Girls Trip! Kyoto, Japan

Every duty station brings a new round of military sisters into my life and I am constantly amazed at the diverse talents and gifts these strong woman have! This time around I have been introduced to adventurous gals that can pack a suitcase with their eyes closed and try and convince me that taking all our kids to Thailand sans husbands is a normal thing to plan. These gals push my comfort zone boundaries and I love them for it! Read More




Flanners Beach, NC

Weekends are our chance to explore and adventure with this little crew and Bill and I are always on the lookout for nearby places to explore. When this hidden gem presented itself we knew that it was the perfect spot for a weekend getaway! Even more so it was exactly where I wanted to spend my Mother’s Day, unplugged from everything, salt air in my lungs while watching my boys discover another corner of this amazing world we live in. If you live in the area or are traveling through coastal North Carolina, we think it might just be the perfect spot for you too! Read More


Island Creek Trail, Pollocksville NC

Back again with another favorite local trail of ours. If you enjoy geocaching and live near Camp Lejeune this trail is for you! If you love moss and mushrooms and wild life this trail is for you! Pretty much, if you like to get outside for a beautiful day hike, this trail is for you!

When we moved to North Carolina our crew was already hooked on geocaching and hoped that a new locale would provide lots more caches. Sadly, this didn’t pan out. This area lacks decent geocaching areas but thankfully Island Creek Trail saved us from utter despair 😉
