Our latest girls' trip is in the books! It was five glorious days in the mountains of Colorado, sans family. None of us feel bad about our time away from our kids each year, and you shouldn’t either. We...
We picked a fine time to go out of town. I say that seriously and sarcastically because a major hurricane is about to wreak havoc on our beloved Sunshine State, and we are 2,000 miles away on vacation. It’s...
Nestled deep into the High Country of North Carolina, at an elevation of 3,333 feet, is our favorite family destination: Boone, North Carolina. We love them so much, we like to call them our mountains, but I'd love to...
