A couple weekends ago, Nikki & I, along with a friend took a short trip down to Jacksonville, FL.

Top 5 Destinations on My Travel Bucket List

I think we all have bucket (or to-do lists), whether they’re in our head or written down. Some of us may have them more as a wish list rather than a list that we’ll actually cross off. I intend to visit every single one of mine (and document them here, of course). There are many … Read more Top 5 Destinations on My Travel Bucket List

This week in Atlanta Adventures

If you’ve spent any time reading this blog, you’ll know that I’ve been to Atlanta three times since April.
