A Weekend in San Diego, CA

This past Labor Day weekend, I took a very short but super fun trip to San Diego.  This gorgeous temperate part of California relaxed my soul and fueled my heart that the world still has polite and kind people and apparently they all live in San Diego.  There is just such a laid back, warm way about San Diego folks.  The weather itself was an absolutely perfect walking around 72-75 degrees of warm weather with a light breeze.  Accommodation We stayed at The US Grant Hotel close to the Gaslamp Quarter.  This old and beautiful hotel looked after us...

Being the self-named “Queen of the Long Weekend” I continued my exploration of US cities I have not yet traveled to with a trip to Seattle.  Each year my friend, Stacey and I think of a place to go in the US and plan a tourist and usually food filled, wine soaked weekend of fun.  Just a few of the cities we have traveled to together are Los Angeles, Toronto and Savannah.  Next year we are thinking Nashville.  Seattle completely lived up to everything I have seen or read about it with raining every single day and being on...

The Perfect Getaway in the Little Town of Yountville, CA

It will come as no surprise to anyone that I am a huge fan of wine country.  When I was there a few years ago I stayed in the little town of Yountville and loved it so much, I recommended we stay there again on my recent girls weekend with Lauren and Marcella. I will have lots to share with you in the coming weeks on wineries I loved and restaurants I highly recommend.  However, for now l would like to share a one night packed stay in Yountville.
