Travel Diary: Desert Renewal in Phoenix, Arizona – Day 1

Camelback Mountain

Phoenix, Arizona is mostly known for its summer heat, but Phoenix is looking exceptionally lovely today as we are dealing with the Polar Vortex.

Qatar Airways: Delights to Fly For

Dining at 30,000 feet has changed at Qatar Airways. I recently spent an evening testing Qatar Airways new business class menu. Qatar is a one of the few five star airlines in the world. Have you heard of them? Probably not, but you will. Doha is hosting the 2022 World Cup and Qatar is going [...]

3 Years! That Went By Fast…


{Feluca sailing in Aswan, Egypt} Today I celebrate my third wedding anniversary. In the social media world, Tuesdays are for travel. It’s crazy how fast the time has passed.

Deep Creek Porch

I’m headed to the lake this weekend. It’s an annual trip that started once I met The Donald. We rent a huge house, cook, relax, laugh and just have a good time. I look forward to this trip all year. I think it’s because I’m not the one planning it. I get to have someone [...]

Lands End Getaway Essentials

It is travel season and I have a calendar full of travel this summer. I have my particular travel style which is functional, cute and with a little jazz. I like to be comfortable, but definitely not “I just rolled out of bed” look that I seem to see a lot at the airport. So [...]
