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.

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!  :)

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!

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...

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...

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....

Norfolk Botanical Gardens first hosted the magical LanternAsia Art by Day, Magic by Night exhibit in 2016.  Sadly, I was unable to attend in prior years, but when I found out that Norfolk Botanical Gardens would be hosting this event for the third year in a row, I knew...

A couple of weeks ago, I visited the 2018 Philadelphia Flower Show with one of my oldest and dearest friends.  We had so much fun!

The Philadelphia Flower Show is the region's oldest and largest indoor flower show, dating back to it's debut in 1829.  The show takes visi...

I was one of the lucky ones to get the flu this winter season.  I hope you were not!  Although I felt better, I still had a lingering hacking cough that just wouldn't go away...  

We have been traveling to Williamsburg, Virginia every winter for the past 5-6 y...

I probably get more excited about animals than anything else, so we try to incorporate a unique animal experience into our vacations whenever we can.

The Virginia Safari Park is located in Rockbridge county, at exit 180/180-B off I-81 in Natural Bridge, Virginia tucked...
