come sail away

oh my goodness, i can’t believe that it is less than 2 weeks until we are sailing away. i feel like this vacation could not come at a more perfect time. with the normal busy nature of life, we are so ready to get away and just relax (and maybe get a little sun-kissed too).…

vacation planning begins…

oh man, it’s official…we are fully activated with our hilton grand vacations club membership. to say we are excited is truly one of the biggest understatements of the year. and naturally, being the planner that i am, i’ve already mapped out a few places that we can travel to this year – all documented within…

hello #hgv membership

we are officially hilton grand vacations club members! i know you must be thinking, “what, a timeshare?” i know, it definitely seems a little unconventional for a couple in their late 20s / early 30s but we took the plunge. now, don’t let me fool you…we did not think that we were going to buy…

hello broadway

i can’t help but continually think about our incredible trip to new york city! and wow, did we have some fun which included celebrating our first st. paddy’s day in nyc. thankfully we were able to find a pub, grab a table and enjoy the day! nothing quite says st. paddy’s day like hanging out…

nyc’s wine gem

we are back from the big apple, and man i wish we had more time in the city. i swear, we say that every single time. there is something just so infectious about new york city, and it’s truly one of our favorite places to visit?! and on this trip, we were so excited to…

nyc, here we come

new york, new york…it’s a hell of a town! we are officially going back to the big apple. and this time, we are visiting over the wonderful st. patrick’s day weekend. neither one of us have gone during this time of the year, so we are pretty excited to check out what it’s like over…

dublin: top 5

wow, what an incredible trip. i am so sad that our vacation is already over, but alas it is and back to the normal routine. however, although the trip is over it doesn’t mean that i have forgotten all of the amazing places we visited on our trip. so with that, i am giving you…

an irish adventure

sorry it’s been a few days since i’ve posted. it’s been quite a fun and wonderful adventure the past couple days with flying over to ireland and then taking a grand driving tour around the southern part of the country. now granted, we definitely haven’t seen everything this beautiful country has to offer – but…

winter park staycation

wow, it’s amazing how a staycation can really feel like you are a thousand miles away from home – even in a location where you’ve visited before. and that’s exactly how we felt during our time at the alfond inn at rollins in winter park, florida. this was my first time staying at the property,…
