    Our Galtinburg & Knoxville Vacation

    Back in August, we traveled to Gatlinburg for our first vacation together in over two years, and I’m just now getting around to sharing the details. I know, I know, way behind. Our schedules have been crazy ever since we got back and I haven’t been balancing it very well (obviously). I had intended on sharing this blog post shortly after we returned, but honestly time just got away from me. In total, our vacation was five days, spending three days in the Smoky Mountains, hiking and exploring Gatlinburg, and another two days in Knoxville eating good food and enjoying the up and coming city. This was our first time visiting…

    Winona Weekend

    This past weekend, Jake and I took a quick road trip down to Winona to visit his mom and enjoy the beautiful weather. I’d never been down to this city on the bluffs nor had I really ever traveled this far south in Minnesota. It was a short and sweet, one day trip and the weather was perfect – 70 degrees for a high and a bit cooler once the sun went down. We took a walk to Lions Park, did some work, and then spent a few hours hiking and walking the city. We walked through Garvin Heights park which oversees the Mississippi River and is quite picturesque. We found a beautiful…

    Packing for Vancouver | Outfits and Activities

    I’m headed out for Vancouver! Jake and I are once again off to some more traveling – this time in Canada. Vancouver randomly popped into our heads a while back as a place to visit because it has lot to offer – a big city, shopping, the ocean, mountains. We’re really into adventures and exploring when on vacation, as opposed to touristy stuff – though I love at least seeing the touristy stuff when visiting. We planned to take a longer trip than some of our previous trips, a full six days, so packing proved a bit more challenging this time. Outfits  This vacation is the longest we’ve ever taken…

    Los Angeles Outfits & Snacks for Travel

    I’m already packing for my trip! Honestly, I started packing a while ago by getting together a list of items to bring. I wanted to share my outfits I’m bring to Los Angeles for my four day, three night stay. I’m visiting a friend in LA so I’m fortunate in that sense that I’m not stressing too much about forgetting anything. If I forget something, I’m sure I can borrow an item or we can easily pick something up at Target. To help me pack for trips I like to make a list of items I’ll bring. Sometimes I make my own list in Excel, but this time around I…
