First stop on our 8 day cruise: St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands! Originally settled by the Dutch in the 1600s, St. Thomas was a picture-perfect slice of paradise. While here my family enjoyed a snorkeling expedition with Captain Nautica through Carnival.
My family decided we were long overdue for a good old-fashioned family vacation since we hadn’t been on one since.. well probably since before I started college. Once we determined this was in fact going to happen the reigns were handed over to me to plan.
This year I hosted my friend group’s second annual Christmas party. I love Christmas! I especially love Christmas parties- friends, food, merriment.. you can’t go wrong. This year I wanted something cozy and fun for my friends and I to enjoy so I went with a ‘Pancakes and Pajamas’ theme.
I spent a whirlwind 24 hours in the city of Nashville, Tennessee, at the beginning of October with two friends. Our #24hrNashvilleTakeover essentially morphed into a food tour because who doesn’t like food, right?
If you’re anything like me then you hang onto things, seemingly useless and insignificant things, as a means to ‘remember’ each moment. The problem comes in when you realize you have mountains of memories and no place to keep them. Enter the memory box. So, a year after returning from my trip to Greece, I … More I Made This: Memory Box
Epcot’s layout features 11 countries: Mexico, Norway, China, Germany, Italy, the United States, Japan, Morocco, France, United Kingdom, and Canada. We also just happened to be here during the International Flower and Garden Festival so there was no shortage of pretty blooms and crazy-artistic character shrubs. Needless to say, my day in Epcot did nothing … More Travel Photo Diary: Epcot
Getting to see The Wizarding World of Harry Potter was what I was looking forward to the most about my whole trip! Despite imagining myself as a wizard while attempting to beat the heat with glasses of butter beer, I still came home a muggle.
Universal is actually split into two parks: Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios. We only spent about half a day at Islands of Adventure, not that we couldn’t have spent more time there. Our main reason for going to the Universal parks at all was to experience the Wizarding World of Harry Potter… at least … More Travel Photo Diary: Universal Studios
Nothing says ‘the magic of Disney’ quite like Disney’s Magic Kingdom. We spent a very full and exhausting day walking around the park, taking pictures, riding rides, and treating ourselves to very tasty Dole Whips. It’s hard not to feel like a princess when you take so many pictures in front of a castle.
First stop on our Disney World vacation was Disney Springs, formerly known as Downtown Disney. Disney Springs is an outdoor shopping, dining, and entertainment complex at the Walt Disney World Resort in Bay Lake. Since our flight landed several hours before we could check in to our condo, we figured it was the perfect place to spend our … More Travel Photo Diary: Disney Springs
