Almost every year since I was 3, my family and I have traveled to Illinois to visit our relatives. Aunts, uncles, grandparents, and cousins: all spread in various Chicago suburbs. While we cherish time with our loved ones, it felt like we never really saw the city in all its crowded, touristy glory.
Back on the road again! Luke and I have slowly been conquering all the national parks within our reach. Only 3 hours west of Phoenix, a certain Flintstones-esque park has been on our list… Destination: Joshua Tree National Park!
While the majority of our travels are road trips, Luke and I were looking to do something special to celebrate 1 year of dating! With a mix of hiking, beaches, and city life, we knew just the place for our next getaway. Destination: Portland, Oregon!
