Chapter Fifteen Travels: Hilton Head, SC

Featured Photo Outfit Details: Swimsuit • Hat Visit Now: The best times to visit are in the late spring and summer. Both have their advantages and disadvantages. In the spring, the island is much less crowded so there’s hardly a wait for restaurants and attractions and very little traffic. However, that’s considered the offseason, so some restaurants aren’t open, making the options a little limited. The summer has the opposite problems, everything is open, but since  ...

A Guide To Harrisonburg, VA

Recently, I went back to my college hometown to visit my Little (as in sorority Little). She’s just two weeks away from graduating (say it ain’t so) and I had to see her before then. I’ve been out of college for almost a year now and going back to my college town still feels like coming home. I wanted to share this sweet city in a mini travel guide.

Chapter Fifteen Travels: Phoenix, Tempe, and Scottsdale, Arizona

My first time off the East Coast! Prior to this, the most west I’ve ever been was Ohio. I know, not at all west. It was so fun getting to explore the desert especially when it was cold and wintery back home on the East Coast. I flew out to Tempe for a writing conference that was part of the course I’ve been completing to finish a book. Once the conference ended that weekend, I had the rest of my trip to find out why everyone goes west. And let me just say, now I know and  ...

Shop Small Business Saturday With Local Stores I’m Obsessed With

Small boutiques are my favorite places to shop. I love the unique clothes different stores have and that you can’t buy them at bigger, National chain stores. Clothing from small boutiques feels like wearing something special. Not only are their pieces cute, but they won’t be worn by everyone. So when someone asks when you got a dress or a skirt or a pair of shoes, you tell them and it’s like sharing a little secret. I’ve always been drawn to these kinds of stores so  ...

Chapter Fifteen Travels: Rhode Island

For a joint birthday weekend between me and my friend, I headed to Rhode Island. She’s finishing an engineering degree and I came for a visit. I’ve never been to the country’s smallest state (you can drive the length of it in about an hour and a half!) and I wasn’t sure what to expect. Honestly, I was kind of thinking Gilmore Girls, which is the only New England setting I can call to mind. It wasn’t exactly that, but I was surprised at the quaintness of the state.

Chapter Fifteen Travels: Charleston, South Carolina

It’s no secret that I’m a fan of adventure. I love to travel and see new places, try new things, see new beaches, eat at new restaurants. With a couple days off from work in late June, my mom and I tried to decide where to go away to. We threw around different places like Cape May, New Jersey, Ocean City Maryland, Philidelphia, Pennsylvania, and many others. But I was pretty set on Charleston. In the spirit of adventure, we bought some snacks at Target, got on the road (a long  ...
