Harbour Island - beach and vegetation

Sometimes you just need to escape. The why can change. It could be because you live in Massachusetts and there’s seven feet of snow outside your door. Or you could simply be tired of the lemons life has been sending your way. If you’re like me you very dutifully make the best darn lemonade possible […]

Le Sanglier Paresseux - outdoor 2

For me travel is about food. I have a seriously hard time characterizing a vacation as good, if I didn’t eat well at the destination. I think it’s pretty easy to find info on what sites to sees when you get to wherever you are going. The real hard part is finding good places to […]

B&B Chambre de sejour avec vue - outside

I am not being irrational. Right? You agree with me don’t you? Even if this place is gorgeous? Not wanting to spend our first anniversary in the hotel he visited with his ex of 10 years. I mean this place has absolutely great reviews. From just about everybody that counts in the travel industry like […]

Cournille - property

There is something incredibly romantic about the Provence region. What exactly makes it romantic? I would say it’s the huge expanses of relatively uninhabited space. The fact that you can travel for miles and miles on lavender and grazing sheep lined roads and only encounter a few other human beings along the way. And when […]

Bread - Apt Market Provence

  I absolutely insisted that we celebrate our anniversary taking a few days for ourselves. After a bit of nagging (but not too much) the hubby reorganized his work schedule so we could go to Provence. Now I’m pretty sure you’re all thinking I picked the location. I didn’t. It was my husband. He’s been […]

Someone is accusing my ex, Mr. Big, of being involved in an international ponzi scheme. A few months ago, one of the blog readers asked me “So what happened to Mr. Big?” I thought, what did happen to Mr. Big? It had been so long since I had last heard from him or even thought […]

adrian tropical menu

Last Ash Wednesdays I found myself in a strange predicament. I was in Santo Domingo with “Juan” (not his real name). Juan was telling me that I shouldn’t be eating meat, all the while trying to get into my pants! In my non denominational Christian view of the world there was so much wrong with […]

copper onion logo

I’m currently obsessed with a restaurant in Salt Lake City called The Copper Onion. I’m actually so obsessed with this place that it could just be my favorite restaurant in the US right now. If it’s not, cause we’ll I’d have to think long and hard about all the restaurants I’ve been too and looking […]

K-Pauls-Louisiana-Kitchen-New-Orleans

Since we are on the topic of Po’ Boys, it only seems fit that I share with you all where I had perhaps the most delicious oyster po’ boy of my life. A few years ago, not too long before meeting my husband I dated a guy I’m going to call “Tuna Man”. Now ladies […]
