I’m a huge Disney World fan. Seriously. I think there’s pixie dust in my blood stream. After working in the theme park industry for years, it’s hard NOT to love Disney. It truly is a magical place! We even chose to honeymoon at Disney World. We spent 8 days and loved every minute of it!
Side note, you’d be surprised how many people look at me like I’m crazy when I tell them we did Disney World for our honeymoon. Some people love laying on a beach all day, and some people love riding roller coasters, watching shows, meeting characters, and immersing themselves in Disney magic. To each their own!
I really wanted to go back this year for our 10 year anniversary, but we ended up just taking a quick weekend trip to Asheville. (We LOVED The Grove Park Inn!) We do have a trip to Disney planned for February with the kids, but Disney is a ton of fun without kids too. Maybe next year we’ll try again for an anniversary trip. If we are able to make that happen, I’m definitely getting us a couple of cute matching shirts to wear. (Luckily my husband is a good sport and loves Disney almost as much as I do!)
Here are a few of my favorite matching Disney shirts. They’re perfect for an anniversary trip, a Disney honeymoon, or just a couple that still loves each other as much as Mickey and Minnie!

10 years! I still can’t believe we’ve been married that long.
Josh and I went back and forth about what we wanted to do for our anniversary. Years ago we decided we’d go back to Italy to celebrate, but with two young children, that was out of the question. We also talked about going to Disney World. (We’re both big Disney nerds and we honeymooned at Disney.) But Disney is best when you have at least 4 or 5 days to explore, and again, with the kids being so little, we knew childcare wouldn’t work out for us to be gone that long.
So we narrowed it down to places we could visit that were driving distance from our house. Asheville came up in conversation, and we both agreed it would be beautiful this time of year. I remembered reading about The Grove Park Inn a while ago in a Southern Living magazine, so I checked out the website. It looked gorgeous and after I saw pictures of the spa, I was sold!
We booked a two night stay, but I wish we’d been able to stay longer. The hotel was absolutely beautiful. From the huge fireplaces in the great hall, to the breathtaking views of the mountains from the restaurants and from our room, to the spa that was basically my personal version of paradise, everywhere we turned in the historic resort was another area of opulence.

There are some parents who completely avoid traveling with a baby. When our kids were tiny, we tried to stick to places close by and that we’d been to before. We’re just now starting to venture out with the kids and travel further to new places. Because traveling with a baby is hard! Especially traveling by plane. These days, it seems like most people aren’t sensitive to babies on planes and tend to judge the parents when they can’t calm their crying baby. And changing a diaper in that tiny bathroom on the plane is quite a feat! But with some preparation, you can still have a successful trip. Here are some tips for traveling with your baby.
I’ve been visiting Helen, Georgia, a replica Bavarian Alps town in North Georgia, for longer than I can remember. My parent’s have a timeshare at a beautiful resort right on the river, and we’ve spent so many weeks relaxing and exploring the small town.
Now that I have my own kiddos, it’s been so fun going back and doing all the things I grew up doing. Some of them are just as wonderful and fun as I remember, and some seem a little strange now that I’m older. (Like watching the birth of a baby doll out of a cabbage…)
But if you live in the South East, you may want to put Helen, Georgia on your travel bucket list. The town is cozy and quaint, and you can find some great eats and some amazing outdoor views and adventures!
On Monday, I took the kiddos up to a sunflower farm about an hour outside of Atlanta. I had been to a sunflower farm before, but I was dying to get some beautiful pictures with the yellow flowers, the blue sky, and my cute kids. And our trip was a huge success! The weather was perfect, and the sunflowers were gorgeous.
So if you plan on adding a trip to your bucket list, check out my tips for visiting the sunflower farm.
