I discovered I was gluten intolerant after a trip to Italy in 2019 and since then I’ve been highly selective about what and when I’m willing to “risk it for the biscuit”. I prefer pastry over bread, cookies, or cakes but it can’t be just any pastry. I’m talking about the kind that would make […]
October is finally here which means Oktoberfest is almost over! It ends on Sunday the 6th but don’t worry if you can’t make it to Munich this year. Knoxville has the best place to celebrate Oktoberfest (in a CASTLE no less) and I’ve got pictures to prove it.
I am thrilled to share that we celebrated not one but two special occasions last weekend in Nashville. I graduated with my Master’s Degree as a Family Nurse Practitioner from Vanderbilt and on the same day Chris turned 30! After graduation we were looking for a place to escape the pouring rain and toast to […]
The Bristol Hotel is Bristol’s first ever boutique hotel and its also home to Lumac, Bristol’s first ever rooftop bar. That’s more excitement than our little town has seen since the Battle at Bristol was hosted at Bristol Motor Speedway back in 2016. After weeks of traveling all over East Tennessee, I finally got the […]
Nashville is one of my favorite places to visit but did you know there is a gorgeous vineyard waiting for you a few miles south of Music City?
Brunch spots are hard to come by in my neck of the woods so I was thrilled to try out Brick & Spoon. It’s tucked away on Community Center Drive next to Walden’s Landing.

Dollywood’s DreamMore Resort provides an opportunity for park goers and visitors to “stay and play” in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. Their in-house restaurant, Song & Hearth, serves up casual elegance that will make you feel right at home and the best part is that no one has to fight over who cleans the dishes. I was […]
If there’s one thing I know, it’s good donuts. I have favorite donut shops in multiple cities across the U.S. and zero shame. So you know that I have to share with you lovely folks when I find a winner and Five Daughters definitely stacks up. Bring your daughters, your friends, and your acquaintances but […]
We were fortunate enough to find ourselves in sunny Florida for Thanksgiving visiting family. As I’m writing this snow is falling on the ground outside in Tennessee which has me wishing I was back on the beach! While we were there we discovered yet another reason to be grateful that Tampa is just a short […]
Our trip to New York City was in honor of my friend Hannah’s upcoming nuptials but she was kind enough to let us go inside Ladurée to sample their infamous macarons. They were every bit as delicious as I imagined they would be! I hope to one day visit their original store in Paris as […]
