Do you know how important luggage tags are when you travel? Discovering that your suitcase has not met you in baggage claim is never a fun experience and it can be an incredibly inconvenient and disruptive component to your trip. In fact on an overseas flight to Sweden, my husband's suitcase got lost due to a canceled flight and he found himself without his belonging for nearly his entire trip.
Key West. For me, the name conjures visions of spectacular sunsets, crystal blue water, waking up to the sound of crowing roosters, and warm ocean breezes. It's a place we adore and find ourselves returning to over and over again.

As we travel, we enjoy botanical gardens of all shapes and sizes but at home, we are lucky enough to have Norfolk Botanical Garden on our back doorstep where we can enjoy beautiful flowers all spring and summer and a spectacular holiday light display in the winter. This family-friendly spot is a great place to host a wedding or just spend an afternoon.
