Hi hello, I don’t if you remember me since it’s been about two months since I last blogged, but I have lots of news. Well explanations. Since it’s been a while. The good news? Most of the reasons I’ve been gone have been very very exciting! So what have I been up to you ask? Life update time!
I founded a company!
Myself and my great friend/fellow travel blogger Where is Kait founded a travel themed apparel company called see + sonder!

France and England (and a hot second in NYC!)

After that, it’s back to England for lots of family time, (including a bit of a reunion!) and then a few days in London as well, before heading to New York City for another reunion, this one with my study abroad family for a wedding! Phew.
Do you have any summer plans? I’d love to hear about them below!
