★ November 1st I was still in Houston for the Houston Quilt Show.  I bought some fabric, and saw some amazing quilts in the show. ★ I made some zipper bags out of some linen panels I bought at the needlework show in Paris.  I was deathly afraid of putting in a zipper, but it […]

★ Picked up The Fiery Cross again to read.  I just can’t seem to get through this book.  I was inspired to pick it back up after watching the first episode of the Outlander series. ★ So, yeah, the Fiery Cross got put down again and I picked up a new book/series – Kresley Cole […]

June in Photos

★ My dad collected stamps, so I saved the cancelled stamps from envelopes for years.  I’d gather a bunch and then bring them to him.  It was always fun to see his reaction when I brought one he hadn’t seen before or needed.  I stumbled across these cleaning out my desk and was overcome with […]

February in Photos

How can I possibly sum up my February in 16 photos?! I’m still in the midst of keywording and editing my photos, so I’ll have to make due with just some snapshots for now.  I flew to Germany on the first and from there Sylvia and I traveled by train to Paris.  We rented a […]

January in Photos

January was mostly full of preparing for my Paris trip.  Eric gave me a gorgeous Kelly Moore camera bag (my first camera bag!) for Christmas.  I had a few shopping trips to pick up shoes, PJs, etc.  I even bought a gorgeous tangerine trench to wear!  I made sure to keep up with my cardio […]

December in Photos

  December was a very emotional month, full of equal parts joy and sadness.  There was a lot of stuff going on that resulted in a lot of stress, upset, etc. in my world.  So I felt a bit like I was balanced on a razor’s edge throughout the holidays.  But, there was definitely a […]

November in Photos

November started off with a bang!  The first Saturday I attended a book signing for Christina Lauren for their latest book in the Beautiful series – Beautiful Player.  I’ll have a post up soon on the series and the book signing too, but I finished Beautiful Player shortly after getting it at the signing!  And […]

September in Photos

How in the world is it November?  October is always a crazy busy month for us, but damn!  And today it actually feels like Fall outside.  Back in September, we had a few Fallish days, but mostly it was still pretty warm.  It was still in the 90s and I was seeing tons of Instagram […]

August in Photos

I always feel that my birthday and then Labor Day signal the end of summer – marking the change from longer days and saturated color to cooler weather and wardrobe layering.  Even though I’m sure we’ll have many more 100 degree days in front of us, my thoughts immediately turn to the new season.  And […]

July in Photos

This summer is just zooming by like nobody’s business.  Frankly, July was a rough month.  Started out fine but then it took a nosedive.  My crazy work schedule took over again and a lot of late nights left me feeling overwhelmed and stressed.  Near the end of the month I made some adjustments in my […]

June in Photos

I really am starting to wonder where the time goes.  It’s nearly the end of July and here I am finally posting about June.  Better late than never though! After the craziness that was May, June actually seemed to take a turn for the better.  I felt like I was making strides in some of […]

May in Photos

I’m looking forward to June and the start of summer.  May was rather a rough month for me.  It started off well, and then took a bit of a nosedive. At the beginning of the month our guild had our first workshop of the year, and I got the chance to finally meet a friend […]

April in Photos

The months keep zooming by faster and faster and April was no exception.  I’m really loving doing these month in photos posts, not only because it’s a great way to remember what the hell I was up to, but it’s also so interesting to see the way the photos change with the seasons – my […]

March in Photos

Something crazy has been going on with my blog and/or WordPress over the past week.  I keep trying to come in and do a new blog post and haven’t been able to!  So, finally here is March in photos. March was kind of a month of indulgences.  Between the Mozartkugeln from Germany, the yummy homemade […]

February in Pictures

I can hardly believe another month has come and gone.  February was a rough month for me.  It marked the one-year mark of losing my dad.  It still feels fresh, and he was on my mind a lot this month.  Work was also very intense this month, but I did manage to take a couple […]
