    November 1, 2019

    The trip of a lifetime! And a very special one at that. Hawaii had been my number one place to go ever since my Mom and Dad went for the Ironman a decade ago and did not bring us kids. Rude! But now being an adult, I get it. Maui and Kauai were magical in their own ways.

  • The Golf & Spa Trip – Phoenix

    February 28, 2018

    I have an obsession with Arizona. I somehow end up here every few years, along with every other Chicagoan. The Phoenix area has so much to do ranging from golfing, to hiking, to bars, to spas and to events. The Spring and Fall weather always crisp and sunny!

  • The Cousins Trip – Cape Cod

    June 30, 2017

    Beach vacation at its finest! No shoes, no shirts, no problem. Cape Cod was filled with beach days, lobster rolls and clam bakes. Cocktails were made with breakfast and served next to the nighttime bonfire. It was 5 o’clock somewhere, especially for our group of “Buzzin Cuzzins”.
