Halloween will fall on the weekend this year. It’s a great time to bond with your grandchildren and give them a little scary yet a fun experience this Halloween weekend. My all time favorite Halloweens have been with my grandchildren. We like to start the holiday with a trip to the Nashville Zoo where we enjoy “Boo at the Zoo”. My favorites are the hayride and the dragon. Aunt K always gives the kiddies special attention at her “Event”. Here are a few ideas to give them a night to remember. Read the rest of this entry
Last month, I wrote an article about storytelling and shared with you a website that I bumped into while scouting for a book to give to my grandchildren. While reading a few pages of the Wonderous Ink website, I didn’t have any hesitation. I ordered online and requested a copy. I gave the name of my granddaughter so the book artist and writer could use the letters of her name to describe the main character in the story.
A few weeks later, a special parcel was sent to her doorstep. I am very pleased to see the result. The story was lovely and the finishing of the the book was perfect. The book is titled “The Wondrous World of McCamy”. My little angel got the book. Her mom said it was like Christmas in summertime as McCamy couldn’t contain her excitement and joy upon receiving her gift. They sat down, enjoyed the lovely colors and read the book together. I wish I could have been there with her but this little thank you is good enough for Nana. Read the rest of this entry
I love having time in summer for special activities to enjoy with my grandchildren. What’s your favorite time of the year? Some may say Winter as they like the holiday rush. Some will say autumn or spring as they love the falling leaves or flowers in full bloom. While many, including me and my grandchildren love summer! It’s the time of the year when school is out and everyone loves to go out and enjoy nature. Or even time to kick back and chill in the air conditioning. Read the rest of this entry
It feels so nice that Spring has made its way here in Nashville. But what I’m really happy and excited about is the fact that summer is drawing near! Clear skies, sunny days and humid weather inviting us to enjoy a soothing soak in the beach, river or lake. Whatever your agenda this coming summer, I would like to share a handy app that can make your itinerary creation easy and make your travel experience cheaper and worthwhile.

Travelling is fun especially when you’re going to a foreign land to explore the place, meet new people, eat their delicacy foods and “get down” with a new culture. To get the most out of my trip, I make sure to do intensive research on the little known “go to” attractions within the city or outskirts of the area, scour the best hotel or resort accommodation deals and the “must try” diners and restaurants.
TripAdvisor is my ultimate companion when creating my travel itinerary and should be yours too! It’s all about travellers sharing their photos and experience with other travellers. Read the rest of this entry
