Last year, I dedicated the month of September to 30 daily mindset insights called the SPARK 30-Day Challenge, designed to help you be more confident, passionate and successful in your life. Insights include: how to build your strengths and self-confidence, how to deal with fear and failure, the right way to eat and exercise, stress reduction and learning how to be a better friend and partner. All 30 insights are included in this free guide, enjoy!
 
“The SPARK 30-Day Challenge is fantastic! It is so crucial to be reminded – on a daily basis – of important aspects of attitude, proper diet, exercise, healthy and unhealthy relationships, self-talk and other factors that contribute to or detract from building a dream and/or searching for a new job, relationship or lifestyle. The daily email reminders about a new way to think and behave have all contributed to a sense of balance and empowerment during a turbulent time”. D.R., Hartford, CT

Whether you’re dating or in relationship, here’s what I have for a great adventure.
 
The San Francisco/Napa/Sonoma itinerary is one of my favorite trips – so much so that I’ve been back about 5-6 times! All 3 locations are easily done in a week – or you can just spend a week or long weekend in wine country if you want to skip the city.
 
In this guide you’ll find my personal recommendations for: luxury and romantic hotels/B&Bs (I only recommend places I’ve had the best sleeps and many are ecofriendly), award-winning restaurants offering fresh, local and seasonal menus (my favorite style of eating is tapas or farm-to-table), off the beaten path boutique vineyards & wineries (with limited case production and wine you won’t find anywhere else), outdoor adventure, breweries, bars & nightlife. I have personally been to almost all of the places I recommend so you can be assured they’ve been vetted.
 
I also offer itineraries for the following cities: Seattle, Portland (OR & ME), Monterey/Carmel, Lake Tahoe, Santa Fe/Taos, Sedona, Denver, Boulder, Jackson WY, Park City UT, Asheville, Charleston, Jacksonville, Naples, Savannah, Boston, Saratoga Springs, Bar Harbor, and NYC.
