Creepy curiosities cabinet for Halloween

Jo and I were recently at a yard sale full of unusual cabinets. We spotted two that would be perfect for curiosity cabinets, and decided she would do one for Christmas (coming soon!) and I would do one for Halloween. My metal curio shelf was already perfectly aged and ready for a creepy curiosity cabinet — I didn’t even have to clean it or paint it! Filling the curiosity cabinet is the fun part, though it can seem like a daunting challenge. I’d like to share some tips for making your own DI...

The Aleph Rome Hotel – Boutique Luxury in the Heart of the City

Enjoying Rome is a new sensation for me. It started last fall when I returned after a very long absence and surprised myself by falling in love with the city. There’s something about it that resonated with me on my recent visits that hadn’t happened before so, when I learned that my Viking oceans cruise ended in Rome, I knew I wanted to extend my stay. I spent two days in Rome after the cruise, with the mission of enjoying the city’s holiday traditions as well as revisiting favorite spots aroun...

How to Enjoy Relaxed Luxury at The Diplomat Beach Resort in Florida

I’m a little embarrassed to say that until a few days ago, it’d been years – years – since I last hopped on a short flight down to Florida to enjoy some much needed rest and relaxation. I wish I had a good reason, but I don’t. Thankfully I corrected that oversight on a short but wonderfully restorative trip to South Florida over inauguration weekend. Every four years, no matter who wins, I use the opportunity to take a quick trip somewhere. In the past it’s been Ireland, Iceland and other more ...

My Experience With Curio Hotel Collection & Why You Should Know About Them

I struggled with this post. I didn’t have to write it, the fine folks over at Curio didn’t ask me to write it but I honestly wanted to write it. My problem though is how to write it without it seeming like an ad, which it’s not. I tend to get overly enthusiastic when it comes to the travel experience, and coming across as a little TOO excited is something I have to be careful about. But I think it’s ultimately a good quality. It shows that I love what I do, that I’m passionate about it unlike a...

Learning To Love Philadelphia Again With A Little Help

I had a slightly abnormal childhood in many ways, and one of those was just how many different places I lived. Some of my fondest memories though come from spending most of elementary school in Northeastern Pennsylvania in what I now call “The Office” Territory – Wilkes-Barre, Scranton and so on. Every few months, more during baseball season, as a family we would visit Philadelphia to do some shopping, or watch a Phillies game or just appreciate the history of the city. Those were good trips an...
