A Romantic Getaway

For our anniversary, my husband planned a romantic getaway to the Ritz-Carlton at Dove Mountain and we had a blast!  Anyone who knows me knows that I love the Ritz-Carlton.  They offer the best service, and although I know there are other hotels that have great...

Romantic Getaway, Part II

During our stay at the Ritz-Carlton for our anniversary, Matt rushed me off to the spa.  He was gearing up for football for the day, and I was getting ready for a day of relaxation.  I actually had my first massage at a Ritz-Carlton hotel many, many years ago.  During...

Music to My Ears

If you had been there, you would have pulled the one you love close and reminisced about the day you met.  If you had been there, you would have felt relaxed, fine and on cloud nine...if only you had been there.  I'm talking about jazz in the park at LaEncantada.  The...

New Orleans — The Big Easy

It was great to get away from the desert and get back to Louisiana.  I love New Orleans --- the food, the music, and the fun!  I had a blast in the Big Easy and got a taste of everything I have been missing in the desert --- gumbo, shrimp, oysters, crab, and the list...

French Quarter

There is no place like New Orleans.  I get excited all over again every time I go.  We were just here during the Thanksgiving holidays with family and friends, but of course, I can never get enough of the N.O. You know I always have to stop here.  Cafe Du Monde is...

Miraval Resort & Spa, Part I

The hubster and I decided to get away and leave reality behind.  We did just that by going to Miraval Resort & Spa. I have heard so many wonderful things about this resort, so I always wondered, "What's the big deal?" Oprah and Gayle went on a retreat here, Bill...

Lovin’ New Orleans

We always visit New Orleans during the holidays.  I love this city.  Many people think of partying when they think of New Orleans, but New Orleans has so much more to offer --- meeting wonderful people, eating delicious Cajun cuisine, shopping, art, and jazz, just to...

There’s No Place Like Home

Home is truly where my heart is.  I miss being away from my family, but I am so grateful that we have been able to see each other twice within the past three months.  My parents were in Atlanta during Memorial Day weekend, so I visited them and other family members in...

Holiday Travel

Traveling can be difficult, and it is especially difficult when you have a little one.  SJ is only 16 months and has been on a plane 4 times.  I traveled alone with her twice, and it was not easy.  These are the things that get me through a long day of flying the...

The Henderson Beach Resort

This summer has been wonderful!  The kids had a blast, and I had a much needed break from the hustle and bustle life can bring. Summer was filled with great vacations, visiting family and friends, and just relaxing. One vacation was extra special to us, not just...
