Eight friends, one fun weekend away

Life really can get the best of you sometimes and it can be so easy to let  months pass between visits with good friends. Back in February we decided  to stop procrastinating and plan something fun for a small group of us. We finally booked the weekend away that we seemed to talk about for years, but never made happen. So […]...continue reading →

Mykonos & Kusadasi

Do you want to know what #9 on my list of things that make me REALLY happy is? Finishing my European holiday blogs… which is exactly what I’m about to do. More than just the blog, it’s ticking something off a list. A list that has been hanging over my head since July. I am SO happy to finally be ticking […]...continue reading →

It was a breath of fresh […]...continue reading →

So what do I remember of Florence? First off, when people ask what the best part of our holiday was, we […]...continue reading →

Bologna

June 16, 2013 I just can’t look at the word Bologna without singing “Oscar Meyer has a way with B. O. L. O. G. N. A.”  I do think this Bologna is a little nicer than the pasty looking lunch meat though. I was so excited to come here knowing it was the foodie capital of Italy- but did it live […]...continue reading →
