    16 Shenandoah National Park Cabins Perfect For Your Next Getaway

    When it came to my first trip in this new era of travel, I knew I didn’t want to mess around with safety.

Just a 2-hour drive from our town, totally self-contained, and in the middle of nature. Honestly, what is there not to love? Probably the biggest struggle in planning the whole thing was actually picking out which cabin that we wanted to rent! Because let me tell you, there are a LOT of seriously amazing cabins in and around Shenandoah National Park that…

    Captivated by Captiva Island, Florida

    Disclosure: My trip to Captiva Island was sponsored by the Ft Myers Sanibel Tourism Board. Is there a place in the world that you return to over and over and over again?

Just off the coast of mainland Florida, this little island just 1.2 miles square is the place where my family would return every year, year after year. It was the place where my mother, sister, and I would take girls trips to chill by the pool, eat delicious food in fun environments, and…

    Disclaimer: I was a guest of ScubaTony for a full week of Cozumel scuba diving. As always, all opinions are my own.

Cozumel scuba diving will spoil you for the rest of your life.

    SSI Advanced Open Water Course with ScubaTony in Cozumel, Mexico [Review]

    Disclaimer: I received my SSI Advanced Open Water Course, as well as 3 days of fun dives, from ScubaTony in exchange for my honest review. As always, all opinions are my own.

I took my Open Water Course in Cozumel just over a year ago, and when I was looking at where to do my SSI Advanced Open Water certification, I knew almost immediately that I wanted to return to Cozumel. But what dive shop to…
