Oh my goodness, I don’t even know where to start with this post! I ABSOLUTELY loved this place! Maine has always been high up on my bucket list, but going to Acadia while there just pushed it over the top! What an absolutely stunning place! The reason I even chose Continue reading
Oh my gosh!!!!! I absolutely loved this place! I couldn’t believe how much it reminded me of Europe and how close it was to home!
This is honestly going to be one of my shortest travel posts ever because Continue reading
I have always been one to totally over pack; I’ve actually paid overweight fees on top of checked baggage fees in the past. Gasp! Soooooo unnecessary!
Last year I was dying to go visit Continue reading
If you are ever in upstate New York, you need to make the drive to Watkins Glen State Park! I promise, you will not be disappointed! We were actually staying an hour Continue reading
I’ve taken many short road trips with A, but when I set off for New Jersey from our home state here in Virginia, a few of my friends and family members thought I was crazy.

A few years ago I surprised my mom with a birthday trip to NYC. She had always wanted to both go to the City and see it at Christmastime. This worked out just perfectly since her birthday is in December!
Honestly, I had a pretty tight budget to stick to at the time (hello teacher salary), but I surprisingly had no trouble doing that. Thankfully, I was able to save lots of money on travel because we were able to stay at my aunt’s house in New Jersey and take the train into the city. We kept it at a day trip so we could visit with family while up North! Plus we took one of the earliest trains there and one of the latest train back so we really got in just as much time as we would have had we woken up there!

As many of you know, back in May my one year old daughter and I flew to Continue reading
