If you missed our Iceland video and big family announcement, it’s posted here! This post is all about Reykjavik, Iceland’s capital and only actual city. It’s quaint, charming and wonderfully friendly. When we were there, it was freezing (as you can see from photos), but so worth the visit and we’d happily go back again. Here are a few of my recommendations on places to stay, things to do and restaurants. Continue reading
We finally got around to posting our video from our Iceland adventures. We waited to post it for a very special reason….but you’ll have to watch all the way to the end of the video in order to see what we have to say. I promise to post photos and recommendations from our Iceland trip soon, but in the meantime, enjoy my all time favorite travel video!!
Happy June! Summertime is upon us, so I thought I’d share my top 5 favorite summer trends. I love trends, but I also love classic pieces that you’ll get to use season after season. So, I’d say I tend to follow the trends that I think might stick around for a bit. But at the end of the day, you’ve just got to choose pieces for your closet that you love and feel comfortable wearing. If you like bright colors but the trend is to wear white, then wear your colors boldly and with confidence. I think clothes are great and all, but it’s always more about clothes just complimenting the person that you already are on the inside.
One Piece Suits
Okay, I mean, we’ve all seen this video of the moms who expressed all of our thoughts on swim suit season. If you haven’t seen it, just watch it now. You’ll thank me later. With that being said, I love this solid one piece swim suit trend and I hope it stays.
Hi everyone! I haven’t been on the blog lately with finishing up the school year and a couple of other weekend trips. I always say things will slow down, but they never do. 😉 Here’s the last of our Ireland photos! Before we left Ireland to head to Ireland, we decided to take a tour from Dublin to the Cliffs of Moher and Galway City. We did our tour through Wild Rover Tours. If you don’t have enough time to rent a car and drive around Ireland, these day trips are wonderful. I love them because someone else does all the work and you just enjoy your day. Hope you enjoy our last few photos…can’t wait to share our Iceland travel tips and photos!
Our Ireland Spring Break trip was such a sweet time and we loved everything about this country. The people were nice, the food was yummy, the streets were charming and the countryside even more beautiful. As with all of our trips, we always try to make a video documenting our adventures because I think it’s a really fun way to keep your memories. Hope you enjoyed Part I of our Ireland trip and stay tuned for photos of our Galway City and Cliffs of Moher day!
Meanwhile, here’s a video of our Ireland adventures!
Over spring break, Matt and I had our first WOW Air experience and ventured back to Europe! We went to Dublin, Ireland and Reykjavik, Iceland. We absolutely adored both. I thought I’d start by sharing photos from our time in Dublin and we’ll definitely be posting a video in a few weeks, as well. Here are a few tips about where we stayed, places to eat and other recommendations. Hope enjoy our tips and our first batch of photos! Stay tuned for more photos about our time in Galway City and visiting the Cliffs of Moher.
Where we stayed: We stayed at the Brooks Hotel, Dublin for three days. I would highly recommend this one, because it’s an amazing location and close to everything you want to do in Dublin. The staff were all super helpful, rooms were big especially by European standards and they even let us borrow an umbrella. (For reals, bring rain gear to Ireland haha). I’ve mentioned this before, but we are huge believers in travel as one of the best ways to spend our money and we also love the Chase credit card points system. We fund a lot of trips this way!
Over the long weekend, I went to Pensacola to visit one of my best friends and her sweet daughter. There’s something so precious about friendships that stand the test of time, distance and various life stages. Lucius Annaeus Seneca once said, “One of the most beautiful qualities of true friendship is to understand and to be understood.” I can’t think of a better way to sum up friendship and the joys it brings.
Enjoy a few photos of our time together! Also, how pretty are these Florida beaches!? My home state sure is a pretty one. Surprisingly, this was my first real trip to Pensacola and I thought it was a really cute town. I liked the diversity, things to do and pretty Florida scenes everywhere we looked. Continue reading
Over the last month, we’ve been able to explore some of the cities near us and it’s been a lot of fun just to be tourists in our own backyard. I love that we live somewhere with so much history and respect for the things of the past. I absolutely love Roswell and its charming downtown area. They also have some amazing restaurants, shops and outdoor activities. This weekend, we went to the Old Roswell Mill on Vickery Creek. Roswell was founded as a mill town, so the remains of the mill have been converted into a really cool trail. Also, this weekend was so beautiful and I can just feel spring coming our way soon. Hope you enjoy a few photos!
A few weekends ago, we took our visiting family to one of Roswell’s old plantation homes. I don’t know about you, but I’m always up for touring a slightly spooky old home. And Roswell has three of them! Last year, we went to the Smith Plantation and it was so much fun! So this time we went to Barrington Hall, which was the home of the family who founded Roswell. Hope you enjoy a few photos!
Hi friends! I’ve posted before about my packing tips for packing in a backpack, but it was for a warmer weather trip to Italy. This time, I wanted to share some tips on packing for a winter or colder trip in a backpack. I can’t say enough good things about packing in a backpack and how easy it makes travel. Here’s my last post on packing in a backpack and my trip planning tips where I link a few of the items I use for packing. In this post, I’ll show you how to pack for a 7-10 day trip to a colder place and share where you can find a few of my favorite winter travel items.
