My Backyard - Hometown

Hi Friends!

The other day I was in the airport leaving my day-and-a-half trip to Vegas, because I work for the coolest company that has an annual company conference in Vegas.  Although I was still an 8 hour drive from Reno, I thought I'd finally make this post I've had in mind for a while.

I constantly see people post pictures on their blog of this magical land called "Tahoe."  They then proceed to talk about where Tahoe is and how beautiful it is.  Every time my comment to those posts is "that's my backyard!!"

I'm from Reno, NV.  Born and raised.

I tell people this and they usually give that, "Gross" look.  It's not gross, unless you go downtown.  Then it's gross.  But Reno is lovely, especially if you're outdoorsy.

So welcome to my Hometown Backyard.

We have Santa Pub Crawls 

We have Wine Walks

We have Balloon Races and Dawn Patrol

We have Night in the Country and amazing sunsets #NoFilter

We have Donner Lake and backyard rock climbing

We have TAHOE


I could go on and had to limit the pictures I used, but Reno really can be a fun city.  Not to mention the Doughboy Donuts rock ANY donut shop here in Portland.


  1. Holy marbles...that is all SO pretty. That sunset? To die for. I want to visit!! :)

  2. I hope you enjoyed your time in Vegas! I have now added Reno to my 'to see' list. It looks like a great time.
    Thanks for sharing your hometown.

  3. Those pics look a lot like Colorado! Love being an outdoorsy girl and being born and raised in beautiful states

  4. ahh this looks so lovely. my good friends went to school in reno and never came back! i really need to go visit her there.

  5. Oh my goodness, I have a cabin in Truckee and am up there all the time.
    I think Reno is great. there are WAY worse places to grow up. You have the best back yard a girl can dream of!

  6. Haha I love Reno. I have family and friends that live there so I've been going there for years. It's pretty funny, people give me the same response too when I tell them going to Reno to visit. I swear I know it like the back of my hand since I've been going there for years. (I'm from the Bay Area)

    Anyways- just found your blog! Love it and your the cutest red head!
