National Woman Road Warrior Day

What an amazing holiday, right!? While I, myself, am not a road warrior (always a wanna be one though!) there are many, many rocking chicks out there who are. I am always inspired by them. So in honor of today and to honor female road warriors everywhere, I thought I would share some of my favorites!

If you are in the U.S., I hope you all survived your day of gluttonous eating followed by a day of gluttonous shopping.  If you are an expat, hope you had the opportunity to have a little bite of home at a Friendsgiving.  If you are neither than welcome to Saturday!  During this holiday weekend I have been hibernating at home, we ducked out Thursday morning for dimsum but haven't left the house … [Read more...]

Mr. Misadventures often says that it is time for another revolution in France.  That what the French fought for in 1789 (or even 1968) has been forgotten and the French need a good shake up. My friend Lindsey sort of hinted to the same thing in her 4th of July post (which I am completely enamored with). Independence.  I once read an article in a newspaper that described the French … [Read more...]
