I am going to miss these calm west coast Bajan waves lapping at the deck. Their turquoise blue waters are simply mesmerizing, there’s no other […]

I heard a crazy rumor that it’s a little chilly back in the states. Okay not just chilly but downright cold. Evidently, there was even snow sighted at our home last night. Looks like Surferboy and I skipped down at just the right time. Well I suppose this would be a lovely opportunity to share […]

Leftovers, you either love them or hate them right. Most of my girlfriends along with a few family members are not big fans of keeping leftovers.
