- Meal Prepping for the First Time We've wanted to meal prep for years and finally did it!
Anyone else hear the words “food prep” and run away as fast as you can? Me too! We have loved the idea of a meal prep day and have talked about doing it for a few years now. Anytime my hubby and I try to plan a day to do it I just get overwhelmed by all the recipes, ingredients, the grocery trip, and actually making all that food. Honestly, I’ve used every excuse I could think of to not do it, all the while actually really wanting to do it. Why are we like that, anyway?Read More
- Bok Tower Gardens A Quick Adventure to The Singing Tower
After traveling I get inspired to take more little adventures near home – to visit places that are just a short drive away. We’d heard of Bok Tower Gardens from friends who had visited, but had never been ourselves. The garden is less than two hours from Orlando and was so worth the drive.Read More
- Christmas in Philly Our 3 night stay in Philadelphia over Christmas
Last year we decided that we wanted to start a new family tradition and give our two kids (and us) an adventure for Christmas: 4 days in someplace new to enjoy each other, make memories, and not have a million people to visit.

- Haircuts and Tears We surprised Cadence with her first haircut… at Disney! She cried about it.
Truth: My Happy Place was not as happy today. We surprised our 5 year old with her first haircut at The Barber Shop in Magic Kingdom. I planned for weeks and worked hard at getting her an appointment (seriously though, it shouldn’t be as hard as it is). I was excited; I couldn’t wait to see her face when we told her what we were doing! Let me tell you how that went as we stood in front of The Barber Shop, David ready with the camera to take pictures of her happy little face… ”Cadence, we are here to let you finally get your first haircut!Read More
- Disney is My Happy Place My dad used to take us to Disney as a child and I've loved it ever since
When I was in about middle school my Dad started working at Disney. That meant I got to go to Disney whenever I wanted, as long as my mom could get me and my friends in (there was a time that you didn’t need an ID for your family members, anyone was allowed). From that point on I have always loved the Disney experience, not just the rides, but the fellowship and laughter it always brings.Read More
