Reminiscing Florida’s Forgotten Coast

The best time to relive summer beach vacation memories is when I’m cooped up inside on a cold December night.  My last two posts are about Maine’s summer colors and scenic shoreline.  This time, I am going to write about our 2010 trip to a beach town in Northwest Florida. When Johnny’s brother announced that … Continue reading

Color me Maine

When it’s cold and raining outside, like it is right now, I’m glad to have pictures from our summer trip to lighten up the mood.  Maine in the summer time was bursting with color.  Coupled with beautiful weather, the scenery was truly a feast for the eyes.

How the Grinch Stole Christmas: an ICE! sculpture exhibit by Gaylord Opryland

Of all the travels that we have done together as a couple, one of Johnny’s all-time favorites is our 2008 Christmas trip to Nashville, TN.  We had only been married for 3 months, and I surprised him with a Christmas package from Gaylord Opryland.  Collectively called “A Country Christmas,” it included a stay at the … Continue reading

A special day on Warbington Farms in Cumming, GA

To cap off our wonderful Thanksgiving weekend, we visited Warbington Farms in Cumming, GA, in order to pick out our first “real” Christmas tree.  Ever since we got married 3 years ago, Johnny kept begging me to have a real tree, instead of the plastic one we got on sale at a local drugstore.  He … Continue reading

After researching hotels in the Coral … Continue reading

Sleepless Night Miami Beach 2011

A few weeks before our November trip to South Florida, I read an article in the Travel + Leisure magazine that Miami Beach was going to host an event called Sleepless Night.  I was so intrigued, that I decided to book a hotel for 2 nights in South Beach so that my husband and I … Continue reading

South Carolina’s SPOOKY Angel

In the spirit of Halloween, I will write about something that could have come out of  Netherworld. Meet Angel.  To be precise: the Angel Oak Tree. While “The Tree” did not actually originate from the otherworld, being around it was enough to give me nightmares. We first heard about the Angel Oak Tree just a … Continue reading

Offbeat attractions along the Southern Maine Coast

Maine is no doubt one of the most beautiful states we have ever been to.  We couldn’t help but fall in love with the quaint villages, dramatic shorelines, and the colorful summer flowers.  On our trip in August 2011, we spent 5 days exploring the southern coast of Maine, and even made a quick visit … Continue reading
