Fourth of July in Grayton Beach

With everything being so different this year, David and I've cancelled most of our trips, and instead have been doing shorter road trips that we can drive to. We spent the long weekend for Fourth of July in one of our favorite places, Grayton Beach,...

Floating the River in Texas

I love most things about living in Texas. One of my favorite things though, is going to the Hill Country in the summer, and floating the river. You can rent tubes from tons of different outfitters, then tie them together for a leisurely float. We no...

Coffee at Magnolia Market

This past Saturday, we took a side-trip to Waco, Texas to visit Magnolia Market. David and I love renovating. Is that weird? We love seeing a space, and imaging what it has the possibility to be. This has led to many a Fixer Upper marathon. We dream...

New House: Dining Room

We have been in the middle of moving this past month, and with plenty of time on our hands due to stay-at-home orders, we've had plenty of time to start projects at our new house. One of the first places that came together was our dining room. We wa...

Our Favorite Stops on a Monorail Crawl

What’s a Monorail Crawl? Well, it’s a lot like a bar crawl - but classier, and everyone travels by Disney Monorail, so honestly, a lot safer too. The simple concept behind a Monorail Crawl is to stop at all the hotels connected by Disney Monorail (s...
