A Perfectly Crafted Moment

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Stearns & Foster, but (as always) the content and opinions expressed here are all mine. In my mind, life is a series of perfectly crafted moments that at any given time I am creating, chasing or enjoying. In the noise of life, we are surrounded by simple beauty that we often don't take the time to enjoy. I love nothing better than to wake up in … [Read more...]

Music Memory Monday – Bizarre Love Triangle

This week I am taking back in high school, well my high school years any way. I was a Journey/Bruce Springsteen kind of girl, there were a few Duran Duran songs that I liked, but for the most part I did not dig on the Pet Shop Boys/Tears for Fears/Depeche Mode, that was more my sister. And as it turns out, when my family moved to Steilacoom, Washington where I would continue high school as a … [Read more...]

J’adore #64 – Coffee Cup Edition

Since yesterday was National Coffee Day (see how I celebrated), I thought I would share some of my favorite coffee mugs on this edition of J'adore.  J'adore is my series of digital discoveries made during my internet travels.  I am not big on shopping in stores, so my window shopping (and "real" shopping) is done online. Given that I work in an office and have done so for the last twenty-six … [Read more...]

National Coffee Day

Oh this could be my most favorite holiday of all!  I am not a big fan of the "real" holidays, but I love the food and beverage days! Coffee has been apart of my life for a VERY long time.  I shared all the details in My Coffee Story. After you understand where my deep love of coffee came from you'll see that my other posts on coffee come from a position of authority! Hey, everybody is an … [Read more...]

The Numbers Game

This past week I read a really inspiring post from a new blog I recently started reading by Maxie McCoy. In "What are you Measuring," Maxie reminds us that we are not measured by numbers, but rather by moments and by love.  A few of her brilliant words: You’ve got a credit score. Letters by your name. You’ve got 140 character bios. And super sassy business cards. Bullets on a resume. Figures in … [Read more...]

National Woman Road Warrior Day

What an amazing holiday, right!? While I, myself, am not a road warrior (always a wanna be one though!) there are many, many rocking chicks out there who are. I am always inspired by them. So in honor of today and to honor female road warriors everywhere, I thought I would share some of my favorites! Kristin Luna of Camels & Chocolates You would think buying a home that needed a … [Read more...]

Music Memory Monday – Journey’s Lights

This series was inspired by an old blogging friend's post on Transient Travels. "When music takes you places" posted in 2009 and I ran my own series for several weeks that year.  I have updated my posts and am re-running them now as these songs and the memories they evoke are timeless. Journey's Lights As I have mentioned numerous times, I grew up an Army brat, meaning we moved around a lot. I … [Read more...]

A Peek into Chez Moi

For several reasons that I am not going to go into, the Misadventures Clubhouse (a.k.a. the place where we live) is officially on the market.  Not for dates...for sale.  I haven't shown very much of our home, but now that it is sort of out there on the interwebs, at least in the San Francisco Bay Area, I thought I would share a peek into chez moi.  It is another way for you to get to know more of … [Read more...]
