Staying “Chill” at Disney with the Kids

They say that Disney World is the happiest place on earth and most of the time I agree whole-heartedly. Then there are the times when I am surrounded by exhausted children who are hot and hungry and won’t stop whining. Then, it’s less than magical. Planning for these moments is as vital to your Disney vacation as choosing your fast-passes. Too often I meet people who headed off to Disney with stars in their eyes and unrealistic expectations. It doesn’t matter how amazing a place is, the kids will still be kids and it’s inevitable that everyone will lose their...

Get Away to Great Wolf Lodge

I think we’re all pretty tired of the cold and snow, but we show it in different ways. My husband and I sigh when we look outside and choose not to venture into it unless we have to. My dog lays in front of the door, but if you open it for him he immediately retreats to his kennel. And then there’s my kids. The kids have gone off the deep end! School mornings are filled with tears and fake illnesses. After school until well after bedtime my kids are wound up. They’re restless and they need something to...

The Galapagos of North America

ISLANDS OF LORETO Its not often that I would describe a place as both serene and exciting, but that is exactly the case for the Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto, Mexico. Located on the Baja Peninsula, the Villa del Palmar has a lot to offer vacationers. Breathtaking views of the mountains and the ocean will calm your spirit, while close encounters with whales and other wildlife will get your heart racing. I recently had the chance to learn this first hand! When I arrived in Mexico, I was ready for some relaxation. It had been a busy couple of months in my household and although it was a working trip, I knew the sunshine was just the medicine I needed. The resort was promising, with intricate tiling on the floors, gorgeous stone steps leading to the turtle shaped pool, and of course this incredible view. Resting on it’s own bay, the Villa del Palmar looks out at the ocean  and is surrounded by mountains. Pelicans dive into the water near the beach while guests snorkel and dig for clams. It’s true paradise! We were spoiled inside as well. My King bedroom suite featured a living and dining area, a full kitchen, 2 baths, a jacuzi tub and a huge balcony with an unforgettable view. Villa del Palmar prides itself on being true to the Mexican culture....
