10 Things I Miss While Traveling

My Braids

I love to travel…it’s probably obvious to most people. I travel a lot (for someone living in the US).  But, when I’m away there are some things I really, really miss…especially when traveling internationally. Obviously…Family, Friends, and My Furry Kids Continue reading 10 Things I Miss While Traveling

Something New: Building a Wall

Disclaimer:  This post has nothing to do with Travel or Photography, but it has everything to do with ADVENTURE.  To me “adventure” is a very personal description.  Anything that challenges is an adventure.  I often find adventure in every day Continue reading Something New: Building a Wall

It Was a Great Day

Today was such a great day and not just because it was my last day of work until January 27th. Last night I made cookies for my co-workers.  I felt like putting a bit of kindness in their lives since Continue reading It Was a Great Day

Already Missing Them

As I write this, I’m exactly (to the very minute) four days away from my flight to Belize (and then on to New Zealand and Australia) taking off.  There is still a lot to do, but most of it is Continue reading Already Missing Them

Bon Voyage

It’s getting real…one week from tonight I’ll be getting on a plane, headed to Belize.  My first stop along my 65 day adventure.  In addition to Belize, I’ll be spending time in New Zealand and Australia.  Via layovers I’ll also Continue reading Bon Voyage

2012 Week #42 and #43

2012 Week #32

Pre Sunset

If you’ve followed my blog for a while then you know I’m often chasing the sun…either as it rises or as it sets. Today I took the boys to Lake Tye. I know that the first photo isn’t “technically” good, Continue reading 2012 Week #32

Aker and His Cast/Bootie

I’m combining the last two weeks to spare you all from boredom.  The last several weeks I’ve been consumed with nursing my little Aker boy.  He had knee surgery.  The first two weeks he was in cast, which I thought would Continue reading 2012 Week #29 and #30
