2016 involved many adventures for both me and my hubby. We visited many of our favorite places; traveled for work; traveled near and far for weddings of our dear friends; and visited new destinations!
First up - Savannah! This is my favorite place & holds sentimental value to both of us. We decided to get out of town for an early anniversay trip. Check out our top Savannah adventures here.
In March I scooted off to Nashville for a bachelorette party, and it was a BLAST!
So happy I got to check this off my bucket list.
Check out my Nashville post here.
A few short weeks later I hopped off to Delray Beach Florida for another friend's bachelorette weekend. This cute little Florida town is FABULOUS and quickly became one of my favorite beach towns. The beach is white sand, the water is teal blue, and the shopping and resturants are wonderful (and within walking distance)!
Check out my favorite Delray spots here.
Every April I head to High Point, North Carolina for spring furniture market!
All of the new trends are out, and it is the hub of the international home furnishings and design industry.
Check out my re-cap of this year's trends here.
In later April my friend, Ashton, got married at a beautiful barn location in West Georgia. It was a perfect day for a perfect couple, and Conner and I feel so blessed to have been a part of it! Check out my post here.
We kicked off the month of May with another wedding in Virginia. The trip started off rocky with a delayed and cancelled flight and lost luggage, but it was quickly reedemed with a girls' night at the Grandover Resort with my bestie. The wedding day was a perfect spring afternoon--with great food, good drinks, and even better company!
Check out a full re-cap of our trip here.
After moving back to Charlotte from NYC in June, we took a break and spent a week with family celebrating the
4th of July at the Wild Dunes Resort on Isle of Palms, SC .

The end of July was wrapped up with my bestie's wedding weekend in Pittsburgh, PA!! To say we had a blast would be an understatement. It was a perfect weekend for the perfect couple, and we were so blessed to be a part of their big day.
Not to mention, Pittsburgh is one of the most fun and friendly cities I've ever visited.

After all the fun, I headed to Las Vegas for a work trip... there could be worse places right? Of course I hit up all of my favorite places and got caught up on all of the upcoming trends in home fashions. Click here to read the full post.
We wrapped up the summer with a quick trip down to Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina.
We survived a hurricane and had two beautiful days on the beach. Check it out here!
In September I went back to NYC for another work trip. Even though this trip was for work, it was one of my favorites of the year. Our hotel overlooked One World Trade Center, and I just happened to be there on the 15th anniversary of 9/11. I will never forget this special moment of being able to pay my respects to all of the heroes. I also was able to revisit all of my favorite little spots and catch up with all of my favorite NYC peeps! This city will always have a piece of my heart.
We hopped back down to the beach for the end of September and the first weekend of fall to celebrate my Paw-Paw's 80th birthday. There was a big surprise party with all of his friends and family.
Beach time and family time -- there's nothin' better!
Every November, we spent the weekend in Lexington, VA with my husband's college friends. It has officially been named "Roo-union" weekend since Virginia Military Institute's mascot is a Kangaroo.
It's always a fun time filled with friends, tailgating, and mimosas!
We wrapped up November with Thanksgiving in Georgia!
The first weekend of December we headed back to Lexington, VA for a magical holiday wedding of two dear friends.
It was the perfect way to kick off the Christmas season! This was one of my favorite posts of the year; check it out here.
And last but not least, we celebrated Christmas in Charlotte, North Carolina. We did so many festive things; be sure to check out these posts:
