Hello! We’re Andrew and Meghan. We recently relocated to Davis in Northern California to attend UC Davis for graduate school. Andrew is doing an MBA and a M.A. in Geography and Meghan is working on her PhD in Geography (studying water quality, extreme events, and nonpoint source pollution). Prior to moving to Davis, we lived in the Washington, DC area for about 5 years. We live with our English Bulldog/Boxer, Franklin and our American Bulldog, Winston (both rescue pups), as well as our two Leopard Geckos, Mac and Cheese.
Our blog, Larking Our Way Through Life, was created to track the fun adventures that we take together during this thing called life. We hope you enjoy our stories and trips as much as we do!

Meet Franklin. He was adopted from the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria. He’s an English Bulldog-Boxer mix. He enjoys sleeping, lounging, cuddling, eating cheese, and sleeping more.
Meet Winston. He was also adopted from the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria. He’s an American Bulldog. He enjoys playing tug o’ war with rope toys, digging squeaks and stuffing out of toys, and slobbering on absolutely everything.
