Wanderlust I Must ~ A Utopia Of Fig Newtons & Werther’s Original

As opposed to all the ‘same old same old’ dystopian novels, I would love to read a dystopian (or rather utopian, in my opinion) of where the sole survivors in this world are older people beyond the point of breeding. (Preferably, the cool old folks and none of those conservative nutbags though… know what I’m saying?)…

Wanderlust I Must ~ A Bright & Minimalist Writing Nook

A good writing space is essential. And every artist is different. Each and every one of us will thrive in a completely different environment from the next artist. I hate that stereotypical perception that all creatives are messy. Maybe I’m not as creative as I hope I am (most likely not), but having a cluttered workspace…

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…

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…

Wanderlust I Must ~ From Whence I Came

Most people, upon seeing me, think I’m full on Asian and as such, I receive a lot of questions of “Where are you from?” to which I promptly reply, “Portsmouth, OH”. And of course, you can deduce that causes a lot of confusion and stammering of said rude stranger re-phrasing their question to get at what they…

Wanderlust I Must ~ Ocean Therapy

Close your eyes. Relax your shoulders. Steady your breathing. Join me for a moment of solitude and peacefulness as we listen to the tide of the ocean waves and feel the warmth of the golden sun. Ah, wasn’t that lovely? I’m still trying to kick this cold that I unwillingly welcomed in the New Year, and…

Wanderlust I Must ~ Where I Need To Be

I saw this image on Airbnb’s Instagram feed the other day and instantly fell in love. This, people, is the type of place where novels are written… or people go crazy. Or possibly both. I’ll freely admit I’m not doing very well with my writing. However, I’m doing awesome at not writing! Woo… My biggest hangup is…

Wanderlust I Must ~ Missin’ That City Snow

I’m seriously missing snow right now. I know. I’m one of those weird people who loves snow. And yes, I do mean I LOVE it. It doesn’t feel like the holidays without it. And yeah, I know I can drive an hour or so outside the city to see some snow here in the PNW, buuuut I…

Wanderlust I Must ~ How He Sees

I’m not gonna lie. I wish I could take credit for these images because I love them so much. But, the credit actually goes to my husband. Who knew you could make Canadian pigeons look so good!? He has a great eye for composition, and he has never hesitated to lie on the ground or…

Wanderlust I Must ~ Preparing For Chaos

Can you believe that tomorrow is July already!? I feel like Summer is going to be over in a blink of an eye, and I have yet to enjoy it. Of course, it’s actually quite difficult to enjoy summers in Ohio unless you: Have a pool & want to be in it 24/7 Have a boat…
