A Tourist in Seattle

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...

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...

Wine Tasting at Nantucket Vineyard – Cisco Brewers, Nantucket

So, to Cisco Brewers.  Before heading to Nantucket, a place I had not been to in about 10 years...

A Summer Dinner Party paired with MBTI

This past weekend I hosted a summer dinner party for a group of close friends.  As with all of my dinner parties, I do like to fully plan them out and usually do a food theme such Italian , French, Greek, Mexican and British but this time I thought I would do something a little different.  By day I work for a consulting firm where I lead a number learning programs.  One of my favorites is doing a program using the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) of which I am a qualified practitioner.  The MBTI is the most widely used personality assessment in the world, which offers...

Dining and Wining on Nantucket

There are some that say Nantucket has lost its charm and it is nothing but a label to wear by the nouveau riche.  Well, while I do think it can increase in numbers to a crazy amount in the summer months, I still think it has kept its beauty and charm with its grey wooden houses, beautiful sandy beaches, bike trails and lighthouses.  Now a designated National Historic District, Nantucket offers those of us desperate for a break a sublime retreat that makes you feel like you are miles away from any city center. Last weekend I joined some...
