on March 17, 2017

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.

The Ocean House- Where Seaside Traditions Begin

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….

My Pre-Baby Bucket List Busting Year

Posted in Bucket List, Inspiration, Travel
on August 19, 2016

Last year (2015), was what I consider to be my “Bucket List Busting Year”.  After suffering a miscarriage the year before after 5 long years of infertility, I was approaching 2015 thinking it was going to be one of the worst years of my life. The constant reminders of what could have been were always on my mind.

I thought I would spend most of that year caught up in pregnancy reminders from apps on my phone, & devastated at every Thursday that passed as I counted down the weeks to my impending “almost” due date, July 4th.

Instead, much to my surprise, I had one of the best years of my life thanks to the Grace of God and the prayers of family and friends.

My Journey to Mommyhood has been long and hard.  Patience, after all, is not one of my virtues. (Clearly God is trying to teach me a lesson on that!) 😉

But, one thing I’ve learned along the way, is not to put things off for your fertility…

10 Facts About Me

Posted in About Stephanie
on June 26, 2016

Hi!  Welcome to my blog!  I’m so happy you’re here!  Let me tell you more about myself…

10 Facts About Me:

1. I sang the National Anthem at a Detroit Pistons basketball game when I was in high school. I like to pull this “fact” out of my hat when I’m really trying to impress people. And, you’re worth impressing! Truth be told, I’m honestly secretly terrified of singing in front of people.

I sang a lot in my younger years, but now I’m so terrified of it, it’d be right up there with skydiving…on the fear factor scale! 😂

So, there you have it…my most interesting fact. Are you impressed and now want to be besties…huh, HUH??!!!

2. I fell in love recently…he was fat, and smooth, and white…and he even let me feel his flubber!! His name…is Juno.

We met Juno on our Epic New England Road Trip last fall. He lives at the Mystic Aquarium in Mystic, Connecticut. Meeting this beluga whale, was definitely the highlight of our trip. He loves to photobomb, and is very interactive.  He was even nice enough to give me a fishy salt water facial. You can’t get that in any spa.
