Good Morning from Pocono Manor Resort!

Good morning from the snowy Pocono Mountains! We’re being hosted this weekend by The Inn at Pocono Manor, and it’s so festive and Christmassy here. They’re all decked out for the holidays, and every view out every window is snow-covered mountains and trees and stone buildings. When we were invited to experience the resort and...

Longwood Gardens Nightscape + Beer Garden

Last Wednesday night, my husband and I got to experience Nightscape — a light and sound experience that made its debut along with the new Beer Garden at Longwood Gardens. With the exception of Christmastime, when the trees throughout the Gardens are decorated with thousands of tiny twinkle lights, the Gardens have always been quiet after dark. With Nightscape, guests can enjoy wandering the Gardens after dark because...

Good Morning from Pittsburgh!

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...

Explore Gettysburg #GoNative

We arrived at the Federal Pointe Inn on a chilly Friday afternoon in February and entered through the lobby of what was once the back of a school. We were unsure of what to expect, but we were greeted by a charming hotel that boasts modern amenities while preserving the integrity of the 100-year-old building. It is truly a masterful renovation. We...

Things To Do With Kids in Cape May

A few weeks ago, we enjoyed a short family vacation in Cape May, New Jersey. Cape May is one of the prettiest towns on the Jersey shore, and it’s definitely one of the quieter beaches. Many families like to stay in Ocean City or Avalon, but I’m quite fond of the Victorian charm you can only...

Blogger Beach Bash at The Golden Inn

Earlier this week, we had one last hurrah to celebrate the end of summer. Our family attended the Blogger Beach Bash at the Jersey shore. I’d been looking forward to this trip for weeks. For the past few summers, we haven’t had a chance to get to the beach, and I’ve been anxious to spend...

Our Summer Vacation in the Poconos: Vacation Rentals at Lake Naomi Club

After discovering the Lake Naomi Club on a press trip last spring, we decided to rent a home in the community and spend a week exploring the Poconos and hanging out with friends. We rented through Lake Naomi Realty, and the experience was super easy. I like how the real estate agent handled all the...
