Returning to Your College Town (There and Back Again: Part 1)

It’s strange to walk the streets of a place/city you’ve once lived in, grown in, cried in, and thrived in.

I’m listing tips about the fun stuff. Continue reading

A Saturday On The Beach

A Saturday On The Beach

The three musketeers visited Dorset this past weekend y’all. I feel like it’s been ages since we did a trip like this. The last one was our Brighton Trip before summer! (Crazy.) The timing for this trip was absolutely perfect. I had just submitted a uni deadline (literally three hours beforehand), and I was SO looking forward to a weekend away Continue reading
