As a kid, snorkeling with my Dad in the Out Islands of the Bahamas is a favorite memory.

More recently, I was sitting on a hill on the Antarctic continent and watched a small iceberg flip over in the bay in front of me. It was spectacular and something I will never forget.

Stargazing from the Blue Ridge Mountains at Big Meadows Campground in Shenandoah National Park! MAJESTIC is an understatement.

Two months ago, we had a family vacation to Kauai. The entire week was full of adventure – hiking, climbing, boating, snorkeling, and zip lining, while connecting to amazing scenery, including dolphins jumping out of the water next to us and the beach full of sleeping  sea turtles and monk seals.

On a vacation to Florida with my husband before we had children, we were walking on the beach after dinner and watched a total lunar eclipse of a full moon on a clear night, on my birthday!  It was pretty magical – and my husband still tries to take some credit.
