Summer is a time to take in the fresh air. Play together as a family. Have an excuse to get ice cream. Run around in sprinklers. Wear flip flops. Roll the windows down. Blast loud music. Pick seashells. See hot summer flicks. Read a good book. And the list just goes on and on. I […]

So, you’re wondering where I went last week where I had to be unplugged? Check it out: I traveled to the most beautiful chateau where I was able to visit the spa, enjoy wine straight from the vineyards, partake in delicious meals, sink into a luxurious bed at night, and learn from the most amazing […]
