Return Visit: Early Fall at Vander Veer Botanical Park

On the first perfect fall day last week, I drove south on Harrison Street and decided to take a turn into Vander Veer Park in Davenport to see what  the new season had brought to the botanical center. The park, established in 1885, and conservatory are a special place for me to gather my thoughts and to enjoy nature in the middle of the city.

Enjoy Great Comfort Food With A River View

Fall is here and beautiful weather means that I want some comfort food in an outdoor setting. My sweetie and I took a drive to LeClaire, Iowa. LeClaire is a fun shopping destination river town in the area. It is also known as the home of The American Pickers from the History Channel.

Running on Traditions (Part 3): Cocoa Beano

Next to coffee, what gets you through the day best? Chocolate, of course! As a Pre-K teacher, I’m constantly in the discussion, debating with my co-teachers over who is going to buy the monthly chocolate purchase to save a little of our sanity on those “off days.”  Of course, along with chocolate and coffee, exercise is part of that ultimate combo-pack to boost your overall daily attitude and well-being.
