I am starting my last year of graduate school, which is why I have been pretty much radio silent on this poor blog. (Thank you research papers). I will make a trip to Phoenix in two weeks and then on to the Philippines in December with my mother. I will post about both trips. I will also write-up a post about my trip to NOLA last May 2016. Gosh, I am so far behind! I look forward to finishing school next may and doing lots more traveling and eating (and drinking!) in the future.
