Hi there! I am so glad we found each other. If you haven’t gathered already, my name is Ali. I grew up in a small town in Arizona until age 15 when significant changes came, and our family moved to Hawai’i – which I now consider home.

I live on the island of Oahu, Hawai’i, with my husband and our home of fur babies and plant pets.

I’m an avid lover of all things inspirational. My greatest joys include travel, animal snuggles, crafting, cooking, losing myself in nature, and photographing it all.

In addition to being a book nerd, I’m equally as nerdy about writing. I’m an author of both fiction and non-fiction. Aside from my routine blog publications, you can enjoy my other work in the portfolio tab entitled “Laptop Library.

You will find much of my content is inspired by the beautiful places, people, and experiences I’ve had in all the parts of this world I’ve been lucky enough to place my feet – from North America to Europe and Central America am sharing it all here.

Just as there are infinite books to devour, there is no end to the places we can experience. But even with my big ambitions to travel and share from all over the world, some of my most cherished travel experiences have occurred right here in the United States—some of my favorite trips to share our weekend getaways and road trip itineraries.

It’s not all about travel. Although I have been advised by countless how-to blog guides to stick with one topic and only share that, I just can’t. Like all of yours, my life and interests are far too multi-dimensional to stay in one realm. I consider myself a lifelong learner, and many of the discoveries I make while on my journey of “lifelong learning” I want to share with you.

In 2023 I started a “monthly recap” series where I highlight the goings on in life, 5 favorite things, activities, and general topics worth sharing.

Thank you, 3,000, for being here.

Please feel free to reach out and leave comments. This blog was not solely created as an outlet for my crazy writing brain but as a place to connect and be inspired by one another.
