I love to travel. I love talking to people about travel. I love daydreaming about travel. I love reading books about travel, watching travel shows, and hearing about other people’s travel. I love meeting new people when I travel, exploring new places, and soaking in the culture of a new city. Travel really is aContinue reading “Bonjour Madame”

It’s time to dream again. Imagine yourself traveling by boat to your own private island. The turquoise waters are calm, the 2 dolphins on the port side of The Truman, playfully zig zag around the wake . The sun has warmed your skin and is so bright you have to squint to see the approachingContinue reading “Sweet Escape”
What’s in a name?
In 1919 on 12 rue de l’Odéon, an American in Paris, named Sylvia Beach decided to open a bookstore. I can’t imagine that she knew at the time, the lasting impact she would have on thousands of writers for more than a century later. Le Mistral became a home away from home for struggling writersContinue reading “What’s in a name?”

My Secret Love Affair
I dream. I long. I count the days until we are together again. The attention, the gifts, the catering to my every need. The romantic dinners with exquisite wines and desserts.

Peace be with you
I have everything I need-sunblock, sunglasses, and a cute hat. It’s is just a little after 7am on the gulf coast of Florida and it is already 75 degrees. I have the top down on my little white convertible and I am heading to my favorite spot, the beach. I can’t think of a betterContinue reading “Peace be with you”
Under the Tuscan Sky
There is a villa, about 1 hour south of Florence, Italy that sits a top a hill overlooking the Tuscan countryside with spectacular views of vineyards and olive groves. The Apennines mountains are off in the distance and the town of Figline Valdarno is just down the road. For years it sat in ruins untilContinue reading “Under the Tuscan Sky”
It’s 1970 and you find yourself in the South of France, gathering around a table for dinner with James Beard, M.F.K. Fisher, Richard Olney, Simone Beck, Judith Jones, and Julia Child. Perhaps you are feeling intimidated? A bit out of place? Yet extremely lucky to be part of a moment that will forever be knownContinue reading “Provence 2022”
Where in the World am I?
It’s Christmas time but the snow has been replaced by sand, the evergreens by palm trees, and the warm air reminds you that you are far from home. A weekend in the sun is just what you need to wrap up another busy year. A glass of champagne is placed in your hand as youContinue reading “Where in the World am I?”
