Wildseed Farms

The Texas hill country sure is a sight for sore eyes. It’s worth a trip for flower enthusiasts at least once in the springtime just so you can marvel at the wildflowers. One of my favorites places on the famous Texas Hwy 290 Wine Trail between Fredericksburg and Johnson City is Wildseed Farms, the largest…

Spring Picnic at Kuhlman Cellars

I had the best time visiting my friends at beautiful Kuhlman Cellars down in the Texas hill country last week! I spent my last normal day of 2020 before all hell broke loose sipping wine at Kuhlman Cellars so it holds a special place in my heart and I’ve been dying to go back. My…

Tanglewood Resort on Lake Texoma

Last week I took a trip to Tanglewood Resort on Lake Texoma on the Texas/Oklahoma border and thought I’d tell you all about it for Travel Tuesday. Since Tanglewood is dog friendly, I even brought my Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Henry along for the trip! If you’re looking for a dog-friendly weekend trip that’s just…

A Trip to Lake Garda

I have a particularly exciting Travel Tuesday post for you today!

The family has been making wine in northern…

I visited Olympia back in 2009 while studying abroad in…

Discovering Epidaurus

For a theatre nerd like me, Epidaurus is a must. I visited the ancient site during my time studying abroad in Greece back in 2009. I know that’s been a while and cameras have improved since then, but as part of my Throwback Travel Series, I’m telling you about some of my favorite places I…

Visiting Ancient Mycenae

One of my favorite things I did while studying abroad in Greece was visiting the archaeological site of Mycenae. I went to Mycenae in 2009, but I’m missing travel terribly right now so I’m busying myself writing about some of my favorite places I went before I started The Rose Table. So here we go,…

Fall in Love with Nafplio, Greece

When people ask me about my favorite place I’ve ever visited, I always tell them Nafplio, Greece. I spent a couple of days in Nafplio when I studied abroad in Greece in 2009 and it forever has a place in my heart. I’ve always wanted to tell you about this charming town and I thought…
