Snapshots from the Road


Well after this week I can officially check off ‘Take a Road trip’ off of my bucket list! This past week my Dad and I shared the 1,800 mile drive from Massachusetts to North Dakota, with a great deal of fast food, singing (at least on my part) and beautiful scenery.

The road trip started at one of my favorite coffee shops in North Andover, called Heavenly Donuts. I just love the coconut macaroon iced coffee and am already looking for a great coffee shop here in Bismarck!


I had such a fun time driving my new car across the country! I’m definitely getting used to having my own car for the first time in my life, and couldn’t be happier in my little Subaru 🙂1098173_1940457031292_2106563610_n

It was wonderful passing through the Wisconsin country side, to see the corn, cows and how huge the sky is without skyscrapers in the way.

After three days we finally made it to North Dakota, and despite all the bugs left on my car we had such a great time! I’ve spent the past few days visiting local stores, thrifting and decorating my new apartment. I can’t wait to share photos in the upcoming weeks as my place comes together.

Hope you’re having a great weekend!
