Campervan Packing List

In a few hours I’ll be embarking on an 11-day campervan road trip with my boyfriend Glenn and dog Audi. EEK! Nothing left to do now but be extremely Type A by checking and rechecking everything we’ve packed.

I finally went to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter

I am a huge Harry Potter fan (who isn’t?!) and as a diehard Potterhead I knew I’d make it to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter eventually.

Lake Nokomis, WI | Weekend Getaway

Solo Camping Trip | Suitcasey

“A woman camping in the middle of nowhere by herself?! *Gasp* How dangerous!” That’s the general reaction I received when I told people what I wanted to do with my long 4th of July weekend. But camping in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan is something I’ve always wanted to do and in my head I […]
