Iberostar Grand Bavaro

Iberostar Grand Bavaro

We recently returned from a fabulous (and much needed) vacation to Punta Cana’s Iberostar Grand Bavaro.  I must say… the ‘Grand’ lived up to its name.  We have stayed at many different Iberostar resorts over the years (you’ll see my list below), and if you want luxury, fantastic 5-star meals, a pristine...

pineapple principle

Pineapple Principle

I was on Pinterest the other day and I saw a post that caught my eye.  It was a picture of a pineapple and a cute saying below.  It struck deep inside because it is a saying that every female should try to follow.  The pineapple principle is a great way to live...

ice cube apple pie

Ice Cube Tray Apple Pie

Do you have a sweet tooth? Are you more of a chocolate lover? Or a pie lover?  Personally, I prefer chocolate desserts over anything else (why even bother with fruit???), but when I saw this recipe on Facebook, I knew I had to try it. Not only because it looked yummy,...

Having An Attitude Of Gratitude

This weekend is Easter. A time of reflection, family, renewed life, and chocolate of course.  Do you spend Easter quietly with your spouse? Or do you have a big gathering with family?  Do you participate in an Easter Egg hunt? Or do you read your Bible about Jesus returning?  Whichever way you celebrate,...

A Scrumptious Snack

My fantastic sister in law dropped off a delicious treat the other day. These savoury granola bars. What’s awesome is that she included the recipe with them. How thoughtful was that?  That is definitely an addition I am going to incorporate when I deliver yummy treats to loved ones, especially...

A Guided Drift

Have you ever been on a path – a road – a journey and you kept encountering road blocks? Or that path seemed to have lost its luster? The excitement was gone (or really… it never was there to begin with)?  You just may be on the wrong path – the...

A Wordle Wake-Up

There is a new #trend going around. Wordle. Have you tried it?  It’s via The New York Times link and it is a word game that you have 5 chances to complete.  As you may or may not know… I love puzzles so when my son first told me about this (and...

St Patrick's Day

My Pot Of Gold

St Patrick’s Day is tomorrow.  A day of luck. A day of green. A day of leprechauns. It is also a special day in our household. It’s my husband’s birthday.  Our house has been blessed with a pot of gold – my husband.   You’re the pot of gold at the end of...

open book

An Open Book

Do you like to read?  I do.  Well, I go in spurts actually.  There are often times I get so immersed in a book that I can’t wait for the next chapter and other times I set it down for a few days and picking it up periodically.  I love how a book can...

bucket list

Bucket List

We have just finished our second month of 2022 – the shortest month of the year – yet what seems to be the longest month due to winter.  This got me thinking and dreaming of all the things I’d love to do in the future – my bucket list.  Do you have...
