Travel with Grant

  When I started this blog years ago, it was at a time; the concept was fresh and new. I loved sharing announcements, travels, recipes, photos of dogs and of course, my interior design projects. Social media has changed our lives forever, and personally, Instagram is my favorite place to share. I hardly ever share […]

Mexico City

“The Mexican capital is more cosmopolitan than ever, with world-class museums, vibrant street art and bustling markets.”- The New York Times Mexico City – or CDMX, as it’s now known- has been on the top of my destination list for several years.  I was honestly a little scared about going due to the city’s reputation as a […]


Bom dia (Good day in Portuguese)! Just back from a week with friends in Portugal!  We had the best time exploring, laughing and discovering the lovely country.   We rented a car at the Lisbon airport and drove to Porto (about a 3 hour drive) for a few days.  We next drove back to Lisbon […]

From Russia with Love

Dostoevsky. Tolstoy. Tchaikovsky.  The list goes […]
