Hi! I’m Natalie. I’m closer to 30 than 20. By day, I’m a PR and social media specialist; by night, I’m, well, still a PR and social media specialist since PR isn’t really a 9-5 job. But during my free time/Sunday evenings/day dreams, I love exploring new things in food, travel, and tech. I’m a self-proclaimed geek, Disney-nerd, and movie enthusiast. I’m not an “expert” in anything in particular, but I don’t think you have to be – get out there and explore any adventure you wish!
Any Adventure is a lifestyle and culture blog featuring recipes, book reviews, geek/pop culture news, travel guides, and more. One day I might be experimenting with a new gluten free pie recipe, the next I might be exploring a new town on the Oregon coast, and the next I might be crafting a new cosplay for a local con. You may occasionally catch a glimpse of my husband, Kevin, and our three cats – Soxy, Detective Mittens, and Ali.
I love trying new things and hope to inspire you to do the same. Because every once in awhile, something goes better than expected. Through this blog, I hope to remind myself and others to notice the little unexpected intrusions of beauty in life, and never stop pursuing adventure

As a 3rd degree burn survivor, in addition to permanent scarring of my body it also created a lot of deep emotional scars; it forever changed my appearance and it sent me on a long lasting battlefield within myself and society. And this is where my story begins. My story begins because I have decided to publicly reveal true-self and share my journey in hopes to provide comfort and support to many of you who are dealing with physical and emotional scars. Regardless the size of the scar, emotional or physical, we are all very unique and it affects us differently. It can build us up or tear us down and prevent us from living the life we truly want to live. I hope my blog brings ease and motivation to your journey.

I named my blog Everyday Runaway because I don’t believe you need to quit your job, sell your belongings and live out of a backpack to “runaway” from the mundane, weekly grind of everyday life.

So this site caters to the everyday Joe’s and Jane’s who want to make the most of what they have – be it weeks or simply weekends.
