In honor of UNC basketball season kicking off tonight, I wanted to share one of Chapel Hill’s hidden gems – the Carolina Basketball Museum! I say hidden only because I’ve grown up as a Tar Heel fan and lived near the campus my whole life, but I’d never been! So we decided we had to… Read More The Carolina Basketball Museum
In my efforts to hang out with my bar-studying husband this summer, our sweet spot ended up being the “go somewhere to study” date.

Summertime studying is always a womp-womp. No one wants to do it, no matter how old you are. And my poor husband has to dedicate his entire summer to preparing for the bar.
