Morocco Days 10 & 11: Final Days

I am grateful for that flutter of a butterfly’s wing that set off the random chain of events that brought me here. It started with seeing a repost of Jo’s bohemian interior decor on someone else’s Instagram feed feed, following her for a year on social media, then deciding to take a leap of faith to go to Morocco with her.

Day 5 & 6: Essaouira and Salut Maroc!

Every single room in Salut Maroc was unique, decorated with antiques and tiled in the the most vibrant colors. Not a single corner was neglected, each room a piece of art. We spent the first hour touring each other’s rooms and taking pictures. It was an absolute feast for the eyes.

Day 4: YSL, Majorelle Gardens, Rugs Galore

Once again I woke up to the call to prayers, but at least I slept soundly most of the night. As I get older, I have come to realize that a good night’s sleep isn’t something I can take for granted. I was the first person to come downstairs as the sky slowly lightened, my […]

Day 3: Souks, Hammam and Henna

Birthday in Mexico

I’m on the flight home from a birthday getaway to see Steven Retchless in Puerto Vallarta. I had no way of predicting 4-5 years ago when we met at a pole convention in Las Vegas that he would become a regular in my home and that I would fly off to see him in Mexico. […]

Miami :: Cuba :: Cushies

We got back from our cruise to Cuba the other day and I’m emotionally prepared to blog about it. Travel blogs are time consuming beasts but I can’t neglect them because there are always so many great memories to preserve. This year my dad and MaryAnn took us on a cruise to Cuba. Right?! I […]
