I’m excited to announce the beginning of a new series. Scavenger Hunts and Walking Tours that can be done pretty much anywhere you find yourself. Read on for the first installment. Enjoy, and keep forging your significance! Perhaps it’s a result of my life-long obsession with The Amazing Race, but I’ve always loved scavenger hunts.… Read More Race around the golden city
Last weekend I went to a board game convention. It’s been a long time since I’ve been so nervous.
Wahoo, interjection: an expression of joy. Wahoo, noun: a large game and food fish found in warm seas. Wahoo, noun: an amazing restaurant, full of joy, warmth, and great food. That’s what’s printed on the menus of a delightful little eatery in downtown Decatur.
The fall and winter of 2015 were nothing short of manic for me and my husband. Between planning for a late September wedding, a plethora of birthdays and anniversaries, and making the three hour drive to see my folks no less than 3 times between Thanksgiving and Christmas, by the last week of the year… Read More Why you should run away

Continuing in the theme of great fall-themed activities, let’s talk about another seasonal classic – corn mazes. A great one just north of Atlanta is Uncle Shuck’s Corn Maze. Uncle Shuck’s is open Fridays through Sundays in October and November. They also have a haunted maze that’s open every weekend in October.
Fall is a great time for seasonal activities. There are festivals, plays, parades, and all sorts of other events that only happen once a year. One of my personal favorites is pumpkin carving. It doesn’t really take very long, so you can easily do it in a single evening after work. If you’d rather take… Read More An Easy Fall Activity That Costs Less Than $10
