The Poconos is as perfect a getaway for a group of your gal pals as it is for you and your significant other.

  This was a hosted trip covered by Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau. I don’t know about you, but when I think of the Poconos, I think heart-shaped beds and champagne flute bathtubs. It is like the quintessential couples weekend getaway destination, with all of the mirrored ceiling clichés one can think of. But, in reality, there is more to it than that. Nestled in the Pennsylvania mountains, visitors can enjoy outdoor adventures year-round while also partaking in delicious culinary experiences, antique shopping trips, or a relaxing day at the spa, making as perfect a getaway for a group of your…

So, recently my friend (and Pursuit co-founder) Sue and I went a bit rogue and decided to take a leadership leap and hustle ourselves up to New York City for a few days to attend the 2017 Inc. Women’s Summit. I didn’t know much about the Women’s Summit when I agreed to go, but Sue found it intriguing and suggested we attend together. If I’m being honest, I think we were initially more excited about the city experiences we had planned than the actual Summit content. Because, NEW YORK.

5 Lessons I Learned While Traveling To London And Paris

  When I was a little girl I used to dream of traveling abroad. An avid reader, I quickly discovered literature that would let me vicariously experience lands that I hoped to one day visit. Summer after summer I would lay in the hammock in our front yard and read all the Jane Austen and Bronte sisters books I could get my hands on. I was obsessed.

Beautiful bridges of Paris

This post on my experience in Paris has taken me forever to write. I’ve revised and written it 1,000 times but no matter how hard I try I just can’t seem to do it justice. For three euphoric days Michael and I ran around the City of Lights and, like most first time visitors, tried to see as many attractions that we could. If you’ve not had a chance to visit yet, let me forewarn you… Paris will steal your heart. Crepes, baguettes, French champagne, glorious architecture and the flashing lights of the Eiffel tower – everything about Paris is bliss. Day 1:…

Travel is my passion. In my mind there is nothing better than hopping on a plane or a train and embarking on an adventure. Hotel life is the life for me. I love everything about it! As a working mom though, I don’t get to travel as much as I would like. My husband knows this and while he might not share my enthusiasm for hotel life, he also loves to see the world. This year marked 20 years of marriage for the two of us. TWENTY YEARS, PEOPLE. That is 7,300 days and 175,200 hours. I think we can all…
