Yes, we’re traveling again. My husband went to college in western Pennsylvania, and his parents grew up in the Pittsburgh area, so he’s been wanting to bring us out here to show us around for years. Recently he got it in his head that he wanted to take our son to a Pirates-Phillies game, so when we discovered that we were free this weekend, and it’s the weekend the Phillies are in Pittsburgh, we decided to make a weekend of it.
It’s been a few weeks since we went to Cape May, and we’re already onto our next family vacation, but I don’t want to forget to tell you about it! We had a great time and truly got to relax. This trip was 100% unsponsored family time, and we had a blast. In fact, I couldn’t even get online half the time so that made it easy to unplug. It was a spontaneous trip. We often visit Ocean City, where
We are spending a few days in Baltimore as guests of the Four Seasons (more about that later!!) but last night we were on our own for dinner, and after consulting the concierge we made reservations at Talara — “a Latin Fusion restaurant featuring Baltimore’s only Seviche Bar and a full menu of dinner offerings, conveniently located in the heart of Baltimore’s exciting Harbor East neighborhood within walking distance to the Inner Harbor” — according
During our visit to Lancaster County last weekend, we found this little gem in the heart of downtown Lancaster — John J. Jeffries Restaurant. John J. Jeffries is a restaurant I would drive an hour to patron. Located inside the The Lancaster Arts Hotel, the ambience is lovely.

When my dear friends, Emily and Cooper of The Motherhood, invited me to visit Cape May for a Mom Blogger Retreat, I knew it was a trip I didn’t want to miss, but I had no idea what a gift it would turn out to be. I grew up going to the beach often — Virginia Beach, to be exact. My grandparents lived nearby and we would often stay with them, but many summers my parents rented a hotel
Evidently, the Traverse brought the rain, and took it back with it. This gloomy weather seems to be letting up, now that my fun car is gone. At least I got a real sense for how it operates on slick surfaces. I even got to test out the heated seats this morning, once I figured out that one button was actually COOLING the seats, which is a really awesome feature for the summertime heat, especially considering how hot leather seats
Alternatively titled, A Tale of Forsaken Chocolate Lava Cake. Two years ago I had the privilege of attending the very first Mom Blogger Mixer, compliments of Maria Bailey and Walt Disney World. It was a whirlwind of a weekend, and the last night we were treated to dinner at the California Grill — an acclaimed restaurant atop the Contemporary Hotel, overlooking the Magic Kingdom. Dining at California Grill is an experience everyone should have at least once.
