Sunday Stills

A little late, but I took them on a Sunday. That counts, right? After a dramatic turn of events during brunch, my friends and I took a stroll down the Riverfront and accidentally found the DuPont Environmental Education Center. It was closed, but that didn’t stop us from enjoying its beauty and serenity. – T…

Blogsgiving: The Conclusion

Visiting my mom’s side of the family for Thanksgiving is always one of the best weeks of the year for me. I have no commitments, and my parents do all the driving. So I can literally just relax, read, eat, and be merry. Thanksgiving Eve we did a crap-ton of shopping since our household was in…

Blogsgiving: What I Ate on the Road

It’s that time of year again. That time in which I spent way too much of my life riding in  a truck, eating too much fast food, energetically talking over my family as we catch up on stories from the last holiday together. Christmas is my ultimate favorite holiday, but Thanksgiving definitely gives it a run for…

Hays House: “A Collation of Desserts”

When I recently became interested in local tourism, I started following the Historical Society of Haford County Facebook page. Since Facebook picks and chooses what they want you to see (one of my least favorite changes over the years), I had never seen an actual event through the society until a few weeks ago when they…

Fall 2016 Bucket List

I am a fall enthusiast. I know pretty much everyone every says that, but I mean it. I love the crisp air, the knit sweaters, the cozy socks and boots, the scarves, the pumpkin spice everything, the apple cider … I can’t think off one thing I don’t like. And I’m sure we’ve all seen…

Friend dates and veggie sandwiches Thrift store and flea market wins Baby Sister’s sophomore year Fair Trade oven mitts Deciding to and mapping out my transition to natural hair…

Why Aldi is the bomb-diggety

When I was a kid, I was always excited when we took a trip to Aldi because going there meant we were getting some sort of German cookie for which my mother was feeling nostalgic (military family life) and because we had to jigsaw puzzle our loot into leftover boxes from the store. Now that I’m…

Farmers’ Market Opening Day!

Cold or no cold (weather and illness), nothing was going to stop me from making it to opening day of my local farmers’ market. I was under slept and under caffeinated, but the rush of pulling into my usual parking space and seeing the familiar scene of white tents and a meandering crowd was enough…
