Hello Everyone,

Welcome to my blog.

I'm Katherine: a mother loving foodie, wife to an amazing husband, nature-loving tree hugger, road trippin photographer, dog-lovin hippie, Disneyland Mouseketeer, & Reno's #1 fan.

I aim to connect Reno residents, families, visitors, and tourists to useful information through firsthand experiences to help them live their best lives.

Reno and its surrounding areas have so much going on and I'm here to help make sense of it all, filtering out the best experiences, attractions, venues, restaurants, things to do, nearby destinations, and more.
