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…

Summer Solstice

Immerse Yourself In Summer! Click Through And Enjoy! We sure are in the dog days of summer where the humidity is almost unbearable. The days have been getting longer and longer, it’s hard to imagine that with the arrival of the Summer Solstice they are actually getting shorter. If we could turn the volume down…

Summertime Shake

Summer is quickly approaching and the warmer weather always makes me want ice cream. In any form really, but I love a good creamy milkshake the best. My favorite summertime fast food stop is Chick-Fil-A. Not for the sandwich but the grilled nuggets and their creamy frozen lemonade. I came across my magic bullet a…

Sea World

People don’t realize when you travel for work you don’t get to see much. Most of my time is spent inside a convention center. I’ve visited some nice ones though. LOL Last month I was in Orlando and my hotel was right across from Sea World. This was actually a bucket list item for me…

Inspired By Dr. Seuss

After having such a great week of being completely unplugged it was off to Chicago for the week. I left in great spirits, recharged and ready to get back to work. Even though I had to fly out early on Memorial Day while the rest of my company had the day off, I was ready….

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,…

Snow Days

Normally by this time of year we have already lived through our first snowstorm (all 1/2″ of it) but so far no snow, and frankly I am disappointed. I was looking forward to letting Scruffy experience his first ever snow, and secretly hoping to build snow trolls. What are snow trolls you say? Well, I…

From The Mountains To The Sea

I believe I might just live in the perfect location. A few hours west and I can be hiking in the mountains; heading east, I have my feet in the sand in no time! I really do have the best of both worlds and this is my favorite time of year. I let the weather…

Hometown Blessings

Daylight savings time ended last month (11/4) so this time of year people tend to stay inside, I say get out! I am fortunate to live in an area where I can get out and walk downtown where it is well lit and patrolled regularly. The cold winter sky is so beautiful and bright and…
