    My 30th Birthday Trip to Boston

    Last weekend, I went to Boston for a short weekend trip and came back as a thirty-year-old and with a new found love for Boston! Alex surprised me with this trip for my 30th birthday though he did tell me the destination a week or two prior so I could pack appropriately and add a few “must” places on our itinerary. We were in Boston from Saturday morning to Monday evening, and we got to do almost everything on our list! Having another day would have been even better but I’m happy with how much we got to do this time around. Boston is a perfect weekend trip destination if…

    Our Charleston Trip 2022

    Hi, friends! After our trip to Charleston last year, I wrote about what we did and what we ate during our stay. Alex and I spent this past week-ish in Charleston and had the best time so naturally, I had to share more on the blog! Where We Stayed We split our stay between two places during our five-day stay in Charleston. For the first half of the trip, we stayed at the Francis Marion Hotel in historic downtown. To be frank, we loved staying downtown but not this hotel in particular. While we knew it was an older hotel, we were a bit disappointed when we arrived. The lobby…

    Cherry Blossom Weekend in DC

    Hi, friends! I took a short break from Instagram for about the last week and a half so writing this blog post makes me feel like I’m almost resurfacing to social media, considering that I haven’t shared anything on any social media platform during this time. I have deleted Instagram a few times before, especially when my anxiety was pretty high last year, but I have never gone for this long without having Instagram since I first made an account probably back in 2012 or something. To be honest, I have been loving life without Instagram and am debating even to this moment if I should download the app again……

    Weekend in Dupont Circle, DC

    Last weekend, I was in DC for a wedding. While there was a wedding-related activity each day of the weekend, we had to fill the rest of the weekend and I thought I would share what we did, where we went, and of course, what we ate! This was my first time spending lots of time in Dupont Circle, and I loved how the whole neighborhood is very walkable with lots of things to do and eat. COFFEE & SWEETS Three Fifty Bakery & Coffee Bar – This was one of the coffee shops in walking distance from our Airbnb. We didn’t try the baked goods since we had brunch…

    Everything We Ate in Charleston, SC

    Hi, friends! Better late than never, right? Here’s a post on everything we ate during our trip to Charleston last month. I didn’t title this post “what you should eat in Charleston” since there is an overwhelming number of great restaurants in Charleston, many of which I have yet to try. If you’re considering any of the places we went to, I hope my “review” is helpful! If you are looking to visit Charleston this summer, I recommend making reservations for a few spots you really want to visit. When we were coming up with an itinerary the week before our trip, a lot of the recommended places were booked…
