    Photo Challenge: Ascend

    Happy Friday! And a happy Friday it is as it’s my first day of winter break and the start of Christmas weekend. My blog has been filled with holiday photos this week and will continue next week, but my photo challenge response today isn’t very holiday-y. The challenge was “Ascend” and I’m using a photo I took two years ago at the Cape May Lighthouse. This photo is looking up at at the staircase when I was about halfway up. The tall spiral staircase was really tiring and my thighs were definitely burning by the time I got to the top. The views from the top of the lighthouse were…

    Photo Challenge: Delta

    I’m headed home today from my vacation. I can’t believe it’s been a week already! I’ll resume my travel posts tomorrow (if you missed them you can read what I’ve posted so far here, here, and here), but for today I’ve got my response to last week’s photo challenge from The Daily Post, “Delta“.

    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?…
