“Not all who wander are lost.” -J.R.R Tolkien

I would go as far as to say that travel is my love language. I love exploring new and old places. After every trip, I am like where to next? I try and write down a list of places that I would like to venture off to. Now, I may not be able to make it to every destination but I like to at least have some goals in mind so that way I can look at all of the things that I need to do to plan and then just pick one off of my list. Some are already planned out, and then there are others that are more of a bucket list

Travel Plans 2019:

1. Washington DC

This will be a return trip but in March I will be back in DC. I am so excited because this will be a trip with just Colin and I. Colin isn’t really one for cities but we are in for a fun time.

2. Harper’s Ferry & Anietam Battlefield:

My birthday trip this year will be the same as last year. Colin and I love going to battlefields. I am really looking forward to this trip because this is a favorite spot of ours.

3. Gettysburg:

If you have been around for awhile Gettysburg is one of those places that Colin and I visit on a daily basis so it really is no surprise that we will be making this a day trip.

4. Williamsburg:

This is another trip that is a regular yearly trip. It is not only yearly but it is one of our most anticipated trips. Mainly because this is a vacation not just a day trip.

5. New York City:

This is one of those trips that I hope to make this year. I love New York City and I always have fun plus the atmosphere of the city is just something that I really enjoy experiencing.

6. Jim Thorpe:

This cute town in PA has a lot of history and it is so cute. This will be an all new adventure that I am really, really looking forward to.

7. The Beach:

Not sure which beach yet, but last year I missed out on going. This year, I am definitely going.

8. Franklin:

Another repeat, but probably one of my favorite trips that I go on. It is one that I have made with family since Colin has to work. Seriously one of the cutest little towns and one day would love to move there someday.


So that is my list of travel hopes for this year. I am really looking forward to trying to blog more of my trips as well as include some of my favorite places that I like to go, do and eat. Where are some of your favorite places to travel to? Leave me a comment!

NYC Trip:Day 1

New York City is hands down one of my favorite places. I love the hustle and bustle and the architecture. I love the towering skyscrapers and Time Square. I love Broadway and New York pizza. This was my second time in the city and I was reminded of how much I love the city. When I was in Middle School/High School, I had dreams of moving to the City That Never Sleeps. Now however, I am content with visiting when I can. It always amazes me how our lives end up panning out in comparison to those childhood dreams. I am not disappointed in the way life turned out only disappointed that I don’t take enough time to do the things I enjoy. I think from now on, I am going to change that. When ever I feel lost or confused, New York seems to bring me back. Lately, I have been feeling lonely, and depressed. I haven’t being feeling myself. I get a major case of wanderlust and just when I can’t quite scratch the itch, is right around all those feelings seem to come to surface. I love travel and I have found over the years that simply traveling to my favorite places such as:Gettysburg, Lancaster, West Virginia, New York, and Williamsburg; seems to be just what I need. Going to see the Musicals I am dying to see, these things and places help shape the ME, that I was created to be. One day I hope to have children of my own, and the last thing I want is to not set an example for being who you are, and going and living the places you love. We need to live. We need to take a step back from the daily stress and enjoy simply being ourselves. 

So with all that being said, here is a little diary of sorts of Day 1:


I went to NYC with my sister April. We left early to catch a Megabus to the city. The ride went by quickly and before we knew it we were there. 


Our hotel room wasn’t ready for us, but we went ahead and checked in our bags and went to Shake Shack for lunch. So good!! We were in the Theatre District. So we were close to Time Square and theaters. 


We did some sight seeing before our show. 


Then we went to see Anastasia.


The show was so good! I loved it so much! I would love to see it again if I have the opportunity too! I don’t want to spoil anything but the story, the music was simply dreamy! 

I took some pictures of our hotel room so I am going to share those here:

The view from our room!!


Our room was very nice and a sight for sore eyes after a long wonderful day! 

Let me know what your favorite city/place to go is in the comments!

Finally Back

After a long break from my little home here on the internet, I am back. I never intended to be gone this long but in some ways it was actually nice and I am back to feeling inspired. So before I go into an update, I hope you like my new blog name. Since I have been gone so long and I have gone through some changes, the new name fits me and the season of life I am in. So here is my update.

 

  1. Williamsburg Trip


Colin and I went on our anniversary trip at the end of June. This is also where the fate of my phone was sealed and I had a heck of a time trying to get back in, till today. It was such a nice time, even if I did end up losing my phone.

2. Boating

I went boating with my Grandpa. I read and I enjoyed having a phone again.

3. Gettysburg Trip


We took a family trip to Gettysburg. We always go to Gettysburg, so I don’t think I need to go into to much detail.

4. Hershey Park

We went to Hershey Park. Let me tell you, this peanut butter chocolate chip scone, was amazing.

5. Harry Potter Convention


My sister and I attended The Harry Potter Convention in Baltimore City. Super fun to listen to Devon Murray talk about his time filming the movies.

6. Second Gettysburg Trip

We went back to Gettysburg, this time it was just Colin and I.

6. Franklin WVa


I visited my Aunt in West Virginia. I love this little town and I always enjoy my time.

7. Watching My Niece


I got to watch my niece a good bit, and being her Aunt Bee is one of my favorite things in this world.

8. Wedding Season


We attended 4 weddings this year.

9. Sister in Laws Bridal Shower


We celebrated Chloe’s upcoming day.

10. Third Gettysburg Trip


We went back for another Gettysburg Trip.

11. Sister In Laws Wedding


Chloe’s wedding which I helped coordinate.

12. Christmas


I love Christmas. I baked cookies, saw the Nutcracker, and loved having my tree up.

13. Antietam Battlefield and Harpers Ferry


The day before Christmas Eve, Colin and I went to Antietam and Harpers Ferry. It was a much needed trip to kick off our holiday season!

To come: So if you made it here congratulations and thank you for sticking with me. I tried to make sure to keep everything simple and straight to the point. I have a couple of things coming up that are exciting and I am looking forward to blogging about it.

NYC Trip:


I am going to New York City! This is my second time going up there and my first overnight stay. I will also be seeing Anastasia on Broadway! So excited!!


I plan to take as many pictures as I can and I am excited to share with you all.

I also will be seeing a couple of other shows next year but those will be posts for another day.

Thank you for reading and sticking around! I hope you all had an amazing Christmas and Holiday season and I will see you next year!

XOXO Brandy


 

Full of Wanderlust 

  It has been awhile since my last post. Sorry about that. I hate those moments where I feel like I don’t have anything to say. I have felt like I have been in a blogger funk. I have some fun trips coming up, so I can share with you. 

I love adventure. I love traveling  to new places and revisiting old familiar places. 

In July we are going to Williamsburg, VA! 

   
   

I love going to Williamsburg and I can not wait to go back. I am going try and take as many pictures as possible! I have been practicing some patience in waiting for my camera to focus before snapping the picture! So I am excited to see if I get some good shots! 

However before I go to Williamsburg, I am going to the beach. And you can bet there will be pictures! 

Then after Williamsburg in July; in September, I am going to West Virginia to visit my Aunt. I went last year and I loved it. I loved being up in the mountains and spending time with my family. 

  
And the mountains are gorgeous to photograph, even if you have no idea what your doing. 

So while I am waiting for these fun trips to happen, I have been enjoying bonfires at my grandparents.

  
And taking walks on some of the trails.

P.S. I do have some fun posts coming up soon!
