Can’t sleep.

Missing the sunrise and peeking over the balcony as early workers stroll by, conversing in native tongues over the rooster’s crow. Stretching out my legs and feeling the heat on my skin before daylight has fully broken. Stirring the perfect cappuccino — — under the latticed patio roof, flanked by lush vegetation and pretty florals. […]

an ode to hotels

We love hotels!  It’s hard to imagine who doesn’t, really.  You arrive to a freshly made bed and (assumed) spotless tub. When you leave for the day and come back, everything’s cleaned up for you.  The pillows and covers are like heavenly soft marshmallows, and when you hang a sign on the door, no one bothers […]

On Love and the Islands

I sat there contentedly, stirring my cappuccino, and waiting patiently for Hubby and Big Girl to return.  It was his turn to get the crepes.  I had overeaten yet again, and this time Little Baby decided to stay in her stroller and sleep so I could sit back and enjoy dessert. I sipped and smiled […]

DisneyWORLD

And now down to the nitty gritty, the meat, the FUN stuff – the Disney Parks review! Our trip was planned in late September, so after googling Disney information, I came across an interesting alternative to the usual Magic Kingdom visit: Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party!  As a family, we had been to the […]

Boston-a-thon… Bidding adieu.

Time that drags is ample time to commit to El Bloggo! And here we are, with the 3rd and final installment of the Boston Road Trip Extraordinaire.  That Saturday was supposed to be spent waking up leisurely, having breakfast, and heading to the nearby Mashpee Commons Mall to visit Cupcake Charlies and grab a dozen […]

Concrete Junglists

With cheesy pasta up to her elbows, eyes fixated on the Robots Blu-Ray playing in front of her, I steal another moment for part two of our Boston Road Extravaganza: NYC! This was my 3rd time in the Big Apple, and I can say I’ve experienced the city in 3 of 4 seasons, fall being […]

Hot Chocolate and CHOWDA

As I sit on my cold, hard floor at the insistence of, and beside, my new potty-training-in-training toddler, I seize the opportunity to write of a recent trip I took to Boston and New York with a great group of friends (and family). It all began with softball (and what doesn’t nowadays, apparently) and the […]

Marbell-ous

Monday It is nearing the end of day two here at the Club Marbella Crown Resorts here in this small town (of the same name) near Malaga, Spain. What an excellent decision to leave this leg of the trip for last, since for the past week we’ve been commuting, sightseeing, and sleeping very little. These past […]
