The last few months in our world have been like no other.
Work is at an all-time-busy, we’re making some big life decisions and we’ve strung together a sequence of “best of” travel experiences that we’ve coined our Ultimate Honeymoon (in honor of finally having a legal marriage that is expected to stick). Read more
We should not be left alone with all of the Kettle Chips we have in the house.
We have been obsessively making our way through several flavors as we get all caught up on stuff and finalize our camping adventure before taking off (next week!). Our desks are, uncharacteristically, bursting with papers, books and files – many carry the telltale sign of having eaten potato chips. Colorful salty fingerprints. Read more
“It’s about this big,” the doctor said, holding two clenched fists end-to-end in front of his chest.
“Wait a minute, Didn’t you say it’s the size of an orange?”

Giving back and travel are both big parts of what our No Vacation Required (NVR) lifestyle is all about. So, when we got the full scoop from these amazing women, we couldn’t wait to join in. Read more
We try to live deliberately; for us, a big part of what that means is seeing as much of the world as we can while we can. Needless to say, this writing gig fit us like a hand in a glove. Plus, as part of our rejiggered life, we make a living – virtually – by doing a lot of writing. Double score, right? Read more
Aria vs. Encore.
Our travel writing assignment in Vegas is over (at least the visiting Vegas part is). We’re back at our home-base, trying to get back to a normal schedule and trying – more than anything – to convince ourselves that we shouldn’t try to duplicate Society’s deep fried mac ‘n cheese at home. That would not be a good thing. Read more
