A Very Boston Christmas: Kimpton Nine Zero Hotel

Although it may be cold, Boston during the Christmas season is one of the best times of year to visit. During my trip to my hometown I stayed at the Nine Zero Kimpton Hotel, which overlooks the Boston Common. The view of the Prudential Center and John Hancock tower overlooking the Christmas lights in the Common is beautiful. You can even see the Charles River and Cambridge in the distance! Seeing Boston all lit up with Christmas lights really brought some holiday cheer into my life!

This is hotel nestled in the BEST and busiest location in Boston. The boutique hotel has an old-timey charm, just like the city of Boston itself. One of my favorite things about this hotel is the eclectic artwork. The French Bulldog painting that was in my room reminded me of my college mascot, Rhett the Boston Terrier of Boston University. The interior design of this boutique hotel is very charming, and the attention is in the details such as textures and colors.

Salishan Resort Spa & Golf: Oregon Coast Vacation

Posted on 11

The Salishan Resort is the vacation everyone needs in their life. Relax by the Oregon coast and immerse yourself in the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest. This iconic resort is known for its gorgeous spa, 18-hole golf course, and relaxing beach views.

The Salishan Resort is located inΒ Gleneden Beach, OR. The resort itself is massive, and tucked away in the woods right by the ocean. The ambiance of the Salishan Resort and hotel is rustic chic. I loved the upscale aspect of the resort, while still maintaining that “summer camp” feel. The resort offers morning yoga, guided art walks, nature tours and more. There is something to do for everyone, and the environment was extremely family-friendly.

The best part about the Oregon coast is how close the forest gets to the ocean. The Salishan is tucked away in the woods with ocean views and oceanside golfing. The spa has a wonderful view of the bay. The scenery is relaxing and peaceful, and the resort goes above and beyond to make your stay a rejuvenating experience.

Cross Country Road Trip 2018: National Parks & Destinations

Welcome to my blog post about my cross country road trip to the United State’s National Parks. My husband, dog and I traveled from North Carolina and made it to our destination in Washington in April. I highly recommend hitting these parks up in late April because there was barely anyone there! We traveled through so many places I never even thought I would visit. Cross country road trips are on everyone’s bucket list and I’m so glad we had this opportunity to see America’s most stunning sights. Here is the full list of the places we hit up along the way: Georgia, New Orleans (LA), San Antonio (TX), Caverns of Senora (TX), Carlsbad Caverns (NM), White Sands (NM), Antelope Canyon (AZ), Lake Powell (UT), Monument Valley (UT/AZ), Zion National Park (UT) and Mesa Verde (CO). I hope you enjoy our photos from this trip. Scott and I went all out and bought a new Sigma wide angle lens for our landscape photography. Taking it on this cross country road trip was so perfect!
