Unique Christmas Gifts at Dollywood

By | 2017-12-04T13:07:40+00:00 December 4th, 2017|Shopping|0 Comments

Do you have your Christmas shopping done? I hate that question. Mostly because my answer is no until maybe Dec. 23. I’m the type of person who really likes to think of unique gifts. I shudder when my mom tells me to buy socks for my dad or a gift certificate for my brother. [...]

I can’t help but smile when I tell people I work at Dollywood. And, I could possibly argue that there’s no season I’m more proud of our theme park than during Dollywood’s Smoky Mountain Christmas presented by Humana. It truly is a place that inspires wonder, excitement and awe of the holidays. We’re intentional [...]

Don’t get me wrong—I love summer as much as the next girl. I love summer clothes, summer vacations, summer cookouts, the warm summer sun… But, there’s something exciting when you feel that first fall breeze of the season. Fall ushers in newness: a new school year, new football season, new wardrobe rotation, new traditions. [...]

You blink and it’s gone. Summer is almost gone! How did that happen? [How does it ever happen??] Okay, here’s what you need to do: be truly intentional with your time over the next six weeks and you still have the opportunity to squeeze out every drop of fun in the sunshine that you [...]

National Ice Cream Day at Dollywood

By | 2017-07-27T17:22:42+00:00 July 13th, 2017|Dining|Comments Off on National Ice Cream Day at Dollywood

I can pretend to need an excuse to talk about ice cream (National Ice Cream Day is always the third Sunday in July—which means THIS weekend!), but between you, me and everyone who knows me—I don’t need an excuse. I love ice cream. And, they say you talk about what occupies your thoughts, [...]

Splashin’ Around Town

With motherhood comes many of those, “I never thought I’d (fill in the blank here)” realizations. Dinnertime conversations, for example, can include topics I’d never DREAM to discuss above a whisper three years ago. (Somehow, I did not know that the tiniest humans can make the BIGGEST, smelliest messes?!) One of these newer realizations [...]

I looked over my notes one more time. My vote would be the tie-breaker. This girls’ weekend in the Smoky Mountains was full of promise—three nights with good friends AND three nights without wife/mom responsibilities. This decision is BIG: resort stay or luxury cabin for our home base? One of my friends argues that [...]
