Some time, at the end of 2019, I remember everyone wishing it would just end, that it was going to be so great starting a new year. 2020 seemed so promising! We had no idea what was on the horizon. No idea it would be the year that we would want nothing more than to […]
my new favorite spot is the corner seat on my balcony where I can see just about all there is to see, including my mini balcony garden. I’m growing some basil, mint, cilantro along with some d e l i c i o u s lettuce and the cutest of strawberries. of course at the […]
well friends, it’s been a while. *checks calendar* yep, almost a year! I’m sitting in a new apartment, and hey, if you’re keeping track, this is our fifteenth move since 2009! this one, though, is finally starting to feel like home. we overlook the lake and a bunch of green–the effect of which cannot be […]
*inhale* let it go. freshen up your space. clear your desk. and while you’re here, it may be time to lighten up your digital life. a few years ago, while upgrading to a new computer, I lost over two years worth of photo files. it was heartbreaking, as it spanned an especially important part of […]

It’s hot. Summer is hot, proven by my social media feed filled with people posting photos of their car thermometers or screenshots of their weather apps. (do you remember winter….and the ice and snow? yeah, me too.) It’s that wake up hot, …go to bed hot, kind of hot. If you’re like me and you […]
first off, maybe you’ve noticed I’ve made some changes around here. I’m not entirely convinced that I love it yet, still tweaking the edges, but it was time for a new look so I picked a new theme and well, here we are. let me know what you think! (or not, you know I’m not […]
it seems as though I haven’t had much to say about this year, from the looks of my posts here. in reality, there’s so much going on, so much keeping my thoughts occupied about the future of our world that creating beautiful blog posts have been the furthest thing from my mind. but memorial day […]
public lands, a love story.
last year we were so fortunate to be able to experience so many of our public lands, parks and monuments. I decided to start collecting patches along the way as a way to remember the places we had seen. I bought our first official patch at the padre island national seashore. the kind volunteer behind the counter at […]
