And I must say, Christina Skis absolutely LOVES Arizona. I had a conference in Scottsdale, and when there’s a work thing,Continue reading “I Ditched PA for Another Arizona Adventure”

A Twenty-Something’s Quest for Adventure Friends

It’s the 17th of January, a week when all the resolutioners begin to drop like flies at the gym. I, on the other hand, had dreams of blowing the blog up this year.

Unplugged. A Soliloquy.

I find it almost amusing that this is my topic of choice as I type this on my iPhone when I should be sleeping. We have no wifi access in the house so why not use my data plan?
