A New England Photo Essay

1 week ago

{by alicia} For my husband's birthday, we took a road trip from Columbus to New England. It was a week of sightseeing, eating, and, uh, driving, but we managed to do a lot in a short amount of time! Philadelphia isn't really New England, but we used it as a halfway point. I've been plotting to find an excuse to hit up Philly for awhile,[...]

Surf Lesson in Honolulu

{by alexis} Guys, I'm back! We passed ten or so days in Hawaii, and it was truly the trip of a lifetime. We spent most of our time in Kauai, but I'll be sharing that with you in the future.

Dragoon’s Punch

{by alexis} I miss a lot of things about our vacation in the South: the breeze from the rivers, the historical homes, the grits -- but more than anything else, I miss a strictly observed daily happy hour. I know I haven't posted about Charleston yet (it's coming!), but my absolute favorite new discovery came from Husk. There's a lot of buzz about Husk, but[...]

{by alexis} Orlando doesn't initially strike me as a town for folks who love eating, but I'm happy to report that we wound up pleasantly surprised. Joe had to head down to Florida for a conference, so naturally I tagged along for a few days in the sun. I wasn't sure where to start on research, so I reached out to a local Orlando blogger[...]
