Oh How I Long To Wander: A Trip Down Memory Lane

map of the world

I am a wanderer.

I am always up for a new adventure, a unique opportunity to explore, a new chance to learn, and a new chance to see. I am longing for those days of exploration. So much so that my smartphone could feel it. These smartphones are a little scary sometimes! When I woke up yesterday, all of these memory videos were beautifully created, simply waiting for me to click play. So I did and was so excited to go on a trip down memory lane.

Of course, I could not take this journey without you all. If you are anything like me, other people’s travel adventures inspire you. I hope a few of my memories will inspire you to explore when given the opportunity.



What a blast we had during our short weekend trip to Williamsburg! As you will see, Gabby loves making crazy faces 🙂 .

I wish I had footage of Gabby and I screaming for dear life as we rode the Colossal Curl over and over again.


This is a video that I created after a road trip with my middle daughter and oldest nephew. As our country transitions away from a leader that has encouraged divisiveness, this is a reminder of the strides that we have made as a country, as well as the work that is yet to be done.

I hope you enjoy!

Much Love,

Perfectly Imperfect but VERY PROUD WOMAN, MOM, LAWYER, and AUTHOR, but most importantly...LIFE LOVER! I laugh loud, I work hard, I play hard, I am adventurous, I am curious, I am driven, I have moments of deep insecurity, I am loving, I am vulnerable, I am explosive (not one of my finer qualities), I dance around my house alone, I am an awful perfectionist which makes my insecurity worse, I sing out loud in my car without any concern for whose watching, I have trust issues, I do not live through my children, I no longer try to force my children into the mold that I created so that I could feel validated as a mother, I am a risk-taker, I am guarded in my personal life, I am kind, I am grateful. I am so excited about the rest of my life!
