You don't need a golden ticket to enter the Color Factory (you can just pull up your reservation on your phone), but it is just as full of candy, treats and magic around every corner as if Mr. Wonka designed it himself.

The vibrant colors in this place made it inherentl...

Last December, I was super stressed about Christmas gifts. More than I’d ever been before. The night before I was supposed to be traveling back to Maryland to be with my family, I hardly slept. I was up all night worrying and working on gifts for my family. Coming up w...

I've wanted to visit New York City for a long time, and finally made it happen in November. My older brother Matt came with me, and it was a day trip for the books- almost 13 miles of walking, over a dozen major tourist sites visited, and the only money we spent was on...

So far, I haven't made any promises to you or myself about this blog space. I haven't stressed about a consistent posting schedule, or been strict about the type of posts I write. Like the fact that so far almost every post has been about motivation? That honestly wasn...

Recently, I've had an obsession with the phrase "live your best life," because it's such a simple goal. Actually implementing it has been a much more difficult feat though, so I wanted to share some of the things I've learned along the way.
