Project Discover Week #18

Before I write a single word I just want to say how AWESOME Wonder Woman is! Go see it. And if you can see it Dolby Atmos - do it!

On Monday, just after 4:30 a.m. we jumped into the Jeep and headed to the San Francisco Bay Area for a visit.  Our plan was to drive 9 hours to Sacramento … [Read more...]

The Ultimate Toolkit for Working At Home

Working at home. It’s the dream, right? Maybe. Being your own boss, setting your own hours, and choosing what you work on. All that sounds awesome. But what people don’t realize is that there is a whole lot of work that occurs to make that happen. And sometimes you really don’t know what you are getting yourself into.

Monthly Blog Goals: June 2017

I started this series because I enjoyed reading my friend Natalie's monthly accounts of how she was doing with her own blog, Cosmos Mariners. I knew it would be a good way to have some accountability for the many hours that I put into blogging.

And I would have lost... It was warm over the weekend, and it was a holiday weekend, so to avoid the crowds who were out and about taking in the sun, we headed to the movie theater to see, you guessed it, Baywatch … [Read more...]

5 Things Johnny Depp Taught Me About Life

With the opening of the fifth installment of Pirates of the Caribbean, I'd thought I'd update this post from March 2010. Despite Johnny Depp's many highs and lows the lessons he's taught me about life remain true to this day. Johnny Depp has been in my life a long time.  I, like most other Gen X girls, adored him from the moment he appeared in 21 Jump Street.  With my father begrudgingly … [Read more...]

Project Discover Week #16

Week by week is different here. On the road last year travel from place to place, it made sense that our environment and our schedule was always in flux. After nearly four months here in Portland sticking to one spot, you'd think we would have developed a routine, yet we haven't.  I thrive on change, I can adapt to just about anything, but there is an underlying current of the unknown that is … [Read more...]
