Going away means never having to say you’re sober

If you asked people who knew Brittany and I to describe us, “social” would definitely not be an adjective that was left off the list. We just seem to meet great people everywhere we go, and as a result, our social circles are pretty expansive. So when it came time to say goodbye to everyone […]

Packing list

After hours of research I think we have finally done it. Thats right we actually figured out what is going in our backpacks. Now for those that know me you understand this is a huge accomplishment. I haven’t packed ahead of time for any of my vacations (normally a 30 minute quick grab of everything […]

That Nervous Feeling You Get Before You Jump

Breathe…..breathe……just breathe……Ok….that’s better. One thing I’ve done extensively for the last month is read a number of round the world blogs and attempted to collate their packing lists into the “ultimate best packing list ever” (UBPLE). However, in typical Me fashion, I’ve been hit with a case of analysis paralysis, reading conflicting reports, checking every […]

Good bye AFDIL, its been a blast!

Last day of work! Holy crap things are starting to get real. I figured this was kind of gonna be the turning point. No more money coming in, nothing holding me to DC any longer… but I still wasn’t prepared for how sad it is. To be completely honest, I love my job. For those […]

Our First “One Minute In It” video is posted!

Each week we’ll be putting together a short one minute video with clips of what we’ve been up to this week. I edit out all the boring things (like Brittany’s stamp collecting and anything to do with Seans  day-to-day job)  so that it’s (hopefully) entertaining to watch.  Which of course it will be because… well….

How to lose your mind: part one

 Okay, as my friends and family know… I am not the most responsible person. Hell, I’m one of the least responsible people I know.  (As a warning this is written in a fit of frustration after I’ve spent an hour trying to cancel credit cards and get replacement IDs and what not from losing my […]

New Years Retrospective

We’re gearing up for New Years, but we’re ditching the fancy ball gowns and dresses – and whatever Brittany was going to wear, and going to a cabin in the woods. Friends, booze, and a hottub, it should be a great time. I had been complacent for many years in my life, content to live […]
