What I Read on Vacation

As much as I love reading, it can be difficult to do all that much of it very often.  Generally, vacation is prime time for me to check off a few of the books on my list, and this year was no exception....more

How to Take Your Blog with You on Vacation

We hear all the time how important it is to keep your blog on a schedule, whether that means posting at 7am every Monday through Friday, or posting once a week at 5pm.  Whatever it is, regularity is key to let your readers know when to expect new content from you. On vacation though, that can be difficult.  It goes way beyond simply scheduling a post to go live each day, especially if you usually share your posts on social media, post photos, and interact on sites like Twitter and Facebook. ...more

Vacation Time!

Quintessential Andalucia - Vejer de la Frontera

Our final day in Spain was spent in (on?) a hillside village known as Vejer de la Frontera, just one of the many white-washed towns spread across southern Spain. The village was just over 30 minutes from Rota, making for a perfect afternoon. We arrived and proceeded to climb to the to the top, where we would then find ourselves in one of the prettiest areas of our trip....more

When the Cat's Away

Our instructor for our Flip Fitness class is on vacation for two weeks.Whoo-hoo…well, because she gets to have vacation, naturally.We had Jessica as our instructor tonight and it really was funny. Our instructor Jackie is infamous for not liking odd numbers of repetition for exercises. She tens to make us do ten and then tries to slip more in, We imagined her at her shore hang out, and we joked that we were sending vibes down to her every time we changed the count amount.**Don’t tell her, but we did actually do ten most of the time, but she doesn’t have to know that**....more

Staycation Ideas - how to make a great one!

Hubby and I recently took a "staycation!" For the 4th of July holiday weekend, Hubby got off a couple days of work and we decided to spend some quality time together. Baby will be here in about a month so we wanted to have one "last hurrah" and some alone time before that big baby day came. Instead of spending lots of money to get a hotel and all that goes with going away for a few days, we decided to have a staycation. This staycation was much less stressful for us and a money saver! But staycations do require a few things!...more

When Your Summer Doesn't Work Out the Way You Plan and It's Okay

Those moments where things do not go as planned while on vacation. Yes, those. Yet, they turn out to be ahhh-mazing and the most memorable of the trip.This happened for me at Yosemite National Park years back. Some call those a happy accident. Sometimes you just cannot plan these things. And that is what makes them so special.We were coming back from a star gazing event on the Valley Floor that we seemed to miss or could not find. We were bummed and everyone was feeling hungry and grumpy. No campfire smores or shooting stars. Sad face....more
