Paolo’s Gelato Italiano

Have you been to Paolo’s Gelato Italiano in Virginia-Highland? It has seriously become my guilty pleasure, plying me with as many cones, cannolis, coffees, candies, cookies, custards, and crepes as my heart (and waistline) can handle. If you ask me, a little taste of authentic Italy is well worth a few extra minutes on the treadmill! Paolo’s […]

Fitness at Exhale Spa

The sexy, sunkissed days of summer are coming, and if you plan to wear cute sundresses and skirts as much as I do, it’s time to get back in shape! For those who have stayed in shape all winter, I commend you and aspire to be like you when I grow up. However, if you’ve got to remove a […]

TAP

When life hands you lemons, make some lemonade, right? (Preferably with a little champagne in it, yum.) A few nights ago, my friend Robyn and I planned a double date with our fellas to check out the latest exhibit at the High Museum. I love their monthly Friday evening events, because they bring in live […]

Hiking Stone Mountain

Just as flowers buds are beginning to open in the springtime sun, so too am I slowly creeping back into fitness. I must have a grizzly bear ancestor, because during winter, I hibernate. I credit my roommate for getting me back into the swing of things, and also for introducing me to Stone Mountain, a place that […]

Chicago-Style Dogs at YumDiggity

May I start by saying that I don’t actually like hot dogs. I will not eat one from the supermarket; they just make my stomach turn. The one exception to my hot dog ban is YumDiggity, at the Sweet Auburn Curb Market. This bad boy is aptly named Digging in the Garden, and it groans under the weight […]

Flying High with Atlanta Helicopter

In 2016, I’m committed to sprinkling a little more exhilaration in my life. I’ve always loved that word, and more than that, I love that feeling you get when you step outside of the day’s well-worn path and do something a little different and a little thrilling. A helicopter ride fits the bill nicely! With […]

Final Days in Panama

Did I mention I had a ball in Panama? Relaxing in the 80 degree weather in January was exactly what the doctor ordered for me. I splashed in the ocean with a glee usually reserved for a toddler running toward an ice cream cone covered in sprinkles and gummy bears. And I’m really glad that I was […]

San Blas Islands, Panama

They say the early bird gets the worm, but on the morning that I visited the San Blas Islands, I think I was awake even before the early birds. We were on the road before dawn was even cracking. Winding our way through quiet city streets and still air, as the sun rose. I was riding shotgun […]

Perfect Weather in Panama

Hello from Panama!  Yes, it’s true. I’ve actually pulled myself away from bustling Atlanta for a few days. Not that that was a hard choice to make. Right after the New Year, it really settles in for me that winter is well and truly underway, which means I have to summon all the willpower I possess to not go into full […]
