Hey, I’m Kiersten! 

Welcome to my little spot of the web where I like to share my love for adventuring as well as me and Ryan’s life together. I‘m so glad to have you here!

I am passionate about living each day to its fullest.

This passion I have for life has made me love to travel and adventure.


1a :  an undertaking usually involving danger and unknown risksb :  the encountering of risks <the spirit of adventure>

2:  an exciting or remarkable experience <an adventure in exotic dining>

3:  an enterprise involving financial risk

Traveling sets my soul on fire. Ever since I was a young girl, I was thrilled and amused by the astonishing adventures the world has to offer. I am curious about slightly dangerous endeavores such as cliff jumping and sky diving (which I have yet to check off my bucket list), but my adventurous spirit is most amused by encountering the world. The world is an astonishing place, and we only have so much time here to explore this magical home we call earth. The fact that I will never be able to encounter all of the amazing creations on this earth by both God and man honestly saddens me. Thus, I aspire to travel to as many countries, ascend as many mountains, and hear as many waves crash onto shore as humanly possible.

As you can probably tell, traveling is a passion of mine, and I greatly enjoy experiencing the world as much as I can through travel- whether travel means 30 minutes or 30 hours away. I’ve realized while I can’t travel to far off destinations full-time, I can turn many moments into an adventure, whether near or far, & I love to document those adventures here. I also enjoy documenting about my journeys in various other aspects of my life. These include fitness, shopping, family and friends, self-improvement, and Jesus Christ.

Living life to its fullest makes me strive to become a little better each day. Follow my journey each week as I adventure, learn, and grow, and hopefully inspire you to do the same.

Kiersten and Ryan, Ryan and Kiersten

Ryan and I met in high school- my sophomore year, his freshman year. (Yes, I’m a cougar :P) We are high school sweethearts & newly weds from the southern United States, but we are currently out in the wild west exploring Utah. To read more of our story, check out our very first blog post here.

Some hobbies we enjoy together include: traveling, hiking, skiing, camping (well, he’s trying to convince me), eating good food, and watching This Is Us.

We are both students; Ryan is an undergraduate student studying neuroscience, and I am a graduate MPH student! We will hopefully both enter the medical field one day. I want to become a PA, and Ryan wants to become a doctor.

We have a dog named Aspen. She’s a spunky and cuddley black golden doodle and we love her very much!

Welcome to OUR life together!

I hope this blog inspires you to live each day to your fullest, become your best self, and informs you of adventures you can experience too.
