After San Diego, our next destination was Las Vegas. We stayed at the TownePlace Suites in Henderson, Nevada -just a short drive to the strip. We chose to stay at this hotel because it included a small kitchen in the room with pans, dishes, and utensils that we could use to cook meals together. By eating the … Continue reading Throwback: Vegas Baby!
My Love and I stayed in San Diego for 3 days. We stayed at a Holiday Inn Express, which is our go-to line of hotels. They’re nice, clean, and welcoming, but still affordable. Our hotel was technically just North of San Diego. We chose not to stay in the city to save some money. This hotel was … Continue reading Throwback: Sunny San Diego

This is very convenient for many reasons, but it also … Continue reading Crying Over Toilet Paper

And let me tell you, that was delicious! The whip itself was worth the trip, but that's about all. I … Continue reading The Dole Plantation
Before I begin, I'll share some background on my unique experience. I never thought I would find myself in Hawaii. So I never planned on working in private schools. Back home, our public schools are well-funded, have great teachers, and are supported through the local communities. However, since that isn't entirely the case in Hawaii's … Continue reading An Honest Reflection from a First-Year Teacher: Quarter 1
