Palm Springs getaway with two toddlers

I was getting itchy feet. It had been exactly two weeks since our last trip (a brief visit to Tennessee for a friend’s wedding) and I was ready to hit the road. I knew that I wanted our next trip to be somewhere warm (but not nearly as humid as Tennessee was) and that the kiddos would be accompanying us. […]

Dashing through the snow for holiday travel

As is our tradition, as soon as we landed and picked up our rental car, we headed straight […]

Pretty Gritty Tours

We love Tacoma. True, we are full-time professional travel videographers and writers who spend a large majority of our time on the road, but we absolutely adore our town of Tacoma too. That’s why, when I came to Tawny with a long-held dream of mine that would let invest in this city, she was happy to manifest it. Ever since […]
