Do you ever feel like you are on an endless search for a planning system, that will meet all of your needs? I used to feel this way constantly, but I believe I have finally found a planner that works for me. Today, I am going to be reviewing the Passion Planner and explaining why it has become my all time favorite planner. Everyone has different needs, when it comes to planning, but hopefully I can help you make an informed decision, on whether or not the Passion Planner is for you.
On our most recent trip to London, we had the opportunity to go on a couple of day trips, outside of the city. One of those trips, wast to Stonehenge. This is definitely one of the more touristy spots to visit in England, but I still think it is worth seeing for yourself. Today, I’m going to share about our experience, visiting Stonehenge, and maybe convince you to add it to your list.
Hey ya’ll! I’m back today with a fun post. As I have said before, Fall is my favorite time of year. I love the changing colors, the crisp morning air, and pumpkin flavored everything. I also have a pretty big soft spot for Halloween. When I was a little girl, my granny had the best Halloween parties. The entire family (and friends) would compete in a costume contest and we would eat and play games. I know I got my love of hosting parties, from her. Last year, I pulled together a great Halloween party and today I am going to tell you how I did it, so you can plan a rockin’ Halloween party, too!
Hey Y’all! I’m super excited about today’s post, because I am combining two of my passions: travel and stationery! If you happen to check out any of my non-travel related posts, you may already know that I am a planner girl and a stationery addict. In the U.S. (especially Nashville), we are very limited on brick and mortar stationery stores. That’s why I always make sure to research the best spots for planners and other stationery supplies, whenever we travel. Today, I’m going to share about the stationery stores, that I visited in London.
Y’all know I like to keep it real around here. You get to see my fun trip posts and my planner posts and my happy life posts, but I also like to share the behind-the-scenes look. The unfiltered view. In the past, I have shared about my infertility struggles and not long ago, I shared our adoption announcement. In that post, I did share a little bit about what led us to choose adoption, but it was the technical story and this is the emotional one.
Hey Y’all! I am excited to share another travel-related post with you today! I finished up my series on Taiwan (for now), but I still have a lot of stories to share. Over the next several weeks, I will be telling you about our most recent trip to Europe. Some locations were repeats for us and others were brand new. One of the beautiful things about traveling is, even if you revisit the same location, there are still so many things left to see and do. We always leave, feeling like we could have stayed for a lot longer, and still not have seen it all. That’s why I never regret going back! Today, I’m going to start this new series, by telling you about our first full day in London!
The Decision to Revisit London
When we were deciding on where to go for our third wedding anniversary, we ran through a lot of options. Part of me wanted to do a tropical location and still another part of me wanted to try something completely and totally new. It just so happened, that Nashville International Airport, started having nonstop flights to Heathrow, back in May. As world travelers, this news thrilled us! Our airport, while it is international, has only ever offered straight flights to Canada and Mexico, so this was huge progress. We were even happier to find out the flight would be operated by British Air. This played a major role, in our decision to go back to Europe. Even though we had been to London, once before, it was a very short stop, and we didn’t get to see much. I was excited to get to spend a few days there and explore the city more and some of the surrounding areas.Read More
Hey Y’all! It’s Monday, again. I hope you had a relaxing weekend and have been able to jump right into the new week. If it hasn’t gone as planned, that’s okay too. We all get a “case of the Mondays” from time to time. I’m hoping today’s post can help you to be better prepared for the week ahead, by giving you a quick and healthy breakfast to start each day. Meal prep is a great way to make your week go smoother and who doesn’t want that? My favorite breakfast to prep ahead of time is a fruit and yogurt parfait.
Hey Y’all! It’s Friday again, so that means it’s time for another travel post, for The Weekly Postcard! This week I am finishing out the current Taiwan series, but don’t worry! We will be going back, so there will be more to come on Taiwan later. If you haven’t been keeping up, be sure to check out my other posts about our trip to Taiwan. Today, I want to share about our day spent at Fulong Beach!
Happy Monday! (I know…those two words don’t go well together). I am happy today though, because I am actually getting the opportunity to post! The past couple of weeks have been super busy. I was doing a lot of work and maintenance on the website. It may not look very different to you, but there was a lot going on in the background. I will spare you the boring details and jump right into todays post. It’s all about why I chose to stop fertility treatments.
This is something I have wanted to share for awhile, but I wanted to wait until after I had announced our adoption plans. You may think that the adoption stuff came out of left field, but the truth is that it is something that I have always wanted to do.
I want to make it clear that I did not choose adoption, due to infertility, because I think that is the wrong reason to adopt. It is a very different route to parenthood. I am not saying that you should not adopt if you have been struggling with infertility. I am just saying that infertility should not be your reason for doing it. That is what bothers me the most about the, “Why don’t you just adopt?” question that infertile couples get asked. You should never, just adopt. But, let me get off of that soap box and back to what today’s post is really about.
I want to share a little bit about my decision to stop fertility treatments.
I’m so excited about today’s post, because it’s all about one of my favorite activities we did, while we were in Taiwan: building and releasing a sky lantern! I know it’s extremely touristy and cheesy, but sometimes those types of actives are the most enjoyable.
Our trip to Pingxi was part of the day tour we took to see the Golden Waterfall and the Yin Yang Sea, which I posted about previously. Pingxi was our last stop on that tour and it was where we spent the most time. It was such a unique experience to be a part of and it is definitely one we will never forget!
