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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
driving across the country, the landscapes and landmarks fly by the window, and just like in life, you don’t really know what you’ve missed until you sit back and contemplate the memories (or in this case….scroll through iphoto) also, just like in life, being on the road has it’s ups and downs as we’ve learned. […]
hard days. days like yesterday, when we went to do laundry, find internet and get groceries and only accomplished two of the three. (the internet we found was so slow it was worthless for what I needed it for; mainly downloading new things for us to watch during the dark, cold hours between sunset and […]
heading into the Hudson Valley we were greeted with the stunning beauty that I remembered from living there two years previous. returning here was more than just a place to stop over and see friends, it was type of cleansing; a needed return to put a new memory on the place that had left us […]
this morning we had ‘christmas’–a few days early, as we’re leaving here tomorrow (finally?) for the second mini leg of our journey. last weekend we had second thanksgiving. (although I was holed up in the bedroom under a pile of pillows and medication due to a stress-related migraine situation so only experienced the leftovers….) we’ve […]
livin’ the dream.
I hear people say this all the time. 99% of the time, I’m pretty sure it’s sarcasm. For instance, when my (now former) boss would answer her phone; and in response to what I imagine was the standard, “How are you today?” inquiry she would reply, “Oh, you know, livin’ the dream.” Translated: “I’d rather […]
beach days / fading away.
today–well, this weekend, marks the official end of summer. yesterday I realized that once again I let time fly by….and the beautiful days were coming to a close way to quickly. so last night I sent a text to this guy; that said, “tomorrow we go on an adventure.” and this morning, we did. beach […]
home is where you make it.
When I was about seven, we moved from the tiny brick bungalow, and the only home I’d known, into a shiny, new, yellow aluminum sided four bedroom colonial. It was nestled on a the end of a cul de sac in a neighborhood that was full of strange kids who would become my walk to school […]
