Unconditional Love

I absolutely adore all three of my fur babies, but there is something about Tess that really pulls at the heartstrings. I try not to play favorites, but it is so hard when she looks at me just so and cuddles so sweet. She truly is a momma's girl. We have successfully pulled off a bird hunting trip where daddy took the bird

Finding the Stillness

I recently read an article about finding moments of silence and grabbing on. The reader was encouraging people to seek out silence. Silence actually doesn't work for me. I prefer to seek out stillness. I love sound. The sounds of life going on around me. The other night there was a power outage in our area. Within moments of the fan turning off

Following your Heart

One of my favorite things about fall is the opening of small game season. I have never been a hunter, I leave that up to my husband. I just go along so that I can see the raw unadulterated joy in the hearts of my fur babies as they do what it is that they know with every fiber of their being they

For those of you that know me well, you can confirm that there are few things that I dislike more than muggy, humid heat and biting black flies (well messy, disorganized chaos is up there as well...). Well, you only live once and I would let nothing disrupt my first trip to the Porkies. So many bucket list items in this park, and

Try New Things

Wow! This vacation is going by WAY too quickly! I can't believe that it is already Friday. Only 2 more days here in the Porkies and most of today all we have seen is the inside of the camper. A wet and thunderous front is moving through the area (almost past thankfully). It worked out well. Tom and I both over did it a little

Be the Water

What a perfect storm today... Well, not a storm as in thunder and lightening. More of a perfect convergence. I live for those moments when I can capture a moment of splendor. My husband lives for the moment when he can capture a bunch of trout. Today we were able to follow our passions separately together and shared a wonderful day traipsing around

Day 1 in Paradise

Absolutely incredible sights I get to share wth all my favorite loves on our first couple days in the Porkies. Life is good here. Life is good everywhere actually. Incredible places like this just remind us to stop and take it in! Time it is going quickly as we try and savor every sight and sound of this perfect vacation. Stop. Be present. Take it

The Lonely Road

I try very hard to live a life not dictated by fear. In my opinion most fears are unjustified and often irrational. I will not allow anyone's imagination, especially my own, to keep me from living a full and adventurous life. Or least I will try very hard... This morning I found myself waking up in a strange city. I had to travel for work,

Get to Know Your Food

So, I  have a few guilty pleasures when it comes to food. One of those horrible relationships is with Totinos Party Pizzas. As far as horrible non food foods go, it is probably my number one "go to" when I just feel like being bad. Well, lately I have been spending so much time being good that I have been really craving the bad. So

Closing Doors

"Close some doors today. Not because of pride, incapacity or arrogance, but simply because they lead you nowhere."      Paulo Coelho I found a doorway that I have come to rely on closed and locked this morning. The lesson learned at the end of the day was that I should have allowed this door to close a long time ago. It literally
