For those of you who don't know, I was born and raised in Syracuse, New York until the age of 11. My parents have an insane amount of siblings and cousins that mostly still live in the surrounding areas of upstate New York, and we would go up at least once or twice a year after we moved for holidays and vacations in the summer. My parents have an old cabin
And that's a wrap, folks! I honestly cannot believe September is about to be over. Where has 2018 gone?!??! It's basically Halloween, which is practically Christmas. So realistically, it's already 2019, and I cannot even handle it.

The past couple of days have been lovely. I haven't seen the families I met my first weekend since it's back to school for their kidS, but we have been making plans for this weekend. Meanwhile,
Ok, so we are a few days into my new life in Vietnam. I arrived on Friday. Fast forward to Sunday, which was an insanely packed day for me!
