{Wedding Wednesday} Our Wedding Cruise

This month we hit six months of marriage…I can’t believe how fast the time is flying by. I’m a terrible blogger and never really shared too much of the details of our wedding right away because the months following were a crazy time! But hitting the sixth month mark has me reminiscing about that special weekend! Get ready for picture overload! ­čÖé We got married in January on a 4 Day, 3 night Royal Caribbean cruise. We had over 20 friends and family spend the weekend with us. The wedding itself was pretty low key and we had a blast celebrating all weekend! Day 1 – Port Canaveral The first day we met up with all of our guests on the ship and passed out […]

Favorite Florida Beaches

Living in Orlando, we are fortunate to have a huge selection of beaches to enjoy. With 4th of July coming up, we will definitely be spending it enjoying the water and sunshine and it got me thinking about some good beaches to head out to. These are my favorite beaches for a weekend getaway or to spend the day. 1. Siesta Key Beach As I’ve mentioned before, this is my favorite beach! Many people agree because it has been voted America’s #1 beach. The beach itself is gorgeous, white sand and clear water with lots of activities/rentals. It’s a perfect place to spend the weekend or a few days because they also have a village with fantastic restaurants and shops. I will continue to rave […]

3-Day Weekending in Siesta Key

There is a reason that Siesta Key has been voted America’s #1 Beach – such a great place to spend a long weekend. It’s a beautiful beach with tons of activities, the most delicious places to eat, great happy hours and a large supply of vacation rentals for both couples and families. We’ve been a few times and love going back. This past weekend we stayed with my family for a long weekend celebrating my sister’s 14th birthday and although we had some unfortunate and uncharacteristic rainy weather it was still a great trip! Where We Stayed┬á You MUST stay in Siesta Key Village – it’s the best part of the Key! We always stay in this area when we go, it’s on the tip […]

2017 Epcot Flower and Garden Festival

This weekend was a busy one! The weather was absolutely perfect and I took full advantage. Saturday morning I was up bright and early to volunteer and then spent the rest of the day with friends at Disney. First, we had lunch at The Boathouse at Disney Springs. So yummy and relaxing sitting on their outdoor patio. Then, we headed to Epcot for their Flower and Garden Festival! This was my 2nd trip to the Flower and Garden Festival this year and I had a lot more time to spend and see all of the beautiful pieces of Garden art! They also had some neat chalk art and a wonderful butterfly garden! I think I may enjoy this even more than their Food & Wine […]

Adventuring Through Boston

I had an opportunity to explore a new city┬áin September and it did not disappoint! Jeff and I had never been to Boston so when his sister moved up there this summer we took the first chance we could to go up and visit! What I loved about Boston: The History. It’s just a really cool feeling to walk on streets that American legends walked on too. The Weather. Fall is a great time to visit the northeast. A cool breeze and sunshine…it was a wonderful break from the Florida heat! The Food! Travelling and eating out on a gluten-free diet isn’t always the easiest but the food was delicious every place we went and it was overall a VERY gluten-free friendly city. My favorite […]

Travel Bucket List(s)

I have a serious case of Wanderlust. There is so much out there in this great, big world that I want to see and I’ve seen so little of it. Travelling is so exciting to me, whether it’s a weekend getaway or a longer trip. I get a rush from stepping on a plane and feeling like an adventure has just begun (once I get through that annoying security.) I think that my love of travel comes from the memories I have travelling with my grandparents when I was younger. Of all of the things I can remember about them, my trips with them stick out the most. We flew to Detroit many times where their families lived and it was so much fun to […]

A Family That Drinks Together, Stays Together!

Loving all things Disney is sort of a requirement in my family. This past weekend we had a short staycation for the Epcot Food & Wine Festival. Even though I only live about 45 minutes away from the parks, I love taking a weekend here and there to stay on property and get the full Disney experience. I was really excited for this trip because a big group of my family was going and the Food & Wine Festival is one of my favorite events!
