The Benefits of Benches

“All the world’s a stage,” and benches are the auditorium seating. I love benches. An odd statement, I know, but hear me out. You sit down on a bench, and set at your feet is the vast world in front of you. Look past the tree, the building, past the horizon. There is still more…

Monday Morsel: Jacob Norby

  I don’t know about you, but I have always been a bit of a misfit. Going with the crowd seemed like a long road to nowhere. I would rather do my own thing. So I do, and I wouldn’t live my life any other way. The people I can relate to most I have…

5 Things To Do Post-Adventure

Adventure has come to be one of my favorite things. Life would seem empty without it. Whether you’re recuperating from a 90-day stay in Europe, or a weekend up north, there are a few things you can do to really gain the most out of the experience. 1) WRITE IT DOWN Even if it was…

San Francisco: The Redwoods

I know the Redwoods aren’t technically in San Francisco, but it was all in the same trip for me, so I am grouping it in there. The best part of the forest for me was going on a hike to try and find the beach. Only in Northern California, right? It ended up being twelve…

Monday Morsel: William Shakespeare

    This is my all time favorite quote by Shakespeare. And if you didn’t already know, I really really like Shakespeare. I chose my favorite playwright to start off our week, because this week celebrates both his birth and his death! No one actually knows for sure what day he was born, so I…

San Francisco: Alcatraz

Prison. Am I the only one who thinks it’s a really funny concept? I mean, who said, “ok, we are going to take all these people who made stupid choices and did bad things, and put them next to each other in little rooms with bars on the front. And they can all hang out…

Monday Morsel: Cynthia Occelli

  I know it may seem like it right now, but your world is not falling apart. You are not falling apart. You are growing into what you are destined to be.    

San Francisco: The Walt Disney Family Museum

If you find yourself in San Francisco and want to learn a little something, then it is definitely worth checking out the Walt Disney Family Museum. It is not owned by the giant corporation, but by the Disney family. The museum is dedicated to Walt, his life, and his accomplishments. Now, I’m sure we are…

Monday Morsel: Gérald Caussé

I know it is technically Tuesday, but I missed yesterday, so I am doing this post today.   This past weekend was full of wonderful talks in General Conference for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Bishop Gérald Caussé was one of my favorites. Are you taking the wonders around you for granted?…

San Francisco: The City

San Francisco has a reputation for being a little crazy. But I’ve always liked crazy. The city is so inspiring to me, so many stories to watch, new things to experience. I loved the time I was able to spend there. The French might say that a city can be judged by the quality of…
