Late this summer, we decided to alter our diet to be pescatarian. This was a bit tough because my love for buffalo wings is strong and Landon loves to eat all the duck/rabbit/lamb/<insert other precious baby animals here>. Also, I grew up on a beef farm so red meat has always been a big part… Continue reading Our adventures as pescatarians
August 26th marked one year of living in Chapel Hill. We still answer “yes” when people ask if we are from Charlotte. Afterall, we spent almost a decade calling the Queen City home.

Last weekend, we decided to take a daytrip to Saxapahaw, NC. There was a holiday market happening and we thought we might find some unique gifts and/or our annual ornament that we collect. The town is only 20 miles away but we took back roads so it took us 35-40 minutes to get there. And… Continue reading Saturday in Saxapahaw
