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, ...

Michigan Sunsets

When we got to our rental house in Michigan, this is the view I saw from the back deck. Bells rang I tell you. We stayed near Saugatuk, a cute artsy town on Lake Michigan which was a great place to grab dinner or ice cream.

Our Trip to Maui: Part I

I have now been to Wailea three times (first with my ...
