Celebrating Thirty in Savannah

So I finally joined the 30 club last week. And in order to celebrate that milestone in my life, since I couldn’t have a blow out party because ahem knocked up, I decided I wanted to travel. For anyone who knows the hubby and I, you know we enjoy traveling. We’ve traveled extensively west and throughout the Midwest. I have traveled some to the East coast. But much of the South has been left uncharted for me. So I decided…

Australian Adventure Part 2: Up the Coast

We left off Part 1 of our Australian adventure just leaving Sydney. We made our way up the coast towards the Gold Coast for the Australian Summer Grains Conference. We had a couple of days to get there, so we got to take our time exploring along the coast.  It was nice to get out of the city and explore rural life in Australia. We found it wasn’t much unlike here in the United States. Lots of small towns filled…

Australian Adventure Part 1: Sydney

It would be impossible to sum up our trip to Australia in one post. We honestly had the best time traveling across three states (just over 4,000 km!), seeing so much diversity, meeting so many amazing people, and eating lots of good food!  It truly was the trip of a lifetime, as many have called it. But the hubby and I are already talking about how we need to make it a goal to go back in this lifetime. We have…

Big Island Hawaii

Thanks to some good business relationships and my hunny’s hard work, we’ve had the opportunity to travel to some pretty incredible places… Like the Hawaiian Islands. In the four years Mark and I have been together, I’ve been able to travel to Maui, Kauai, Oahu, and now the Big Island.  If I had to rank them in favorites, Maui still takes the cake. Followed by the Big Island, Oahu, and Kauai. I honestly loved Maui and we had the best…

A Down Under Adventure

Sometimes, you never really know what is going to fall into your lap…. like an adventure down under!! A couple months ago, both the hubby and I were approached by a social media friend from Australia. She was looking to fill a speaker position about sunflowers during the Australian Summer Grains Conference in March. I literally looked at the hubby and asked if it was something he would remotely be interested in, he said yes, and within three days we…

TechMunch Conference in NYC

You may have been living vicariously through my last two weeks as I hopped a plane to the Big Apple. I had the amazing opportunity to attend TechMunch, thanks to National Wheat Foundation. This was my first time in NYC and it is safe to say I was pretty intimidated about attending. But I pulled on my “big girl” boots (my Sunflower cowboy boots) in the Big Apple to attend.   TechMunch was created to help food bloggers learn the skills they…

Packing & Traveling Tips for the World Traveler

2014 marked the year of world travel for us. If you remember back, we traveled to South East Asia: Singapore, Cambodia, and Thailand. It was such a blast to see a new part of the world and experience it firsthand. Traveling really gives you a sense of appreciation for where we live here in the United States. As much as we would like to jet set off to another foreign location, building our house has taken precedence this year. But…

Cambodia Vacation

Cambodia: Angkor Wat & Angkor Thom

Our third and final full day in Cambodia took us to the grand Angkor Wat. We got up again early and before the sun to try and beat the heat and the crowds.. We also got to experience the sun coming up on Angkor Wat. It was amazing.  Nothing prepares you for the grandeur that is Angkor Wat. I mean it’s visually impressive, but to take into mind HOW it was built and at what time period, it’s amazing such…

Cambodia Vacation

Cambodia: Ta Prohm, Banteay Samre, & Banteay Srei

Our second day in Cambodia started early before the sun comes up. We enjoyed watching the sun come up as we headed towards our first temple of the day, also starting so early allowed us to beat the heat, at least for a little bit. Our first temple of the day was Ta Prohm. It was built for the father of the King at the time, but the temple is most well known for being featured in the movie Tomb…
