After a little break (hello wedding, football season, playoffs & Super Bowl!) I’m back! Chris and I spent a short weekend in Santa Fe, New Mexico for a minimoon together this past November. Since his Paramedic course won’t be over until June, we aren’t able to have an official honeymoon for quite some time. But we made the most of our time together exploring a new city!
“Where’s Patagonia?” Embarassingly, that was the first thing that came to mind when Chris said Patagonia was at the top of his bucket list. After a little research, our first big nonrev adventure through Torres Del Paine National Park was planned for January 2016.
Exploring the Galapagos Islands was a trip of a lifetime. Here are a few simple things I wish I knew beforehand to better prepare us!
My dad and I had been planning to go the Galapagos for about two years. Because this was our bucket list trip-of-a-lifetime, we knew we wanted to see the most we could and enjoy ourselves as much as possible (who doesn’t?!). So I dove into planning more than a year in advance.
Recently I got a “move-up” off a nasty redeye to work a trip to Iceland! I had taken a trip last summer with Chris where we did our own version of the “Golden Circle” tour. It was amazing, but that meant that The Blue Lagoon was still on my bucket list. Was it worth it? I say Yes.
Let’s just start with nothing is ever set in stone! My fiancé went through so many changes throughout the process. I had no idea what to expect, as there is such little information online or given to the trainees. Just remember this is what we went through, and it might be very different for others.
As a flight attendant, I always have a bag packed at all times. It’s sometimes tough to keep track of everything I need to pack and repack, so I’ve finally accepted that certain items just need to be kept in my suitcase so I’ll always have them with me. Here’s a few items that I simply can’t leave home without! Some things might seem obvious, but others might surprise you!
I never thought the day would come! Chris and I have been engaged since September 2016 (in the beautiful Banff!). Between his hectic schedule during Pararescue training and my commitment to cheering, it’s been close to impossible for us to figure out a great time to get married.
Hi! So I’ve been toying with the idea of starting a blog for awhile now to have way to share my story and insights as a flight attendant. And as a wife of an Active Duty service member (more specifically, Pararescue) the only thing constant thing in my life will be change.
