    I’m on YouTube!

    I have exciting news! Well, for me – but I hope you’ll join me in being excited. I’m officially on YouTube! I’d been toying with the idea of making a YouTube channel for a while now, but I didn’t want to be in front of the camera talking just because I’m not comfortable doing that. At least not yet. So, I decided to take some video clips of my mini-getaway last week and put them together with music! Now, I’m new to this and I decided to just take the video on my iPhone which actually takes pretty good quality video. Unfortunately, I didn’t know before taking all these videos that when shooting…

    Restaurant Review: Old Homestead Steak House

We planned this out ahead of time and made appointments while both on prep (in case you’re new to the blog, I’m a teacher). I’ve mentioned it before on here once or twice that when I go on vacation I like to book a massage, if I’m staying at a place that such luxuries are available. It’s a treat to myself that I always look forward to. Now, this little getaway was just an overnight trip, but one of the main points…

    Cape May/Atlantic City

    Normally, I would say “Thursday! So close to the weekend!”, but I’m on spring break so it’s more like “Thursday?! Can it be Tuesday again?” If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen my posts about my little mini trip. I call it a mini trip because I was just gone for the day/overnight. I had some bigger tentative spring break plans but they didn’t pan out, which is okay because I seriously needed the chance to just relax and as relaxing as a proper vacation would’ve been traveling can take a lot out of you. How many of you feel like you need a vacation after a vacation?…
