Disconnect and reconnect


I recently shared how I do my best to live a simple life even when life is busy.  One thing I do regularly is disconnect and reconnect.  Sounds contradictory, right?  Let me explain.

I disconnect from the noise, the demands, and the minutiae so that I can reconnect with nature, beauty, and More >

Life, actually


I have been living in one place and working as a full-time consultant in Corporate America for three years now.  That means my routine, my needs, my perspective, my relationships, basically everything, is very different from the nearly two years I spent traveling in Latin America focusing on More >

Part two of my photography series from Viejo San Juan focused on El Morro, the historical fort and World Heritage Site in Puerto Rico.  I loved the grounds of El Morro so much and took so many photos that it deserves another post.

PHOTOGRAPHY: Viejo San Juan (Part 1)

I almost didn’t go to Viejo San Juan.

I heard it is very touristy.  And my Puerto Rico trip was about visiting Rease for a couple of days and then spending time alone (well, with a furry companion) to focus on a work project and experience a new environment.

I am so happy I listened to friends and More >

My Top 7 Boston

Boston is beautiful.

Pants! #7DayStretch


Yep, this post is all about pants.  Specifically, one pair of amazing pants.

I was excited when prAna asked me to participate in their #7DayStretch challenge because I tried out their clothes for travel and loved them.

PrAna’s clothes are comfortable, practical, and fashionable, especially for More >

PHOTOS: Beautiful Boston

Boston has just made the very small list of places I plan to keep visiting.

There are so many cities I want to explore that I usually do not return to a place even if I enjoy it.

I take it all in.  And then I move on, travel stories and photos as my souvenirs.

A long weekend was just an More >
