A Little Instagram Action at Marsh Creek.

I spent this 90 degree Memorial Day at Marsh Creek Paddle Boarding; it’s becoming my new addiction. We paddled for three hours, at least one full one being spent lounging in the middle of the lake. My friend’s girlfriend informed us that “paddle boarding yoga” is now a thing. We attempted a few yoga poses (none

Gettysburg in Pictures

Last week I paid for the majority of my Ireland trip.  It left a pretty devastating hole in my bank account I’ve been trying not to look at.  I decided I should probably put in my head that my four day Memorial Day weekend would have to be cheap; I even considered using it as a work weekend.

Planning a Soberish Fun Day I meant to start this post Sunday, but my body has literally prevented me. I believe I’ve posted before how I try and have “sober fun weekends” every once in a while, to convince myself there is no problem.   I try and find some sort of activity (preferably outdoors) which
