Happy Sunday, everyone! I hope wherever you’re reading this post is as beautiful as where I’m writing it from — my sunny backyard in Albany, New York! This week has been a quiet one for me as I focus on website updates, finishing up freelancing projects, and tackling my never-ending inbox avalanche.
I snapped this photo while walking my canine nephew Boo in Rochester. I stopped to visit...

Greetings from Toronto! I’m posting from TBEX, the travel blogging conference that I gushed about last year in Colorado. This conference has well and truly been a whirlwind, and I’m glad I’ve set aside the next week to decompress at a desk and try to put into action all the inspiration and ideas I’ve felt bubbling up over the past few days.
Sadly I had exactly zero time to explore...

Greetings from New York! I’ve been back in my favorite state for a full week now, and I’ve managed to squeeze in a quick visit with friends in Brooklyn, half a dozen NYU graduation celebrations for my sister, familypalooza with the out-of-towners that came to our party in Albany, numerous trips to Chipotle, and strep throat. That last one has been especially fun.
I flew back on the specific...

This post marks the final week in this particular chapter of my travels. After five months and four countries, I am headed back to New York for some much-needed family and friend time, as well a bit of work and health business to take care of.
At the moment I’m dying to write a big, verbose post about all the emotions that are spilling out of me at this most significant moment — but I have...

One hundred weeks. Seven hundred days. Nearly two full years. That’s how long I’ve been doing this Photo of the Week project. It started as a creative project inspired by the Photo of the Day project that my mentor at the time, Heather Holt, was taking on. Over time it’s morphed into more of a visual diary, a week-by-week photographic record of how I’m spending my life. My blog is...

Another week, more underwater photos and declarations that time is moving too quickly. You all must be getting bored of this by now, am I right?!
It is crunch time on finishing my divemaster course, so I was very lucky that this week I was able to bring my camera on one dive and also have an afternoon at the beach. Believe it or not, in my full month here so far this was the first time I have sat my butt...

I laughed as I uploaded this week’s Photo of the Week candidates, which were taken with everything from an iPhone camera to a high-end point and shoot to a borrowed dSLR so expensive it would have wiped out my net worth had I accidentally dropped it.
I’m behind on work, I’m feeling ill, I’m rushing to complete my Divemaster course — and I’ve never been happier. Maybe...

I hope you guys are ready for lots of underwater Photos of the Week in the upcoming month… because these days, that’s where I’m spending most of my time! I’ve jumped headfirst into my Divemaster course, which is just flying by. I underestimated how difficult it would be to juggle my normal workload with a full-time professional diving course and of course trying to squeeze in bits...
