Bali was amazing, a travel dream come true!

Since I’ve been back from an epic vacation with friends to Bali, the first question I get is, “how was your trip?” I have started answering “lame” or something similar, because I got tired of repeating “amazing.” Who goes to Bali and has a lame experience? Not me! I guess it helps that I was …

Photo Inspirations That Keep the Creativity Flowing

Adventures at the Incredible Biltmore Estate in Asheville

Asheville can’t get rid of me now, I’m hooked! This was my 2nd trip, as part of the Uplevel Gold business retreat. Since I didn’t get to visit the Biltmore estate the first trip, I made it a priority in advance this time. And I guess I got lucky, because apparently they don’t usually allow …

Why I Won’t Be Holding the Luna Festival this Year
