Skiing in Utah
Zion National Park
Our family loves to cruise as it takes the thinking out of “where are we going,” “what are we going to do,” where are we going to eat,” etc.
Cruising allows us to “sample” different places to see if we would like to visit again for a longer duration.

Also, because the venue is so awesome, I felt an article on Karisma Resorts Weddings was needed because this place is an amazing backdrop for a wedding.
I was fortunate to go to Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto, Mexico twice on a press trip and wonderful memories were made on each trip. The first time with I went solo and made some wonderful new friends. The second time I attended with my son to participate in the grand opening of their AMAZING golf course.

I spent an amazing week in San Miguel de Allende and took a few thousand pics. Unfortunately, the only photos I have processed and used to date are for the article, The Doors of San Miguel de Allende.
