Grounds For Sculpture

I am a big advocate for getting outside. Most of our days are spent inside for work and school, giving our body much less time to move around and be out in the open air…if you want to know why the doctor is telling you that you’re lacking in Vitamin D, it’s because you aren’t…

Reading, PA

When I heard there was a Pagoda within driving distance of me, I thought maybe it was just going to be a small house with some sort of fabrication on the front of it. But when we got there I was pleasantly surprised at how massive it was, with the added bonus of being able…

Ocean City, NJ

Ocean City, NJ offers a little bit of everything, for every type of adventure you may want to try. Beach tags are only $5 for you to soak up the sun and play in the waves. Gillian’s Wonderland Pier offers a huge ferris wheel, while Playland’s Castaway Cove has several roller coaster’s…and the boardwalk leads…

Baldwin’s Book Barn

I found out about Baldwin’s Book Barn by chance. I was looking for something very close to home, and would provide a new experience for my son. When I came across this used book store, I knew I found a worthy place for a couple hours of our time. Built in 1822, it houses around…

Adulting (4)

Warning: Contains content not suitable for all ages or readers. When baby boy was 5 months old, we made the decision to drive cross country to live with my middle sister in Arizona. She had made the trip a few months earlier, had grabbed a two bedroom apartment already, and said we could come out…

Unfocused (3)

Warning: Contains content not suitable for all ages or readers. The new life in college was not what I was expecting. I wasn’t a fan of my roommate, and I had chosen the “boring” upperclassman dorm, without realizing it. It seems I made every possible wrong decision after that, too. I went in doing my…

Lessons (2)

Warning: Contains content not suitable for all ages or readers. After my middle sister and I left my mom’s, it wasn’t to live with my grandmother as I initially thought. Instead it was to live with my Aunt…and I don’t think we were with her for 3 months before she was mad enough to say…

Rough (1)

#DIY Storage Coffee Table

I was searching everywhere online for some sort of storage coffee table that would be under $50…I didn’t even mind if I found something that was used, just as long as I could fit it into my small car, but there wasn’t anything in my area on FB Marketplace and everything new was $100 and…

Baltimore Harbor

Most people think of the National Aquarium when you mention the Baltimore Harbor, but there is so much more to explore in the area. My son and I had gone to check out a Wing Festival (so insanely awesome), but I wanted to roam around a bit before the 1pm start. Since both of us…

Echo Dell

I am so Happy that Indian Echo Caverns is making the transition away from the stereotypical branding it had for decades, and the new name is Echo Dell. The Susquehannocks were the first recorded Native American tribe in the area, with numerous other tribes and foreigners utilizing the cave through the centuries thereafter. The caverns…

Chanticleer Garden

You could spend quite a few hours roaming these gardens, so bringing a lunch to eat at their picnic tables wouldn’t be a bad idea . Age 12 and under is free, Adults are $10, and Access holders are $2, so it is worth the price for a few hours of peace. You can start…
