  • Brezel or Pretzel? I will take two!

    April 20, 2020 by

    Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought I would have fallen in love with Germany. It truly was never on my radar of must see places. So, why is that? I truly have no idea but thank goodness I have always been up for an adventure and ready to travel to any new… Read more

  • Isabela Island, the Galapagos – Ceviche anyone?

    March 20, 2020 by

    Of all my travels, this is one that transcends time and place. It is as magical the third time as it was the first. The Galapagos Islands are a must see! From elementary school to college, we learned about Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution. We studied origins and how species have evolved over time. We… Read more

  • P is for Puerto Vallarta & Pineapple Chicken Fajitas

    January 19, 2020 by

    Back in 2006, we had the opportunity to explore the state of Jalisco in Mexico. Jalisco is the western most state adjoining the Pacific Ocean. It is known for agave, tequila, and mariachi bands. We landed in Guadalajara after the Christmas holidays but the decorations were still adorning the beautiful landmarks within the city. We… Read more

    January 2, 2020 by

    Happy New Year! Happy New Decade! Here’s to the 20’s! Sorry I could not help myself. I tell you what, the teen’s, is that what we are calling the last decade? Well my teen years were awesome – so much happened in just ten years. I truly feel like it was one of the best… Read more

  • You better Belize it – Amazing Pineapple Jam

    December 18, 2019 by

    On this cold December day, I cannot help but think about the warm sun, sand, and the Caribbean Sea. The smell of salt in the air and the breeze off the ocean. You see back in May, I had the opportunity to travel to Belize on a study abroad with some outstanding students. We traveled… Read more

  • Duck Duck…Peking Duck

    November 29, 2019 by

    Flashback November 2003, my first taste of duck. I just said yes and I do to my best friend in front of friends and family in my beautiful hometown.

  • Yellowstone and Bison Steaks, its what’s for dinner

    November 14, 2019 by

    We took a trip out west a few years ago. We visited Spokane, Washington, parts of Montana, Wyoming and made a pitstop at Yellowstone National Park. We went towards the end of April, part of the park was still closed but it was absolutely breathtaking the sites and of course Old Faithful was faithful. It… Read more

  • Oklahoma is the place to be – enchilada style!

    November 1, 2019 by

    It has been a while since I last visited Oklahoma but oh how I love this southwestern state. Several years ago, my family was headed out for a family vacation out west. Cue: National Lampoons Vacation theme song. I had just turned 16 and had my permit. My dad let me drive several hours from… Read more

  • Shrimpin’ in Orange Beach, Alabama

    October 22, 2019 by

    We just got back from a fabulous fall break in Orange Beach, Alabama. I hate to admit it but I had never heard of Orange Beach until my cousin talked to me about renting a condo with them. For those inquiring minds like me, I immediately googled favorite stops and things to do in and… Read more

  • The Emerald City – Seattle

    October 5, 2019 by

    Oh Seattle! How I love this city with its eclectic culture, breathtaking views, and marvelous cuisine. I first went to Seattle in January of 2010 for a conference. It was actually warmer in Seattle than in Kentucky that year, which blew my mind. My idea was mountains, January, and the Pacific Northwest would be a… Read more

  • M.I.C.K.E.Y. M.O.U.S.E. Mickey Mouse!!!!

    September 18, 2019 by

    There is truly no place in the world like Disney World! It does not matter your age, the magic is alive in the characters, food, cast members (employees), and the ambience of the parks. My first trip was after I completed my qualifying exams for my doctorate. Yes, I was an adult in my thirties,… Read more

  • Ireland, I am coming home

    September 12, 2019 by

    For our tenth anniversary, we traveled to Ireland and did a CIE tour. As a little girl, I was fascinated with Ireland. I had posters of Ireland scattered across my walls. I am not sure where the fascination came from but my love of green, the accents or the movie Circle of Friends, were the… Read more

  • Just 50…no big deal

    August 21, 2019 by

    Be yourself; Everyone else is already taken. — Oscar Wilde. Did you know Theodor Suess Geisel was dared to write a children’s book with only 50 words! Well, instead of looking at this as an impossible challenge, a hurtle that could not be matched, or simply giving up; he created the masterpiece, Green Eggs and… Read more
