A Weekend in Stillwater, Oklahoma

I’ll be the first one to agree with you here. Oklahoma?  Have you ever heard of anyone taking a vacation in Oklahoma? I hadn’t. But here I was, traveling to Stillwater, Oklahoma for a long weekend fam trip with my new husband and Seven, my son.  My second time ever in the state, only preceded […]
