It’s been more than a year and I have a boatload of experiences still to share including a visit the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. The visit came about because I was in the nation’s capital attending the inauguration of President Trump then attended the Women’s March the following day.
Dear Fellow Citizens of the United States of America: Today is Independence Day. America’s birthday. And I challenge you…
The President of the United States represents ALL Americans, not only those who voted for him, which is why I’ll be attending Donald J. Trump’s presidential inauguration on Jan. 20, 2017.
Philadelphia is the perfect place to hold the DNC Convention because it is nicknamed the Cradle of Liberty. This is the location where the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution were signed, forming the modern United State. Following are 10 patriotic things to do in Philadelphia.

Eying the Big Dipper in the evening sky the other night, I held back tears. Don’t worry, it was all good, I’m just a sentimental baby sometimes. Earlier this month I followed the North Star to Chatham-Kent located in Southwestern Ontario, Canada, and learned it was more than just a terminus to the Underground Railroad during the mid-1800s.

I’m attending the Annual Travel Blog Exchange Conference (which means I’ve attended every North American #TBEX) in Toronto, June 1 and 2 and as a travel blogger, I’ll be joining my peers during a post-conference trip to learn...

It just had a viral impact, you might say,” Dr. Benjamin Carson, said during a Feb. 27, 2013, press conference in Sarasota, Fla.
