It's finally 2019! What a year 2018 has been...from the bad to the good, I found this past year to be quite the roller-coaster compared to previous years. But I've survived, though, and I'm ready to tackle 2019! Looking back, I found 2018 to be one of the harder years in my adulthood so far. …

5 Years on WordPress! (and reflections)

Destination: Paris, France (October 2018 Edition, Part 2)

Bonjour! The first two nights in Paris during my five-night stay over the October holidays were pretty busy with sightseeing and (lots of) eating. This isn't to say that the next three nights were calm, though-- in fact, I still did quite a bit, all the while balancing it with day trips to other places …
