Santa Fe, New Mexico

Have you ever loved a place before you’ve ever even been there?Read about it and just knew that this would be your place?  This was me with Santa Fe, New Mexico for years before going there. From the art to the colors, the shopping to the history, Santa Fe truly is a majestic city.

One of my favorite artists is Georgia O’ Keefe. From her flower paintings to her desert landscapes and especially her cityscapes I have always been so fascinated by her work. When planning a trip to Santa Fe the number one thing on my list was to visit the Georgia O’Keefe Museum.  Continue reading Santa Fe, New Mexico

It's Fall Y'a;

On Labor Day I noticed posts all over social media mourning the end of summer. At the time I thought that those sillies didn’t realize they had more sunny days ahead. Well, today it really IS official. Summer 2016 has gone and fall has arrived.

Top Ten Hotels for My Home Away from Home

When spending time away from the comforts of home there are certain things that I appreciate in a hotel. Proximity to places I wish to visit, friendly staff, a comfortable bed and stylish surroundings are all things that make my stay memorable. Take a look at the properties that made my top ten:

Hyatt Palm Springs 

Hyatt Palm Springs

While earning a degree in Interior Design I always was drawn to the mid-century modern style that Palm Springs is known for. When I finally had the chance to visit this beautiful town I stayed at the Hyatt Palm Springs. The style of the hotel had mid-century modern influences, while still feeling very current. The view from our balcony was so beautiful as was the room.  Being within walking distance of many restaurants and art galleries made for a perfect night of wandering the town. Not to be left out were the staff. From the front desk to the valet everyone was so pleasant.  Continue reading Top Ten Hotels for My Home Away from Home
