Boston 2015: Day One

A couple of months ago, my longtime friend messaged me on Twitter as she always did. She said she was going to Boston in November. It’s been years since we last saw each other, so a meeting was long overdue. Plus, I have never been. As one who’s hard-pressed to turn down a chance to travel when it arises, I promptly told her that I’m going up to see her.

Hello New York

Long time no see, Manhattan! This is my third visit to New York and the first one in a decade. I was set to attend the Future of Web Design conference for work, but I came a day earlier to enjoy a few activities before it started.

Cross Country 2014: Almost There!

Cross Country 2014: Goodbye Canyons

I’ve mentioned a few times that we’re moving to the east coast this summer, and it’s finally happening! We left Vegas this morning to start our four-day drive to Philadelphia. I’m typing this entry from Grand Junction, Colorado!

It was a good drive today. Uneventful, but good. We had music on blast while driving through the canyons in Utah with clear skies above us. I’m always amazed at the sight of canyons. Those things have been around long before we came to be, shaped by thousands of years of weathering and erosion, and they’re absolutely gorgeous. Read more…
