Our visit to Watkins Glen State Park

Watkins Glen State Park

Our time in New York was pretty short and busy, but we wanted to fit in as much as possible. Our second day there we woke up at 5:30am and headed toward the finger lakes. They were about 2.5 hours away and we needed to be back in Buffalo for a dinner at 6pm.  But I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to see Watkins Glen. It …

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 …

The perfect vacation outfit for Mexico

  When I realized I was going to Mexico for vacation, I knew I wanted clothes I would be comfortable in all day long. I could stay cool during a long day of activities, but could also wear it to a nice dinner that night. I came across Faithfull on Instagram and immediately fell in love. I seriously wanted to buy every item on their site! Plus, I …

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 …

Especially during the holidays when everything is decorated and beautiful. This was our second year making a trip to the Grove Park Inn to enjoy Sunday brunch with Colin’s parents. It …

China | Beijing and Shanghai!

While planning for our next big trip. I realized I never shared photos from my trip to China! I must say this was not a trip we were planning to take. I jokingly sent a Groupon link to my boyfriend, Colin, about how cheap it would be to travel to China for 2 weeks. Then, that weekend we couldn’t decide if we really wanted to …

Amsterdam!!

^^ The truffle goat cheese is a must! Our hotel was so cute! If I ever go back, I would stay here again! On our way to Prague, we decided to stop in Amsterdam for a night. I am so glad we did and so sad we didn’t get to stay longer! Since this was my mom’s first time in Europe and we didn’t have …

Biltmore

Last week we went up to the Biltmore estate to experience the candlelight tour. I have visited to the Biltmore a couple of times in the past year and I still enjoy walking the house and grounds. I must admit I was a bit disappointed when it wasn’t an actually candlelight tour (most of the rooms were lit with more than just candlelight). However, the Biltmore …
