Traveler Tuesday – Sofie of Wonderful Wanderings


I admire people who risk the stability of a stable job or a long-term residence and make travel a priority. Seriously, if I was to start my adult life over I would be the gypsy that I am in my heart.  But at this moment in my life, I like having a nice roof over my head and organic groceries on my table, which is why I am only a part-time travel blogger! However travel blogger Sofie of Wonde … [Read more...]

Thanksgiving week.  Next week is Thanksgiving week. How did that happen? This entire year has sped by with a speed that feels unsurpassed by any other of my 44 years.  Quite frankly it can continue at that speed until the end of 2014.  The second half of this year hasn't been that awesome and I, for one am ready for 2015!

Your Life in Movie Moments

Movies of my Life

I don't generally devote a whole post to a video and definitely not one that is an ad. Disclosure, I will get paid for every click to watch a video.  But sometimes a video just speaks to you. As I said in my tweet, "Everything about this #wheretowatch video calls to the lifelong movie nut in me." I actually relived a movie in my head based on the memories invoked by the scenes in this video and … [Read more...]
