Toasting Traditions: Valentine’s Day

After several years of lackluster, yet exorbitantly expensive, dinners out we decided to see what fun we could have with the money if we stayed in instead. It turns out, the average American man will spend around $250 on gifts for the annual holiday. And, the average city-dwelling American date ends up running around $400-$500 per couple. Wow! Noah and I decided early on that the uncharges for holiday dates just weren’t worth it. That could be airfare to Paris… And, we’d rather use it that way. Fast forward to 2021, and most Americans should be staying home anyway! So, let some “boring” stay-at-home V-Day veterans help you spice up your holiday as a couple (and a bonus near the end for my single friends, too!).

Toasting American Castles

There’s something about wintertime that summons my love of all things historical. Turn on Bridgerton or Downtown Abbey, pull some scones out of the oven, and have a cup of tea. The only thing that would make it better is if I were in a castle or a manor… Do we even have those in this country? Yes! Yes we do! Check it out!
