Neil and I recently got back from a 10-day trip to Greece that included Crete, Santorini, and Athens. While every other major trip we have taken has been through sites like Groupon and Living Social, the only Greece option we were able to find at the time got terrible reviews, so we decided to GO CRAZY and book everything ourselves. It took an entire day of deciding how long to go, when to go, which islands to go to and for how long, and much more, but after a lot of headaches, WE HAD AN ITINERARY. As some of you… View Post

Instagram is such a tricky place. It’s full of highlight reels and perfect shots, destinations you may never travel to, and images that sometimes leave you feeling less than.

It’ll be a quick run down this month, but here are some of the highlights! Neil and I went on a quick trip to Cincinnati and I took a lot of the recommendations that you guys sent me and made the most of it! We were only there for about two days, but I was able to fill up my… View Post

Happy Friday friends! Sorry for the disappearance of these Friday posts for the past two weeks; I felt like I had a lot of things come up and wasn’t doing my best with time management. I was also feeling a little burnt out trying to come up with them, so when I didn’t feel the inspiration hit, I decided to take a brief hiatus. WELL I’M BACK and here to share with you some of the things I’ve been loving since the last Friday post. Make sure to let me know some of yours in the comments; I’m always on… View Post
