Florida – You’ll Wish You Were Here!

As I posted a few weeks ago, I was selected to be a part of a blogger group to write about Marriott properties throughout Florida as part of the “Wish You Were Here – Florida” campaign. Just last week, I stayed a few nights at the Courtyard Tampa Westshore/Airport, just a few miles from my home, and had a nice little working staycation.

Celebrate National Dog Day!

Today is National Dog Day, and it’s time to celebrate our beloved four-legged friends. Of course, in our house, every day is a day to celebrate our pup, Lucy!

Peeking Into the Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley

Harry Potter fans, rejoice – tomorrow a whole new world opens at Universal Orlando Resort! Let’s take a peek inside, shall we?

First, let me make a confession: I’m a Harry Potter neophyte. Sure, I have a general idea of the storyline and the main characters, but beyond that, nothing. When I had the chance to go behind the scenes and help out at the media preview a few weeks ago, I was thrown into a world I knew little about, and left wanting to know more.

Go Baby, GO!

The miracle of sea turtle nesting and hatching has begun, and I have first-hand experience. Years ago, I was part of the volunteer turtle team at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. Starting about now, staff and volunteers patrol the beaches in the early-morning, looking for tracks of females who had made their way to shore to lay hundreds of eggs at a time.

Celebrate Earth Day at U.S. National Parks!

Tomorrow’s Earth Day, and there are plenty of ways – and places – to celebrate. In the U.S., we’re fortunate to have some incredible national treasures, our national parks. Coincidentally – maybe not? – this is National Park Week. Well, now through April 27, so it’s a bit longer than a week. Plenty of reason to celebrate! National Park Week is a presidentially-proclaimed celebration of our national heritage.

Augusta – A Masters-ful Getaway

There’s more than golf in Augusta, Georgia. This piece I wrote for GirlsGetaway.com still rings true!

Benefits of Being a Travel Writer – More Than You May Think!

There are many benefits of being a travel writer, that’s for certain. Traveling to destinations near and far, exotic and urban, warm and cold. Trying new, crazy things, like bobsledding on an Olympic course, zip lining high above the ground below, flying along the Road to Hana, or swimming with whale sharks. Traveling is an adventure, and I’m thrilled that I’ve followed my dream to be a travel writer – to experience just these types of things, and to share with you.

Go Ahead – Let It Snow!

At this point, how many versions of the Polar Vortex have swept across the U.S. this year? And on top of Snowmageddon? Enough’s enough, right?
