Staying In Idaho’s Most Famous Spud: The Big Potato Hotel thumbnail

Where we’re at: I’m jumping ahead to share my trip in late August 2020 with Visit Idaho. I’ll jump back into chronological time eventually! Honestly, can you you think of a more a-peel-ing accommodation than this? Groan. Sorry, but I can’t promise that’s the last potato-related pun in my coverage of my trip to Idaho. Punning…

The Great Escape: Months 101 + 102 + 103 thumbnail

Where we’re at: I’ve wrapped up blogging the fourth quarter of 2019, of which this is a huge roundup. What a weird time to look back on. These first three months after losing my mom were, largely, a fog. I guess much of the year was. As the world transitioned from fall into winter, I started…

Trading Pine Trees for Palm Trees: Christmas in Los Angeles thumbnail

Where we’re at: I’m recapping my travels in 2019, including this trip to California in December.

Taking my Little Bear to Big Bear: A Dog Friendly Trip to Big Bear Lake, California thumbnail

Howdy, Houston: Everything’s Bigger in the Biggest City in Texas thumbnail

Where we’re at: I’m recapping my travels in 2019, including this trip to Texas in December. Until recently, Texas was a big — huge, actually — untouched swath on my state scratch-off map. A quick weekend in Austin for a conference finally introduced me to the state in 2018, and a year later, I had an…

Getting Into the Swing of the Season in New York State thumbnail

Where we’re at: I’m recapping my travels in 2019, including this time in New York in November and December. After my journeys to Israel, Mexico, Florida and Illinois, I arrived back in New York State in mid-November — just in time for full holiday fervor to be setting in.  To be honest, I felt extremely ambivalent…

Florida, For A Few thumbnail

Where we’re at: I’m recapping my travels in 2019, including this trip to Florida in November. Sorry for my long absence, by the way! I guess I needed to take a true vacation while traveling in French Polynesia — looking back to blogging up a storm while stateside. With my mermaid-themed birthday extravaganza in Mexico wrapping…
