The next day we headed … Continue reading Missouri Camping Trip-Wine and Hiking!
Back in February when Keaton and I started planning vacation for the year, we decided to take a little trip after his graduation before he started studying hard for boards. We knew we needed some time away to relax and unwind, and this trip ended up being perfect for that! We had zero cell service … Continue reading Missouri Camping Trip
Guys. 2017 is HALF over. Craziness. This spring has truly flown by and I don't think the summer will be any slower. I decided since we are at the halfway point for the year, I would do a little check-in to see how my 2017 goals are progressing!

Every contract will probably … Continue reading What Should I Put In My Contract? 5 Reasonable Requests
I originally started this blog to chronicle both travel nursing and fitness adventures. However, with us being stationary for the last 8 months, travel adventures have sort of taken a back seat in our lives.
