I did it. I went with Vancouver’s Mom Paradigm Blogger Lee-Anne Ekland to the April Nail Spa to have our end of the summer foot tune up completed!! Heaven. Now, before you go further, I have to tell you there are photos of my feet that are downright nasty. Ugly nasty. And the super […]
The items we need and rely on to make our lives simpler.
This is my final blog post on our recent trip to the Hawaiian island of Kaua’i. It is a look at some of the businesses that impressed me with the service or food they provide to their customers. First on the list is the valet parking service at the Sheraton in Poi’pu. These guys treated […]
After leaving the comfort of the Sheraton at Poi’Pu we headed north to a privately owned condo and then a condo managed by a professional management team. There were significant differences in the way the two condos were operated. The view from both condos was beautiful partly because they are situated right on a golf […]
While on our recent family trip to the Hawaiian island of Kaua’i we had the opportunity to stay in a number of accommodations. The first place we stayed was the Sheraton in Poi’Pu.
