    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.

I don’t know about you but I am excited to have a fancy cocktail at home and to know that this will bring an extra revenue for so many restaurants bars struggling to stay afloat. In this blog post, I rounded up the places throughout the Triangle offering to-go cocktails currently (Tuesday evening). I’ll continue updating this post as I learn of more!

    North Carolina Small Business Holiday Gift Guide – Updated 2021

    Hi, friends! I am so excited to finally share my holiday gift guide! Gift giving is my love language, and I kid you not when I say I have been working on this holiday gift guide since last year. When I launched my website at the end of 2019, I knew I wanted to write a gift guide featuring small/local businesses, and I have been adding and updating the list throughout 2020.
