About Me

Hi everyone! My name is Melissa. I live in Upstate New York with my awesome boyfriend.

I love learning! I have a Master of Science in Healthcare Administration, I love healthcare because not only is it helping people but it’s always changing so the job is never the same and never boring. 

I love hanging out with friends and family, traveling, hiking, going to concerts, reading, running, watching movies and biking. This blog will touch mainly on two very important things in my life — my adventures and what I’ve been reading as well as the people who experience those things with me.

Occasionally you might get a more personal post related to my life but on the whole, I want this to be a place where people can come to to read about some adventures I’ve gone on both in my home state of New York and in other locations. At the same time (because my wallet can’t handle an adventure all the time), book lovers will be able to come here and read about all the amazing or maybe not so amazing books I’ve been reading and what I think of them.


For awhile I couldn’t find a good balance between my work life – social life – and reading life. I finally found it! My job requires a round trip travel time (on a bus) of ~1.5hours daily so I get a lot of reading done!

My main reason for reading is because it let’s me experience a life/location/time period that I won’t ever experience. It also helps give me a break from reality for a little while and maybe just maybe help me choose my next adventure! Travel has become a big part of who I am, I want to experience as much as possible while I can and mixing the two together has been a great experience.

Hopefully both themes will help you either pick up a book or visit the places I’ve gone. I really want to show how there can be a life balance between all things you love in your life as well as meet lovely bloggers who are also passionate about what they do.

Thank you for stopping by 😊
