Welcome to the blog!

About Me!

I'm Maggie, a full-time lobbyist working on Capitol Hill in DC, who always has one foot off the ground, looking for adventure. Which makes sense, since I deal with political nonsense most of the time. So exploring is a passion of mine - exploring the world, my backyard of DC and Virginia, the dark corners of my closet I haven't looked at in awhile. Adventure can be found just about anywhere!

About the Pink Caddy!

When I was growing up, my mom worked as a successful Mary Kay sales director, and as a result I got to be chauffeured in a pink Cadillac for years. Of the duo, I’m the GPS, the academic, the planner. I make sure the logistics are mapped out so that nothing goes wrong. But my mom always ensures that things never go according to plan.
