You know how oftentimes you look back on a year and think, “Where did the time go? Everything happened so fast.” This was not one of those years for me. I know where the time went. I was BUSY.

Oops! I did it again. Working remote from the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
As some of you may know, I’ve been working remote since March 2020 and in 2021 I seized the opportunity to spend four months in South Carolina. My boyfriend and I packed up the car with the dog and cat and Airbnb’d it until summer returned to Minnesota. We traveled so much in 2021 that […]Read more

MyCanoe Pop: The Foldable Canoe Review
So yeah, we own a foldable canoe. And it turns heads, to say the least. There hasn’t been a single time that we’ve taken it out and NOT gotten stopped by someone wanting to know if we were in fact unfolding an entire canoe.
