Recently, my friend and I discovered a new travel accessories brand called Beis, owned by actress Shay Mitchell, best known for her roles as Emily in Pretty Little Liars and Peach in the Netflix thriller You. Shay took a little break from acting and started focusing on Beis.

Putting and Pool Time

Sometimes you want a vacation that is packed with lots of physical activity and challenges, and other times you're just looking for doing not much more than sitting on a beach or by a pool and watching the world go by. Our recent 10-day trip to Eagle Crest Resort in Central Oregon provided both. Last week I wrote about some hiking we did in the area, providing both lovely views    and a good workout.

Finding My Adventurous Side

I’ve always been more of a spectator than a participant. I’m not sporty or very coordinated, so I often bow out of activities that require any sort of athletic ability. I can’t swim, so that rules out a slew of fun things to do in tropical locales. I often find myself sitting on the sidelines, just observing my husband and daughter while they enjoy thrilling adventures. And I have never minded before. I loved watching them snorkel from my beach lounge chair in Riviera Maya, Mexico. I laughed from the safety of our boat as they did flips off a water trampoline in the Finger Lakes. Over the years, I became the designated photographer, trying to get a good shot of them on a roller coaster, while I held drinks and bags firmly on the ground at HersheyPark in Pennsylvania. I dutifully took photos of my husband as he hung awkwardly upside down to kiss the Blarney Stone in Ireland. I have taken LOTS of photos on many trips!

Anyone Can Whistle

When a Tony Award-nominated musical meets a historic local theater, the result is a great night of entertainment. Such was the case when I saw Anyone Can Whistle at Skokie Theatre.

Weekending in Jacksonville, Florida

As summer fades and the Jersey Shore traffic dies down on the East Coast, my family decided to close out the redemption summer of 2021 with a trip to Jacksonville, Florida. Certainty short and undeniably sweet, last weekend was filled with bike rides, quality family time and endless stories reflecting on a wonderful summer of travel and adventure.

Central Oregon Hiking

As I wrote a few weeks ago, my family enjoyed a stay at Eagle Crest Resort just outside of Redmond, Oregon, in August. It was a three-generation vacation, with the youngest less than 2 years old and the oldest just north of 70. As I indicated in my first blog, Central Oregon offers year-round outdoor recreation of many types, so we readily managed to find activities to appeal to everyone and each one's abilities.

Host a Fabled Business Event in Wonderful Copenhagen

I imagine that when writer Hans Christian Andersen mused, “Life itself is the most wonderful fairy tale,” he was standing at the edge of Copenhagen’s historic Tivoli Gardens, one of his favorite haunts, enlivened by the swirl of human happiness that surrounded him: children laughing; carousels spinning; games of chance played for prizes; lovers holding hands; hungry people whispering over sweets, hot drinks, beer and towering, open-faced smørrebrød, Denmark’s quintessential sandwich. That fairy tale lives on today at the second-oldest amusement park in the world, a spectacle of folly architecture, bakeries, gardens, rides, restaurants, puppet shows and joy ... and which also happens to be one of the city’s most storied places to convene for business.

I recently dined at Irwin’s in Philadelphia. The restaurant is located on the rooftop of the Bok Building, a former school turned collective of small businesses, non-profits, artist workshops, a bar and restaurant. I previously visited Bok for the bar and yoga classes, and I was excited to experience the restaurant.
