Hi! My name is Jenna and I’m a (almost) 30-something living in Dallas with my husband and small herd of animals.  I grew up in Wisconsin and went to college in Minnesota but took the first opportunity to move out of the cold and to the welcoming warm arms of Texas.

Writing, history and travel have always held a special place in my heart and this site is my place to focus on all three of those and the places where they intersect.  When I have a trip booked I count down the days and make them come faster by consuming everything I can about the history of where I’ll be.  My vacations tend to be full on site-seeing tours from dawn till dusk despite my husband’s protests that he’d rather be sitting at the beach sipping a margarita.

Writing about these experiences and what informs them is something I’ve left to my journals in the past but I now share with the world.  If I can help you learn one thing about someplace you’ve never been I will be happy with that so please tag along with me!
