you're on 

I'm an adventurous introvert from Vancouver, Washington who lives on sleep + "me time." I'm a lover of lifting weights, dinosaurs, real talk and traveling with my husband. I am here to help you move better, lift more, bust the myths of the fitness industry, and inspire you to love the process.

Hey you,

The name's Annie & you're reading my thoughts. Let's get acquainted.

Boulder, Colorado had been on my US travel list for quite some time before we finally made the trek. We’d likely never had made a specific trip to Boulder but ended up driving through after picking up a truck we had built in Michigan. While many people come to Colorado for extreme and outdoor sports, […]

Annie Mller in Boulder, CO

Chicago far exceeded my expectations – it’s a truly special city. We had purchased a truck that was being manufactured in Michigan, so we make the trip to Chicago as a little pitstop. And frankly, it was perfection. This post is a mash up, but pretty jam-packed with what we would suggest you do in […]

Leavenworth is a German town at the base of the Alpine region known as the Enchantments in Washington State. We’ve been many times before, but never in February. It’s a shoulder season in the town for sure. The holiday craze is over, but it’s not quite spring. That is a fantastic thing if you’re looking […]

Visiting Leavenworth, WA in February with Annie Miller

I read that Lake Chelan is Washington’s hidden gem recently. While we do think it’s a gem, it’s certainly not hidden. Many Washitonians and visitors from other states come during all seasons to experience all that Chelan has to offer. It’s only 1 hour from Leavenworth and 2.5 hours east of Seattle. That’s wildly “out […]

Lake Chelan WA in February with Annie Miller

If you looking for something between the influencer vibe of Tulum, and the over touristic Cancún, Playa Del Carmen MIGHT be for you. I say MIGHT for a reason. We chose Playa Del Carmen because Cancún is just a tad too touristy for us, and I just can’t with what I’ve seen of Tulum – […]

Honest guide to Playa Del Carmen Mexico with Annie Miller

We heard about Oaxaca on our first trip to Mexico City in 2020 but we didn’t have enough time to make a pit stop. So when we planned our month long return to Mexico in 2021, Oaxaca was a must. It’s a bright, European influenced city that has some of the best food on planet […]

Mexico City is one of our favorite cities in the world – largely due to the food, people, and culture. You could visit 10 times and have new experiences on each occasion. We’ve been twice, for a total of 5 weeks, and can’t say enough fabulous things about this city. If the Millers could scream […]

Lessons I have learned through world travel I have had several conversations as of late where someone has brought up something and I’ve said that “I learned that via world travels.” Or that world travels made something clear to me that this person had mentioned in a conversation. So it made me think why not […]

Lessons from 500 days of world travel with Annie Miller

Dallas was our starting and ending point for a three week road trip through Texas in December. Thus, my first note is that Dallas is COLD in relation to other areas of Texas this time of year. Pack layers, and prepare for 30-65 degree weather. 3-7 days would be plenty here, depending on what it […]

San Antonio is largely a suburb but it has no shortage of character. There are definitely a few must do’s and see’s. And that’s what I plan to give you today, in this post. A central location to San Antonio is the River Walk. And we suggest you either stay near this, or in “south […]
