48 Hours in Maine

This past month, we got to spend two perfect days in Maine. To be totally honest, I had no idea what to expect from Maine. It wasn't somewhere that's ever been super high on my travel bucket list, but when we were going to New England, we decided to...

Our Guide to Christmas at Disneyland

Christmas is our favorite time of year. We love it more than any other holiday combined, and start decorating on Halloween (no exaggeration – we’re those crazy people). We used to make yearly trips to Disney World every Christmas, but for the past f...

Our Guide to Newport, Rhode Island

Fancy feeling like a Kennedy for the day, or just want to eat some great seafood in a charming town? Then there's the perfect spot to add to your bucket list. Newport, Rhode Island is the idyllic New England coastal town that I've been dreaming of, ...

Our Guide to Boston

Cue the Augustana music, because we just got back from Boston, and I’m still dreaming of the lobster rolls. For some reason, in all the trip planning I’ve done over the years, Boston has never felt particularly high on the list. We added it as a las...

Fall Foliage in New Hampshire

I’ve spent years, dreaming of fall, while living in Texas, where most days are over 85 degrees in October. I’ve sweated it out in long-sleeves and scarves in the Texas heat, because darn it, I’m going to dress seasonally appropriately, even if globa...

The Craftsman Bar at Disney’s Grand Californian

I don’t know if there’s much that I love more in this world than good food and quality made cocktails. If you add Gilmore Girls, travel, and my dog to the list, you basically have all the things that make me happy. So when I heard that The Craftsman...

Autumn in Woodstock, Vermont

I’ve dreamed of going to New England in the fall since my first of many watchings of Gilmore Girls. I loved the look of the quaint towns and the vibrant colored leaves and wanted to feel fall weather, instead of the still 90-degree weather we’re hav...
