Christmas Playlist

These Christmas-Themed posts are getting me into the spirit one post at a time! Every year I fall in love with Christmas music all over again, there is just something that feels good about listening to it in the car, as the snow on the roads starts to pile up. Here are some of my…

Mushy Thankful post

Thursday November 24th was Thanksgiving here in the United States, and while I got ready to greet all of the guests that would descend upon my home, I thought about what I was thankful for. As a lot of people do every year. I know I have been writing more list-posts than usual, but I…

An afternoon in Savannah

The last of my vacation posts has sadly arrived. You may have read multiple posts about my travels in the southern United States in Charleston, South Carolina, Asheville, North Carolina and now we’re going to talk about Savannah Georgia. One of the warmest cities I have been to, I thought it would be perfect to…

Where Will Life Take You?

I’m not really sure how to start out this post. So sit back, grab a cup of your favorite warm beverage, (I’ll have a chai tea) your favorite snack, relax because it’s time for a little story. I promise it won’t be too long.  9 years ago in 2007 (yikes that’s a lot.) students in…

Doors of Charleston

Walking along the narrow streets of Charleston, South Carolina it’s easy to see how different and unique every house is. Aside from street numbers, almost every house has a different door color. For some reason, I said “I really like doors” and the entire time we were in Charleston everyone pointed out different doors for…

Secret Gardens

There is literally adventure around every corner in Charleston, South Carolina. Five years ago, my family took a trip to visit the city and were there for about three days. We were lucky enough to have a guide that took us exploring the pedestrian alley ways that Charleston has to offer. There are so many…

Brewing in the Mountains

I love exploring. (You probably guessed that). I love tagging along just to see what something is like. Being in different places means there are a lot of different things to see, my step-dad really loves breweries. I tagged along (mostly because I didn’t want to just sit in the hotel room).  There are so…

Biltmore Estate

I love looking at beautiful landscape, big homes and thinking about the history behind it. While I was in Asheville, we visited the Biltmore Estate. The estate was built by the Vanderbilts and is surrounded with beautiful gardens and distant mountains. It is so beautiful.  Our first walk around the estate was in the gardens,…

Crab Salad

Summer is in full swing here in Wisconsin, and if you’re anything like me, yours is full of events that involve eating delicious food. July is probably the busiest summer month, and my favorite time of the year.  If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile, you know that my parents have a Fourth of…

Wicked Weed: Asheville

Time goes by so quickly, it actually blows my mind. Just last month I was in Asheville, North Carolina sitting in the warmth of the beginning of the summer with the idea of 12 more days of vacation ahead. One of the first places my family and I ate at in Asheville was called Wicked…
