Christmas In July

Christmas in July This week has been the hottest week of the year with temperatures in the nineties and the heat index above one hundred. Hard to imagine a ride on the trike in these extreme conditions but we sure did! It has been too long since we last rode. So why not head to…

Home ‘Away’ From Home Improvements

Late Easter, late everything. I am really itching for some much needed R&R. I feel like by this time last year, we had already taken more trips. If we did, I don’t know how we fit them in. Hubby is traveling more for work, and since we adopted Scruffy, it doesn’t seem like we have…

OBX Bound

I am partial to our coastline. You will often hear me say, “We have the best beaches”. I will sneak off as often as I can, just to take a leisurely stroll, pick up a few shells and take in a deep breath of salty air. The best part about the beach is the feeling…

Dandelions

Every family has their own traditions, ours happens to be, the tree goes up right after Thanksgiving, and down with the New Year. I have to admit, I’ve missed the wooden deer in my front yard, especially since we shine a spotlight on them. I think I miss the light most, but, if you’ve noticed,…

Finding Beauty Wherever You Go

There is really not much to see on the short walk from my hotel to the convention center in downtown Indianapolis, but, if you look real hard, no matter where you are, there is always something beautiful to see. A great example is the underpass on the way to the convention center. At first glance,…

Apple Picking

I have always been motivated by the changing seasons; spring cleaning, summer grilling, fall sweaters and cozy winter nights by the fire to name a few of my favorite. The first thing that comes to mind when I think of fall is pumpkin but apples are my next favorite runner up. On our recent trip…

My Top 5 Travel Tips

No matter if I am headed out for the weekend or off to a convention, I always use the ‘pack as you go’ method. The night before, I pick out my clothes, jewelry, and shoes and get those packed up. As I am going through my normal evening routine, things I use go in my…
