Goodbye Belling-Home

Bellingham Homes

I’ve decided home is definitely not where your heart is.  Home must be what time zone you keep your watch in?  My watch says, ‘Hawaii,’ but I don’t want to go back there right now, so that must not be home either.  So… home is where you and your most immediate suitcase possessions reside?  Yeah.  That sounds better.  This is #mylifeinabag.  So representative of a gypsy-traveler; the story of my flight attendant life.

Today marks the last day of a month living in a hotel in Bellingham, Washington.  It’s been a combination of wonderful, difficult, hilariously fun, and dramatically sad.  I’m not going to go into detail, but as always, this life is never boring.  Here is the month, the stories told through the photos and video compiled over the last 30 days.  Enjoy!


 This is moving in

Travel Quote

My life is a project of seeing the good in places, no matter where I am sent, no matter where I live.  Of appreciating the beautiful in myself, and not begging to be someone else.  I’m on a search to find that which I was meant to do; a process of discovering who I am, and who I am meant to become.  

World Travelers

Gypsy Friends & The Surprises of life.  Samiul lives in Vancouver.  We met in Thailand in December, and reunited in Bham!  He was living in Australia for a couple of months, and brought me a Koala Bear friend.  

San Juan Island

Dorie & I took the ferry to San Juan Island.  We rented a scooter and spent a day exploring.  Beautiful weather.  Beautiful fun!

Insanity Body

All month, every day, Dorie & I woke up and did an intense workout.  Just goes to show flight attendants can make consistency in their lives.

Used Bookstore Bellingham

The used bookstores in Bellingham are wonderful.  Smells like dust and paper pages….perfect.  Dorie’s heaven.

Canadian Hotties

Taylor & Jay are my favorite Canadian hotties.  I met Jay’s parents on a Hawaii flight months ago.  They said I had to meet their firefighter son, and that we would get along.  It’s always nice when you are pre-approved by parents:)  

Seattle Public Market

Dorie & I took a day trip to Seattle, going to The Fish Market and Chihuly Garden & Glass.  We ate the best pizza in the city.  I always have fun with that girl!

Kara Flight Attendant

Touring the firehouse was probably my favorite adventure of Bellingham.  I wasn’t expecting my 5-year old silly self to come out in full force, and gosh, it was fun!  Sometimes, I have these moments where I don’t even know what I’m going to do next.  I love that.  Love that:)


Bellingham Bay

Beautiful Bellingham


We made some new flight attendant friends.

Tinder Dating 

And then the life of gypsy dating.  There’s a story to this one and it needs to be written about.  It’s practically Lamborghini good:)
