𝐎𝐜𝐭𝐨𝐛𝐞𝐫 𝟐𝟎𝟏𝟓: I watch a Travel Channel segment on The United Arab Emirates. The sun was reflecting against the windows of the Talise spa on the 18th floor of the Burj Al Arab. 𝘐 𝘩𝘢𝘷𝘦 𝘵𝘰 𝘴𝘵𝘢𝘺 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘳𝘦, I thought to myself. The Grand Mosque. Burj Khalifa. Emirates Mall. I wanted to see it all.
𝐍𝐨𝐯𝐞𝐦𝐛𝐞𝐫 𝟐𝟎𝟏𝟓: I arrive to the UAE (@mikes44 remember). The first real time-off from my full time job (only a long weekend). I remember driving into the Burj Al Arab for dinner at the underwater restaurant, Al Mahara. You can’t even drive into the property grounds without confirming a reservation at the checkpoint. The structure is SO much larger than it looks in photos. Dinner at Al Mahara was a tease - I was still longing to sleep in the hotel that lay the foundation for luxury hospitality in the UAE, perhaps even in the world.
𝐉𝐮𝐥𝐲 𝟐𝟎𝟏𝟖: I team up with @jumeirahgroup and @burjalarab to bring a cancer survivor on a day visit for lunch & spa & a property tour. It was magical - the staff even brought us flowers to celebrate “survivorship” ❤️ it is safe to say that since the first day I stepped foot into the property four years ago, a deep connection has been formed.
𝐍𝐨𝐯𝐞𝐦𝐛𝐞𝐫 𝟐𝟎𝟏𝟗: I spend the weekend in a duplex suite on the 16th floor of the Burj Al Arab. When I tell you I barely slept during the nights - believe me, I took in every single inch of the giant sail-shaped hotel. Everyone is telling me that “things have come full circle” in the last four years. And while I’m ecstatic about it - I’m also quite sad. At one point this was a major bucket list item for me and wow how times have changed. I am excited and nervous to see what the next full circle will be like.

It’s the first snow fall here in the North East! A beautiful, exciting and chilly change of scene for us. As we move into winter the more valuable warm comforts become. Treating yourself to an outdoor heated pool is a great remedy for cabin fever.
