    A few weeks ago, we returned from London, one of our favorite places on earth.  London feels both exciting and comforting -- we love making discoveries and also visiting with old friends, going to cozy pubs and glamming it up with nights on the town. Some highlights from this visit with our Dad: ...

Nothing like stealing away to Nantucket for a couple of days with one of my best friends.  What made it even better is that we were there for 4 nights before the island was completely overwhelmed with 4th of July madness. It was perfect. We loved our adorable little Airbnb on Union Street -  just ...


Hotel Spotlight: The Wickaninnish Inn in Tofino, Canada!

The Wickaninnish Inn is a magical and historical spot on the tip of Vancouver Island in Tofino, BC, Canada.  It is one of those rare properties that offers luxury while truly embracing and celebrating the local (and magnificent!) environment.  I know, it sounds cheesy, but it's true!  After three nights in a delightful rental house ...

Every year Napper and I go on an anniversary trip just the two of us (except for last year when the little man accompanied us to France!).  We always go somewhere we've never been together and we try to go for at least a week, although with a child at home with his grandmother and ...


New England Summer! Chebeague Island, Maine.

By |June 23rd, 2015|TRAVEL|

I can't think of a better way to kick off the official start of Summer than a solstice wedding on a tiny island in Maine.  Chebeague Island is beautiful, sparsely inhabited (300 people year round), and perfectly serene.  The Chebeague Island Inn is the attraction on the Island. Originally built in the 1880s, it has ...


The Best of Banff!!!

Since seeing pictures of the Faimont Banff Springs perched regally in the heart of the majestic Canadian Rockies, it has been at the top of my travel list.  The stars aligned in March, when an opportunity to escape for a couple of days to ski emerged and the Banff/Lake Louise area was the only place ...


On my own in NYC for a whole day (and a half)!

By |June 1st, 2015|TRAVEL|

I was just back for a blissful two-ish days on my own in NYC on my way to and from my high school reunion.  Luckily, I have my mother's apartment in Soho as a home base- if I didn't, I would have loved to have checked out the Ludlow or maybe found a cute place ...

    We're just back from a few days at the barefoot chic Ocean View Club on beloved Harbour Island in the Bahamas.  Harbour Island is one of our "soul sister spots," a place where we feel inspired and relaxed all at once.  Ocean View has been cool for decades and is special to us as ...

Move over cheesy massive hotels with no style!  And put that other idea of not traveling with the kids aside.  Travel planning can be daunting, yes, even without little ones to consider, yet the newly launched Feather + Flip has made it very easy for us!  CEO and Co-Founder Henely Vazquez, has an extensive background ...

After a delightful night at the Fairmont San Francisco, we met up with our Dad and hit the road for a father daughter excursion in Napa!  All of our cool SF friends have raved about Scribe Winery which is in Sonoma on the way to Napa, so it seemed like the perfect first stop.  It ...
