As many of us have, I’ve tried to create new recipes for my family during the quarantine. My husband wanted something different for dinner and I couldn’t think of what to cook. I thought about things I hadn’t ate in a while and Stroganoff came up. I hadn’t made Stroganoff in a long time. I don’t eat alot of beef so I decided to try it with chicken.Read More
For my husband’s birthday, our trip to Houston, TX was cancelled. I wanted to make his day as special as possible. I started to think of what I could do here in Nashville that would feel like we went out of town. I researched boutique hotels here in Nashville. I love boutique hotels because they are unique.

This is how I felt at Busboys and Poets. I felt I had been teleported to that famous scene in my favorite movie, “Love Jones.”
While in DC, my friend Greta and I had a girl’s night. We only get to see each other once or twice a year, so we decided we will try this restaurant we found in the “Eat the City” group on Facebook. Greta hit me earlier in the week to tell me her friend was performing at a poetry slam too. Of course my artsy ass is in. I love poetry and I love poetry slams!Read More
If you are a traveler like me, you are itching to travel as soon as the quarantine is over. But what does travel look like post Corona Virus? Will we be afraid to travel due to the fear of the virus spreading again? Will prices be ridiculous due to companies trying to bounce back from the money they have lost? Will we be afraid to interact with one another?
