Play Ball!

This spring, along with warmer weather and blooms and buds, has brought so many signs of hope and return to a life of greater physical connection with each other after a long year of isolation and separation. We are just a few days away from a time when anyone 16 or older is eligible to receive the COVID vaccine here in Oregon (and throughout most of the rest of the country, if not earlier). Here, too, schools are open to at least part-time in-person instruction, and capacities at restaurants, bars and gyms have expanded. While we've been warned of a gradual increase in case numbers and hospitalizations and the spread of variants, there is nevertheless much to cheer.

Wedding Bells

Amid all of the changes and rescheduling a lot of bride and grooms had to deal with over the last 14 months, I am happy to have finally attended a wedding ... as scheduled! This past weekend, a great friend of mine said “I do” to her groom at sunset in Spring Lake, New Jersey.

Scootin’ Around Town

The Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, D.C., is supposed to be one of the coolest sights on the East Coast during the months of March and April, depending on when peak bloom arrives. I had always wanted to visit the area during this time and decided this was the year to go — even if the parade and other festival activities were canceled this year. I packed my bags full of new, pastel, pink-and-blue outfits and went on a little road trip down to D.C. to catch a glimpse of some stunning cherry blossoms. The weather was a bit chilly when I arrived, and as a result, the cherry blossoms were not fully bloomed. Some trees scattered around the city were brightly painted pink and white, but for the most part, the majority were closed with green buds.

Fun at Northwestern, Food at El Nuevo Tipico

Over the weekend I thought I would finally be back watching a softball game at Northwestern. Due to a paperwork snafu, I could not get my ticket. Not to be denied, I watched the game from a bit of a distance without breaking any rules. Unfortunately, the Wildcats lost a double header to the University of Minnesota.

Easter Fun

When I was younger, every year my cousins, brothers and I would do an Easter egg hunt, whether in the house or around the yard. Normally, we would look for eggs filled with candy, change, dollars and sometimes lottery tickets. Now that we are grown up, we started looking for other ideas to switch it up.

The Hamilton Hotel Review

The Hamilton Hotel, located steps from the White House, was the perfect place for a relaxing weekend getaway. Upon arrival, the staff was extremely friendly and helpful with a quick check-in process. The lobby was immaculate with shining marble flooring, velvet couches and an arched ceiling design that brought a sense of sophistication. For added security, the elevators are only accessible to those who have a key card to a guestroom.

Luxury Hotels Add Bryte Restorative Bed to Guestrooms

Luxury destinations around the country partnered with Bryte to introduce The Restorative Bed and enhanced sleep programming at their hotels.
