We are living in crazy times right now. I am sure this is not how most of us envisioned our 2020 would be, but Covid-19 has hit the world hard and we are all adjusting to a new (and hopefully very temporary!) normal as we all stay home and fight the spread of this virus. While none of us would choose this “Shelter In Place” life, it is our current reality and I hope you are all keeping a positive outlook during these circumstances. I have been social distancing for 2 weeks and self quarantined for 1 week now and I am at the point where I need some more things to keep me occupied. Here is what I found interesting while researching free things to do during Covid-19 quarantine lockdowns.
Over the weekend I was fortunate enough to partner with Ohio. Find It Here. to bring you guys a weekend of Christmas cheer and holiday inspiration! My husband, Alex, and I stopped at two of the Ohio. Find It Here. Holiday Lights Trail destinations to explore and experience the beauty and wonder of Christmas decor.
When I go on a longer trip, I really like to wear a watch in case my phone dies or I can’t get to an outlet in time. Travel requires being on time and missing a flight or train is my least favorite thing ever! I am so excited to be partnering with JORD to bring you guys this fun giveaway, and now I will always know the time! Enter at the end of this post to win a $100 credit to JORD!
I used to loathe thrifting. Now I think its the biggest thrill! So what changed? My perspective. When we bought our first home I would go thrifting to find furniture to paint or refinish and that was a fun hobby, but looking at the clothes just seemed like hell on earth. I tried looking through the racks piece by piece a few times over the year only to be defeated by boredom and that weird thrift store smell. I thought that you had to look through every single item in the store in order to find anything good. I would usually rage quit halfway through and not go back for another year.
It’s the first day of summer and I couldn’t be more thrilled about the warmer temps and sunshine to come here in Cleveland! The nicer weather gives me a renewed motivation to get out and see more of our beautiful city and to go on more adventures with my girlfriends! Today I am sharing 35 fun BFF date ideas to do together in and around The Land this summer.
I recently received some snail mail from a friend and felt compelled to share it with you all. My friend Sara just started an account Instagram called @postcardpoetryclub and I could not love what she is doing there more. For $1, Sara will write you a personalized, handwritten poem on a vintage postcard and send it to you in the mail. I asked her for a travel-themed poem and this is what she came up with for me…
Happy Earth Day!
I wasn’t planning to write this post today, but I was inspired by everyone sharing their sustainability efforts in honor of Earth Day. I figured I would jump on the bandwagon and share a few things that we have changed or started in the last couple of years with the intention of being more kind to our beautiful planet.
Last year I won Helene In Between’s $2,000 travel giveaway. I had been wanting to go on her trip to Portugal with TrovaTrip for months but had decided that I really couldn’t afford it. When I won Helene’s giveaway, I was floored! I couldn’t believe it! Never had I won so much as a bridal shower bingo game, but I had won $2,000 towards travel. I ended up using the money to go to Portugal with her. It was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made for myself.
