Weekly Check In: 5 Things I’m Obsessed With Today

It’s been a bit since I’ve updated on here. The weak excuses? I was sick, work’s been busy, AND I’ve been traveling a lot on weekends, and getting in late Sundays (Sunday nights are big blogging times for me).  I’m consistently impressed with those who can churn out content everyday, make it look more professional

Lancaster City is Cool

I’m going to make the bold statement that at the moment, Lancaster is 100% the coolest city in Pennsylvania…that no one’s ever heard of. Hear me out.  Whenever I tell people I used to live in Lancaster, the most common reaction still is to ask if I lived by the Amish. Most people are surprised

Day Trips from Philly

Occasionally I forget that this is a Pennsylvania-centric blog. I usually catch myself when something like 8 posts in a row aren’t celebrating the Keystone State in any way. Now, in my own defense, when I created this very Pennsylvania-centric blog, I purported to not only feature my home state, but easy trips to take

Checking Back in to Southern PA

I had a great little weekend back in the Lancaster/Chester County area this past weekend, hitting up a few old favorites, and finding some new.

Underrated Weekend Places and Things

You know what’s a great word to describe our wonderful Keystone State? Underrated.  You never see Pennsylvania topping any “best of” or “must see” lists, but it’s never at the bottom either. We have great regional food, great food scenes, amazing beer, phenomenal hiking, a great central locale, and two of the most livable (ie:

You could hardly go online anymore without seeing headlines for “Best US City for Beer” or “Best Beer State,” and new ale trails seem to be popping up everywhere. We’re definitely in the peak of this craft beer boom that you have to be blind not to realize is going on around us, and while

A Boozy Return to Lancaster

After relocating back to my native NEPA last September, I’ve basically been plotting my return to Lancaster. I had several botched attempts, but just one week ago finally made it back. I was super psyched, and even started putting together this post a week before I was set to go, finding links of the new

2015 New Year’s Resolutions Part 1

So because every single year I do a recap of my New Year’s Resolutions and every year it’s an exercise in disappointment, I’m going to scale it down a bit this year and keep it completely reasonable, keeping in mind my actual budget (not what I wish my budget would be), the amount of time

2014 Recap & New Year’s Resolutions Checklist

Every new year I make a list of things I’d like to accomplish for the new years (obviously these are all travel/leisure/blogging based-even though I am striving to eat more fruits and vegetables and vowing to curtail buying rounds of drinks for semi-acquaintances you won’t be reading about them here). Every year before posting these
