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 […]
sometimes being settled is a good thing. spending 2016 on the move was a great thing. spending 78.5% of 2017 in a constant state of flux was a not-so-great thing. so, this thanksgiving, being settled in our own place feels kinda great. gluten free all the things (except those darn crescent rolls.

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 […]
odds and ends.
Working our way east, to take care of some business (those pesky health things that just don’t go away) we rushed through most of the entire west-to-mid-west. we ticked five (yes FIVE National Parks off our list in under two weeks (can you say exhausted) and stopped in at some tourist-trappy gems like Wall Drug and the […]
hey friends. I’ve been the worst at blog-updating, but with good reason. we’re in alaska, as I might have mentioned in a previous post and we’ve been working six days a week. on the seventh day we try to get in adventures, laundry, internet time and rest. *try being the operative word. we’re seeing most of […]
