tahitian sneak peek.

D and I are finally home from our beloved Tahiti. And while I did come back relaxed and a nice shade of bronze, I also came back sick. I’m pretty sure spending 18 hours of travel time behind the “iron curtain” (i.e. first class), has something to do with my incessant hacking. I may have Moorea’s…

I’ve been putting this post off for a while– mainly because it’s my 100th!!! Nothing seemed quite right as far as a proper celebration of my centennial post. Honestly, I never thought I would get to 100 this time last year. And not only that, but almost 7,000 readers ain’t half bad either.  I cannot…

boston.

I love this city. Plain and simple. Another perk of traveling to Vermont for Paul and Cody’s Wedding, was getting to fly into Logan Airport in Boston for a quick overnight stay in the beautiful city on the water. And it was seemingly meant to be, that D and I were on the last remaining…

the vermont wedding.

D and I spent our long weekend in Vermont for an amazing wedding weekend. Paul and Cody chose TheTrapp Family Lodge in Stowe, Vermont for their wedding. I had never considered Vermont to be on my list of places to travel, so I was overly surprised by the beauty and seclusion of the state and the…

meet pablo.

It’s officially wedding week! I’m pumped. But before I go into detail about our upcoming trip, I’d like you to meet Pablo, better known to most of the world as Paul. I don’t have an adolescent memory that doesn’t include Paul. The details as to how we became great friends routinely escape my memory, but…

new orleans: better than ever.

If you ever have the opportunity, head to New Orleans for St. Patrick’s Day. I most certainly was not prepared for all that New Orleans delivered during St. Patrick’s Day weekend. I figured young Tulane co-eds would don their “Irish I had a Beer” t-shirts and weave drunkenly through the people on Bourbon Street- – and…

facebook is your friend.

I love Facebook. Not only because you can keep up with old and new friends, but also for the travel deals and restaurant specials. And no, to my weary readers, Facebook is not the devil and going to ruin us all. Vegas is a perfect example of how social media can work in your favor. A quick…
