Vegetable pizzette at The Brass Tag.
Admittedly, my favorite part of any ski day is lunch, and I am happy to report that Deer Valley dining is just as good in the summer as in the winter months. Although we had limited time and did not stop at every venue, we did hit up . . . → Read More: Park City, Utah: Eating Deer Valley
Deer Valley is stunning any time of year.
Park City is synonymous with winter sports: skiing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, ski jumping. Pretty much anything you can do on skis happens in Park City. Historically, FKGuy and I have visited our friends in Park City mainly in the winter. Although FKGuy has skied other mountains, . . . → Read More: Park City, Utah: Deer Valley Summer Fun
There is always room for dessert.
America’s national parks are wonderous to visit, but they are not known for being in areas of culinary greatness. Nonetheless, I chose which area to travel (Bryce vs. Arches/Canyonlands) based solely on where I thought we would have a better anniversary meal. No, I am not joking.

The vistas are never ending.
A long, hot day in Arches was immediately followed by a slightly-less-long and not-nearly-as-sweltering day in Canyonlands National Park.

Our route took us to Islands in the . . . → Read More: Moab, Utah: Canyonlands National Park
I will take any excuse to see my friends. I’ll also take any excuse to turn attending a wedding or bar mitzvah into a vacation. That is how we ended up in Moab, Utah, at Arches National Park (and Canyonlands, but that is another post.) Our usual Park City visits happen with several feet . . . → Read More: Moab, Utah: Arches National Park
I groaned audibly when I heard there was a new wine bar in town. Do we need another one? Then we stopped in for a glass of wine at the new Vivez Joyeux, and I could see why they decided to open. Vivez Joyeux means Live Joyfully in French, and . . . → Read More: Live Joyfully, Vivez Joyeux, A Key West Wine Bar
Chopping garlic requires concentration.
It is possible that I am the only one that remembers the days when FKGuy would cook. (I don’t recall him ever cooking for anyone else.) When he was in law school and had free time on his hands he did cook a bit. Now, not so much. Yesterday, my . . . → Read More: My Husband Started Cooking Again
That’s me in the lavender dress, at my friend’s bat mitzvah in 1986. Next weekend, I’ll be at her son’s bar mitzvah.
March 2004: FKGuy and I are budding wine geeks, and have joined the world of internet forums. Bulletin boards dedicated to people discussing (for the most part) one topic. In this case, . . . → Read More: New Friends Became Old Friends
OMG Chicken dumplings.
It is entirely possible to pass the tiny take-out window without a second glance. Kojin Noodle Bar, just off Duval Street in Key West, is easy to miss. This small eatery churns out fabulous Asian comfort food.

Yes, I ran a half-marathon. It was a while ago. I wore closed-toe shoes.
I hate to shop. There. I said it. I understand that there are these mythical creatures that actually enjoy it, but I can tell you one thing for sure: I am not one of them. There are so many reasons . . . → Read More: 7 Reasons Why I Hate To Shop
