    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…

    Pit Stop in Asheville

    Alex and I went down to Clemson this weekend for a football game (with our N-95 masks)! We stopped by Asheville on the way back for just about a day and tried quite a few new-to-us places so I thought I would share our experience. FYI, there is a county-wide mask mandate for all indoor spaces at this time. Rosetta’s Kitchen & The Buchi Bar I had Rosetta’s Kitchen bookmarked on Yelp for the longest time because we love The Buchi kombucha. So when my friend Nicole suggested Rosetta’s Kitchen for lunch, I said yes immediately! Rosetta’s has vegan soul food made with locally sourced ingredients. We started with Vegan…

    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…

    What to Do in Charleston, SC

    Hi, friends! After my recent trip to Charleston, I wanted to share a list of things to do (besides eating) while visiting Charleston because after two trips to the city, I am an expert. Just kidding. This post is in no way original but I hope my experiences and opinions help you in building your itinerary. Take a Picture with Pineapple Fountain Considering pineapples are symbols of hospitality and wealth often associated with Charleston, the Pineapple Fountain is pretty iconic. Snap some photos with the famous pineapple! Your kiddos (or yourself?!) can play in the fountain! You can even get married at the fountain, it turns out! Visit Rainbow Row…

    What to Do and Where to Eat in Beaufort, NC

    Hi, friends! A couple of weekends ago, Alex and I had a short trip to Beaufort, NC (pronounced “bow-fort”; not to be confused with Beaufort, SC, which is pronounced “b-yew-fort”). It was my first time going to the beach in years, and Beaufort was just lovely. Named “American’s Favorite Town,” Beaufort has both small town charm and rich history, not to mention the waterfront views and amazing food! If you are considering a low-key weekend getaway, I definitely recommend heading out to the coast! In today’s post, I am sharing everything we did and ate.
