Lancaster County Trip Review


Upon our return from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania the words that keep floating through my mind are peaceful and calming. From the winding roads, the covered bridges, the huge farms and the serene parks it was the most relaxing, unstressful vacation we have taken. As we crossed the tracks at the Strasburg Rail Road to purchase […]

Grand Rapids ArtPrize Review

Grand Rapids ArtPrize Featured

I’ve thought and thought on how to describe ArtPrize in Grand Rapids to the unfamiliar. The best description I can come up with is that for art and craft lovers it is the equivalent of Disney World. The anticipation of what is awaiting you visually around the next corner only compares to standing in line […]

Traverse City Is Pure Michigan


Do you hear that noise? It’s the sound of the warm summer sun breaking over the horizon. The summer flowers swaying in the gentle breeze. The summer birds chirping their happiness.  It can only mean one thing…it’s summer vacation time. Time to unwrap yourself from a cocoon of clothes you wore all winter.  To change your hot chocolate […]

Road Trip USA Book Review

Road Trip USA

If I had my way when we are traveling we would avoid freeways at all cost. Not because of the traffic and the speed, but because of the little of the country you actually see from them. We are fortunate enough to be retired, so that a 24 hour road trip to Florida can take […]

Flight 93 Memorial

Flight 93 9-11 Memorial

When you hear the words 9/11 what flashes in your mind? Is it the picture of the plane hitting the second tower, the towers crashing down, the Pentagon on fire, or the smoldering remnants of Flight 93? On a recent trip to Pennsylvania, Randy requested that we stop by the Flight 93 Memorial. As you […]
