Winter Activities at the Omni Homestead

Last year we visited the Omni Homestead for the very first time. We had such an incredible experience that we knew we wanted to do it all over again. We missed the chance to check out some of the winter activities last year because we visited a little too early in the season. Naturally when…

Charlotte Russe Cake

Ever had a dessert you always wanted to try? That’s the Charlotte Russe Cake for me. I’m obsessed with vintage everything, from furniture to foods.
