National Park Bucket List

Have you been to a US National Park? Me and Audrey 2 at the Virgin Islands National Park They are awe-some. Seriously. If you haven’t been to any, make it a point to go. Especially this year because the National Park Service turns 100! The beauty of each park is awe-inspiring and I just love…

March & April Reads

My March book of choice was All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr. The book was beautifully written, spoke heart breaking truths about the human condition and yet, remained hopeful throughout the story. The main story takes place leading up to and during World War II and the author described the the horrors…

Foot

My feet, pre-procedure. Circa 2015. As I mentioned in my last post, I had a procedure done on my foot in February and was non-weight bearing for six weeks, then in a walking boot for a week. I’m glad to say I’m now walking freely on my own without assistive or medical devices and its…

Holy April!

While walking to my car after work today, the temperature was in the mid-60’s with a slight breeze and the sun was shining on my face. It was a moment that truly felt like Spring and it was delightful. But now that Spring has finally arrived and I realize it’s already April, I’m shocked at…

The Great Cookie Debate

Girl Scout cookies are delightful. It’s rare to find someone who doesn’t enjoy sinking their teeth into those delicious cookies. Two of my nieces are in Girl Scouts and we always buy from both during cookie season. Help the girls and enjoy some yummy noms? Yes please! Hubby loves the peanut butter ones and my…

Happy Leap Day! Hope you’re enjoying the 29th of February and doing something fun like starting a new book 🙂 I zipped through 3 books during this short month and the reads were… Lucky Us By Amy Bloom: This book was the next available on my library ebook wish list and turned out to be…

Crochet

I’ve been creating things for as long as I can remember. Customizing pillow cases with puff paint, making cat beds for the family cat, creating friendship bracelets – the usual creative suspects. However, I didn’t really find a craft I loved and would stick to until I unexpectedly fell in love with knitting after college….

January Reads

Now that I have a Kindle, I have quicker access to books! It’s a bookworm’s dream come true!! My local library has online Ebooks I can check out for up to 21 days and I have been zipping through books like it’s nobody’s business. Which is great, because one of my goals for 2016 is…

Viva Las Vegas!

If you’ve been following my Instagram, you’ve seen pictures from my recent trip to Vegas. My company attends a conference there annually and I was lucky enough to attend this year! Of course it’s a lot of hard work – it’s a trade show, not a vacation. But we do get to enjoy some evenings…

An Ode to my Kindle

Santa brought me a Kindle for Christmas…and I LOVE it!! I’ve been fighting the good fight to support physical copies of books. There’s nothing like holding a brand new book in your hands or the smell of a library with years of publications and diverse topics. Seriously, nothing like it. But the more I travel,…
