Closing Ceremony

THE UNIVERSE ALIGNED! (Praise the Lord, Hallelujah). For some miraculous reason the universe aligned and I got to spend a few days having an absolute blast with a great group of girls (and one guy) in SOCHI, RUSSIA (!!!), for the 2014 WINTER OLYMPICS! We arrived in Adler, the former marshland that was built up […]

Grand Central Market Mural

Continuing in my theme of avoiding all this cold, I’ll tell you all about my last visit to Los Angeles. It wasn’t my first trip there, but it was the first time I had a little bit of time to explore. My fabulous husband, took it upon himself to do a bit of research on […]

  We arrived at the Vuyani Safari Lodge around 4pm having successfully managing not to hit a single impala on the dirt road leading to the hotel. Much of the staff was outside awaiting our arrival with hot towels and warm smiles. I don’t think I had ever been that happy to arrive to a […]

  The next day the sun greeted us bright and early with the promise of a better day. We took a shower in “Duck and Trout’s” moldy bathroom. I’m happy to say neither of us walked away with a foot infection… From there we made our way to the “Old Transvaal Inn” for breakfast. It […]

  Most honeymoons start out a day or two after the wedding. The couple hops on a plane and heads off to their romantic destination of choice. But heavens knows we couldn’t have done that, way too simple. We had to make things a little more complicated. Ours was about five months after the wedding. […]

festival venezia 2013 vers2

On the topic of Venice, I was there just a few days ago on occasion of the 70th Venice Film Festival. What comes to mind when I think of that particular trip is COOL! VERY COOL! The young director, Alesso Fava, (the hubby’s good friend) won an award from the Bienneale di Venezia and Gucci. […]

  Just outside La Boqueria Market is the Escriba “pastry shop”. Pastry shop in quotes because it is a pastry shop and so much more. It’s really a little boutique where sweets, and arts, and history combine. As the beautiful art Nouveau sign on the store front demonstrates this pastry shop is the result of […]

Barcelona can vila - low res

I’ve been to Barcelona on two occasions, and both trips couldn’t have been more different from the other. Perhaps the only real similarity between both trips was that I visited La Boqueria Market on both occasions. That’s it! My first trip to Barcelona was over New Year’s.

Bella Nashville - Pizzeria

The other fabulous thing about Nashville’s farmer’s market was all the ready made food stands.  Food purveyors ranged from a vintage styled cupcake stand to an incredibly appealing take-away Indian food restaurant. While surveying all the Market had to offer, I came across “Bella Nashville”, perhaps the BEST Naples style pizza I have ever had […]
