Planning Your First Trip with a Guy

So the story goes…I was feeling overwhelmed. It had been over a year since I took a vacation.I started making silly mistakes with my work and feeling like I would cuss someone out over the simplest infraction. Yikes! Well, it turns out this guy I’ve been dating (we’ll call him ViC) was in need of a getaway too!

I’ve only been seeing ViC for a few months but we both agreed that we knew each other well enough to the point that it wouldn’t be “weird” to travel together. I was pleased to handle all the logistics! Neither of us had ever gone out of town with a romantic interest so so here’s what I did to make sure that we had a good experience. Continue Reading

Packing for a Trip: 5 Things

The Northeast was hit with a crazy amount of snow over the weekend and quite frankly I’m jealous! I love the snow, but gave it up when I moved to GA.

My Opinion! DC vs. GA

I recently returned home to Maryland from Georgia. And boy was it an experience! I mean that in a good way!

I was told so many different things about Atlanta…

“You’ll never find a man there, everyone is gay and the DL culture is crazy!”
“It’s a close second to DC. You will love it!”
“You’re going to encounter racism – it’s right in your face.”

Sheesh! I didn’t know if I should be excited or scared. Never one to let other people’s opinions dictate what I do, I packed my leopard print suitcase and hit the road anyway. Continue Reading

Road Trip Must Haves

Last week I made my longest solo road trip ever. I drove from Maryland to Georgia and only made two stops along the way. One to use the restroom and the other to top off my tank. It was a surprise to people that I’d pulled off an 11 hour trip with minimal stops.

“Girl, you be rolling, don’t you?” That’s what one of my grandmothers asked.

I wasn’t surprised though, because I’d prepared myself for the drive with two goals in mind: Continue Reading
