I feel extremely blessed to have been born and raised in such a beautiful state.

In California, Hipmunk by KatelynLeave a Comment

California – the land of promise for thousands of people. To be honest California has never really interested me. I could care less about the Hollywood lifestyle. I’d much rather enjoy the outdoors smog and botox free. But, recently California has peaked my interest. My youngest sister recently moved to Orange, California for pharmacy school and now that I have …

In Maine, Portland by Katelyn6 Comments

The following post was written by me and brought to you by Domain.ME, who I teamed up with for their #StateofME campaign. Hands down, Maine is the best state.

Fun and Adventure in Denver

In United States by Katelyn2 Comments

Often overlooked as just the gateway to the Colorado Rocky Mountains, Denver is a city worth staying in for a few days for some outdoor adventure. It’s best to visit in September, once most tourists have left but the city still holds onto summer weather with a few autumnal shades starting to appear.

Maine Day Hikes: Sabattus Mountain

Sabattus Mountain is located on Sabattus Trail Road, …
