Planning our travel for 2019 with Rocketbook

It’s the new year and, therefore, time to pretend that I am super organized! I really do mean to be, it’s just not something I do really well. But I do love to plan trips! Normally we sit down and plan out the trips we want to take for the year. I scribble it down on a scrap piece of paper and promptly lose it! This year I am trying something new. I am writing down our plans for the year in my new Rocketbook. The Rocketbook is a multi use notebook that syncs to your phone. When you are…

It recently beat out Chicago to make it the 4th largest,…

Christmas Prelude in Kennebunkport, Maine

Kennebunkport, Maine, is probably best known as the summer home of the Bush family. It is a fishing village on the southern shore of Maine. In the summer it is a very busy place with tourists and beach goers. At Christmastime it is a busy place again as Kennebunkport hosts Christmas Prelude, a two-week-long Christmas festival. The festival is widely attended, and Kennebunkport has been voted the number two Christmas town in the the United States by HGTV! I have had this on my Christmas to do list for nearly a decade, but work pressures, kids school events, and general…
