Travelogue: Kauai

[caption id="attachment_1682" align="aligncenter" width="750"] Sunset Dinner at The Beach House in Poi Pu[/caption] Aloha! We left for Kauai on New Years Day - the perfect way to kick off the New Year! Personally, I am not a big fan of New Years Day as it is always cold and usually just spent lying around and watching ...

A Weekend Getaway

I have been terrible about posting here the last few months, but I want to get back into it, for myself if nothing else! I love having this blog to look back on and see what we did and share with family and friends. That said, we've been pretty busy lately and the holidays are always full of fun, so I plan to get back on here ...

Union Pier, Michigan

We spent the week before the 4th of July in Union Pier, MI. Since I've lived in Chicago my family has gone up to this area most summers, as it is an easy 90 minute drive yet feels worlds away.

Expeliarmus!) - and the stunning Cornwall. I'll start with Cornwall. We were determined to visit Cornwall on this trip because my ...

In the photo below you can see it is full of ancient stone buildings and ...

London Calling

Hello! I have been MIA on here  lately...partly due to the fact that we did a trip to England, and maybe partly because I've been reading and completely sucked into Outlander and thus not blogging :) We did 10 days in England: 4 in London and 6 in Bradford-On-Avon from whence we did several small excursions in the area. ...

Welcome Brunch & Wine Tasting

As I wrap up my self-proclaimed wedding week, the final activity of our destination wedding weekend was the Friday morning brunch followed by wine tasting.  We had our room block at The Silverado Resort, which was a perfect spot for our guests. It is a beautiful resort with lots to do (golf, spa, tennis, near wineries, ...
