My husband and I just took a much needed break from the 24/7 world of life with kids. We love them dearly, but a weekend getaway for couples is good every now and then. So, when the Fayetteville Area Convention and Visitors Bureau (“Fayetteville CVB”) invited us for a getaway, we said yes! I worked […]
Hilton Richmond Hotel & Spa in Short Pump: A review
I don’t often post hotel reviews on my site. To be honest, if you want to know hotel amenities, there are lots of sites out there that have all that information, so why clutter the internet by repeating the same old thing? But, sometimes, a hotel is more than the sum of its parts. And […]

The King and Prince Resort on the beach at St. Simon’s Island, Georgia. Sounds swanky, doesn’t it? I sure thought so! I first heard of The King and Prince Resort about five years ago and knew I needed to visit someday. I thought it might be good for a romantic getaway with my husband, where […]

2017 Mazda 6 review: Fun times in a mid size sedan!
Taking the 2017 Mazda 6 Grand Touring on a trip to Pennsylvania, I knew I faced 400 miles of driving and nine long hours behind the wheel. The car attached to that wheel, in this case Mazda’s mid size sedan, decides whether that road trip is good, bad or somewhere in between. With the Mazda […]
