Introducing Curated Travel – Great Escape Travel Agency




I’m excited to announce the new ‘Curated Travel’ section of my lifestyle brand. My ‘Sunny Escape’ Travel Concierge has connected with a full-service travel agency, Great Escape Travel, owned by the very successful travel agent, Tim Colbie. As an independent, home based travel consultant, I am now able to offer full-service travel bookings for clients: vacation packages, cruises, dream vacations, destination weddings, honeymoons, spa, luxury, wine and culinary travel experiences and so much more!


This gallery represents just a few of my favorite places, and the images I’ve taken while enjoying my time. Bon Voyage, right?




Behind the scenes of my journey into retirement, I have been researching, examining options, consulting, studying and trusting my gut. Going through some old files, I found my interest inventories from high school/graduate school. Right there, dated 1985, my two highest career interest scores popped out at me–TRAVEL AGENT and STORE MANAGER. Wow!!! #happydance

I’ve owned my online StyleMindChic Boutique for four years now, definitely satisfying that piece of my entrepreneurial puzzle. With nearly 150 posts involving travel on StyleMindChic Life Blog, my passion for travel is clear. Staring at this image again today, I realize that I took this interest inventory 31 years ago this week. I am grateful for my long career in education, and for this reminder, discovered in an old battered file, that I’m on the right track for this new chapter.





This is a huge leap for me!! I am following my passions and, fingers crossed, making dreams come true.

I’m celebrating this launch with a giveaway from the Curated Collections of Style*Mind*Chic Boutique to one lucky winner:

1 – EMME Petite Cosmetics/Toiletries bag

1 – Savvy Sleepers Satin Pillowcase – Luxurious & Anti-aging (in color of your choice)
