Summer Family Vacation To St. Simons Island, Georgia

August 14, 2019

Raise your hand if you have ever gone on a family vacation to St. Simons Island, Georgia?! Oh wait, you didn’t know Georgia had islands? I get that reaction a LOT. I grew up on SSI, so I commonly tell people where I’m from and they’re like… Georgia has a coast?! Georgia indeed has a coast (and a beautiful one to boot). We have been talking about going away somewhere before school started. We have truly never been on a…

How To Unplug And Get Away From The City At Getaway House Atlanta

April 27, 2019

When Getaway reached out and wanted me to check out their new outpost in the South (outside of Atlanta), it was perfect timing. Tyler and I were hoping for a night or two away from the kids to celebrate our wedding anniversary, which happened to fall on the same weekend we were to visit. Not only that, but camping and hiking was our thing when we first started dating and had (WAY MORE) time alone, so it seemed like the…

February 23, 2019

This time last weekend, we were at Disney World for a short weekend! Today, I'm looking out the window at a gloomy, rainy Atlanta "winter" day... but that's neither here nor there. We decided to take the two oldest kids to Disney World on a short weekend in February for a few reasons. One, we love the weather there in February, and also it's USUALLY less crowded. (Not this time, but I'll get to that.) …

Financial Confidence Through The OnUp Experience at Suntrust Park

December 7, 2018

If you’re local to Atlanta, have you been to the new(ish) SunTrust Park yet? It’s new to us, since we lived in California for a year during the time it was being finished, but I couldn’t wait to check it out when we got back to Atlanta. The new stadium and surrounding shopping and activities have been all the buzz for Georgians. Although we attended our first Braves game at SunTrust Park in the spring, we had yet to check…

North Atlanta Wedding and Event Venue: The Manor Golf & Country Club

November 12, 2018

One thing I will never get tired of is exploring my own city. Obviously, Atlanta proper is no small town, and things to do are a’ plenty, but North Atlanta and the suburbs around Alpharetta are equally exciting. We have been living in North Fulton near for almost a year now, and we love it. There is truly a surplus of things to do from shopping to dining and I can’t imagine living somewhere else. This area feels like the…

You guys might have seen on social media that I was at the Beaches Resort in Turks & Caicos the week before last. That trip will have to be split into a couple of blog posts, because it was that packed with fun. I was invited to attend the Social Media On The Sand conference on a tropical island with a chance to listen to inspiring speakers and meet with brands in my niche. Did I mention I would be…

A Road Trip In The Pacific Northwest

August 14, 2018
Pacific Northwest Road TRip

Can we talk about manifesting things into reality for a second? I have been talking to friends and my husband lately about really wanting to see the Pacific Northwest. Specifically, I really wanted to drive up the Oregon Coast, see Portland, and then road trip up to Seattle. I was very specific about this addition to the ‘ole bucket list. You can imagine my complete disbelief and elation when I was invited to work with Mazda on a campaign that…

A Road Trip To Chattanooga, Tennessee (With Kids)

July 9, 2018

And just like that… Chattanooga, Tennessee (with kids) is in the books! My exploration of the Southern gems within driving distance of Atlanta landed me in Chattanooga this past weekend with kids. This time, I took the whole crew! Yep, all three kiddos, the husband and I trekked the quick two hour drive just over the Tennessee line to see what Chatt-Town had to offer. (Or as the kids are calling it nowadays: “Nooga”.) As usual, everyone on Instagram came…
