When we traveled to Boston in October of 2018, I knew I had to make a trip up to Salem! We were able to take the train from downtown to Salem, and it took a little under an hour to get there! The views were beautiful as well. Most of the city we were able to walk, however we did take an Uber once or twice!salemwitchmuseum

The Salem Witch Museum was very interactive and interesting! The museum has a guided section with interactive presentations and a self-guided portion that discuss the Salem Witch Trials of 1692. It was really eye-opening and sad what so many of the women went through, many of whom were killed and did not – you guessed it – participate in “witchcraft”. The tour is about an hour long and very educational! At the time of this post, the cost is $13 for adults.

After our tour, we spent some time walking around Salem. It really is a beautiful little town, right on the water!

Salem during October is decked from head-to-toe in orange and black and hats and pumpkins! There were several little streets lined with food vendors and shopping! It was so fun!

It is very clear that Salem has a theme going for it! You can find something “witchy” at almost every turn in the main area of the city!

I even ran into this cute little Bewitched Statue & yes, there was a line to take a photo with it!

Okay, Hocus Pocus was always one of my favorite October movies growing up. I probably would have gone to Salem just to see it! Haha! If you don’t know what Hocus Pocus is, it is a Classic Halloween Disney movie that is still very popular today! The house is located at 8 Ocean Avenue – please be respectful as this is a private residence.

Speaking of Hocus Pocus, there is another famous location from the movie in Salem! The house of the character Allison is also in Salem!

If you’ve seen the movie Hocus Pocus, you will recognize this as Allison’s house! It was featured in the movie during the Halloween Party! It is located at 318 Essex Street and is open for tours!

The Witch House is the only structure still standing in Salem with connections to the Salem Witch Trials. This was the home of Jonathan Corwin, the Judge who was called on to investigate the claims of witchcraft in Salem and was part of the court that sent nineteen people to the gallows. There are guided house tours here.

After walking around Salem all afternoon, we were ready for a bite to eat!


Processed with VSCO with c4 preset

The New England Soup Factory of Salem is so delicious! They are located in Salem in a cute and quaint little shop. I am a huge fan of soup, and when the weather is chilly in New England, this is the perfect spot! I loved it! 10/10 recommend if you are in Salem!

After having lunch, we headed back to the train station to go back to Boston for the evening! You can definitely make this a day trip or longer if you so choose!

Atlanta Mini-Weekend Guide



July 2017

Last July, Tyler and I traveled to beautiful Atlanta for a friend’s wedding, and spent an awesome mini-weekend in Atlanta! I wanted to share some of our favorite spots from this trip so y’all can enjoy them too! We can’t wait to go back someday! So here are the 10 Places in Atlanta we loved and not to miss!


  1. World of Coca-Cola


Are you a Coke or a Pepsi fan?! Honestly, I’m both! I definitely had to see the World of Coca-Cola while in ATL, it’s home base! When you enter, they give you a can of Coke, so fun! There are tons of exhibits for all ages, walking you through their history and today. There is even a room for trying all sorts of Coca-Cola products, and an awesome gift shop! You can even meet the Coca-Cola polar bear!



2. College Football Hall of Fame


Fun fact, Tyler was a college football quarterback and I was a college cheerleader! We are College Football fanatics, so we HAD to go to the College Football HOF! When you enter, you get to register your favorite team to find out fun facts along the way! We even found our college football team on the wall of helmets! As an Ohio State University fan, and Tyler an Oklahoma University fan, we LOVED all of the facts and memorabilia!


At the end, there is an indoor football field with fun challenges like kicking a field goal and quarterback challenges!

3. The Pig and The Pearl


I found this place on Instagram and had to try it! Nothing is better than some good ole’ southern cooking! I had a brisket sandwich – yum, and Tyler had a shrimp platter! Their cornbread was AMAZING! Their drinks were also delish; I had a “Georgia Peach”!

4. Skyview Atlanta


A giant ferris wheel in downtown Atlanta? This totally brought out the kid in me, and I loved it! The views of Atlanta from the top are gorgeous!

5. Revolution Doughnuts


I had heard AMAZING things about Revolution Doughnuts, and they were right! Tucked away in the CUTEST little neighborhood, these were so so good! I also had an iced Chai latte that was to-die-for! My favorite was the Toasted Almond Cake Doughnut!


6. Piedmont Park


Piedmont Park is a beautiful park with gorgeous views of downtown Atlanta! We enjoyed wandering around the park exploring, especially around Lake Clara Meer and the Meadow, where you can see beautiful views! You can also rent bikes and ride around the beautiful Atlanta Beltline – a series of trails around Atlanta!

7. Centennial Olympic Park


Did you know that Atlanta, Georgia hosted the Olympic Games in 1996? This park in Downtown Atlanta is dedicated to it, complete with a fountain of Olympic Rings with a music and light show! We stopped by here at sunset!


8. SkyLounge Atlanta

This sky bar in Atlanta has beautiful views of the city! It is so gorgeous lit up at night, so we had a drink here to take in the views!

9. Canoe Restaurant


We went to Canoe for a delicious brunch outside of Atlanta on the Chattachoochee River! Not only was breakfast delicious, but this place is GORGEOUS! There is a beautiful aqua-colored bridge just a short walk from the restaurant that is also beautiful. I would label it a MUST DO! The dinner menu is upscale with a variety of options, click the link above to see their menu!



10. Ponce City Market


Last but certainly not least, is Ponce City Market! This place is AMAZING, and another MUST DO for me! This food hall is ANYTHING but ordinary! They have TONS of amazing food vendors including a favorite of mine – Five Daughters Bakery! Head up to The Roof to The Skyline Park to find delicious foods and drinks as well as a gorgeous view of the skyline of Atlanta! This place is NOT TO MISS!



Atlanta is FULL of amazing murals and street artists! I was not blogging at the time of this trip, so I only have a few murals to share with you from this particular trip!

Nashville 3-Day Travel Guide



Welcome to Nashville y’all! Of all of the cities we have traveled to thus far, this may just be my favorite! I’ve always been a huge fan of country music ever since I was a little girl! My favorite artists being Shania Twain, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Johnny Cash, Carrie Underwood and more; so naturally Nashville, aka Music City, was the perfect vacation for us! If you have an appreciation for music and it’s roots, you’ll love Nashville too! If you enjoy drinking and bar hopping through live music and fun crowds, you’ll love Nashville too! So, let’s go to Nashville!



After arriving at Nashville International Airport (BNA), we were so happy to hear live music playing in the terminal! We headed over to our hotel, Aloft Nashville West End, which has an awesome view of downtown! We were lucky enough to have our good friends Hannah and Alec also in town for the day, so we met them for lunch at what is now one of my favorite taco spots in the U.S.!



Mas Tacos is freaking amazing. I love tacos and Mexican, but this stuff is awesome and authentic! There is indoor and outdoor seating, but be aware – no air conditioning! It was pretty hot that day, but it was totally worth it for these tacos.


I had Cast Iron Chicken Tacos, filled with skillet chicken, salsa verde, and sour cream – YUM! They even have a Fried Avocado taco *insert surprised emoji here*! I also had a Lime Cilantro Agua Fresca, amazing, and Mexican Street Corn, or Elote! Not only is the food delicious, the decor is colorful and funky with giant Christmas lights! More Tacos Please!




I’m always down for a good milkshake, so it was just perfect that The Soda Parlor was a short drive from Mas Tacos! This place is SO adorable – reminds me of a 50’s soda shop!


I had a Son-Of-Reese’s milkshake, a chocolate and peanut butter malt topped with whipped cream and a Reese’s cup!


Tyler had a Master Commander, a root beer float! This place is so cute and also delicious! The East Nash mural is also right outside!



Y’all, there aren’t enough words to describe how much I loved The Bluebird Cafe. When I was researching Nashville I knew this was somewhere I needed to go, and boy was I right. First off, The Bluebird Cafe is a music venue in a strip mall in Nashville, but is is SO much more than that. Local singers and songwriters play here, and we were lucky enough to get tickets for a Friday night show.


The specifics about their reservations can be found on the link I’ve shared above, I waited almost 2 hours in the online ticket queue for ours, but it was so worth it. They sell out, AND FAST. If you get in through the Queue you’ll pick seats from the limited tables! If you aren’t lucky enough to get a ticket online (going on sale either one week in advance, or on the Monday the week of the show) you can take your chances and wait in line at the door, but get there early! Anyone showing up with tickets lines up on the LEFT; anyone hoping to score a seat lines up on the RIGHT. The tickets are FREE.


Now, on to the show. We were lucky enough to have an amazing group of artists the night we were there – J.T. Harding, Phil Barton, Jesse Lee, and Bobby Hamrick! My favorite song was “Coconuts” by Bobby Hamrick – hoping we will hear it on the radio soon! This was an “In The Round” performance, meaning the performers were in the middle of the room of the small intimate venue. An “In The Row” performance is on the stage. Food and drinks are available – I had deviled eggs and Tennessee Brew Works beers. I can tell you that is is about 2 hours of pure musical magic. We laughed, we cried – pure bliss for anyone who appreciates intimate music venues. Many famous musicians have been discovered or played here such as Garth Brooks, Taylor Swift, Faith Hill, and more.



We hit up Lower Broadway – the area of Broadway closest to the Cumberland River with all of the famous Nashville bars – every night! I’ll tell you about my favorite bars here:

Tin Roof – a cool vibe with Christmas Lights, lots of color, live bands, and bikes hanging from the ceiling!

Honky Tonk Central – this was our favorite bar on Lower Broad! Definitely a 20-something scene, but this place has 3 floors of live music, open air balconies, and the drinks are flowing! We returned here every night, and even tipped a little more to hear Folsom Prison Blues by Johnny Cash!


Robert’s Western World – This place is a real-deal honky tonk, so if you want to hear fiddle and steel guitar, you’ll probably hear it here! It’s a cozy place with paintings of the great country artists of all time on the walls!


Tootsie’s – This is probably one of the most famous bars in Nashville, and for good reason! This purple colored building has an awesome venue space, however it was pretty PACKED! Well, when we went upstairs and found Kid Rock playing, I guess we found out why! Too cool!


The Stage – This place has awesome acoustics and we caught an awesome band here and live fiddle! Loved it!

Broadway is a lot of fun because there is music day and night! There is always something going on and lots of people watching!


There were plenty of other awesome bars, including new ones like Ole Red, Whiskey Row, Jason Aldean’s, and FGL house – which we hope to hit up next time!





I love Biscuit Love, but do not come here unless you’re willing to wait in a long line! I was, and the food was really awesome, but there are for sure other places in Nashville to find biscuits, so plan accordingly! 🙂 Biscuit Love is super cute and known for it’s Bonuts and Nashville sign!


We waited about 1 hr 15 minutes on a Saturday morning! I had the Bonuts, which are phenomenal! They are fried biscuit dough with lemon mascarpone and blueberry compote! (This is a lot and can be eaten by itself!) I also had to try their Biscuit and Gravy – yum! The biscuits are fluffy and flaky, just perfect. Tyler had the East Nasty, fried chicken, cheddar, gravy and biscuits – He liked it a lot! I also had an iced chai, delish!


After, we walked over to the Kelsey Montague Wings mural – featured later. Be prepared to wait 30-40 minutes to get your shot with this one too!



We changed up our plans a little bit after a downpour, and decided to head over to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum! We both love history AND music, so this place was awesome! They had a Shania Twain exhibit, and a Faith Hill and Tim McGraw exhibit, which I loved! It was really awesome to read, hear, and see the history of Country Music come alive in this museum – from the beginning to now!




I LOVE JOHNNY CASH, so for me, the Johnny Cash Museum was a MUST DO. Located right off Lower Broadway, this museum is small, but packed with memorabilia of the Man in Black himself, and his love, June Carter Cash. This museum was amazing because there are so many interactive experiences – with headphones and a photo booth!




The Grand Ole Opry began as a radio broadcast in 1925, and it still is a live broadcast today! This huge venue, located outside of downtown, has hosted massive Country Legends, and we were lucky enough to catch a show featuring Trace Adkins! It’s nicknamed The Home of Country Music and Country’s Most Famous Stage. If you get a chance to see The Opry, I’m labeling this a MUST DO if you love Country Music! You’ll get to see a live show broadcast over WSM and you might even see one of your favorite artists! You’ll see people of all ages here, so awesome!


After the Opry, we hit up Lower Broad again!





In the area known as 12 South, we headed over to Five Daughters Bakery, because DONUTS, actually, 100-Layer Donuts! They are totally delicious, with sweet icing and flaky laters – mouth-watering! The building itself is adorable with turquoise, white, and pink everywhere! They even have little photo displays outside for photo ops!





I needed to have some good ole’ bbq while in Nashville, and Edley’s BBQ didn’t disappoint! This is also in the 12 South area, so it was a short walk from Five Daughters Bakery in between mural hunting! This place is a “Tribute to All Things Southern”. I had a brisket platter with potato salad, baked beans, and cornbread – WOW.




The Ryman. This is the place where Johnny met June, nuff said. Originally a tabernacle, this became the home of the Opry after being a home for traveling acts, and after being saved from destruction, is still a beautiful venue today!

We did a guided backstage tour, totally worth it! Self guided tours are also available. We even had our photo taken at the Mother Church of Country Music – exactly where Johnny and June stood!


music city walk of fame.jpg


Of course I had to walk the Music City Walk of Fame to see all of my favorite country music artists and the greats! Stop by and snap a few photos on your favorite STAR!




After hitting up Lower Broad and Boot Barn to get a new pair of boots in Nashville, we walked over to the Tennessee State Capitol, because I’ve made a goal recently to see every state capitol building! This building is BEAUTIFUL, so we snapped a photo and headed back to the hotel! We went back out on Lower Broadway that night!




In the morning we walked the Pedestrian Bridge to get some awesome views of Nashville before we left for the airport! We attempted to eat at Hattie B’s, but the line was so long we ended up having to leave – next time!

Austin 4-Day Travel Guide



March 2018

Welcome to Austin, Texas! I hope you’ve got your cowboy boots on (just kidding, not everyone wears them!) and that you’re ready to get a little “weird”! This was one of our favorite trips yet, and I am so excited to share our itinerary with y’all!

We flew into Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, which instantly makes you feel so excited to be there! They have LIVE MUSIC playing in their terminal, what?! So cool. AUSTIN DOES HAVE UBER (I kept trying to figure this out before I got there, haha).


We uber’d to our hotel – Aloft Austin Downtown. I LOVED OUR HOTEL (nobody is paying me to say this, haha!). It is in the perfect location, located between 6th and 7th street on Congress Ave – you’ll see why this is perfect as you read! They even have BOOTS TO BORROW during your stay! (SEE PHOTO ABOVE.) The room was so cute and hip! We even had a gorgeous view of the Texas State Capitol building!


At Aloft, they have a really cool restaurant/bar named Upstairs at Caroline on the 2nd floor with delicious cocktails and appetizers (a pop rocks alcoholic drink and a creamy corn dip, yum!), and on the 1st floor they have an amazing little cafe named Caroline’s (marshmellow lattes, giant cinnamon rolls, breakfast tacos … drooling yet?).


After check in, it was time to walk South Congress (SoCo as some call it)! We attempted to see the bats (yes, bats) under the South Congress bridge, but according to an Austin local, it was too cold at this time for them to all fly out from under the bridge at sunset! Definitely on my list of things to see next time!




After watching a gorgeous sunset from the South Congress Bridge, we walked (uphill, lots of walking) to Torchy’s Tacos – this location being on SoCo. I knew there was one thing I had to get at Torchy’s, queso. It was freakin’ amazin’. I had The Democrat and the Tipsy Chick tacos – delicious! It’s a really fun and colorful atmosphere!



Once we wandered off with bellies full of deliciousness, we were prepared for night out on the famous Sixth Street. They call it the “Bourbon Street” of Austin – I heard this about a thousand times while we were there, haha! We went on a Thursday night, so it was pretty low-key. They shut down a portion of the street so guests can enjoy the nightlife scene. I love these old buildings right in the middle of downtown!


We started at Greenlight Social – a rooftop bar with cool views. Then, we went to San Jacinto Saloon – OUR ABSOLUTE FAVE. San Jacinto had beer on top and cans, live country music, and a really awesome crowd (kind of the place I think of when I think of the things I love about Texas). We also wandered into the Dizzy Rooster which was also a lot of fun and had a cool, Austin, aesthetic. We walked all of Sixth Street until we got close to the I-35 and then returned to San Jacinto!




Did you see this coming? Donuts! I have known about the famous Voodoo Doughnut which can only be found in certain cities like Austin, Portland, and Denver and have always wanted to try these! Voodoo Doughnut is an experience for sure, and one that I enjoyed very much! Their donuts are delicious, funny, and a little risqué.


My favorite was probably the Bubble Gum Donut because I wasn’t sure if I should chew on it like gum or just eat it, haha!  I also think it’s totally necessary to get the Homer Simpson, since we have him to blame for our donut craze! Good things really do come in pink boxes!




All morning we went mural hunting; we actually walked around 15 miles searching for murals! Crazy, I know – I suggest breaking them up into different days, as we were SO TIRED after finding them all! I will share the murals at the end of this itinerary, as well as in my Austin Mural Guide!



This is definitely my favorite place in all of Austin (so far). Guero’s Taco Bar is AMAZING. First off, it’s Tex-Mex at it’s finest, with an entire SALSA bar. Am I dreaming? Nope. The tacos were amazing, the margaritas were amazing, the service was amazing, and their story is pretty cool too! It’s in an old Feed and Seed and the building is super rustic and neat looking! Outside on the patio there is live music too! This is a MUST-DO. I even picked up salsa and chips from here a few days later to enjoy as a late night snack!




Right down the road from Guero’s is Allen’s Boots, a Texas tradition. They have boots that are reasonably priced for boots ($200s) and boots that are crazy high prices ($700 boots anyone?). Either way, it’s super cool to go here and see the rows of boots, smell the leather, and try on a pair! Tyler actually got a pair of boots here and now we have a fun memory together!




In the middle of the Colorado River on the Southeast part of town is Lady Bird Lake. We went here to walk the trail around the lake and relax a bit. The water reflects beautifully, but the city is pretty hard to see from this location. The colors were dreamy at golden hour and perfect for photography!



For sunset, we went over to Zilker Park – which is massive. We walked over to the edge of the park near the Colorado River to catch sunset over the river and the skyline – it was GORGEOUS! Austin is known as the city of the Violet Crown, meaning the color that lines the horizon at sunset is violet, and I swear I saw a violet crown! We even witnessed a couple get engaged in the little spot right by the water, so beautiful! During the summer, taking a dip in the Barton Springs Pool is a MUST! It was a tad too cool for dipping for us.




Tyler’s favorite part of the trip, Chuy’s. I’m pretty sure he talked about it for two weeks before we went to Austin! Chuy’s is a thing, and it’s a good thing. It is also the only thing we had a wait for, so be prepared, but come hungry! We walked here right from Zilker Park. Chuy’s is also Tex-Mex, and it is so good. I tried my first chile con queso here, yum! The margaritas were so good and my tacos were on point! This location is the ORIGINAL Chuy’s on Barton Springs Road, so I was thrilled to be here! The decor is quirky, with wooden fish, hubcaps, and Elvis shrines. It’s sure to delight your eyes and your taste buds!


My FIRST Texas dance hall, so fun! But, this isn’t just any dance hall; this place has been visited by tons of country celebrities – like Garth Brooks, Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson, Travis Tritt, George W. Bush, and so many more! We loved watching everyone dancing and listening to the live country music (classics like Johnny Cash), so fun! These dancers were REALLLYYY good; I really need to learn how to two-step, haha! We had a beer and had a great time!


After Broken Spoke, we headed out to Rainey Street to meet up with our local friend Alex! We went bar hopping along Rainey Street, which I’m going to label a MUST DO. The crowd is a little bit older than Sixth Street, and in a good way! Rainey is a short street of houses turned bars on the southeast corner of downtown, how cool is that?! We went to Lustre Pearl and Unbarlievable! Unbarlievable looks like a circus and has a SLIDE inside. Container Bar is made out of shipping containers, pretty cool, but had a pretty long wait. I would definitely suggest popping into different bars because they are all so different and quirky and awesome, kind of like Austin!


Ah, the day I ate my first breakfast taco, life changing. I had a Chicken Sausage breakfast taco stuffed with scrambled eggs and melty cheese from Caroline’s Cafe! It was amazing and I actually dream about it, haha.



The Texas State Capitol is BEAUTIFUL. It is a MUST SEE for me. The Dome of the Capitol is said to be higher than the US Capitol, crazy right?! The building has this beautiful tan-almost pink color and the architecture is simply gorgeous. We went inside and walked around the corridors and different floors! Up the dome of the Capitol are the paintings of Texas Governors, really lovely!


This is the Dome of the Capitol; I love the turquoise blue TEXAS with the star at the top!





The Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum was so cool and interactive! I was so curious to learn more about Tyler’s home state and I definitely did! As you go through the museum, you walk through “The Story of Texas” chronologically. There are a ton of artifacts and interesting facts along the way! I really loved this!


(We went to a wedding the Saturday night of day three.)




Ever been to brunch in an adorable remodeled house?! Josephine House was a perfect Brunch spot for us and our friend Blake to visit! The whole house is navy, love that color, and has outdoor seating under string lights, with delicious food! I had Lemon Ricotta Pancakes, YUM. Tyler had a breakfast burger which looked insanely good!



Erin Condren Store

After brunch, we went to Domain Northside, which to be honest, is quite far from Downtown. I HAD to see the Erin Condren store, which has an adorable rainbow colored mural on the outside, and a flight of rainbow stairs inside! We also went to Sprinkles Cupcake ATM where I got to have my favorite cupcake – Sprinkle (birthday cake with vanilla buttercream).

Sprinkles Cupcakes



In my personal opinion, no trip to Austin would be complete without a trip to the original Kendra Scott store on South Congress. This is also her very own design studio! Kendra Scott is an amazing jewelry designer with a beautiful collection that I have been a fan of for some time now! We browsed and I purchased new earrings and a necklace! LOVE!



For dinner, we dined in at Homeslice Pizza, located on SoCo, which also has a take out window next door! I’m a sucker for a good pizza pie, and Homeslice is an authentic New York style pizza. The lights are dimmed and it makes for an old-school, romantic pizza shop vibe. The cheese pizza was so yummy and we chowed down while drinking fountain soda pop! Such a cool experience!




I wanted to have a good breakfast on the day we left on Austin, so we dined at the nearby Driskill Hotel, at the 1886 Cafe & Bakery. I finally got to have my Texas-shaped-waffle, haha! My Texas Pecan Waffle was delicious and covered in fresh berries, bananas, and pecans, while Tyler enjoyed an Austin American Breakfast! The hotel itself is absolutely beautiful on the inside and worth a visit!




The Hope Outdoor Gallery is a GEM. A massive hill filled with walls of graffiti and artwork; so colorful I could cry tears of joy! The climb up is NO JOKE, so wear good shoes. But, the view at the top over Downtown Austin is totally worth it. This is a MUST DO.


Apparently, it is being moved from the location that it is in during my visit (March 2018), and will be moving in June 2018 – so see their site for details of its location.

Washington D.C. – Perfect 3-Day Itinerary



Welcome to Washington D.C. (District of Columbia) and my nation’s Capitol! I’m extremely proud to be an American and I love learning about United States history. If you also love history, delicious food, kind people, and beautiful architecture, D.C. is the place for you to visit! So let’s get started on a 3-Day Itinerary…

Just having my Elle Woods in Legally Blonde moment

Tyler & I flew in through Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, however you can also fly in through Dulles International Airport. We checked into our hotel, Hyatt Place Washington DC National Mall, which we really loved; it is modern, with a convenient location right on the National Mall, and an awesome rooftop bar with a view of the Washington Monument! There is a Metro system here (WMATA), but we mostly walked, and used an occasional Uber or Taxi. We traveled to D.C. in March 2017 before my blog launched, so follow along with me as I share my itinerary!


The first thing you need to know if you’re visiting D.C. is to BRING YOUR WALKING SHOES! We did a lot of walking here, especially on Day One!

Note the Comfortable Shoes ^^



The National Mall stretches from the Capitol Building to the Potomac River; it is 1.9 miles from the Capitol Building steps to the Lincoln memorial! I told you to be ready to walk, haha! With so much to do along the way, it is totally worth it to walk it! We planned our entire day around the sites and museums along the National Mall. The National Park Service has a great interactive map here.



Our first stop was the Capitol Building, we did not go inside, however, tour information is listed on their website here. The Dome of the building is just gorgeous, and is truly a national treasure! We walked around the steps and saw some of the awesome statues around the front of the building. This is a perfect photo opportunity!

Although this was my THIRD time to DC, this was Tyler’s first!

I don’t have a photo from the Air and Space Museum, but here is another @ The Capitol!

Next, we walked a short way to the National Air and Space Museum. Admission is FREE. Tyler is REALLY into aircraft, especially war aircraft (he already knew every plane in this place and was basically my tour guide)! So, we spent most of our time on the “Air” side of the museum, however, since I had been here before, I knew I couldn’t leave without some Space Ice Cream (so weird, but SO good!). For lunch we ate at one of the many Food Stands along the National Mall; there are also many food trucks!



When we walked up to The White House, Tyler and I could not figure out why we couldn’t get closer! Well, when we saw a crowd gathering at the fence, we figured it out! We actually got to see the President of the United States land at the White House, like… what?! So cool! It was super hard to get a photo with the massive crowd, so we came back the next day; however we snapped some cool photos of the Marine One – the Presidential Helicopter!



At the time of this post, The Washington Monument is closed (internally) for reconstruction of the elevator until Spring 2019, so we didn’t get to ride up to the top for an awesome view, but we did get to see it in all of it’s glory! The Washington Monument is a 555-foot obelisk to honor George Washington, our first President.



Tyler & I are both really into war history, so the National WWII Memorial was very important for us to visit!


Not only is it beautiful, but it honors the 16 million members of the US Military who served, including the 400k who gave the ultimate sacrifice. The Memorial represents the states and territories with 56 pillars, sculptural pavilions representing the Pacific and Atlantic Theatres, a wall of 4,000 gold stars representing those lost, and a beautiful fountain in the middle.

Standing with our home states!

The Pavilion representing the Atlantic Theatre

This was especially special to us because Tyler’s Great Grandfather served in WWII.





The National Museum of American History was definitely one of our favorites because we love history so much, especially American history! We had such a fun time going through all of the exhibits; there is SO much here! Like much of the National Mall Museums, this museums admission is FREE. Get to know American Democracy and see the original Star Spangled Banner!



The wall at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial represents the 58k who gave their lives in service to the United States in the Vietnam War. It is truly beautiful, and many people leave flags and flowers at the base of the wall. It also includes “The Three Men” statue and the Vietnam Women’s Memorial.



The Lincoln Memorial, with the large sitting sculpture of the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln, is the final stop in the National Mall. We made it here for sunset and also viewed the Korean War Veterans Memorial after dark (When the statues are lit up, beautiful!), and could see the Tidal Basin across the road. Lincoln saved the Union during the Civil War and was a leader in reinforcing that “All Men Are Created Equal”. This is the place where Martin Luther King Jr. gave his “I Have A Dream” speech, and it is truly a moving experience to be in this place.

My waiter told me that this building used to be an old department store, and with it’s gorgeous art and those chandeliers… it is GORGEOUS. The Hamilton is a MUST DO. The food is delicious (Skillet Mac & Cheese), reasonably priced (especially for the fancy building), and the service was insanely amazing! The waiter told me that they pride themselves on impeccable service and affordable dining! They also have a live music hall!



Opening in 1856, Old Ebbitt Grill is the oldest saloon in DC! So naturally, we had to stop and have a drink!



The POV Rooftop @ The W was such an awesome experience! We had a recommendation from a friend, and it didn’t disappoint! With a beautiful rooftop bar overlooking the White House and Washington Monument, this was the perfect last stop of the day to see Washington DC lit up!





We started Day Two at Arlington National Cemetery. It is hard to put into words how this place makes me feel; I feel pride for my country, respect for those who have served and those we lost, and emotional in honoring those who gave the ultimate sacrifice.


The grounds are beautiful, and it is important to remain respectful and quiet while in the Cemetery. Many funerals, memorials, and public services are happening and it is important to follow the cemetery rules. You would think this goes without saying, but I did notice others talking on the phone, and they were called out.

A MUST DO is seeing the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and seeing the Changing of the Guard. The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is where an unknown American soldier from WWI was originally buried on March 4, 1921, and the unknown soldiers of WWII, Korea, and Vietnam were chosen and are also buried. (Read details here: Tomb of the Unknown Soldier). The Changing of the Guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier happens every hour on the hour; you must stand and stay silent for this ceremony.

You can also visit the John. F. Kennedy burial site, and the Eternal Flame. There is a lot of walking here, however there is a tram for those who cannot.

Thank you to those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for my freedom.



After our visit to Arlington Cemetery, we walked over to the US Marine Corps War Memorial and it’s depiction of Iwo Jima through this statue. I’ve read that this Memorial will have limited access through Spring of 2018, so visit the site above for details before you visit!


Near the USMC Memorial is the Netherlands Carillon, a gift of a beautiful-bell tower to symbolize Dutch-American friendship. In the Spring, a tulip garden grows, and you can view the Lincoln Memorial, Washington Monument, and Capitol Building.




Next, we went to The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, where we had lunch at the Museum Cafe before our ticket time. Tickets are either reserved ahead of time online ($1) or the day of  (free). Based on the tip of a friend that the tickets sell-out quickly, we reserved our ticket and time-slot online! This museum was incredible, emotional, and 100% a MUST DO in my opinion. The museum gives a chronological narrative over three-floors through the permanent exhibition, The Holocaust, ending in the Hall of Remembrance.




The Newseum was my favorite museum of DC. Tickets are $25 for two-days, for a four-story walk through of the biggest “news” stories of American history. My favorite current exhibits include Civil Rights, the FBI, Berlin Wall Gallery, The First Dogs, and the 9/11 Gallery – featuring the radio tower from the top of one of the Twin Towers. You can even practice your reporting skills in the NBC News Interactive Room, and get an amazing view of the National Mall from the Terrace.

After dinner @ Graffiato, a yummy Italian restaurant by Mike Isabella where we had delicious pasta, we went over to Jack Rose Dining Saloon! They have the most bottles of Whiskey in the Western Hemisphere, over 2,000! Tyler loves whiskey so this was his treat, and we had a wonderful experience!




The next day, we spent our morning in nearby Georgetown. We explored the city a little bit and I fell in love with the beautiful Row Houses all around Georgetown and DC.


I also loved walking down the Georgetown Riverfront on the Potomac River! In the Spring, all of the flowers are blooming beautifully.

This AMAZING place was an absolute MUST DO in Georgetown. Per their website, Dog Tag Bakery‘s goal, “is to build a bridge to business employment and a productive civilian life for returning veterans with disabilities and caregivers that have served our country so well.” They do this by providing an education and employment through a work-study program through Georgetown University. HOW AMAZING IS THAT? Get a pastry and coffee to support a good cause!


Ah, so how do you  choose between two great cupcake shops!? These two shops are totally different, so I’m going to give you the skinny on both of them!


Baked and Wired is an adorable cupcake shop located in a gorgeous section of Georgetown! The atmosphere is really chill, and the service is so friendly. I’m obsessed with their design and that sign and that vine (didn’t mean to rhyme!). So what about the cupcakes?!


I had a Cherry Blossom Cupcake and a Unicorn Cupcake. The “cake” is moist, flavorful, and just the right amount of sweet – I LOVED THEM. The icing is thicker, but compliments the cupcakes well, and the flavor was A-MAZ-ING. The Cherry Blossom Cupcake has real maraschino cherries inside, so delicious.



PINK, PINK, PINK. This place is so adorable! I loved the pink aesthetic and all of the bling and sparkle! Georgetown Cupcakes were made famous from the show DC Cupcakes on TLC! So cool!


If you come here, prepare to wait in a line out the door! I pre-ordered my cupcakes so I had no wait. My only complaint is that there are only a few small tables with no outdoor or nearby seating.


SOOO… what about the cupcakes?! These have hands-down, the BEST frosting I’ve ever had! Light and fluffy and flavorful! Not to mention, look at how cute they are! I had Salted Caramel, Milk Chocolate Birthday, and Cherry Blossom. Check out their website here for daily and monthly specials!


So… which cupcakes did I like better?! In a PERFECT world, I would combine the cake of Baked and Wired with the frosting of Georgetown Cupcakes!



Is this not the cutest donut shop you’ve ever seen?! District Doughnut is maybe my favorite Donut Shop I’ve ever been to, and I’ve been to A LOT of them. The service was friendly and the donuts were delicious! And who doesn’t love turquoise!?


Not only was this donut INCREDIBLE, it was beautiful too! This was a Cherry Pie donut – the cherries were tart, the icing sweet, and the donut was fluffy and delicious!



In the middle of D.C. there is a huge church painted in all different colors of the rainbow, how cool is that?! This gorgeous place is called Blind Whino and they use the venue for different events; it also includes an art gallery!



IMG_7299 (1).JPG

I just had to see this awesome bridge on the Anacostia River at The Yards Park, right near Nationals Park! We had a blast walking around the Capitol Riverfront and sightseeing in this up-and-coming area!

We had some yummy ice cream cones from Ice Cream Jubilee while we sat by the Anacostia River! They have really unique and delicious flavors like Banana Bourbon Caramel and Honey Lemon Lavender!




In the afternoon we headed over to Union Market to taste-test local cuisine! We had great sandwiches from Red Apron! The market also has a waffles, oysters, ice cream, mediterranean… you name it!


Y’all know I love murals! The cutest ones are located on the side of Union Market!

Before dinner, I had to see the famous Union Station! Although we didn’t use the Metro while in DC, this is the main hub for it! This building is absolutely GORGEOUS and has a rich history. They provide tours – check their website for details in the link above!





For dinner we had a delicious Mexican meal at Mission in Dupont Circle – a really cool area with fun bars and restaurants! The margaritas were SO good!


Day four was a breakfast and travel day for us, but I couldn’t leave out this delicious place!



STUFFED FRENCH TOAST. I loved Founding Farmers , and it is right on Embassy Row in DC! We had breakfast before walking through the National Mall one last time before flying home! Tyler had a Founding Farmers breakfast while I chowed down on that stuffed french toast, yum!

I am really into travel reading, and so here are some of the sources I used to plan my trip! Hopefully they can help you plan yours as well!




Cleveland: A Local’s Guide



Welcome to my hometown of Cleveland, Ohio! Cleveland is a diamond in the rough, underrated, and often overlooked, yet, this place has some of the BEST food and the NICEST people in the country. My goal is to have you so excited to travel to Cleveland, the city that I love and will always call home. So I put together a Local’s Guide with MY favorite places in and around the city!


I know there are a million wonderful places, but these are just my favorites over the span of my lifetime, so far! The photos also span years, so this was a blog in the making for as long as I can remember! Come journey with me through Cleveland!



Welcome to My City! Here are some of my favorite things to do in Cleveland!



Tower City Center is one of my favorite places to start when I head downtown! First of all, it has the best & most accessible parking garage for going to Public Square and to Cleveland Cavaliers games. Second off, it is so beautiful! I love the architecture of this building. There is a food court and mall inside as well; make sure to make a wish at the Main Fountain!

Tower City Center decorated for Christmas 2017



Also downtown, The Arcade Cleveland is one my favorite places in Cleveland for photography! This building is absolutely beautiful, as you can see! I mostly stare with my jaw wide-open while taking photos!



The building to the left and behind the sign is the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and seeing as how we are the birthplace of rock and roll, this place is amazing! The building even was designed with a similar shape to the Louvre. I’ve been several times, and they always have new exhibits to explore, and of course, to rock out to! CLEVELAND ROCKS! This is definitely a MUST DO.



Lakewood Park has been one of my favorite places in Cuyahoga County for as long as I can remember. Going to see Lake Erie is a must, whether you go to Edgewater Park, Rocky River Park, or here @ Lakewood Park. Driving up Lake Road and seeing all of the beautiful homes on Lake Erie is already a treat, but going to the park is something special! You can walk down to the break-wall where a gorgeous view of downtown greets you. Watch the sunset on the new Solstice Steps; This is becoming a popular spot!




I LOVE CLEVELAND FOOD. If you really want to get a taste of Cleveland, you HAVE to go the West Side Market. We have a lot of European-food influences here, especially Polish food and German food. Cue pierogis (mashed potato and cheese stuffed pasta) and kielbasa (delicious sausage) … and if you haven’t had either, you need to! The market has tons of delicious foods and fresh fruit & vegetables! Not to mention Ohio City, where this is located, is booming with cute coffee shops and yummy breweries!





Mapleside Farms is the perfect place to go during the Fall in Ohio! Not only are the orchards gorgeous, but they have fun, family activities during the Autumn! They have a wonderful bakery and delicious apple cider! And the view… is… incredible! I love to go here to pick a pumpkin and have some hot apple cider from their orchard!




I actually went to the “A Christmas Story House and Museum” for the first time over this Holiday 2017, crazy right?! A Christmas Story is a famous holiday classic filmed right here in Cleveland,  Ohio! You may know it, as it replays a million times on television from Thanksgiving to Christmas. This was such a fun experience; the details make you feel like you’re truly in the movie yourself! They even had the Red-Rider BB Gun and the Leg Lamp. Bonus, you’re allowed to photograph and play with everything!



cleveland signs

@ North Coast Harbor

Something newer and really cool are the “Cleveland” script signs that are popping up all over the city! It is such a cool photo op and the views they provide are just gorgeous of my city! Have some fun exploring and finding them throughout! Locations:

  • North Coast Harbor
  • Tremont Abbey Ave Overlook
  • Edgewater Park
  • Euclid Beach Park
  • Cleveland Hopkins International Airport
@ Edgewater Park



I am a HUGE Cleveland & Ohio sports fan, and yes, I love Lebron James. I’ve always been “All In” for my city! In my own opinion, the heart of this city and it’s people are their  sports teams, and their loyalty to those teams (yes, even when we lose every game). Most people don’t get why we would still buy tickets or even like our teams despite all of the losses, stories, and jokes, but we do. Why? Because we’re Clevelanders. We don’t give up when things get hard and we don’t quit when it looks like there is no hope. We are BELIEVELAND, and proud.

So if you want a real Cleveland experience, head over to “THE JAKE” (Progressive Field) for a Cleveland Indians game, to “The Shoe” in Columbus, OH for an Ohio State Buckeyes game, to “The Q”, formerly “The Gund”, for a Cleveland Cavaliers game, or to First Energy Stadium for a Cleveland Browns game. The Dawg Pound (Browns) and Loudville (Cavs) is where you’ll meet the people who love this city, and they might make you love it too.

  • Great Lakes Science Center
  • Cedar Point – BEST ROLLERCOASTERS EVER! (Sandusky, OH)
  • Take a tour on Lolly the Trolley – a Cleveland tradition!


I could honestly write forever about all of the delicious food here in Cleveland, but I’m going to narrow it down to my absolute favorites. Cleveland is definitely a more chill town when it comes to dining, and I like it that way.


El Rodeo Middleburg – My favorite, hole-in-the-wall, chain restaurant. The SALSA is the most amazing salsa I’ve ever had, and I’m actually obsessed with it. The restaurant is super colorful and fun!


Luchita’s – The margaritas here are REAL, and they are REALLY good. I also love their taco platters and salsa as well. The owners are awesome!

Barrio – Barrio now has four locations, and this is the best taco spot, in my opinion, in Cleveland. The queso is AMAZING, and the margarita menu is great!

Coastal Taco – This is a newer spot in The Flats on the Cuyahoga River, and it is super yummy, but a little more expensive!

Coastal Taco

Nuevo Acapulco – If you want authentic Mexican food, this place is IT. Their margaritas are unreal, and the food is delicious! It is in North Olmsted and a bit out of the way, but totally worth it.



Colossal Cupcakes – This downtown Cupcake shop is just darling! With pink and gold everywhere, it’s definitely Insta-worthy. And the cupcakes are actually colossal, and yummy!

How perfect is this pink chair?!

Mitchell’s Ice Cream – A local fave, with a few locations! The flavors are unique and so yummy! You can even buy a pint of ice cream to go, yes please!

With my CAVS sprinkles!

Donuts – If you’d like to know where to find delicious donuts in Cleveland, check out my blog post here – Cleveland Donut Tour .



Mabel’s BBQ – Hometown favorite Michael Symon’s restaurant downtown serving up some DELICIOUS Cleveland favorites, amazing! He owns Lola on the same street as well.


RED – The Steakhouse – An amazing steak dinner for a special occasion!

MELT – The best grilled cheese you’ll ever have in your life, seriously.


Phoenix Coffee Co. – An ADORABLE new little coffee shop in Ohio City.




efourth.jpgIn general in Downtown Cleveland, E. 4th St is the place to be on the weekends! You can catch a show at The House of Blues or wander into some of these favorites:

  • Flannery’s Pub – The best Irish pub downtown!
  • Barrio – Margaritas, enough said.
  • The Corner Alley – Drinking and bowling? Yes please!

While you’re here, take a walk around Cleveland Public Square to sight-see and people watch!theflats.jpg

  • Margaritaville
  • Punch Bowl Social
  • Thirsty Dog Brewing Co.

Detroit Ave. in Lakewood is filled with 20-30 somethings on weekends and has some really cool and unique bars! Here are some of my favorites:

  • El Carnicero – yummy margs!
  • 16-Bit Bar and Arcade – drinks and arcade games!
  • Deagan’s Kitchen and Bar
  • Melt Bar and Grilled – grilled cheese and beer!


There are a TON of amazing boutiques and shops around Lakewood – check out Madison Ave or Detroit Ave in Lakewood. If you’re looking for an awesome take home souvenir, you’ve got to go to my two fave stores in Cleveland:


Multiple locations, but my favorite store is in Lakewood. They have tons of really cool Cavs, Browns, Ohio State, Indians, and other sports-affiliated apparel, and it has awesome art work! Pretty sure half of my closet is from here.



Situated Downtown off of E. 4th St, you can’t miss this place! They have a lot of cool Cleveland apparel and other items, and it’s a great stop before a game Downtown!


Wall art is starting to pop up around Cleveland and I am loving it! I love wall murals, and here are the ones I adore in Cleveland! These are located in Ohio City.

There are so many wonderful things about Cleveland, Ohio. I’ve only highlighted just a few of the things that I love the most. I really hope that I’ve inspired you to get to know CLE, travel there, and if you live there, to get out an explore! I’m so lucky to have grown up here, and I’m so proud to be from Cleveland.

Museum of Ice Cream – Miami



I dream, you dream, we all dream of ice cream! I recently had the opportunity to visit the Museum of Ice Cream (MOIC) at their Miami pop-up location! I wanted to share my photos, tips, and thoughts with y’all!


This IS a limited-time pop-up museum, however they have other locations that you can visit and often offer extensions on their museums! If you’re interested in jumping into a pool of sprinkles, tasting delicious ice-creamy treats, and bringing out your inner child,  then check out their website here for details of current locations!

Tickets were $38 and sell out quickly. Tickets are sent to your mobile device and cannot be bought at any location. Join me as I walk you through MOIC – MIAMI.



A pop-up milkshake diner with sparkling stools and a Gold Glitter floor? YES. The wonderful MOIC workers serve up milkshakes with whipped cream and a HOT PINK cherry on top! I had a chocolate milkshake and it was yummy!



Are you an ice cream fan? I am, and this room is filled them! Well, with Giant Ice Cream Cone Fans! They play fun upbeat music and if you so choose, the MOIC workers will teach you a little dance! Everything looks so good that you could just eat it up!
