Captiva Island, Florida

My family recently visited Captiva Island, Florida. Captiva Island is a barrier island located in southwest Florida just north of Sanibel and off the coast of Fort Myers and was truly one of the most magical family trips we’ve enjoyed in a while. When my family was discussing where we’d like to visit this summer, the list […]

Blackberry Farm

One of the places I’ve wanted to visit for some time now is Blackberry Farm. Located about 25 minutes from the Knoxville, Tennessee airport, it is situated on over 4,000 acres in the rolling foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains and surrounded by lush landscape of national forest and beautiful countryside. My husband and I visited […]

Colonial Williamsburg Artisans

  One of my favorite things about visiting Colonial Williamsburg is the sheer number of artisans. From carpenters, bakers, calligraphers, cabinet makers, blacksmiths, to gardeners. Each has a special skill they proudly show to visitors who stop by to see them while touring. The calligrapher shows you how your name would have been properly written […]

Colonial Williamsburg

  We recently visited Colonial Williamsburg in Virginia for a couple of days and spent as much time as we possibly could in touring the area. The architecture, gardens, and craftsmanship from this time in our history is absolutely one of my favorites. The Governor’s Palace sits at one end of the property looking out […]

Disney’s Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party

A few weeks ago, my family celebrated my son’s birthday with a trip to Walt Disney World. Luckily, they were just beginning the Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party […]

Idaho :: Gorgeous in Every Way

        We visited the beautiful state of Idaho for the first time earlier this summer. I was immediately captivated by the beautiful landscape, friendly people, and lack of humidity! And just in case you were wondering, a lack of humidity is always impressive to a girl from Georgia during the summertime.   […]

Crater of Diamonds

My family loves to pack up our RV and hit the road on an adventure to see parts of America we’ve not yet seen and show our son many of our favorite areas of the US. Some of our trips we plan for months, even a year in advance, while others we just decide to […]

National Parks: A Treasure

Our national parks are such an amazing treasure that my family always enjoys exploring when we travel. Whenever we are planning a trip, I visit the National Parks Service website to help plan our itinerary for visits to lighthouses, forts, presidential libraries, as well as the national parks.   For years, we’ve visited as many […]

What My Guys Are Up To

While I am attending session after session and learning so many things about blogging at the Savvy Blogging Summit, my guys are exploring Breckenridge in grand style. In the middle of one of my sessions today, my husband sends me this picture. It was awfully hard to concentrate after that. I could just imagine being […]
