Love, Marriage, and Wine

Love, Marriage, and Wine
My sister, Sara, got married last month. Rather than celebrate her dwindling days as a single woman by hiring a cheesy stripper to perform (why pay for something when a woman can get it for free? Ha!), or going on a beer-fueled pub crawl, we opted to do a wine tour through upstate New York’s Finger...

Summer In The City: New York edition

Summer In The City: New York edition
My fellow Lost Girls and I have been busy plugging away at writing the book all summer long, so we haven’t been getting out as much as we used to. Heck, after a few days spent cuddled up with my computer, I consider just going to an evening yoga class a big night out. And while it tends to be naturally...

California Dreaming

California Dreaming
I am in love. You know the feeling, that I’m-so-excited-to-be-alive/ butterflies-in-my-stomach/ nothing-can-get-me-down sensation. However, this high is not for a person, but a place. California’s Central Coast is better than being a single woman landing in Rome if you enjoy breath-taking...

Lost in Ecuador: Sink or Swim in Baños

Lost in Ecuador: Sink or Swim in Baños
In Spanish, the word baños actually means “bathroom,” so I found it amusing that an entire town christened was such (but I promise to spare you attempts at potty humor in this post). My bf Jeff and I learned that the name actually refers to the thermal hot springs, or baths, that well...

Lost with a Boyfriend: Arriving in Quito

Lost with a Boyfriend: Arriving in Quito
After we waited at the carousel in the Quito Airport for nearly a half hour and not spotting out bags, Jeff and I were convinced the airline had lost our luggage. Eventually we spotted them, our two sad little suitcases sitting all alone (just waiting to be snatched) at another carousel several feet...

Hunter Valley: A Hedonist’s Playground

Hunter Valley: A Hedonist’s Playground
There’s a lot more to Oz than the sunburned outback and endless beaches. When my fellow Lost Girls and I heard about the rolling vineyards, gourmet restaurants and relaxing spas that were to be found in Hunter Valley, we refilled the oil in our camper van (we learned our lesson!) and hit the road....
