Great Wolf Lodge – Sandusky, OH

We recently took our daughter to Great Wolf Lodge in Sandusky, OH for the first time and had an absolute BLAST! Kalahari trips have been an annual tradition for us (even B.K. – before kid), but we decided to check out Great Wolf Lodge since the water park is smaller and geared toward younger kids. Of course my husband planned the trip, but the three of us had such a fun time seeing Santa, reading books at night with the {Read More}

Burntwood Tavern – Best Restaurant in Brecksville, OH #burntwoodtavern

Growing up in Northeast Ohio, there are a lot of great restaurants in town. My husband (the planner) discovered Burntwood Tavern in Brecksville about a year ago when it had just opened. Of course we had to try it! When I walked in, I couldn’t believe the décor…..it was very trendy and contemporary, yet had such a cozy feel.
