• What does an awesome aunt like myself do when her teenage niece wants to visit? She takes her out for coffee and sweet treats before spending nearly two hours walking through one of the local cemeteries appreciating and photographing the old headstones and memorials. Some may consider this morbid but did you know cemeteries used to be a place where families would gather to relax and picnic? You could say they often resembled today's public parks.🌳

  • It's not often that my husband gets time off during the week on a beautiful day. Those of you who live in Ohio will understand what I mean by beautiful though others may question my sanity since it was only 43 degrees outside. But compared to the much lower temperatures from earlier in the week, today felt like a heat wave and we made the most of it by stopping by Brandywine Falls in Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Follow the signs from the parking lot to the boardwalk which ends at the falls. The view from the top of the falls is an easy walk and if you want to walk down some stairs (about 40 or so altogether) you can view the falls from closer to the base. Check out my story for a video of the falls. Have you been to Brandywine Falls or CVNP?

  • "I think one of the first things to go as people's lives start to go down is their dreams. Dreams should be the last thing to go - dreams are the things you go down with. If you're left clinging to a piece of driftwood in the middle of the ocean, I'd put on it the word dreams." ~ Kevin Costner
______________________________  Have you let go of your dreams? Or are you chasing them? I spent a lot of time thinking during my two week #vancamping trip. Thinking about my purpose in life. My dreams. Things that hold me back from reaching those dreams and fulfilling that purpose. As I walked along the beach, I thought of the little things that distract me from the big picture and keep me drifting, pulling me off course. I don't have all the answers but I did walk away knowing that I need to put God first and not keeping him in the backseat. I walked away inspired, more committed to get back on track, to get things done, stay focused and kick fear to the curb. I'm ready to live that Purpose and chase those dreams! Who's with me?

  • We stopped at the @pearlfryartopiarygarden on the last day of our van camping trip. I had hoped to meander the grounds with my husband but we got into a fight just as we pulled up so he wouldn't go with me. His loss. I wouldn't have missed the opportunity to explore. Walking along the grounds helped me calm down a bit so by the time I was back to the van, I was excited to share with my husband what he had missed. 😂😃 _____________________  Please tell me we're not the only ones to get on each other's nerves when road tripping.

  • Can I let you in on a little secret? My husband and I recently visited Key West and I didn't love it. But what I did enjoy was driving along the Overseas Highway and pulling off on the side of the road when it was permitted to photograph the pelicans, iguanas and beautiful turquoise water. I also enjoyed hanging out and relaxing in the @fl.stateparks along the way. Key West may not have been our cup of tea but there were plenty of other spots to explore and we'd love to return when some of the state park campgrounds reopen so we can explore more.

  • While browsing the internet for things to do near Jekyll Island, I ran across an article about tree spirits on St. Simons Island. Instantly intrigued I convinced my husband that we must stop to check them out. 
_______________________  Artist Keith Jennings carved about 20 faces into the trees of the island in the 1980's and while many are on private property, there are about 7-8 that can be seen around the island.
________________________  Local legend says that the faces on the trees immortalize local men who died in shipwrecks in shops built from the oak trees on St. Simons.
________________________  To locate the trees, stop at the @GoldenIsles Visitor Center for a tree map which will make them easier to find them.

  • I'm hooked on van camping. ❤ My husband and I may have just returned from our trip through the south but we're already planning our next trip. I can't help myself! How soon after a trip do you start planning (or dreaming of) your next one? 🚙🚦⛽
