studying on-the-go

I'm currently entrenched in studying---even more so than usual as I prepare for the second part of my national board exam-a massive standardized test that I have to pass in order to become a dentist. It's a big deal! That being said, I haven't stopped living my life. I haven't stopped making time for family and friends and travel and all the parts of life that I love most.

death valley national park

Welcome to the hottest place on Earth! ☀️ 🌏 
Lucky me, I got to visit with the hottest guy I know. 💍 
And lucky for both of us that we visited during late winter when the temperatures are still tolerable.

the great southwest by the numbers

Just back from a week in the Great Southwest where I squeezed every drop of fun out of my spring break. I made it back home at 3AM this morning, so today was an extra-long day for me. It's back to business as usual now, but first, I wanted to share a little taste of our week out the numbers.

where the neon lights go to die...

Hello from Las Vegas!
We’re currently road-tripping through the west coast for spring break. We’ve already seen so many amazing things and had so many unique experiences that I know there will be lots to share from this trip. So, I’m attempting to blog in real time to kick off sharing our adventures sooner.
