24 Hours in Washington, D.C.

24 hours in Washington DC, Family Trips, Vacation with One Child, Single Parent VacationA while back I had to make a quick trip to D.C. for work. I took the oldest with me for a short overnight trip. We arrived on a Sunday afternoon; most of the stores were closing by the time we arrived, with us leaving early the next day we didn’t have any opportunities to check out landmarks, but we did walk around Georgetown.

The drive up was pretty hectic, traffic, traffic and more traffic. But we eventually made it and even stopped along the way for a few pictures.

We headed to Red Top Mountain Easter weekend for a quick getaway. It was so peaceful and absolutely wonderful!

Michael Jackson Almost Got Me Fired From Disney World & Other Tips To Survive Disney During The Summer

I’ll never forget the summer of 2003. Between the excitement of Finding Nemo and Pirates of the Caribbean opening, and my completing an internship at Disney, I didn’t think things could get any better as a 19-year-old college student. That was until one (predictable) summer semi-rainy Florida afternoon.  I saw the king of pop himself at Disney, and guess what? He almost got me fired from my job there. But more on that later.  Read more

We had an amazing time down in Charleston, SC this past weekend, what made it even more amazing was the Coastal Crust mobile eatery. The owners use a restored 1950’s pick up truck, complete with a wood fire oven, to bring you the most incredible pizza you could ever imagine.

If you are ever in the Mt. Pleasant area, be on the lookout for the truck! I gaurantee you won’t regret it. In the mean time, be sure to check out their menu here.

New Adventures

Boston Photography, Lifestyle Blog, New England Living

 

After a very busy Memorial Day weekend, I decided to take a little time to reflect over the last six months since moving here in New England.

We have been very blessed with the opportunity to expose our children to new areas, cultures and aspects of life. Certain things, that as children my husband and I didn’t have access to.

With it’s rich history and iconic American landmarks within an hours drive, living here has afforded us the opportunity to explore parts of the country we never thought we would see.

I’m looking forward to visiting the Cape and Martha’s Vineyard this summer!

Here’s to a great summer!
