A Friend in England + Oxford

Well, I’m off enjoying some wine tasting today for my birthday, but I wrote a recap yesterday for you all to hopefully enjoy! 🙂 While studying abroad I was so blessed to have many visitors. If you remember, my dad flew over to England with me, and my second visitor was one of my best […]

Bath, England

Hello hello! I hope your weekend is off to a great start! I am headed to a Writing Center conference today…and I had to get up at 5:30. Not fun on a Saturday, but I’m thinking the conference will make up for that! (I wrote this post Friday night, if you were wondering! 😉 ) […]

Brighton Trip

I apologize for my lack of posting lately…as the summer winds down, I seem to be getting busier and busier while trying to fit in appointments, finishing up my online class (finally!), working, and finding time to spend with friends and family. WIAW Isn’t this a […]
