blog world tour

I’m always astounded that my little blog reaches to the far ends of the world.  Seeing all of these amazing countries pop up in my stats is humbling.  I’m a (relatively) simple girl who loves to travel, but I don’t get to do it enough (I’ve been to only 9 of the countries listed below).  …

when’s my next vacation?

One full week back to the old grind and I am so over it!  It had been an easy week to ease back in, but email issues were driving me batty! Vacation…it was so nice.  The resort wasn’t great, but it served its purpose.  It provided a clean room, clean pool, lots of lounge chairs …
