big events like graduations, weddings, birthdays, and holidays, these events actually make up a very small portion of our time. Adventure, whether we choose to find it or not, is often found in a morning cup of coffee, an afternoon stroll, or a family dinner. Big adventures are important, but so are the little adventures we fill our days with.

I recently graduated from college and began the transition into adulthood. As I continue to navigate this new terrain of forty hour work weeks, paying bills, and whatever else adults are supposed to do (I'm still figuring this out), I'm determined to make each day its own adventure. In fact, my 2017 one-word theme is ADVENTURE. So, this blog is both an adventure in itself as well as a way to document other adventures. You can expect to find posts on everything from style and travel to faith and general life updates. I hope you will follow along with me as I discover all of life's little (and big!) adventures.
