Maison Callier Tour

Traveling the World Through our Kitchen

Like everyone, our wanderlust has been put on pause for almost a year. As we faced months at home my husband and I made a commitment to not gain COVID lockdown weight. We embarked on the Mayo Clinic Diet, which the book teaches is not a diet, but a lifestyle. But this lifestyle change means a lot of veggies, turkey breast, fish (a new thing for me!), and a lot, and I mean A LOT, of boneless skinless chicken breasts.

Visiting Disney in a New World

My husband and I are Disney fans. Part of the reason we moved to Florida was to be closer to Disney World. We finally made it to California's Disneyland in 2015. We even added a day to each of our trips to France to include visits to Disneyland Paris. At one point point in time my childhood goal was to be Alice in the parks when I grew up, and as an adult that dream grew into working in a Disney marketing department.

Exploring the Great Smoky Mountains

After five months of sticking around the house it had finally arrived - August! Way back before COVID-19 was a part of our daily vocabulary we planned a family trip to Asheville, NC to celebrate my parents' 50th anniversary. After lots of "will it happens?", "can we goes?", and "are there travel quarantines?" August was here and we all decided to go.

The European Adventure Comes to a Close

After two weeks and a few days we were in Frankfurt ready to come home. And we were ready. Unlike other vacations where we aren’t ready to come home, we were ready. We loved our trip and had a great time, but after 18 nights you start to miss your own bed. And you, well at least us, start to miss your own coffee!
