Nashville, Tennessee: Is It The Ten I See?

Nashville, Tennessee: Is It The Ten I See?

Today we’re going to chat Nashville. I visited back in August and it’s taken me so long to finally sit down and write a post about it. When I told anybody I was visiting Nashville, I was typically met with one of two responses: 1) “Oh I want to go there!” or 2) “Oh my sister’s boyfriend’s (fill in the blank) cousin just had her bachelorette party there!” What I didn’t realize was that Nashville, Tennessee must be on it’s way to the official bachelorette party capital of the world, if it’s not there already.

Sunshine Chaser's Guide to San Antonio

Sunshine Chaser's Guide to San Antonio

Summertime is one of the best times to visit Texas, especially the city of San Antonio. Not only are our San Antonio Spurs usually in the NBA playoffs, but there is always something fun and exciting to do in the Alamo city. Since I started my Digital PR business, I get to attend a lot of events around town. You could say I know a lot of the hip and cool places to hang out. So, if you’re planning on coming on down to Texas, preferably San Antonio, here are some things you can do for under $20!

5 Senses of San Francisco

5 Senses of San Francisco

I’m here today to attempt to explain why I love San Francisco. I visited San Francisco in July of 2013 back when Paul graduated from college and I was stuck being a fifth year senior. It was one of the tougher mental points in my life and this was the first trip I took that made me realize travel is a fabulous way to get through those tough times. I insist to this day, even though the trip was almost three years ago, that San Francisco just had a certain feel to it. I love this feeling so much that just being in the airport for a layover (pre cross country road trip) was enough to make me happy, I kid you not. So I thought it would be fun to take you through my five senses of San Francisco.

US Road Trip Stop: Fort Collins, Colorado

US Road Trip Stop: Fort Collins, Colorado

We’ve just finished touching on how Colorado is the new place to be. Most of the time I hear people talk about Denver, Boulder, or maybe Colorado Springs. I had heard of Fort Collins before because I follow Heidi on all forms of social media, but I was also trekking to Denver with a lover of Fort Collins so a visit was in order. But I had to wonder: were there really a lot of things to do in Fort Collins? It is pretty much a straight shot north from Denver and if traffic is kind, it’s only about an hour away. You know I love my road trip stops and for (what I thought was) a smaller town, we had a full day there and I would go back next time I find myself driving through the area!

Looking to Move Cities? Questions to Ask

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that Denver has been voted time and time again as one of the best places to live in the United States. I’d by lying to you if I haven’t been on the bandwagon for the past couple of years, waxing poetic about this Colorado dreamland that I might someday move to. Then my grad school officemate from the very first day set about convincing me to move to Denver. Since that day, I’ve stayed at her family’s place twice (Hi, Becca!). So recently, I’ve been doing quite a bit of thinking about whether to put it on “the list” or not. I’ve written in the past that when I visit a place, my brain goes right to analyzing whether or not I would want to live there. Call it a case of itchy feet, a case of graduating in one month (exactly!), or a combination of the two…but that’s been the case for all of my travels in the past year. At least. So I thought it would be fun today to share what kind of questions I ask myself and see how Denver rank on the list.

Steps to Solo Travel: Adventures in Solo Dining

“Are you waiting for anybody else?"“…Nope! Just a table for one, please."

I first uttered that response during my “spring break” trip to Denver. I wasn’t traveling solo and, in fact, I was staying with a great friend and her family! I really had this restaurant I wanted to try and it wasn’t on anybody else’s agenda. But I heard some pretty fantastic things about the milkshakes here…so missing out was NOT an option. Simple solution: I went by myself!
