    2022-02-11 SMA Road Trip Day 5: A Mammoth Day 🦣🦣🦣

    We left our Airbnb before the sun was up. Unfortunately, we’d set ourselves up with tickets for a tour at Mammoth Cave in Kentucky at 1PM making our timeline extremely tight.  Yup. Another, no coffee, no bathroom morning. Another 4 hours full of anxiety over having four minutes to spare. Or so We thought.  About […]

    2022-02-10 SMA Road Trip Day 4: More Exploring

    We were up again with the sun yesterday. There were quite a few Smokey Mountain stops on our list that we either didn’t see signs for or that were on a different road through the park altogether so the goal was just to see more. Truthfully, we were kind of feeling hiked-out from the previous […]

    2022-02-09 SMA Road Trip Day 3: Smoky Mountain Exploration

    We woke up on day three to the sunrise which was in full view from the giant window in the master bedroom. And once that sun is up, it is up. No sleeping in is allowed. This was OK by us as we had a full day of exploring the Smoky Mountains ahead. I made […]

    2022-02-08 SMA Road Trip Day 2: Making it (almost) to the Mountains ⛰

    We’ve spent a lot of time in the car at this point. On Monday morning I woke with a serious hangover but time waits for no SugarCookie so we had to scoot out of Nashville and on down the road to the mountains. The Smokey Mountains to be exact.  Before we left town we drove […]

    2022-02-07 SMA Road Trip Day 1: Sometimes Life is About the Destination

    Yesterday was the first full day traveling. We woke up in O’Fallon Illinois and headed east and south through Kentucky and into Tennessee.  Yes… we did stop at Starbucks for a coffee before skipping out of O’Fallon. Thankfully we did not have as tight of a timeline to reach our destination as the day before. […]

    2022-02-06 SMA Road Trip Day 0 Continued: The St. Louis Arch

    Yesterday we had to push real hard to make our 4:30 ticket time at the Saint Louis arch. We planned to leave home around 9 but became delayed, as is often the case, with all the last minute stuff at the house.  I was supremely disappointed as we got on the road and was told […]

    2022-02-05 SMA Road Trip Day 0: Ready, Set, Go!… 💃

    Today my love and I are skipping out of this popsicle town. Our bags are packed. Our minds are right (mostly) and we have 7 hours to make it to our first stop, Saint Louis, for our 4:30 Arch tour.  I had a shit night sleep mostly because I was up late with said packing […]

    2021-07-25 California Adventure Day 3:  Escape from San Francisco

    Yesterday we lingered a little too long for my taste in the Bay Area. Everything about the city is painful.. the traffic, parking, long lines, crowds. Ugh! We literally went to three brunch places before we found one that had less than an hour wait. AND spent about 30 bucks on parking and a half […]

    2021-05-29 KC Road Trip Part 1: It’s All Going to Be OK

    This is new. My daughter is having her first “friend” road trip/weekend and I’m backseat chaperoning and trying not to backseat drive. She drives like a teenager—too fast, following too close, and extremely irritated when I offer pointers. I’ve seen what she calls her most social finger waving to me from the driver’s seat at […]

    2021-02-27 Three Days Rolled into One

    Yesterday felt like two or three days long. Waking up just past two and milling about in the middle of the night and eventually meeting with the normal morning routine felt like day 1. Day 2 was going to a yoga class and returning home to house chores and a bunch of stuff for the […]
