Restaurants: Road Trip Style

I love food. There’s really no ifs, ands, or buts here. I feel like a big part of a trip is eating at new places. The Greek in me insists that the best way to get to know a culture is through food. Taking people to restaurants I love is part of my love language.Continue reading “Restaurants: Road Trip Style”

May 2022 in Books

As you all know, May was our RV Roadtrip Adventure. I came prepared… with a ton of books. I am proud to say that I did finish (almost) all the books I brought on the adventure (although I finished off the last one back at home). One of them ended up being one my absoluteContinue reading “May 2022 in Books”

Road Trip Stop #5: Olympic National Park

We stayed 3 days and 3 nights at the Sol Duc Hot Springs Resort. Maybe I was spoiled on our first two stops but this trip has taught me that I only want to go to RV sites that have full hook ups. Not being able to “dump” (pun intended) whenever you want it aContinue reading “Road Trip Stop #5: Olympic National Park”

Road Trip Stop #4: Portland, OR… I mean, Estacada, OR

This was our shortest stay. We spent 2 days and 2 nights at the Milo McIver State Park. This was another state park we came to so Jacob could play disc golf. It’s only about 40 minutes from Portland, so I couldn’t complain. The property itself wasn’t my favorite. It was very much a campgroundContinue reading “Road Trip Stop #4: Portland, OR… I mean, Estacada, OR”

Road Trip Stop #3: Roseburg, OR

We stayed at Whistler’s Bend County Park Campground for 5 days and 5 nights. I am not going to lie. When we pulled into this campground, after our first 2 Private RV spots, I was skeptical. When I found out that neither of us had service (therefore, we couldn’t use Jacob’s Hot Spot for wifiContinue reading “Road Trip Stop #3: Roseburg, OR”

Road Trip Stop #2: Gold Beach, OR

We spent 4.5 days and 4 nights at Turtle Rock RV Resort in Gold Beach, Oregon. Hi. This place has private decks with hot tubs on them. That’s all. That’s the sell. Go book a spot now. They even have cottages/cabins in case you don’t have a trailer! There was a short walk over toContinue reading “Road Trip Stop #2: Gold Beach, OR”

Once Upon a Time, there was a girl with no chill and lack of understanding her limits and boundaries. So her husband planned a month long road trip in the hopes of forcing her to chill and actually set real boundaries. And they lived happily ever after. The end.

[jk it’s not the end guys] It’s March 2020. The United States is in a lockdown that we thought would be 2 weeks. You mean I don’t have to sit in traffic for 2 weeks? Sign me up. I remember asking my fiance (now husband) if he thought it would last until Memorial Day. HeContinue reading “Once Upon a Time, there was a girl with no chill and lack of understanding her limits and boundaries.

Cooking: One Pan, Two Plates

Have you guys ever been to a Therapy store? It’s one of my favorite and least favorite places. That store does not contain a single thing you need but is filled with everything you could possibly need all at the same time. I’ve spent way too much money there but it’s all brought me joyContinue reading “Cooking: One Pan, Two Plates”

January 2022 in Books

Last year, I had a book goal in mind. I had wanted to really start reading again, like I used to so many years ago. I thought I’d start small. 20 books for the entire year sounded extremely reasonable. I ended up reading 50. I wrote about my reading hiatus late last year, when IContinue reading “January 2022 in Books”

Cooking: The Forest Feast Mediterranean

Let me just get this out right now. This cookbook author has the most beautiful books you’ll ever see in your entire life and you should just buy them now. You can buy them all here. I bought her book (The Forest Feast) a couple years ago (and will definitely cover that at a futureContinue reading “Cooking: The Forest Feast Mediterranean”
