Gilbert the puggle
Within two minutes of arriving at my sister’s place I was getting crawled all over by a puggle and a four year old.

“Do i get one more?” Dylan, after every present he opened.

Dylan loves the map I bought him
I cried when Dylan carried around the world map I gave him (so my sister can show him wherever I am) and kept asking questions and making me hold it open for him. I laughed when he said “I’m from here,” and pointed to Libya.

Hi, I'm Val. I spent most of my 20s in a standstill, unable to pick which path in life I wanted to take. I wanted the nomadic life of a traveler but also wanted the husband, the condo, and the kitten. Unable to decide which life I wanted more, I did nothing. When I turned 30 I’d had enough of putting my life on hold and decided to start “choosing my figs.” So, I quit my job, bought a one-way ticket to Europe, and traveled for three years. Now I'm back in Chicago, decorating my apartment in all the teal, petting my cats, and planning my next adventure.
