My Favorite Season – Fall

My Favorite Season – Fall

When the summer sun fades and crisp autumn temperatures creep up on us, I intentionally seek out activities where I can walk hand-in-hand with nature.  It’s the season where I seem to become more active.  Or maybe it’s just that I know my days are […]

Life on the Road

Life on the Road

I hear from my friends all the time, wow, you sure travel a lot.  Do you like that?  You go to some neat places, I see your photos on Facebook. As a matter of fact, I do enjoy traveling for my job and yes, it […]

A Notch in the Bucket List – North Carolina

A Notch in the Bucket List – North Carolina

There are so many travel destinations I want to explore while I’m able to.  I hear people comment that they want to travel once they retire.  I say, what’s the wait? Fortunately, I have many friends who share the same philosophy (birds of a feather) […]

Summer 2015 Bucket List

Summer 2015 Bucket List

Thanks to a little quiz on Facebook I have been diagnosed with “full-blown” OCD so it’s no wonder why I’m obsessed with making lists, because I suffer from an obsessive compulsive desire to accomplish things, among several other obsessive compulsive tendencies I might add. That […]

The Final Hours in Paris – 2014

Paris – Day 9 – One Year Ago

Paris – Day 9 – One Year Ago

Gosh, it’s hard to believe I’ve only been in Paris for 9 days, it seems like months. There’s not much about home I miss except my g-babies and son-in-law. Love my friends but I love Paris more….sorry!!! Kate and I enjoyed a leisurely morning at […]

Overnight Ghosts in Lyon

Overnight Ghosts in Lyon

When I talk about my trip to France in 2014, this is one of my favorite stories to tell…. We had uninvited guests in our hotel room last night! Insomnia hasn’t been a problem this week since we’ve been walking miles and miles each day […]

Paris – Day 7

Paris – Day 7

Day 7 in France proved to be quite the adventure as we navigated our way to Lyon, France.  Reposted from March 30th, 2014. Well, we started out the day with a bit of miscommunication.  I said I wanted to be at the Gare (train) station […]

Paris – Day 6 – Revisited

Paris – Day 6 – Revisited

Lacking energy is rarely a term someone would use when describing me, but on our 6th day in Paris we were worn out; jet lag had caught up with us.  Unfortunately at the time of the original post I was relying entirely on my iPhone […]
