2019 Travel Recap

The week after Christmas brings about time for reflection.  We start to think about what the year entailed and what we want to manifest for 2020.   This time last year, I was manifesting being intentional in all aspects of my life.  While there are still some areas of my life that could use a little more intention... one area that was not lacking was travel.  I knew I wanted to travel more in 2019 and travel I did.  Some of these places I recapped on my blog, others I just shared on my social media.  I typically write more for [...]

Getaway Dallas

*My stay at the Getaway Dallas was covered by Getaway, but the opinions are my own*  I am back from my last trip of 2019! If you have been following along all year you know I've been on quite a few.  Check out the recaps here.   This one was totally different than the others though, it involved a road trip to the middle of nowhere and a stay in a small cabin.   Can I just say that I do NOT do the outdoors, camping or ruffing it.  It is not my ministry!  I stepped outside of my box and decided [...]

Weekend in Beaumont Texas

So hear me out.  I spent the weekend in Beaumont, Texas.   On purpose.  AND had an amazing time!  Most Houstonians know about Beaumont, it's the smaller city to the east of us that we pass on our way to Louisiana.  I honestly had never stopped in Beaumont or even thought about it.   So when the Beaumont Convention and Visitors Bureau invited me to come explore the city I jumped at the chance to see what the city has to offer.  From the food to the attractions, Beaumont really has a lot of great stuff! Check out my recap of my [...]

Guide to Lake Tahoe

Life got a little busy for me and I had not been able to finish the recap of my Reno/Tahoe trip! Reno was great, but Tahoe was next level!  I have never considered myself much of an outdoorsy person so I did not know what to expect from Tahoe.  I mean there is a lake and mountains, so I expected my visit to be all about the outdoors.   Once again our guides curated experiences for us that fit our needs.  For me, that meant a trip to North Tahoe where I got to experience great food, views and experiences.  Check [...]

Guide to Reno Nevada

*This trip was sponsored by the Reno Airport Services Corporation. All opinions are my own* A few weeks ago, I received an invite from the Reno Airport Services Corporation to visit and see that all Reno and the surrounding cities had to offer!  Now I must admit, I thought it could have been a scam, but once  I learned that United Airlines recently added a year around direct flight from Houston to Reno that the team wanted to showcase! For followers of my blog, you know this has been my year of travel so who am I to say no [...]

What to See in Charleston

Whenever I would say I wanted to visit Charleston people would ask me why?! It was not New York City, or LA or even Miami what was the attraction?  Well... it all started with a little television show called Southern Charm (do not judge me!).  I watch just about everything on Bravo so this show was no different.  From the show, I learned how beautiful Charleston is.  I did a little more research and learned more about all of the African American history in Charleston and decided that I MUST GO! I shared with you what I ate, but now [...]

Guide to Taipei

I am back from my first visit to Asia and of course I have so much to share!  I had the privilege of traveling to Taiwan for work.  Since this was not a personal vacation, I did not plan out my own itinerary or do much research before heading to Taiwan.  With that, I really went in to this trip with no expectations and that honestly made the whole experience better!  I compiled the highlights of my trip in to this one LONG post as a Guide to Taipei! What to See & Do Taipei 101 Once the largest building [...]

Visiting Fredericksburg Texas

I have spent most of my life living in the great state of Texas, but only recently discovered the Texas gem that is Fredericksburg, Texas!  This German town is right in the middle of the state in Texas Hill Country.  In recent years, it has attracted visitors from the state's larger cities due to it's small town charm, German cuisine and of course the wineries!  Just a four hour drive from Houston, I took my first trip to Fredericksburg last month and per usual... I have a lot to say about Visiting Fredericksburg Texas! Where to Stay Our cute [...]

A Few More Stops from Los Angeles

The Los Angeles recap continues!  There were a few more spots I visited that you should definitely include on your next weekend trip to Los Angeles. The Broad Visiting a museum has quickly become one of my favorite things to do when I travel.  This go around, my friend recommended that we visit the Broad, a museum focused on pop culture that is typically free! You can reserve a time ahead of time online.  To avoid the lines, we opted to pay for the special exhibition "Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power 1963-1983."  As you [...]
