| Zion For The Day-Tripper: What To Do When You’re Just Passing Through |

Earlier this year, I was assigned two work trips back to back in Las Vegas, Nevada and Salt Lake City Utah. I had a two-day break in between each one, and rather than flying home to Virginia to unpack/ repack, I decided to make the trek with some co-workers by car. What started as a… Continue reading | Zion For The Day-Tripper: What To Do When You’re Just Passing Through |

I wish I could say that I pack light, but I would be lying to you. Goodness, I just got back from a trip to Miami last week and I had, not one, not two, but three bags in tow. (In my defense, it was my sister’s bachelorette party and I had one entire duffel… Continue reading |Summer Spontaneity: My Must-Have Trunk Trinkets|

| Coffee Date Conversations: What’s Currently Brewing- April |

This entry is long overdue, but I figured that since this is the first time actually ever drafting up a “love list,” I could take my time.

| The Canadian Rockies Called, And I Had To Go: Alberta Exploration, Part II |

Fall is officially here: I can’t believe that another season is already in the rearview. While I am quite ready for throw blankets and backyard fires, butternut squash soup and hazelnut coffee, tree transformations and all of the apple-picking, pumpkin picking, Halloween candy distribution and Thanksgiving food comas that this time of year brings, I… Continue reading | The Canadian Rockies Called, And I Had To Go: Alberta Exploration, Part II |

| Strolling Down Memory Lane, Past Rome, Florence, & Chianti, Italy |

Imagine this: You are embarking on a twelve-day journey to Italy with your own “famiglia” by your side. As you board the aircraft, soon departing for Rome, you smile knowing that your dream apartment in a foreign paradise awaits you.

| A Backyard Agenda: Fairfax, VA |

The idea of a long weekend without plans is a foreign concept to me: It feels unsettling in my very core (although an uncluttered agenda might truly do me some good.) Nevertheless, as June came to a close I felt compelled to start looking for things to do in our area, Northern Virginia day trips… Continue reading | A Backyard Agenda: Fairfax, VA |
