Hiking the Kalalau Trail on Kauai

{by alexis} We've been back for about two weeks now, and I've been having almost as much fun combing through our photos as I did when we were actually in Hawaii. Okay, that's a lie. (more…)

Surf Lesson in Honolulu

3 months ago

{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. For now, I want to tell you about surfing. No, really -- we had a surf lesson in Honolulu! The Honolulu visitor's bureau connected me[...]

A Day in Grapevine, Texas

5 months ago

{by alicia} You all know I love to travel. But. BUT. I'm not a fan of traveling for work. Seeing there's no avoiding it; I've become a master at grabbing any opportunities to enjoy my surroundings outside of a conference center. (more…)

Edinburgh and Stirling Castle

6 months ago

{by alexis} I've been home from Scotland for a few weeks now, and I'm still going through our pictures. There are folders and folders of images from our trip. Some are garbage, some are only delightful to us, and others are just absolute magic. I'm going to try to share a few of the latter with you here, as well as a few tips for[...]

Scotland Packing List

7 months ago

{by alexis} Today's the day! I'm boarding a jet plane tonight that will take me to the land of lochs, castles, and fairies, and I couldn't be more excited! I've been busy over the past few weeks preparing for a jam-packed jaunt around the northern tip of the UK, and I just managed to fit it all in my suitcase. With highs in the mid[...]

Dragoon’s Punch

11 months ago

{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[...]

This year is a bit of a milestone -- I'm turning thirty! -- so I have an even better excuse to peer pressure Joe into all kinds of fun! For our first installment of celebration, we're heading South!

If You’re Going to Playa Flamingo

1 year ago

{by alicia} I've been meaning to do a post on Costa Rica for years, but it never quite panned out. To be honest, it's a little tricky for me. People expect me to be an expert on the entire country because I'm married to a Tico and have been there a zillion times (um, I probably should be an expert by now). Here's the thing: My[...]

Eating in Orlando

1 year ago

{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[...]

How to do Christmas at Disney World

1 year ago

{by alicia} With Alexis heading to Orlando this weekend, it only feels appropriate to dispense the rest of my advice in planning a visit to Walt Disney World at Christmas. This might sound crazy, but with 10 months to go, now's as good a time as any to plan for the 2016 holiday season. Take it from me--without proper planning at least six months in[...]

A Trip to Gatlinburg

2 years ago

{by: alicia} Is there such a thing as having too much fun on a trip? You're probably over there going "No, you lunatic, that's the point," but my broken cell phone says otherwise. Maybe it was all the moonshine and beer flights (it was definitely those things) that caused my iPhone's demise, but these things happen, and there's no need to panic. That is, until you remember a majority[...]
