We waited until the new year to catch the botanical garden holiday lights, its last few days on display. It was a rare chance to walk through the garden at night- I’m so impressed with the glittery fantasy world created!
Christmas itself was cozy and quiet. I got to spend Christmas in a Cabin, and New Year’s Eve in a yurt! Happy New Year! Jason is the better fisher. He is also the better cook! Messi came for both Thanksgiving and Christmas. He loves the fire! How many cats will just go on a long […]
In the past, I’ve had a hard time getting in the Christmas spirit (I worked a lot of retail!), but I found myself wanting to be more festive this year. Actual Christmas day in Columbus Went to see the tiny houses in Bowman with Jessica and little Tallulah, the DIY art! We thought Santa was […]
I am so happy to have a tiny part in the Blunt Bangs music video, which ALSO fulfilled my dream of having a private roller skating pizza party! The band’s new album Proper Smoker is great and available everywhere now! Roller skating is my favorite activity at the moment… even though I’m not the best […]
Mid-summer getaway to St Helena Island and Hunting Island State Park. We ate shrimp burgers and got a lot of sun. Saw a family of raccoons in the swamp too but I accidentally deleted the video! Many thanks to my mom’s friend Ifetayo for hosting- she’s known me since I was a little kid and […]
Last year, I got to see the start of these red pools on Arabia Mountain. This year, we went in late March to see the Elf Orpine in fuller bloom. I hope this becomes an annual springtime tradition- love to see the show!
Picked up a couple flakey pastries from Sandholt and headed toward the volcano. The Fagradalsfjall volcano eruption started in late March, but it was having a calm week when we visited (new lava flow was spotted the night after we left!). I got a sudden rush of vertigo out of nowhere on the hike so […]
Woke up on the horse farm and were greeted by some cuties. We had a scenic hike through a smoky valley to Reykjadalur. The bubbling hot springs mix with the cold river to create a perfect, natural river to relax in. Lots of hot mud pools, steam, sheep and waterfalls to see on the way. […]
I didn’t take a picture but we went pretty nuts on the breakfast buffet at our hotel. Fruit, danishes, breads, pickled herring, smoked trout, cheeses and tomatoes, mmmm! A good chunk of the road looks like an alien field of mossy rocks so we pulled over to a small walkway and learned this was part […]
Started our day at the Keriō (the tub) Crater. It was formed about 6,500 years ago. We walked to the bottom where you can see small fish in the crater lake- the turquoise water looks so vivid against the red volcanic rock. These horses liked the taste of Jason’s overalls. Another majestic waterfall- Seljalandsfoss. The […]
