It's going to be hard to write this without letting tears fall to my keyboard, but the happiest tears.

The last few months of… Continue reading Disney World: Epcot

It truly feels like a giant weight has been lifted off my shoulders for finally posting the last half of… Continue reading Tokyo, Japan: Part 2
My family and I had the pleasure of attending my cousin’s beautiful wedding this weekend. The weather was perfect, the lighting was that ideal dusky blue as the sun was setting behind the mountains.
