ANCIENT ROME

ANCIENT ROME

On our last full day in Rome, our travel agent scheduled a tour of the Colosseum and Roman Forum. Thankfully, the Pantheon was a convenient stop en route to our Colosseum tour meet up location. We arrived to that part of town early enough that we were able to walk right inside the Pantheon and look around. Here are a collection of photos from our day spent immersed in Ancient Rome!

POSITANO GUIDE

POSITANO GUIDE

Getting to see Positano in person was easily one of the most surreal experiences of my life. I’ve been determined to stop saying “some day” and start buying plane tickets and making plans. In this case we had to get a plane ticket, a train ticket, a subway ticket, and a bus ticket. The trip from Rome is not for the faint of heart but finding my feet in Positano made it all worth it. Chris and I decided it was our favorite day so that’s why I’m starting the guides here. Enjoy! Continue reading “POSITANO GUIDE”

WHY YOU SHOULD USE A TRAVEL AGENT FOR YOUR NEXT VACATION

Buongiorno from Tennessee! I have a dozen or so Italy posts to share with you but today I wanted to start by saying how seamless it was to plan our trip with a travel agent. Kelsey over at Hearten L+E put together our dream itinerary for a 10 day trip to Italy that came in UNDER BUDGET. That’s including flights, transfers, train rides, a cooking class, and tours in Venice, Rome, and Pompeii. Continue reading “WHY YOU SHOULD USE A TRAVEL AGENT FOR YOUR NEXT VACATION”

RHYTHM & ROOTS 2019

RHYTHM & ROOTS 2019

Bristol’s Rhythm & Roots Reunion is a music and art festival held every 3rd weekend in September on the state line between Tennessee and Virginia. Since we’ve lived in Bristol for the last 7 years we’ve been quite a few times and seen incredible headliners and talented artists from all over the world. One year my sister set up an art tent to sell her pottery which gave me a unique opportunity to see the festival from the other side. This year was much more relaxed because we decided to go for one day instead of all 3. Continue reading “RHYTHM & ROOTS 2019”

GRAZE BURGERS

GRAZE BURGERS

Girls night out has been scheduled at Graze for months now and after 2 failed attempts the third time was the charm! I’m excited to see how downtown Sevierville looks in the near future. How great would it be to have more restaurants and maybe even (Heaven help us) a brewery? Continue reading “GRAZE BURGERS”

WELCOME TO MASHVILLE

WELCOME TO MASHVILLE

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 birthday boy so we headed to Peabody and 6th for a tour of Ole Smoky’s newest location- affectionately referred to as “Mashville”. Continue reading “WELCOME TO MASHVILLE”
