These days most of us are very busy and many forget to have fun!

“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” – Augustine of Hippo
Hello, my name is Tomeka, I started Short Weeks – Long Weekends out of my love for travel and the pure joy of meeting interesting people along the way. There is a warm and fuzzy feeling that overcomes me each time I go someplace new that is hard to explain in only words. That is when the idea of blogging was born. My goal here is to share experiences with any and every person that I can through articles, stories and photos.
You may guess from the title of the blog that the focus of Short Weeks – Long Weekends are quick getaways that are usually four days or less. Because I am a mom with a full time gig outside of blogging, I make every attempt to ensure the focus remains on the shorter budget friendly trips. I am a firm believer, whether it is a day trip to a nearby town or a weekend in the Caribbean, everyone can fit travel into their budget. Sorry…you will not find any articles here about backpacking for a month in Europe. Long weekend travel articles are what we do best along with reviews of hotels, restaurants, things-to-do and last but not least WINE!
Since the launch of the blog, readership has jumped and contributors have come on board to provide more content than I could produce on my own. I’m so excited that my original idea has grown into more than a hobby! Even though I was born, raised and live in Tennessee, all of Short Weeks – Long Weekends’ contributors live across the United States, with thousands of miles traveled around the world.
