Tony and I love venturing out to Durham. I feel like every time I head there, I find a place that I just fall in love with instantly.

Starting the New Year in style: Carolina Beach

Tony and I spent New Year’s 2009 at Downtown Raleigh’s Acorn Drop. It was fun….until the cold air sent us hailing a taxi and racing home to see the ball drop in Times Square. For 2010, we wanted to do something a little special. Continue reading
