My Latest Adventures...

Enchanting Lake Atitlán, Guatemala

Lake Atitlan

I am always grateful that I have the opportunity to visit different corners of the world, but some places possess such a spirit that I feel extra lucky to have been able to witness them. The little village of San Antonio Palopó on Lake Atitlán is one of those places. As I write I have the pleasant lake breeze brushing my hair back and I can hear the soft laps of the water against the shore.  Local women dressed in their colorful huipils with their hair swooped up by multi-colored cords walk by with sacks of goods balanced on their heads and men who push their wares of woven bracelets to the small…

5 Reasons You Must Go to Oaxaca City

Santo Domingo de Guzmán

A six hour bus ride away from Mexico City is Mexico’s food and artisan capital of the country, Oaxaca City. It also happens to be as charming as a Mariachi boy band. Having just wrapped up 4 days and 3 nights in this fair city, I have started a list of all its delights. Here are 5 of them: Oaxaca City at sunrise after my red-eye bus ride on an ADO Plantino from D.F. to Oaxaca. This sight made the *trying* to sleep in a bus part well worth it. Cuisine I came to Oaxaca to shop for some of the best handicrafts the country has to offer, but was pleasantly surprised that…

At last! I am not in America! I do love my country, but it was time for me to hit the friendly skies and jet to lesser known lands.  So here I am in Mexico for 10 days before heading to a country I truly don’t know, Guatemala. Chicago…huh? This adventure was preceded by another adventure which took place in Chicago. While I am not at liberty to share all the details of my date with destiny in the Windy City, I can share that my time there resulted in one of the most unique experiences of my life.  I am sure I will be able to share all the behind the…

My Paris Photoshoot

Jennifer Jedda

All photos by French Grey Photography A goal for this year’s winter trip to Paris was to have my likeness captured by a professional photographer in the City of Light. The thought of Madame Tour Eiffel and me photographed in the dawning light of a perfect Parisian morning seemed like just the awe-inspiring moment to record eternally…not to mention the amazing marketing photos they would make for my biz :). So once I arrived in Paris I set out to find the right photographer for the job. My first online search led to a photographer whose website portfolio nearly brought a tear to my eye. The images were so dreamy, so Parisian perfect. This was the photographer I had…
