Dialing Up Your Intuition

Happy 2020! I’m sorry I’ve been away for a couple of weeks – totally not like me – I’ve been dealing with one of those situations where life stands still for you but continues to rush on for the rest of the world. I won’t bore you with the details, well maybe someday I will, […]

Zero Proof Cocktails Anyone?

I am working toward my itsy bitsy teenie weenie yellow polka dot bikini bod. No, who am I kidding, I’m working toward my, let’s not look like a breaching yellow submarine in a one-piece bod! And I’ve realized there are certain things that I just can’t give up or cut back on, namely the piping […]

A Real Hallmark Christmas

So, I might have a Hallmark Countdown to Christmas obsession. This is something that my husband and boys will never understand but have accepted as fact this time of year. Yes, the Hallmark channel will be on all the time. Yes, even when I’ve seen the movie before. And yes, even though the plots are […]

Riding the Atlanta BeltLine

If you have not heard, the city of Atlanta has embarked on a massive, in-town, transportation and economic re-development project called the Atlanta BeltLine. By paving over the old railroad tracks that circle the city, the vision is to create a 22-mile loop of trails and parks, linking 45 neighborhoods. The corridor is designed to […]

Ghost Kitchens. Friend or Foe?

This quote from a recent Forbes article really scares me. “In high labor cost markets, ghost restaurants can bring down the price of handmade meals, and at the end of the day, convenience will always win. Cooking on a daily basis is a mandatory chore that many people hate. By enhancing the whole value chain […]

Day trip – Chattanooga

Atlanta is a fantastic home base for visiting great destinations in every direction! I happen to love spending time in Tennessee and with Chattanooga an hour-and-a-half away on an easy drive with interstate or scenic back road options, I’m in. Day trips are great because they don’t have to be planned out in advance, if […]

Meet meet at the Plaza?

No not that one, the one in Kansas City. The Country Club Plaza, aka The Plaza. For several square blocks you step out of the Midwest and directly into Seville, Spain. Sounds odd I know. And it gets better because the Plaza is nestled in the middle of some of the most gorgeous neighborhoods you’ll […]

Historic Requa Inn

Sometimes a hotel is just a hotel, and other times you can’t wait to go back. The Historic Requa Inn (pronounced Rek-wah) is located above the Klamath River, just before it enters the Pacific Ocean. This 100+-year-old inn is the perfect spot to make home-base to explore the wilds of Northern California, both ocean side […]

One Night in Tampa

If you only have one night in this city on the bay, Tampa Bay, book it for Bern’s Steakhouse. Save your pennies to splurge on this well worth the money treat and come hungry… very, very hungry. And I’m serious about having the reservation, probably at least a month out, mine was 3+ months out. […]

Winter Wonderland aka Whistler, Canada

A few days in British Columbia was just the ticket to celebrate and play in full on winter. I love everything about a great ski village, including the cold. Whistler delivers a classic experience linking three wonderful villages (Whistler, Blackcomb, and Olympic Village) together with easy, scenic walking paths. The two-hour scenic, Sea to Sky […]
