I recently spent the weekend in Hokkaido (Sapporo, Otaru, and Asahiyama Zoo) with my little monster.

Here’s how it all went down.
It’s almost September and cooler temperatures are sneaking up on us (finally!). And while I’m definitely looking forward to pairing lots of delicious savory foods with sweet and hot drinks, I’m also looking forward to completing the rest of my 18 professional and personal goals for 2018.
