Global Go-To Girl 2020

Anyone else start 2020 feelin’ like a million bucks?  Actually, that is a lie… I started feeling really good around my 40th birthday, in September of 2019.  I was so nervous about turning 40… like midlife crisis style. I felt like I officially was going to be old.  I had no idea that I would […]

I Love Skiing

Ya gerl has decided that she loves skiing.  It’s only taken me about 30 years to get to that point, but I am fully in now. I will say that taking the kids was slightly painful only because of all of the “stuff” you need that basically becomes the parents job to carry around.  That […]

Spotlight on: Italy

After many extended conversations, my husband finally decided that he would like to spend his 40th birthday on an eight day trip to Italy.  With our kids, and our parents.  As fun as that sounds, please note, that for my 40th birthday, I will be doing nothing of the sort.  No kids, no family, and […]

Spotlight on: Fethiye

Why I picked it:  On the southwestern coast of Turkey, is only about an hour flight from Istanbul, and it’s like the Turkish Amalfi coast.  Beautiful vistas and amazing blue water is just the beginning.  Though we typically aren’t resort goers, I was starting this trip solo with the kids so I figured I wanted […]

Spotlight on: Bavarian Alps

Why I chose it:  We love the mountains and decided to explore the Bavarian Alps (Lake Tegernsee) in October, which ended up being a great idea.  This is technically off-season (summer for the lake and winter for the skiing), which allowed us a lot of freedom to enjoy the local culture and soak in the […]
