Life Above 14,000ft.

After taking my first trip out to Colorado in 2013 and getting to experience the mountains, things changed for me.

Sit yourself at the… Continue reading Life Above 14,000ft.

Spring Break & Self-Care!

I am happily looking forward to this next week of no schedule and deadlines. With only 7 weeks left until Boston, I had… Continue reading Spring Break & Self-Care!
