The Covered Bridge Festival is an event that I’ve been meaning to attend for years, and always seem to miss it. This year, I made a point to finally check it out and spent a few hours on an unusually warm October afternoon walking around the festival area in Bridgeton.
A visit to Indianapolis Home-a-Rama has become an annual event and is a great way to see beautiful homes and get inspiration for design and decor for your own space. Usually held in the Westfield area, the Home-a-Rama features a number of custom-built homes that are open to view. This year’s Home-a-Rama was held in The Lakes at Grassy Branch in Westfield and featured a total of 5 houses. Tickets to the event ran $15 – $18.
Located in Westfield, the Rail Epicurean is housed in a converted multi-level barn and has a cool, laid-back vibe. I’m not exactly how I first found out about Rail Epicurean, but I’m definitely glad that I did.
After a spectacular day of exploring Savannah for my birthday, I was ready for some downtime on the beach. Unfortunately for me, winds were at around 25-30 mph and the sky was overcast on the first of my two planned lazy beach days, so instead of laying on the beach, I ended up just doing some exploring.
Savannah’s always been on my list to visit, and I was excited for this Savannah birthday trip for weeks beforehand. Only having one day set aside to spend in Savannah made it tough to narrow down the best way to use such a limited amount of time, but pre-planning the first part of the day and leaving the evening open-ended worked out pretty well to get a good feel for this historic city without feeling rushed.
