Hi there! My name is Natalie, and I’m so happy to meet you! I grew up half in a suburban neighborhood in Michigan and half in a small beach town on the border of Rhode Island. Now, I’m studying in Richmond, Virginia, and I couldn’t be having more fun!

I would say that I’m just your normal girl, but my friends would argue that that’s not true.┬áBesides drinking bubble tea, journaling at airport gates, and looking at pictures of bunnies on Pinterest, my favorite thing to do is make people smile.

I want to share my adventures with you as I explore local (and sometimes not-so-local) places while also searching for happiness and simplicity in life.
