In honor of President's Day this weekend, I am sharing more about my surreal encounter with 43 larger than life former U.S. Presidents.

So, what are the President Heads you might ask?

Standing tall and proud, the busts are remnants of what was once Presidents Park in Wil...

Do you unplug while away on vacation or are you constantly searching for the free Wi-Fi every place you go?  My husband always jokes that I purposefully pick small town road trip destinations without any cell reception on purpose...and he's RIGHT!  :)

Hey everyone!  I hope everyone is staying cool in this early summer heat wave we are having!  

I know I have been missing in action lately and I wanted to let you know that I will be back to blogging soon!

Ever wonder what happens behind the scenes at Pimlico Race Course in the week leading up to the Preakness Stakes?  You have to get up early (and I mean REALLY early!) to experience the best kept secret in Baltimore!

Every year, in the week leading up to Preakness, Piml...

As many of you know, advocacy for safer non-toxic personal care products is important to me.  I am excited when I see that our voice is being heard!  

Hawaii state lawmakers just passed legislation (currently waiting on the Governor's signature) that will ban sunsc...

About 10 minutes drive from the Omni Bedford Springs Resort is this fantastic living history village.

At the entrance to the village is a beautiful 126’ long Claycomb Covered Bridge.  In 1975, it was moved to the Old Bedford Village and placed over the Raystown Branch o...

The curious and ginormous Coffee Pot located along the Lincoln Highway in Bedford, Pennsylvania, is not an actual coffee shop, but rather a novelty landmark built in the shape of a coffee pot!

The Lincoln Highway was the first east to west coast highway built in the Uni...

Happy Cinco de Mayo everyone! 

We love Mexican food and typically have a home cooked Mexican themed dish about once a week, such as Fajitas, Tacos, Carne Asada, etc... 

Over the years, we have mastered our Guacamole making skills giving even some of our...

Yesterday, a friend and I visited the spring tulip festival at Burnside Farms, one of the world's largest pick-you-own flower farms.  

There is nothing prettier than fields of flowers as far as you can see!

If you have never been before, it’s well worth it!  Besides for...

In Montgomery County, MD, we are lucky to have access to farm fresh fruits and veggies all year round at the indoor Dutch Amish Market in Germantown (read more about it HERE), but once the weather warms up in the Spring and Summer you can find me getting my shopping an...

Cows, Ice Cream, Cheese - Yes, Please!

One of the reasons I love living in the DC suburbs of Maryland is because we get to enjoy it all!  I love being just a short metro ride into DC to the city sights.  But more s...

Is watching a performance by Cirque du Soleil on your bucket list?  Now is your chance!

Cirque du Soleil LUZIA has made its stop under the Big Tent in Tysons Corner, VA until May 27th.  Sean and I went with some close friends and this show is a big hit!

This was my seco...

One of our favorite day trips and weekend getaways is Lancaster County, PA to visit the Amish country.  It's beautiful country!  The Amish crafts are spectacular and food is delicious.  Fall is our favorite time to visit.  However, we can't always find time to escape t...

Step back in time and enjoy a treat at one of Virginia’s favorite drive-in restaurants.

I first heard of Doumar's from some clients of mine in Hampton, VA - they described it as a must-see historic landmark in Norfolk with some of the best ice cream around.  So, of cour...

Looking for something incredibly unique to do this Easter week?  I'd suggest you pack up the family and take a short trip up the road to Westminster, MD.  Every year in the weeks leading up to Easter, the Carroll Arts Council in Westminster, MD hosts a PEEP Show....
