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  ...

Pittsburgh’s Whiskey Moon Boutique

I love a good boutique. That’s a known fact about me. I’m all for shopping at small stores with unique clothes. Anytime I travel, I’m always looking for somewhere new to shop. And I’ve found some amazing places but back here in Pittsburgh, there are just as many cute, local stores to get a boutique fix. The latest one I’ve found is called Whiskey Moon and it’s a cute, trendy store specializing in women’s clothing, home decor, accessories, and  ...

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  ...

Adventures, Just for the Weekend

Weekend in Pittsburgh

If you missed my Instagram Stories this weekend, you’d know that my college friends came to visit me this weekend in my hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I kind of felt like the Bachelorette doing a hometown date. I’m the only one in my group of friends from Pennsylvania and for four years, I’ve told them about how much I loved the city and all the things I loved to do and all the places I love to eat. After graduation and before we all branch out towards the rest of  ...

New Adventure: National Cherry Blossom Festival

This past weekend, a group of friends and I drove up to Washington D.C. for the annual National Cherry Blossom Festival. The Cherry Blossom Festival has so many events that a weekend is hardly enough time to devote to every activity. There is an annual parade, fireworks, and celebrations of United State’s relationship with Japan. You can also walk around the National Mall and the rest of the monuments and look at all the beautiful blossoming trees. You can also rent boats and paddle  ...
