Our last morning on the beach

Here are a few photos of our last morning on the beach. We snuck out in our pajamas before it got too hot or crowded.  There was a beautiful glow as we got our feet wet, did some yoga and even found a large crab. As always it has been lovely to get away, but... Read more »

What should I do while in New York?

What should I do while in New York?
I am off to spend 48 hours in the city that never sleeps. There is so much to see in New York and never enough time. I’m looking forward to good food, friends and a Broadway play. Anything else I must do while in New York City?  P.S. My new favorite salad and a short... Read more »

Dog Sledding in Bayfield Wisconsin

Dog Sledding in Bayfield Wisconsin
My parents are way more adventurous then I am.  They have done everything from zip lining in Honduras to night diving in Bora Bora. Their newest idea was to take our family dog sledding in Bayfield, Wisconsin.  The idea sounded fun before we knew this was going to be the coldest and longest winter ever.... Read more »

Ten Must See Sites in Paris

Ten Must See Sites in Paris
Before we left for our anniversary celebration in Paris, I searched for an easy, non-complex list of sites that were crucial to see while we were overseas.  Instead, I was bombarded with detailed itineraries that made vacation seem anything but relaxing. My husband and I enjoy sightseeing, but also enjoy unwinding on vacation.  While we... Read more »

Do vacations improve communication in marriage?

Do vacations improve communication in marriage?
I’m still recovering from jet lag from, in my eyes, the perfect vacation – six days in Paris with my husband.  We slept late, leisurely enjoyed decadent meals, walked, explored and talked. We have not had the opportunity to talk this much in years. On the long plane ride home, we discussed why our communication... Read more »

Visit the Statue of Liberty and bring patience

Visit the Statue of Liberty and bring patience
I’ve always hoped to visit The Statue of Liberty during my short New York vacations.  In the past our weekends in the Big Apple were always packed with late nights out, Broadway plays and fabulous meals with no time to devote an entire day to seeing the symbol of our country. My son, the one... Read more »

Leaving Kids Makes for a Better Mother

Leaving Kids Makes for a Better Mother
We celebrated my mom’s birthday in Big Sur, California this past weekend.  Have you been there?  It is a wooded small town next to the mountains on the ocean with seemingly ideal weather.  I haven’t yet figured out why everyone doesn’t live there. I’m aware how lucky I am to have the option of leaving... Read more »

Hurricane Irene Changed Our Weekend Plans

We’ve planned for months to head to Philadelphia this weekend to celebrate Bubby’s 90th Birthday.  The party sadly got canceled when news spread of the weather conditions heading out East.  Our suitcase was packed and my husband had already taken off work, so we made a spontaneous decision to head to a nearby waterpark for the...

New York, Home & Meatless Monday

I just returned home from a weekend away.  Traveling to New York and New Jersey through five year old’s eyes opened my own eyes.  Energetic, entertained and engulfed in his current surroundings.  I experienced some bad travel moments with this same child.  At nine months flying to Philadelphia with my mother-in-law.  There was nothing that could...
