A Night at the Library: MN Zoo Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular 2022

A few years ago I went to my first ever MN Zoo Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular, then COVID happened so we didn't end up going the two years following that. Well, this year it's back or rather we went back to it. The theme for this year was: Night at the Libary. So, everything was themed around various types of books you might find. There are more than 5,000 glowing carved pumpkins at this event. So, there's no way to photograph all of them. But I did photograph a bunch of them. So, I thought I would do a photo gallery type thing from the event since I had an absolute blast at it.…

If I Could Go Anywhere… My Travel Bucket List

If I Could Go Anywhere… My Travel Bucket List

I am a homebody as well as someone with wanderlust. I want to see the world, but I also enjoy spending time at home, cuddled up on the couch (or at my desk). And almost all of my previous travel adventures have been with my family. But, whenever I did travel, some of my favorite things were traveling somewhere new, learning about the history of those locations, and experiencing new things. The polar opposite of who I am at home. Or, more specifically, the things I would like to do/experience.…

The Boston Travel Diaries: Oh the Things You’ll Eat

The Boston Travel Diaries: Oh the Things You’ll Eat

I hemmed and hawed over whether or not to make a post on the places we went to eat to. Mainly as we only when out for dinner and I didn’t take any pictures the first day as I was too exhausted from the plane ride to do so. But heck it, what’s one missing picture?!…

The Boston Travel Diaries: Get Ready With Me

The Boston Travel Diaries: Get Ready With Me

Day Two of working in the MA office, and I couldn’t get this idea out of my head. So, we’re doing a get ready with me. I’m not a morning person (like at all), so I make sure my makeup routine when I have to get up and go places is real quick. If I can put it off until I’m more awake, I will and then I take more time with it. But there’s none of that on office days.​…

The Boston Travel Diaries: First Time Flying in Years

The Boston Travel Diaries: First Time Flying in Years

I probably won’t be posting every day, but I will be posting a few times during my trip. It’s a business trip so it’s not like I’m doing anything extremely exciting to post about. But it is my first trip for business ever and first time flying in years. Pretty sure it’s been seven or eight years since my last flight.​ And I thought this might be a fun idea.…

Photo Diary: Minnesota Zoo Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular

The other night I actually left my house to be "social" by that I mean I hung out with my mom and sister by going to the Minnesota Zoo for the Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular. This is the second year they have done this event, so I didn't know what to inspect since I didn't go last year and held off on looking up any information. This way I could get the full experience. Apparently there were 5,000 illuminated pumpkins all with different sizes, shapes, and faces. It was incredible! …

The 5 Things I Always Pack On Vacation

The 5 Things I Always Pack On Vacation

I'm planning on another vacation in October though I'm not going away for this one. But whenever I do go off on a journey, I tend to always bring along five items with me every time regardless of where I'm going. And this doesn't include my wallet and cellphone, as those are just too obvious. And quite frankly boring since everyone always brings those along. So these are just things that I bring along with me that aren't the basics.…
