Our Trip to the Florida Springs

Right before I fell into the water You can’t really tell, but the water below me is about 15 feet deep. Devil’s eye   A few weeks ago, Colin and I both took a Friday off and decided to head to a place we’ve been wanting to visit for awhile, the Florida Springs. We left after work on Thursday and headed down to the middle of …

Home tour | A look around our townhouse

home_decor

We’ve been in our new place almost a year and our lease is coming to an end. I never officially shared a tour of our place yet, so I thought now was a perfect time to do so on the blog. We decided to move from an apartment to a townhouse for more freedom in the renting world. What really appealed to us here is the open …

Hiking from Boca de Tomatlan to Las Animas – Day 2

Before going to Puerto Vallarta I did a lot of searching to find activities to do outside the city. Puerto Vallarta is definitely a resort city full of retirees, so finding something low key was pretty hard. I found a good bit of reviews and posts about a hike from Boca to Animas. Mostly, all the post were from 2014 and not the most up …

The great winter storm

coffee is always a must on snow days! We don’t have many snow storms in the south, so when Colin and I found out we were going to have one we had to go to the mountains. We left Friday after work and drove to the cabin. It didn’t start snowing until we were 20 minutes away and it really started to come down. There …

Here’s to 2017!!

After looking through pictures from 2016, i’ve realized all the things I forgot happen during the year. I found myself saying “that was this year?!?” multiple times.  Besides all the unfortunate events that happen this year, I found 2016 to be one of my most successful. Even though I created my blog at the end of 2015, I became more engaged and decided to stick …

Christmas 2016

I cannot believe Christmas has passed already! This year Colin and I spent Christmas morning in Charleston with his family. Colin’s family is huge compared to mine, so it can be a bit hectic at times. However, I always enjoy getting together with his family, it’s like a small reunion because they all live allover and are very different from each other. The first night …

Rose Gold Christmas

  This is my first year being able to really decorate for Christmas. Last year, we had a tree in our apartment but that’s about it! This year we don’t live in a small apartment and have room to decorate. I went with a rose gold silver theme, since our tree was mostly silver from last year and I didn’t want to buy all new …
