It's Thanksgiving, Y'all! For those of you outside the US, Thanksgiving is a holiday that celebrates gratitude, family and time together. It's a moment for us to acknowledge what we're grateful for and try not to talk too much politics or religion at the dinner table. It's universally considered a successful holiday if no one… Continue reading Happy Thanksgiving
I'm baaaack! If you've been a fan of the blog for a while (like the beginning) you'll know I had a cruise scheduled with ten other women, some I work with, some are old friends, some were new friends. It was a five day Carnival Cruise on The Valor and it was in one word....amazing.… Continue reading Cruising & The Single Gal
An Experience Junkie, that is. As the photo of me with the fish will attest, I did in fact survive the excursion to the fishing lodge with The Chef. He has proven himself to not be a serial killer, I found no evidence of blood or body fragments in the lodge and he was a… Continue reading I’m a Junkie
A new day, a new date. Friends have been reaching out to me since I ended things with The Gentleman, just to make sure I'm really ok, and I am. I'm good. I have realized a lot of things recently that have helped me understand how and why I was able to end things with… Continue reading A New Day
This photo pretty accurately depicts how I feel after this weekends Birthday shenanigans. You might think I went hog-wild and hit all the clubs and drank myself stupid, hooked up with random men, got in fights, stayed up until dawn or any other number of things. Nope. Not today, Satan. The truth is, I did… Continue reading Post Birthday Weekend
My sister said something to me last weekend when we were birding just outside Houston at Brazos Bend State Park (where I took this photo) that has stuck with me. She said that it's been a lot of fun watching me learn how to live again. I've sat with that all week. I have learned… Continue reading Make a wish!
I love wildlife photography. When I got my camera everyone was asking if I was going to do portraits. People. Photographing families, proms, babies, graduations, engagement photos, etc. No, no and finally no. I take pictures because I love the process and that treasure hunt. I have zero desire to make anyone else happy but… Continue reading Don’t miss opportunity while you’re waiting for the next thing
It's been a few weeks since I've sat down to write. I just haven't been inspired. In creative projects like this there are going to be ebbs and flows in the process. My energies have been elsewhere. I've been busier than I've been in a long time at work, I've been going on a lot… Continue reading Rabbit Holes
At the moment I'm writing this post, I have no internet connection. Besides that little bit of roadblock (that really isn't a roadblock) I'm living every writers dream. I'm sitting on the deck of a beach house, overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, having just woken from a nap and feeling really relaxed. It's Sister Weekend.… Continue reading Sister Weekend 2.0
I took this photo on our most recent Sister Birding Adventure. My sister focuses on birds. Birds are her thing. Birds are my thing too, but so is landscape, shape, plants, insects, dead things...yes, I photograph the occasional dead thing, it's ok my sister doesn't get it either. I edited this photo and named it… Continue reading Spider Cactus?
