Weekend Adventures: Asheville

at

We had the absolutely most amazing time in Asheville, NC!!! So much so that Tyler wants to move there now… ?I booked our Asheville trip pretty last minute. I pounced on the idea of a weekend getaway and had heard lots of great things about the town. Also, I selfishly wanted time with Tyler to myself (aka: no video games!). This was our first experience with Airbnb and definitely not…

Best Beaches in North Carolina

If you met me, you probably would never be able to tell I grew up in New Jersey. North Carolina has my heart through and through. Depending on what mood I’m in, I could either drive 3 hours to the mountains or 3 hours to the beach! On the topic of beaches… North Carolina is home to some of the most beautiful beach destinations in the United States. Pack…

Weekend Adventures: Ocean City, NJ

I grew up in New Jersey and try to visit my home state every now and then. Until recently, I hadn’t visited New Jersey in over a year so this trip was long overdue!

In statistics, driving is more dangerous, with more than 5 million accidents in a year compared to 20 accidents in flying.The probability that you will be in a plane incident is…

Weekend Adventures: Philadelphia, PA

I often complain about my 20-minute commute to work but it takes my parents OVER AN HOUR each day to get from Jersey to Philly. Their commute absolutely stresses me out! It can be difficult and expensive driving in Philly, so most people depend on the speed line or train for transportation. Monday morning, I accompanied my mom on her ride into the city. When I lived up North…

Are You a Wanderer of the World?

at

When I lived in New Jersey, I always wanted to get out. Others had been so content about living in our small town and could never understand my longing for more. When I finally moved to North Carolina at eighteen, I was ecstatic over a whole-nother world to explore. I traveled up and down the state, from mountains to the shore, until I had nowhere left to go. Six…

Traveling is SO important for a person to grow and learn. You gain more…

Weekend Adventures: High Point University

at

This past weekend, I took a trip to my alma mater with my Jord watch. I graduated from High Point University this previous May and feel lucky to live close enough that I’m able to take day trips. As much as I love my job and new city, I can’t help but miss college!! High Point University gave me the best four years and I’m forever thankful…
