Travel Specialist aka “Information Concierge”

Sometimes, I get out of my own head and just spit words out as they’re thought.  This was one of those times:

The average traveler visits 38 websites. That’s a lot of time, energy, and frustration, especially if you’re only using that information for one trip! I’m happy to sleuth for you. Two reasons: I actually really enjoy the research and I can (and do) reuse it.

So, if weeding through and trying to vet different websites and information sounds like something that you’d prefer someone else do for you, then please feel free to reach out to me. I’ll act as an information concierge for you.

Then, I go back into my head and revisit my “babies laughing” videos and “food & travel” porn.

The more I do this, the more efficient I become.  The more efficient I become, the more excited I am to do this.  It’s a beautiful, vicious circle!  So, open invitation (see the quoted text up yonder ☝︎).

Happy Thursday!





More Gratitude


Kiara, Aliyah, and Natalie working kitchen magic!
The little ones got the batter, the big one got the crumbs.

The kids are showing gratitude for the birth of their father by baking him a cake.  I’m so thankful for my happy kids in my chaotic kitchen.

Everything else is…

Wait for it…

“Icing on the cake!” 😆

(See what I did there?)

Please pardon the tiny half-naked chef.

How do you show gratitude?



PS: Can you guess why Kiara is making that face, in the first picture?
