The Big Apple shines brightest during the holidays – & the accompanying crowds will certainly let you know that you’re not the only one who feels that way.

When the nice folks at Gaylord National Harbor invited B & I to come check out the property & all their holiday merriment & joy, I was a little hesitant. The National Harbor complex is less than six miles from where we live & we’ve watched the area grow from a patch of dirt to a […]

I'm a D.I.N.K. (Double Income, No Kids). Follow along as B (that would be my husband) & I travel the world, blissfully unburdened by strollers, diaper bags & Elmo-related meltdowns.

I usually pay my own way for the experiences shared here. Sometimes I don't. If something is comp'd, you'll always know. Regardless, you'll always get my honest experiences & honest opinions - the good, the bad, the ugly & the fabulous.
