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…

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!

And while I struggle to go carry-on only even in the best of circumstances, nothing makes me tip…

We Solemnly Swear We Are Up To No Good: A Harry Potter Bachelorette Party at Universal Orlando thumbnail

If there is one wedding trend you will never hear me grumble about, it’s destination bachelorette parties. A chance to get away with a group of my best gal pals? Sign me up! Let’s face it — the opportunities for girlfriend getaways are fewer and far between as time goes on, families get started and responsibilities…

Hotel Crush: The Royal Pacific Resort in Orlando thumbnail

Aloha from Orlando! Wrong state, right? Maybe not, if you find yourself lucky enough to stay at Universal Orlando’s Loews Royal Pacific Resort. This Hawaiian-themed hotel is one of the five — soon to be six! — onsite accommodation options at Universal Orlando, and was my first stop after the wet and wild opening of Volcano Bay. (For the…
