Every year I try to think of something new for our fall entry way and then fall back to my faithful decorations- four potted mums with a couple of pumpkins and a fall wreath on the door. It's cute but basic... maybe next year my entryway will be as beautiful... Continue »

We are of course planners at heart and so part of the enjoyment of a holiday for us is researching a trip and uncovering those hidden treasures off the beaten track.
