Wanderlust I Must ~ Give Us More Snow, Seattle!

Alright, Seattle. You must have heard me whining last time about missing proper seasons and the smell of autumn. Because this winter, you’ve been bringin’ it with some legit snowfall. Well done, you! I think the whole greater Seattle area has declared it a snow day today even though I only see a couple inches of actual […]

We Are All Different. We Are All The Same.

“Go back to where you came from.” Such a vile statement. Such a statement that I thought would maybe be phased out of our dialogue. Such a statement that has sadly made a resurgence lately. Let me first say my intention is not to pit whites against minorities here. If you have never had this […]

The People Fought For Your Rights. Thank Them For Fighting… Again.

Saturday, January 21, 2017. Saturday, the day after the inauguration of Donald Trump as the 45th president of the United States. Saturday, a glorious, sunny day instead of the usual dreary, winter day in Seattle. Saturday, an outpouring of love and support all across the globe. (Who knew this movement to march had gained such […]

Hello, 2017. Let’s Do This.

Man, I did real bad with blogging last year. Seven published posts. Seven. Seven’s a good number and all. One of my favorite numbers, in fact. It’s the best number. There is no better number. (Sorry not sorry… I couldn’t resist.) But, seven posts is not nearly enough writing for one whole year. What can […]

Fragments Of Love Friday ~ Share The Wealth

my little love note of gratitude to a roof over my head, food on the table, and warm socks on my feet… One of the things that weighs heavily on my mind living in Seattle is income inequality and homelessness. It is extremely difficult for me to turn a blind eye to the state of things […]

Wanderlust I Must ~ The Smell Of Autumn

Autumn… it’s my favorite time of year. I love the feel of the brisk air cooling my cheeks. I am mesmerized by the red and yellow leaves swirling in the air before they float to the ground. I love a soft, warm sweater, a pair of good leaf-kickin’ boots, and oh yes, pumpkin spice all the […]

5 Reasons For Americans To Travel Their Own Country

While some people envy those hopping around Europe, touring Asia, or soaking up the sun on the exotice beaches of Bali, I sort of envy the complete opposite vibe of all that. Granted, I want to visit more outside the United States in the future, and a luxurious Mediterranean cruise sounds lovely once in a while. […]

Fragments Of Love Friday ~ Giving Thanks To The Birthday Girl

my little love note of gratitude to my punkin’… This spunky little girl with a big personality has experienced a lot throughout the years. And, we just celebrated her 10th birthday! I admit it… at first, I didn’t want a Chihuahua but… she needed a home. And, I grew up in a home where we […]

Fragments Of Love Friday ~ Time Flies

It has been almost one year and eight months since the husband and I moved to Seattle. And most days, even though time feels as if it has zoomed right by us, it seems like forever ago and not just a measly 20 months. Although I probably bitch more than boast about living in Seattle, I am […]

Hi again! Let’s recap this bitch.

Hey y’all, what’s happening? OK, I am not sure what I’m doing here with this little ol’ website of mine. Obviously, I haven’t written much the past year. I was planning on getting back into photography and at least blogging photographs and such, but then as with the past two or three years always in the month of […]
