About

Welcome, I'm Megan. I grew up in Southern California but have called Sacramento home for most of my adult life. From nine to five I work for a non-profit organization I love and in my evenings and weekends, I focus on exploring new places, foods, books, and more. And I hope to share those adventures, the tips, and tricks I've learned with all of you.
