Part diary, part travel journal, this isn't your typical travel blog. It's home to stories of travel, as well as stories of life, loss, and personal growth. It's my journey from South Louisiana to adulthood writ large. These pages are my story. And I've shared it all here in hopes I'll inspire you to live large! After all, we only get one shot at this thing called life, so why not LIVE it?

Dive Deep Into My Travel Adventures

Hello! Carlie here.

Welcome to my domain, a place where I share travel tales, accounts of encroaching adulthood, and many other sorted stories. But, seriously though, I'm just here for the photos. I started this blog in 2015 as a way to catalog my vacations. In the meantime, it's become so much more. The pages are the best of me, or what's left after 12 years of full-time mental health work.

When I'm not working, I'm likely spending quality time on my yoga mat, cuddling my kitties, or exploring my neighborhood. I'm just a normal, everyday chick living in Southern California trying to make sense of it all. Join me in the search for sanity, authenticity, and bravery. Oh, and some adventure, too!

And don't forget to sign up for my weekly newsletter. Filled with fun stories, travel tips, and lifestyle guides, emails from me are like sharing a cup of coffee with an old friend. In fact, I highly suggest reading with a jolt of joe!
