Dress Obsessed: Shopping For Your Inner Geek

My friend and co-worker Kristi is always wearing the most unique dresses.  I asked her if she’d write a guest post about her favorite places to find her amazing outfits.  Thanks for sharing, Kristi!   When I was a little girl, my fascination with Disney animation easily translated into adorable dresses and cute printed blouses […]

Visiting Virginia: Paradise Found in a Shipyard’s Shadow

It is difficult to define the word “paradise” because it means something unique to everyone. To me, paradise is an isolated cabin in the Colorado wilderness. To you, it might be a white sandy beach beside turquoise waters in the Caribbean. But paradise also can be found at a wooded site on Victory Blvd. between […]

The 5 Best: Pens for Everyday Writing

  I’ve always been a bit of a handwriting freak. R/PeanshipPorn is one of my favorite subreddits. I think it began when I was young. I remember my mom teaching me the “right” way to hold a pen between my thumb and forefinger. She said holding it that way would give me those most control […]

The park is part of Portsmouth’s Path of History, a self-guided walking tour featuring a string of historic sites tracing the routes of Old Towne back to 1752, from the home of the Union […]

Family Photos at Fort Monroe

I met Derek and Allison almost two years ago now.  When we met, it was just the two of them. They were getting ready to celebrate their fifth anniversary.  Fast forward to 2017, they added a dog and a baby to the equation almost simultaneously, and now they’re getting ready to leave town so Derek […]

Visiting Arizona: Sedona

The drive from the Grand Canyon to Winslow is as desolate as it gets. Once we got through Flagstaff, the trees fell away and the desert stretched to the horizon, interrupted only periodically by random rock formations and jagged hills. We got to Meteor Crater in about 2 hours. The wind was howling over the […]

Visiting Arizona: The South Rim of the Grand Canyon

There’s nothing like a hike on Bright Angel Train to remind you how out of shape you’ve gotten. We started early in the morning on Tuesday, June 2, at about 7:30. We took the shuttle bus from Yavapai Lodge right to the trailhead. The shuttle at the canyon is really awesome. There are three lines […]
