Travel Troubles with Bex

I suppose I’ve taken for granted that flying is easy peasy. Except for that one time that we almost missed our flight to Ireland, I don’t usually tend to have any problems. Leg 1: Philly to HarrisburgI was in New Jersey this weekend for a family reunion (which is the reason this blog is late) [...]

I always want to be Bayou

Last week I hinted that I was going on another adventure and boy did I go on another adventure! Thomas, his family, and I went to the Big Easy – New Orleans, Louisiana. This was my third time venturing down to the Crescent City, this time not on a school trip. (I know, those teachers [...]

A Year in Review: 2018’s Top Nine

I was really excited to find that people are doing their “Top Nine” again this year. I think it’s a really cool way to reflect on the year, based solely on your social media posts on Instagram. Now, I know there are important events that won’t have been commemorated with a photo post and that [...]

IT’S THE BIG ONE-ZERO-ZERO

He moved home the day after graduation and then the day after that he moved to Tennessee. It was a wild ride that I was extraordinarily glad I wasn’t on. He handled [...]

The Best of (my) Ireland

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day weekend, everyone! Conveniently enough, last week I told you I would tell you all about the wonderful things that I loved in Ireland- how better to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day than by sharing my favorite experiences? A couple of things stand out to me when I think back to my week [...]

Peas Out, Cub Scout

Believe it or not, as you are reading this, I am out of the country. Yes, again. Peace out, USA. Two months short of a year since my last excursion outside of the US, I’m at it again, crossing borders.  This time I’m flying across the pond with a bit more luggage in tow. My [...]
