Christmas in New York City

Christmas; my favorite time of the year! When thinking about Christmas, many things spring to mind like hot chocolate by an open fire, sledding on bright white snow, and the joy of simply exchanging gifts.

Quiet Afternoons in Winchester, England

After a wonderful and glorious two week cruise for my 21st birthday (which you can read more about in this post!), it was time for a little exploring.

My family and I planned to stay in Winchester, England for a total of three days to rest up and get ready for another cruise we had planned for that week. The two weeks before had been so much fun but I was mentally and physically exhausted so this was the time for some much needed rest.
