Today’s my wedding day! There’s a big white tent waiting for a night full of celebration at my childhood home, my bridesmaids are about to come over to get ready with me all day, and at 6:00 PM, I get to marry the love of my life. How fun! Today is just the coolest. We feel so loved that our friends and family have traveled from near and far to celebrate with us in our hometown, Murfreesboro, Tennessee. To welcome everyone and give them an idea of some fun things to do over

I just finished a whirlwind visit to Havana, Cuba, on a people-to-people educational exchange with the Nashville Bar Association and Cuba Cultural Travel. Any time you go to a new country, you want the perfect souvenir to bring home, and Cuba is no different—the difference lies in the issue that Cuba has been largely cut off to the majority of US travelers for the past half century. There is a definite element of mystique and wonder about Cuba and the items you can bring back home with you! Top 5 Souvenirs from Cuba Everyone talks

I love being from the South—Middle Tennessee, to be specific. Sweet tea and fireflies fill warm spring evenings that friends and family spend lounging on the porch. It’s a slower, beautiful time. It’s also a time where visitors flood into the tiny town of Bell Buckle, TN, for family-friendly fun at the RC Cola and Moon Pie Festival. The RC Cola and Moon Pie Festival The RC Cola and Moon Pie Festival is a salute to Royal Crown Cola and Moon Pies. The festivities kick off on Saturday—always the 3rd one in June—with

Cartagena is a bustling, romantic, colonial town, and you want to be in the heart of the historic walled city. The best thing to do is get lost in the picturesque city streets, beat the midday heat by relaxing poolside with a novel (or tropical drink!) in hand, and head out again for a sunset promenade along the walls and a meal at one of the many amazing restaurants. We did this for one perfect week in Cartagena, and the glue that held each day together and made them even more wonderful was our

Fresh seafood, latin flavors, cheap eats, and fine dining — Cartagena is delicious. I’ve rounded up my favorite eats from a recent trip to Cartagena, Colombia. ¡Buen provecho! La Cevichería La Cevichería was our first meal out in Cartagena. Located in the San Diego neighborhood, La Cevichería was a fun spot for seafood lovers. We ordered ceviche (of course) and the seafood paella. Check out that lobster tail! El Boliche Cebicheria The NYTime’s was not messing around when they recommended El Boliche Cevicheria. The ambiance was intimate and trendy, and the fresh seafood

Welcome to Cartagena Cartagena’s historic center is a UNESCO World Heritage site and a photographer’s paradise—bougainvillea drips from colonial balconies, tropical plants fill lush gardens, and the city walls provide the perfect promenade to take in architectural beauty and ocean views. When we booked our vacation to Colombia, I knew this was the perfect opportunity to take our engagement photos in a unique yet timeless location. After scouring the internet and social media for some serious inspo and photographers in the region, I contacted MAT Fotografia and booked an engagement photo shoot. Engagement

In Cartagena, Colombia, people love their fritos — fried snacks! To get an introduction to food and culture in this Caribbean colonial town, we joined Cartagena Connections for their street food and street art tour. I had never done a food tour of this sort before (normally I just roll the dice and eat whatever yumminess I find from street vendors!), but this tour was particularly helpful in a number of unexpected ways: (1) walking around with a local guide helped me get a feel for what areas were safe; (2) the guide provided historical

Happy New Year! I couldn’t be more excited about 2017. I get married in 6 months, and my fiancé and I are going on a trip to Colombia in just one week. It will be our first time in continental South America and our first time traveling to a Latin American country together. 2017 is already looking great! As for 2016, it was a magical year. I went to 2 new countries, started this blog, got a new job, and best of all, got engaged to the love of my life! This post

Family vacation can be stressful—but not with Carnival Cruise! No matter what your interests are, there is something for everyone aboard the ship: pools, hot tubs, and slides; casinos, live performance shows, and nightlife; breakfast, lunch, and dinner—all included. And that’s just the beginning of the fun! When you’re on a cruise, each day brings a new adventure as you stop at various ports. I can’t think of an easier way to explore multiple cultures and destinations during a limited timeframe. My family went on a 5 day cruise with
