Northwest Florida – A Favorite Spot For Summertime Fun

Have you ever visited Florida? I mentioned a few posts ago that my family and I drove to St. Augustine, dipped our toes in the water, enjoyed an ice cream cone, then headed back to our vacation in Georgia. We stopped at the state line, on the way, and enjoyed some fresh orange juice as well. But, that’s it. That’s the only time I’ve spent in Florida. Clay and his parents went when he was a child but not since. So, I’d love to visit more of the state, including Northwest Florida! I’ve included maps with addresses to some of…

BlissWood Bed & Breakfast Ranch All-Inclusive Dude Ranch Vacation Package

Y’all, I want to tell you about a new ALL-INCLUSIVE dude ranch vacation experience at BlissWood Bed and Breakfast Ranch in Cat Spring, Texas.(I shared them with you before and have more photos on that post.) I want to go so bad! I’ve always wanted to stay on a dude ranch. I’m lazy 😂 and don’t necessarily want to work during my vacation, but relax and enjoy the scenery. A day working and learning might not be too bad though. I want to go on a wagon train too. That would be so much fun! This is not a working…

Natural Habitat Adventures – Off-Peak Travel Ideas – 1 Of 2

With the pandemic calmer than it has been in 2 years, do you plan to take a vacation away from home this year? We do! Actually, we traveled the past 2 years but stayed in our vacation rental and didn’t do any type of attractions. We rented a beach house with a pool and spent the week swimming, eating and just enjoying being together. It was nice! But, I want a bit of adventure this year so we’ve planned a couple activities. Not a lot but some small things to get our toes wet again. Something I would LOVE to…

Top Five Reasons To Visit Washington County, Florida

Have you ever visited Florida? Clay, the kids and I have driven to Florida, from coastal Georgia once. We stepped foot in the Atlantic ocean in St. Augustine, FL, got an ice cream cone, then drove back. It was just a short day trip / Sunday drive type of thing. That’s as far south as I’ve ever been. I’d love to visit more of Florida though and hope to in the next year. I would love to visit Washington County, Florida. Here’s some more info along with the top 5 reasons to visit! Washington County, Florida, is just an hour…

Celebrate A Romantic Anniversary At Anakeesta

A couple years ago, Clay and I visited and wrote about Anakeesta in Gatlinburg, TN. We recently had the opportunity to visit again. I LOVE Anakeesta so I was beyond excited when they offered to host our anniversary visit. Clay and I are celebrating 25 years of marriage this year and couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful place to celebrate! There is something so romantic about celebrating our anniversary at Anakeesta. In this post, I will show you a little bit of Anakeesta in the fall. I also want to tell you about their winter activity coming up in a…
