What do you get when you have 17 items on a list and someone asks to fit something else on? What happens when three people ask you to drive them three different locations all at the same time?
Eventually you burn out, get angry, or you take control and cancel everything so you can make room for you. That is why the new trend of mom vacations is taking off. I decided to take one with my friend Dana at www.DanaVento.com.
What is a mom vacation and why do you need one?
Mom Vacation – (noun) It is a trip where you plan nothing except who you are going on the trip with and the dates. You may want to plan lodging and you may not. You just go to a location and relax, eat when your hungry, wake up and go to bed when you want. Get this you do not have to worry about anyone.
It wasn’t until my eyes began to twitch that I realized my stress was manifesting itself in a physical way. It was that moment that I knew I needed a break. I needed a mom vacation.
I grabbed a friend and we headed to Outer Banks for a relaxing weekend filled with everything we liked aside from the trip to urgent care. I will explain that later.
We were hosted at the Sanderling Resort in Duck, North Carolina. The rooms were “beachful” elegance and the location is gently nestled between the sound and the ocean. The property offers many amenities so you do not need to leave. You can enjoy the pool, spa, hot tub, water sports, biking or reading a book on one of the many lovely decks complete with rocking chairs.
On the premise the Sanderling resort features a charming dining establishment. The Caffey’s Inlet Life Saving Station No. 5 resort guests and visitors for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The restaurant asks that you refrain from wearing bathing suits with covers. I suggest you take the opportunity to get a little dressed up. You can sit by the fire and warm up as the coastal breeze increases your appetite.Continue reading
El Paso means to pass through. What if passing through wasn’t that simple what if you couldn’t just pass through and remain unchanged when you left? That happened to me. I was on a press trip visiting El Paso. I thought it would just be another city in Texas. I was wrong.
I know cruises can get expensive so I am going to offer you some tips that will keep the memories flowing and your wallet intact. A cruise is the best money saving vacation you can take by far. I can’t tell you how happy and excited my children were to go on a Carnival Cruise. We went on the Carnival Paradise cruise with my sister and her three children.

You are going across town or across the country. You need pet transport. You need tips on how to travel with a dog by car. I understand. I just traveled with three kids and a dog from Virginia to Florida and not only did we survive but we had a great time. It required planning on my part but once I implemented my plan our puppy was happy and so were my children.

It isn’t the hills that beckon or that sound that one hears when they listen. It is the way the grass moves in the wind and the way that the river flows and the rocks that the children throw on its shores. These are the shores where history was made. There are people who are ready to share the tales of time gone by in historical Palmyra.
We are a town of many faces and histories. The city of Palmyra, Virginia is full of people who grew up here and the people who moved here and never wanted to move on. We are a little rural community that believes in one another. We are a hand to hold and a day to explore. We have apple orchards and a country store. We have fresh vegetables that are passed to you by the hands that nurtured them. We have farmers who have jams to sell and the homemade bread on which to lay the spread. We have fresh eggs from chickens that roam.Continue reading
