Domestic Travel: The Best “Bier” in Charleston – Bay Street Biergarten Review

I was compensated by Bay Street Biergarten with a restaurant gift card in exchange for an honest review. As always, all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own. 


My husband, John, and I recently traveled to Charleston to celebrate our five year anniversary! If you read my recap you probably noticed that we did a lot of eating and drinking. We just kept hopping from restaurant to restaurant because everything was so delicious and unique. One place that we particularly enjoyed was Bay Street Biergarten! Continue reading

Domestic Travel: Charleston Anniversary Trip Recap


We decided about a year ago that we wanted to take an anniversary trip since this year marked five years of marriage! We decided between international, tropical, local (we live in the coolest area and never take advantage of it), or elsewhere. We ended up picking Charleston, South Carolina – not international, kind of tropical (hello palm trees!), and not local, yet close enough to pretty easily drive there. Continue reading

Navigating the Airport Alone with a Toddler


I received the product mentioned in this post in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts & opinions are 100% my own.

Recently my almost two year old and I traveled from Virginia Beach, Virginia to Denver, Colorado with a layover in Newark, New Jersey (going there and coming back). This was her first time on a plane (aside from when she was in the womb haha) so there were lots of unknowns!

I was optimistic that everything would go well because Continue reading

24 hours in Ontario – In & Around Niagara

Every year my great aunt hosts a family reunion at her {near} Rochester, New York home. My mom and I have been in the past and we always talk about how close Canada is! Our family has made the trip to the U.S. side of Niagara Falls (which for those who don’t know, it’s right at the border of the U.S. and Canada) but we’ve never actually done any exploring right across the border in Ontario, Canada. We decided this trip we would extend a bit longer than normal and visit Canada right smack in the middle Continue reading

Have Blog, Will Travel

I’m so excited to be adding a part of my life that’s so, so special and important to me and quite frankly I can’t believe has never been part of this blog before!

If you follow me on social media you know I talk about traveling being a passion of mine. If you know me personally you know I have a slight obsession! We have traveled little to not at all since our daughter was born (August 2015). I always just knew that she’d be jet setting at an early age but life’s been a bit chaotic in not the best ways the past year or so and it’s just been something that’s been put on the back burner.

But no more! Traveling is a hobby of mine and is something I thoroughly enjoy. It truly rejuvenates my soul. And even if it’s a small trip somewhere here in Virginia, I intend to be doing a lot more of it soon.

Every six months or so Continue reading
