Just the other night, my sweet hubby surprised with an amazing Date Night. He whisked me off to the Toledo Zoo for the Luminous Nights, a Chinese Lantern extraordinaire. Toledo Zoo is only the second zoo in the entire world to offer this beautiful spectacle of color and glowing light, and I am so thankful we got to see it.
If you live in the area, a trip to The Toledo Zoo for Luminous Nights is definitely worth the drive. I feel so #blessed to live close enough to the Toledo Zoo. It’s an amazing place to visit for the entire family.
I can’t wait to share this awesome Date Night with you. Let’s go…
My family & I love doing The Color Run every summer. It’s become one of my favorite yearly traditions, and this years Dream Tour was nothing short of amazing. The weather was perfect. The sherbet colors of yellow, purple, blue, and coral pink were new and different. And, the party at the finish line was extra fun.
The Color Run is the best family 5K in my opinion. Here’s why we love it so much, and why I’m sure you will too!
Just this past Memorial Day weekend, my hubby and I were heading up to Frankenmuth, Michigan’s Little Bravaria. We go up every year for their Annual Dog Bowl & Balloon Festival (which I’ll share with you in blog posts soon). I had noticed on Instagram that the Hello Kitty Cafe was going to be at a local mall that day, and lo and behold, it just so happened to be on our route up north. So, we packed our bags, got in the car, and began our adventure up north for the weekend.
The plan was to make a quick stop at the mall, buy some macaroons from the glorious hot pink van, & be on our way. But boy, our day turned out entirely different than our perfectly planned excursion…
My nieces loved watching the Disney movie, Tangled , when they were little, and if I was being completely honest, I loved watching it too! We’d make cupcakes and decorate pink and purple tiaras with jewels and stickers, & dance around our living room singing all the songs and reciting all the lines. Our favorite part of the movie was the floating lantern scene, when Rapunzel and Flynn Ryder are in the canoe singing. I thought that type of scene only existed in the movies, until I saw advertisements for The Lantern Fest on Facebook.
I knew that one day I’d have to go to The Lantern Fest to witness this spectacle in person, and so when I heard The Lantern Fest was coming to Michigan, I jumped at the chance to go. This past May, just a few weeks ago, we experienced one of the most beautiful and unexpected nights of our lives.

Hygge (actually pronouced “Hoo-gah”) is a Danish concept that has completely changed my day-to-day living. Traditionally, Hygge is described as a way of embracing a cozy life during the cold winter months. But, today I’d like to share with you a seasonal guide, that will help you “live Hygge” all year-long…
Hershey is like no other place I have ever visited, hence why it’s called “the sweetest place on earth”. There is literally an ode to chocolate at every turn. From the street lights shaped like Hershey’s Kisses, to the complimentary chocolate bar we received when we arrived at the Hershey Lodge, every detail was perfect and special. And, with several amazing places to explore and unique experiences you can only find in Hershey, it is definitely a must-see place for every family.
If you’ve been racking your brain for an extra special place to take your family this year on a vacation, look no further that Hershey. It won’t disappoint.
So, come along with me, as I recollect our quick and unforgettable trip to Hershey, Pennsylvania. I’ll share with you where we stayed, where we ate, and the experiences that made this trip absolutely amazing.
As we rounded the bluff that sunny blue skyed October day, The Ocean House stood tall with grandeur before us. Sparkling waves, and heaping colorful flowers swaying in the cool ocean breezes, were the backdrop for the yellow mansion that awaited us. I was instantly enamoured with this place as we were led into our balcony suite overlooking the Atlantic. This was Rhode Island at its finest. And, this was my dream New England Beach Getaway….
