The desert calls

Thursday, May 3, 2018

  Chris and I like to getaway as often as we can. Sometimes that means short trips within the Southern California area, but I’ll take it. I still feel like I’m curbing my travel craving. Due to our insane schedules and levels of stress, we try to aim for MAX relaxation. We had a Boston trip planned for a while, but when we realized that we had a few extra days off together, we decided to book it to the desert for some hot sun and pool time, before braving the Boston cold. We have both been to Palm Springs…

Our Quick Getaway in Temecula; to uncork and unwind

Monday, December 11, 2017

Breathe in the relaxation. Can you feel it? I can relax at home pretty decently, BUT… sometimes being away from home helps me completely detach from all distractions. Chris and I find it easier to do “staycations” sometimes, for lack in ability to get long periods of consecutive days off. In Southern California, that still gives us a wide array of options! Chris and I were able to link up our schedules for three days straight (YAY), so we took advantage and headed out to Temecula, a small town about an hour and a half from our home. Temecula is…

Holiday travel must-haves

Tuesday, December 5, 2017

  Oh holiday travel… how I love you so! It seems like the holidays were always filled with travel, for me. Since I went to undergraduate college in Arizona, it always required a flight home to Michigan for the holidays. I was a pro at checking in for Southwest flights and lining up hours before, in order to get the seat I wanted. Always donned in a Juicy Couture outfit and UGG boots (yes I lived in the desert and it was extremely hot and UGGs were not necessary), I braved the flights to and from Arizona State each year…

Michigan Love

Wednesday, August 2, 2017

You all can probably tell that I love California, but Michigan will forever be my home sweet home. I was thrilled to have the time and opportunity to head home for a little summer getaway this past month. Even better, is that I was able to take Chris with me. He had never been to Michigan, but I knew he would appreciate the greenery and laid-back atmosphere. Well, I was right! Cue the extended length blog post… I hope you enjoy! We started in my hometown, where my best friend from high school was getting married. It was pretty amazing…

MY MINI BIRTHDAY GETAWAY

Monday, May 15, 2017

If you’re like me, you love birthdays. I don’t just enjoy my own birthday; I enjoy ALL birthdays! I feel birthdays are like holidays. They bring friends and family together, there is always good food (and hopefully cake), and it’s a day to reflect on the positive things in life.     After 31 years, I feel like I have finally found a good life balance, and my true happiness. This year, it wasn’t about what I was doing or whom I was hanging out with. It didn’t matter how many people came to my party or if there were…
