It is officially summer feeling here, the weather is hot and it doesn’t rain as much, so I am starting to prep for some summer fun. While yes I do work a typical 9-5 job during the work week, I can still make fun plans for weekends and even the occasional small trip. I thought I would share some of the fun things Krista and I have planned while to start this week off.

Since I’m pretty sure everyone loves dogs and especially rescue dogs, I thought I would give y’all an update on Harley, the most recent addition to our family. If you haven’t seen the first article I did, you can give it a read, but as a quick recap Krista and I rescued a dog from a kill shelter in North Carolina and her name is Harley. She has been adjusting to her new life and I thought I’d share some of the strides she has made.

Today I reveal that the road trip I mentioned on Friday has already happened. This past weekend Krista and I drove, she literally did all of the driving so I was just along for the ride, to Pennsylvania. Now we had sort of vaguely planned this trip before. Krista went to law school in Carlisle and she wanted to show me the sights, but as it turned out this trip involved something a little extra.

Krista and I are planning a road trip for the not to distant future and I thought I would share some of the things we always pack on long drives. I also wanted to give folks a chance to share things that they think are a must have for a trip. You can think for either a road trip or any sort of multi-hour trip so if you have thoughts share away in the comments.

Today is National Rescue Dog Day and I wanted to celebrate some of my favorite rescue pups. I grew up not really having pets, we randomly got fish when I was in high school and then as I was headed off to grad school my folks adopted a dog. I spent some time with him before the move and then when I later moved home he and I would hang out. Now that I am moved and married I have my own animal family members, most of which are rescues and deserve some praise.

Today I have finally determined that I actually have writer’s block. This honestly seems baffling to me since I don’t do a ton of truly creative writing on The Nerdy Girl Express, but I still feel like it has set in. I though am unsure what to do with this knowledge.

This is just a brief little article to let readers know that I will be taking a bit of a break. With the holidays kicking into high gear and some articles that need to be released in the new year … Continue reading Taking a Bit of a Holiday Break from @kleffnotes
The title for this article took me way longer to figure out and I still don’t entirely like it. Krista and I have been together for 3 years as of today, but we have hit our first year of marriage. … Continue reading The Bi Line: Our First Marriage Anniversary from @kleffnotes
I had never been a person who was that invested in weddings. Admittedly I never even thought I would get married, which was supported by more than one toast connected to my recent marriage to my now wife Krista. This means that I never really had a dream plan for a wedding or had ever really thought about the ins and outs of a wedding before. I also hadn’t thought about what might be different for planning a wedding where two women are getting married instead of the heteronormative default. I thought I would share some of the things that I didn’t think about and then had to deal with during wedding planning for those who might not have thought about some of the odd quirks that might pop up for you or for people you know.
