Hello, I'm Samantha.
This blog was a place for me to share travels, photos, & daily life with people around the globe. I created this blog right before I took off to Florence, Italy for a semester abroad. Well, one thing led to another & I had to study abroad again in London so I kept the blog & continued to share my adventures with friends, family, & the rest of the world. I went back to Texas, graduated with a degree in Criminal Justice, and am now living in Arizona with my hottie boyf, J.

I love the simple things in life & believe in living in the present. I like to travel, whether its "across the pond" or a road trip to the coast. Seeing new things makes me happy. I like to take pictures. A lot of pictures. Of people. Of stuff. Of food. Of life. I am a believer in loud laughs & genuine smiles. I don't take life too seriously; sometimes it gets me into trouble but most of the time it lets me laugh things off & enjoy life as much as possible. I don't like chocolate or the rain but I love a glass of my favorite wine, a good movie & painting, even though I'm still a beginner. I was born & raised in the great state of AZ and am a 2nd generation native (pretty uncommon around here). I graduated from TCU in May 2013 with a Criminal Justice Degree (Go Frogs!) & plan to go to law school in a year or two!
