Liverpool Recap: Day Two

I’m so glad so many of you enjoyed my recap of our first day in Liverpool! I love being able to connect with others through travel! Our second day started bright and early – my mom and I wanted to get out and grab breakfast before actually beginning our day. We were out of the […]

Liverpool Recap: Day One

Well, it’s a pretty lazy Sunday afternoon around here, so I thought I’d do another travel recap post!

The Life of a Student…

Perfect time to start a blog, right? 😉 Not bad busy, of course: last week was what the U.K. calls “Reading Week” or “Enrichment […]
