I'm Ally, a West Texas native who grew up in the middle of nowhere and now makes a habit of going just about anywhere. Whether it's on a weekend road trip or that favorite hometown coffee shop, I've got my planner with me. I'm an avid Wikipedia nut, so don't tempt me with something kooky, cool, old, or unique that I'm unfamiliar with. If every day isn't an adventure, you're not paying close enough attention. And when all else fails, grab another cup of coffee and improve the world around you. (Yes, even if it means that crazy art project takes over your dining room.)
