Exploring Rattlesnake Lake During Winter

Picturesque is the only way I can think of describing Rattlesnake Lake. Being able to see this exquisite spot was something I definitely wanted to check off my list when visiting the Pacific Northwest. I’ve been longing to see snow all winter and even though Johnny and I missed the snowstorm, there was still plenty left. When we finally arrived the view was breathtaking. Exploring Rattlesnake Lake is the perfect addition for a trip to Seattle. The temperatures were not bad at all. Only just above freezing, which without the wind, is quite nice. We arrived just before 3:00 p.m. and there were a few families exploring and of course, some photography sessions.

A Winter Getaway in New York City :: Complete Travel Guide

New York City is one of my favorite destinations. I am in love with the energy, excitement and endless things to do in this city. For years, my trips to New York City are quite short, usually consisting of a day or two. Before leaving the East Coast for Dallas, Johnny and I decided to take a winter getaway in New York City. I feel like there will always more places for us to explore but for now here are some of our favorite places to visit and things to do. Our trip lasted four nights and five days. I hope this guide for a winter getaway in New York City helps you plan your itinerary for your next trip!

Exploring the Best Views in Central Park

Hello from New York City! It’s been a bucket list item for years for Johnny and I to go to New York City during the holidays together. I have been several times before but unfortunately, he couldn’t tag along. This time, we are in the NYC for a good few days and are beyond excited to explore and check off some places we’ve been dying to visit! I’m partnering with Sole Society in today’s post to share some warm and comfortable pieces I’m wearing on my trip. Of course, you can’t go on a trip to New York without visiting Central Park. However, it’s quite vast and I want to save you some time. So I’m sharing the best views in Central Park and what I’m wearing to take in those views while staying warm.

Staycation at The Cavalier Hotel in Virginia Beach

In the years I’ve lived in Virginia Beach, I have discovered it is quite charming. From the scenic beaches, to beautiful hikes and growing food scene, Virginia Beach has quite a bit to offer. Watching The Cavalier Hotel get re-built has been a joy and I was incredibly excited when they reached out asking me to do a staycation. Rich history lines the walls of this historic luxurious hotel originally built in 1926. Its guest list is quite impressive including F. Scott Fitzgerald, Frank Sintra, Muhammad Ali and a host of Presidents such as Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry Truman and Lyndon B. Johnson.

Apple Picking at Carter Mountain Orchard

Virginia is definitely a state for lovers. Charlottesville is a charming college town with so much to offer, especially during Fall. Carter Mountain Orchard is well known for apple picking. It’s the perfect activity to do with your beau. Johnny and I had so much fun picking out our favorite apples to bring home! I highly recommend going early in the season, so you’ll get more apples to choose from! This will mean better pictures, too. These photos are from last year but I didn’t get a chance to work on them and post until it was well after apple picking season. They were part of our trip to the Virginia Mountains. If apple picking is something you’re wanting to do this fall, I’m spilling some tips, as well as the two things we wish we knew before we embarked on this adventure!
