WA for the summer!

Growing up in the sunshine and warm desert living of Arizona, I don’t think I ever considered Washington state to be a place I may reside. But I also didn’t think I’d marry an adorable guy I’d met in the 5th grade. Never know what the future may hold, right?!? On our trek north from…

Friday Faves, 4.0

It may simply be waves Or the rhythmic sound against the shore As I look out upon the ocean My heart seems to grow more and more Apparently the children’s literature class I suffered through took has provided me some poetry skills?!? Albeit juvenile and completely undeveloped, there may be poet potential within me.  Oh,…

~ Energetic Hygiene ~

Is that even a thing?? Looking across Lake Tahoe feels like energetic hygiene to me on so many levels.

Those are just a few terms/phrases I’ve often used for Wednesdays in my lingo, surprisingly I’ve never thought of “Wordy Wednesday”.  Surprising because (according to S. Rad) I can be very wordy at times, somehow almost synchronizing with when he’s ready to leave and…

The big 4-0!!

I’ve officially made it around the sun 14,600 (or is it actually 13,884 times (365 x 39 or 40??)) times now.  WHOA…either way, that makes me sound OLD! While looking back at the number of years passed definitely makes me sound old, I definitely do not feel old.  In the spirit of youth and longevity, I’m kicking off my 40th…
