AMERICAN ROAD TRIP // HOT SPRINGS

Travel

This weekend, Baxter and I decided to stop through Hot Springs, Arkansas on our way home from a family vacation at Lake Ouachita. I visited Hot Springs as a child and have vague memories of the bath houses, but as with everything, appreciated the experience so much more now that I am an adult.

We parked at one end of the main street, walked past all of the bath houses, down to the historic Arlington Hotel for lunch, and then back up the other side of the street alongside the shops.

Here is my photo journal of our two hours in Hot Springs:

This week on Friendly Friday I am introducing you to my friend and new Dallas local, Mackenzie Horan of Design Darling.

I met Mackenzie several years ago through blogging, a career that she began at a very young age. Mackenzie is one of the most successful women in the blogging space and she now has her own store – a place where I like to find unique gifts for (myself) friends and family.

Take a peak inside her new Dallas digs:
