PSA: You Do Not Need Physical ID to Vote in Arkansas

Recently, I had the pleasure of re-registering to vote in my home state. I say pleasure because while I found myself more at ease in the political atmosphere of California, voting in Arkansas has much more weight for me. I want to help evolve the political atmosphere in Arkansas, be it through my voting, my... Continue Reading →

Onward and Southward

For the past month, I have been substitute teaching at an elementary school in Jonesboro. It has been a completely new experience that I never would have imagined delving into. My sister is the teacher, not me. But I have enjoyed it. It has helped demystify children and I now know Common Core math. Well,... Continue Reading →

Let’s Elope

After watching and experiencing Ashlyn and Luke O’s beautiful wedding in May, we realized that a large wedding was not for us. We were already a year into our engagement and so far had located a venue. We were excited to marry each other, but we were not excited to put in the work and... Continue Reading →

Welcome Home

When we left the South last year, I didn't imagine being back a year later. Of course, at that point, I wasn't sure what our next step would be. Luke and I wanted to broaden our experiences outside the boundaries of the Mason-Dixon line and San Francisco fit the bill. Our year in San Francisco... Continue Reading →

Mile by Mile, Photo by Photo

We are about halfway through our long trek back to the South. In the past few days, we have gazed at the Grand Canyon, ogled the Painted Desert, and backtracked through the Petrified Forest National Park. All this was done with cat and dog in tow. Traveling with pets isn’t something that is new to us. We... Continue Reading →
