Honestly, the only reason Johnny and I knew about Wheeling was because it’s my stepfather’s hometown.  After … Continue reading

How Atlanta Ushered in the Year of the Sheep

It was a cold and dreary day, but the crowds had gathered at the Chinese Culture Center for a joyous occasion.  Lunar New Year had arrived once again, and Johnny, my grandmother and I were excited to join in the festivities.  The event was organized by the Atlanta’s ROC Community, with the involvement of volunteers and other participants … Continue reading

Please allow me to introduce you to a small town in middle Georgia by the name of Fort Valley. Despite having lived in the peach state … Continue reading

A few weeks before our November trip to South Florida, I read an article in the Travel + Leisure magazine that Miami Beach was going to host an event called Sleepless Night.  I was so intrigued, that I decided to book a hotel for 2 nights in South Beach so that my husband and I … Continue reading

It's difficult to see and experience everything that NYC has to offer within 3.5 days.  With the exception of Philadelphia, I think we have visited all the major cities in the East Coast.  It's time to broaden our horizon and head west more often.
