My 48-Hour Love Affair With Pittsburgh During a Winter Freeze

It just took 48 hours to fall in love with Pittsburgh. Sure, one of those mornings it was 3 degrees, but during my quick visit I found so many things to love about the Steel City.

Ramp Picking Weekend at The Arnold House in the Catskills, April 18 – 20, 2015

Oh, boy. Sure wish I could participate in the Inaugural Ramp Picking Weekend at The Arnold House in the Catskills, April 18 – 20, 2015. Ramps are new in my culinary world and I consider them one of those trendy veggies for the hipster crowd. Have you tasted ramps?

Sunsets Recharge My Batteries in Charlotte County, Florida

I ain’t gonna lie. The last four weeks have been a big, burly bear I feel as though I’ve been fighting alone. Being the eternal optimist, I’ve been finding time to let the sunsets recharge my soul in my backyard of Charlotte County, Fla.

Laughing and Paddling at Manatee Park in Fort Myers, Fla.

My red kayak lazily floated down the Orange River and the only sound I noticed reminded me of snorkelers and SCUBA divers exhaling air. You know, that “pfffft” sound. One after another, about a dozen manatees took turns surfacing near my kayak, exhaling, inhaling then slipping back into the river.

That Time Former President Jimmy Carter Set Me Straight About Noah

Anxious for the Bible study lesson to begin, I sat in a pew fidgeting at Maranatha Baptist Church in Plains, Ga., sitting between a friend and a stranger. “Please remember, we’re here to worship God and not Jimmy Carter,” the pastor said.

Travel to the Dominican Republic: Whale Watching in Samaná Bay

There were about a dozen of us in an open-air boat, sitting in pairs, bobbing in silence on Samaná Bay with our eyes fixated on the horizon. I was craning my neck and holding my breath in anticipation to check off another experience from my bucket list, whale watching.

Travel to Virginia: Southern Charm and Hipster Vibe in Roanoke

Oh, Roanoke. What have you done to me? Months after my spring visit, your traditional Southern charm and hipster vibe are still in my heart.

Travel to New York City: Taking a Juicy Bite of the Star-Studded Big Apple with the TMZ Tour NYC

Traveling to New York? Hop aboard the red TMZ Tour NYC bus to take a juicy bite of the star-studded Big Apple.

Soaking up the glitz of pop-culture is one of my guilty vices and TMZ is my go-to source for a juicy fix. Watching the show, I often thought it would be fun to follow a TMZ crew as they scoped out Hollywood’s streets in search of today’s relevant celebrities.

New York City Hotel: Sleeping Paradise Found at the NYLO

leeping paradise found at the NYLO Hotel in New York City. As hard as I fought, my internal alarm clock woke me at 5:30 a.m. Peering through the slivers of my weary eyelids, I could tell it was still dark and definitely not time to begin my day. I didn’t need to be anywhere until 11 a.m. which meant hopping in a cab around 9:30 a.m.

Seeing the Northern Lights is On My Bucket List. Is it on Yours?

Seeing the Northern Lights is on my bucket list, is it on yours? This year should be a dazzling display of the Aurora Borealis because NASA is predicting it to be on the peak of an 11-year cycle.
