Surprise Adventure To Washington D.C.

All I knew was to pack my bag and be ready to leave no later then 7am so that's exactly what Joshie and I did. We thought road trip here we come! Correction! It was more like airport here we come!

Not until we got to our gate did we realize that our surprise trip was to Washington D.C.!!! Talk about excitement... I was thrilled, it has been a must on my list for as long as I can remember.

As I walked into the lobby of our lovely hotel the JW Marriott, these gorgeous chandeliers seemed to greet me with a smile and welcome me right in. I just knew this was going to be such a wonderful and amazing trip and adventure.

We certainly hit the ground running and decided to see as much as we possible could on day one. So we quickly went through the history museum and then headed over to see the Washington Monument , World War II Memorial, The Reflecting pool, Lincoln Memorial, Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall.

By far the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall was the most touching to my heart because I have a dad that served in Vietnam. He enlisted in the Marine Corps and served his country and although he was one of the lucky one's to come home. He did end up passing away in his early forties and his death was service connected. So many of us have lost loved ones then and now due to the Vietnam War.

The Cherry Blossom's where in full bloom and they seem to make this adventure in Washington D.C. even more spectacular and special. It was an absolute blast to go around the city on the segways and be able to see so mucho quickly and for our tour guide to give us a wealth of information made it that much more special.

The newest of all the Memorial's is the Martin Luther King Jr. Monument and it was certainly grand and powerful. It has an excellent space overlooking the

This trip to Washington D.C. was a fun filled packed weekend of events and pure enjoyment with my husband and son. The memories I carry with me bring me such joy as I reflect on this amazing adventure of a life time.

Creating A Fun, Functional, And Organized Desk Top

    Today while I was working away on a few new and up and coming projects, I took some quick pics of my desk area to share. I always try and keep my must have goodies that I use frequently right at my finger tips. Here are some pics on how I keep my desk top playful, functional, and organized. I hope this gives you some creative ideas for keeping your must have goodies organized and ready to use.

Plus, I never seem to leave empty handed at least several goodies or pieces always seem to make it's way home with me. Not to mention all of the amazing creative inspiration I get just from visiting.

From the moment I saw it, I knew I was in love. It's so unique, inviting, charming, and simply lovely. I arrived on opening day and meet the owner Kristy, she was so kind, sweet , and made the best latte! I know where I'll be spending some of my free time sipping a latte and reading a good book.

A Valentine Surprise...

Talk about a great surprise, my Valentine brought me to one of my new favorites The French Market and Tavern for a lovely and delicious Valentine brunch. This was definitely a wonderful and  thoughtful surprise for Valentine's day. The food is truly always amazing and the bonus... a little shopping after eating for some must have goodies.  It's not exactly around the corner from our home and it's almost an hour away from us but most definitely worth the drive every time. When in Georgia, it's a must!

The restaurant area of The French Market and Tavern  has a big gorgeous cow hanging on the wall. Not only was I lucky enough to have our table for brunch right next to her but I was able to convince my valentine to give her a little kiss for me. XXOOXX

It all started with a little dream...

     I had always dreamt about living in the south and having this little Martha Stewart-ish life. Yes, I realize that doesn’t exactly exist but whatever form of it does, I wanted it! I grew up in Southern California with the beaches, mountains, Disneyland, and so much more but the dream of this peaceful life sipping tea on a cute porch was always on my mind. 

     Well, that opportunity came my way and within days I was on a plane visiting one of the cutest places ever. It was Peachtree City, Georgia and I was in love with it! It’s a little community with over 100 miles of golf cart paths and people drive them everywhere and I do mean everywhere. On any given day you will find golf carts driving to school, work, shopping, out to eat, or just going through the Starbucks drive through for a quick coffee. It was a little piece of heaven and I wanted in!

     Within weeks our home sold and our family, cats, dogs, and bird were off to Georgia to start this new journey together.  Although it has been a bit of an adjustment I haven’t looked back and have enjoyed the adventure from the unique places, cutest towns, amazing shops, and some of the best restaurants. I would definitely say that I'm enjoying a peach life!

Sharing my journey and adventures,
