Next Stop: Mexico's Riviera Maya

I can’t count the number of times I’ve said I’d book a beach vacation when I lost weight. Hundreds? A thousand?

It was the same with our trip to London. I always said I’d travel when the weight dropped off and I felt comfortable in my own skin. My lifelong struggle with weight was holding me back, and the best thing I did last year was say to myself: to heck with it, let’s book this vacation!

Day Trippin' for the Perfect Summer Treat (and How You Can Have an Awesome Day Trip, Too)

Although I like to be organized and plan ahead for major things like our trip to England, I’m all about spur-of-the-moment day trips.

Living in Asheville, North Carolina offers some major perks as far as having plenty of do within a couple hours’ drive. Whenever we get a hankerin’ for a change of scenery, Ty and I will usually head toward Cherokee or Pigeon Forge. Those tend to be our go-to day trips during the fall and spring months when touristy spots are less crowded. Otherwise, we prefer to lay low in the summertime because, you know . . . people.
