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 […]


Raise the Red Lantern

I thought I’d share some photos from October (yes, October!) with you.  I’m working on a backlog of photo editing from the end of last year.  I guess there were just so many fantastic things going on that I got behind.  And October is always a busy month for us, it seems.  Every year, as […]


Things I Love Thursday: Chihuly

Well, I missed doing my TILT post last week, and almost missed it again this week.  Of course, with my birthday celebrations, my schedule is a little bit in an uproar, but I decided it was important to get this post in this week.  I’ve been having a lot of fun for my birthday and […]


Father’s Day

So, I mentioned a few posts ago that my dad died at the end of February and I haven’t been really sure how to blog about it.  But I do feel like I need to.  I feel like in some little way, I need to share who he was with the Universe.  And, after three […]


Christmas in the City

I thought it would be fun to share some photos from our trip to New York City a few years ago.  New York is amazing at the holidays.  The whole city is decorated and it seemed to me the whole place was filled with music too.  One of our first days there, we spent the […]


Roadtrip

Last weekend I took a little road trip.  It was a much-needed getaway.  And let me tell you, when I stepped out of my car and was greeted with silence, absolute silence – I knew I was in the right place. My first morning there, I caught the sunrise.  I can’t remember the last time […]


A Trip to Rhode Island

Ready for another travel post?  I’m enjoying taking these virtual vacations this summer.  How about you?  Today we’re venturing to the North East, to Rhode Island.  As you can probably tell, we’re working with film photos again too.  Back in May of 2002, I spent a week visiting a friend in Rhode Island.  I was […]


Staycation

It’s Friday again, and in keeping with my idea to post some travel photos, I thought I’d post a local location.  Years ago, I had the opportunity to stay at the Hotel St. Germain here in Dallas.  This is an absolutely gorgeous hotel with only seven suites, each one decorated differently.    As you can see, the […]


Zilker Botanical Garden

So with summer upon us, and a holiday weekend starting, I thought it would be kind of fun to post some of my travel photos.  Eric and I love to travel, but haven’t been able to do any lately, so I thought it would be nice to go on little virtual trips.  What do you […]


Wednesday Walk: Dreams of Travel

Wednesday! I’ve been training my replacement at work this week (I’ve been doing two jobs for awhile now), and you wouldn’t believe the amount of walking I’ve been doing. We’ve walked all over this place repeatedly in the past three days. This morning when I passed by this world map I had to snap a […]


Five Years

On Friday morning I came downstairs to find not one, but two vases of roses from Eric.  We were celebrating our five year wedding anniversary, and I couldn’t believe all the roses!  They were stunning!  He also had a sweet sweet card for me as well. We decided to celebrate our day by going out […]


Austin GPS Photo Safari

A couple of weekends ago, Eric and I went to Austin to join up with the photo club there for a “GPS Photo Safari”.  I was really looking forward to going because it would be my first time out with my new camera.  Plus, as you saw in my last post, we’d pretty much been […]


A Week in Photos

2/14/10 – 2/20/10 Photos from Valentine’s Day can be seen here. On Thursday I headed off for Nashville to attend the Needlework Market with a friend. She asked me to come and help her with her booth. This license plate in the parking lot gave me a giggle. I knew we were in the right […]


The Last of Summer

Although my thoughts, and the weather, have already turned to fall I thought I should probably wrap up my Miami posts (since I am a total slacker and still telling you about the trip we took in JULY). So, here are our last two days. On Saturday, which was also 4th of July, we went […]


Looking Forward to Fall

Now that it’s September, I definitely feel that the transition to fall is upon us. Even though in Texas we are still in the 90s, I can’t deny that the Tuesday after Labor Day always marks that season change for me. My summer white handbag went back into the closet, and I’ve picked a decidedly […]


South Beach

I am so far behind on posting on the blog. But, I am trying to catch up! You may remember that over fourth of July weekend Eric and I went to Florida for a little vacation? I blogged about visiting Little Havana in this post. I thought I’d post some more photos before it was […]


Zoolander

Every so often I join Eric and the photography group he’s a member of on one of their Photowalks. Over the weekend, the group went to the Ft. Worth Zoo. I usually enjoy the zoo, and thought it would be a great way to practice my photography and maybe learn a thing or two. These […]


Under the Big Top

The past couple of summers Eric has taken me to the circus. In fact, the first time I ever went to the circus was when he took me and I enjoyed myself thoroughly. This outing was no different. I love the anticipation of the show before hand. And the snacks… Gotta have a sno-cone! And […]


Little Havana

I realized that I am woefully behind in sharing photos from our trip to South Florida over Fourth of July weekend. And since it is almost the 1st of August, I figured I’d better get on it. Of course, being the shutterbug I am now I decided I’d better break the posts up since I […]


Random Tuesday Thoughts

      On several of the blogs I read, I’ve noticed that there has been an interest in creating a gallery wall to showcase photos and/or art. I wanted to share our gallery wall with you too. When Eric and I first got married and moved into this house, we came to a bit […]


Chameleon

Ok, so I’ve been thinking lately (never a good thing, probably). In my mental wanderings two things have come to my attention. 1) I cannot stand misspellings (typos we all make, granted) and 2) I need to be selective in what I choose to read. So, as far as the misspellings go, Blue-Eyed Bride already […]


Upcoming Adventure

So we’ll be heading off soon for beachier climates (I won’t say warmer, because really 100+ is warm enough, thank you very much). I’ve been trying to get myself organized and ready to go, taking care of all the essentials. Hotel reservations at what promises to be a fabulous place to stayA Cuban restaurant that […]


Third Anniversary Trip – Turner Falls

As I mentioned in this post, Eric and I celebrated our third wedding anniversary in April. It’s been a tradition these past few years for us to take a trip for our anniversary. Eric and I both love to travel and explore new places together, so an annual trip is an excellent way to celebrate […]
