It’s been awhile since I’ve updated my website! The spring and summer was a busy season of travel — a whirlwind couple of months with visits to Moab, Utah and Austin in April, Puerto Rico and Toronto in May, and Murphys, California; Oahu, Hawaii; and Bellingham, Washington in June! That was followed by a little sojourn in Istanbul, Turkey and an epic adventure on safari in Kenya and Tanzania. Deadlines and pitching have been insane and I’m just starting to come up for air. Stay tuned for the stories on all to be published soon…but click on the links below for a sneak preview:
Oahu was the next destination for two reasons: the most important of which was my Estonian cousin’s wedding to her long time love, and the second of which was to write about destination weddings in Hawaii. The wedding was of course the highlight – a gorgeous, intimate, memorable, and touching ceremony – and as I said while there, instead of getting the seven year itch, my cousin and her now-husband decided to get hitched!
Bellingham wrapped up the travels in June. More to come on that soon….
And July!!! One for the record books with an epic journey to Africa via 48 hours in Istanbul, Turkey. It had been a dream for as long as I can remember to visit Africa, particularly to go on safari in East Africa to Kenya and Tanzania. In July that dream became a reality… Leading up to the trip I was pinching myself every day that it was actually…finally… happening… Each day of the journey was better than the last. The people. The culture. The beauty. The fulfillment. Living in the moment.
So much to get caught up on, so little time… I have projects galore around the house that I’ve been putting off from rearranging my closet to getting my garden boxes filled and replanted, not to mention all the writing I have to do and events to cover. I have books staring at my from the shelves that want to be read and art and photos that need to be framed and hung! And videos that need to be made… One step at a time!
Hope everyone had an amazing summer, and cheers to a having a magical fall. Be sure to check out Voyage Vixens, the new venture Lanee and I founded this summer dedicated to having eat, PLAY, love experiences around the globe…. Wishing you safe travels and adventurous voyages.
