The Summer Of Fairies (Part 1)

This one is for all you pixie dust believers and magic dreamers… for this, my dears, is the summer of fairies! I am a starry-eyed gal, always existing in the mindset that there are, without question,  fairies, Bigfoot, mermaids, unicorns, ghosts, angels, you name it. It’s who I am and how I choose to see… Continue reading The Summer Of Fairies (Part 1)


A Peaceful Sunset And A Morning Meander

While camping this past weekend we were witness to a view- something worth appreciating… savoring. I couldn’t stop myself from documenting this glorious sunset.   The Somewhere In-Between  I couldn’t believe the colors, the gentleness of the air as it gradually got colder and colder. It did not become windy, allowing our campfire to thrive… Continue reading A Peaceful Sunset And A Morning Meander

Cookie Monster Cupcakes- Sigh… I Tried.

A few days ago my one and only celebrated his latest trip around the sun! What better way to honor a grown man’s birthday than with some cupcakes- Cookie Monster cupcakes. Here’s how it went down. I have been feeling like crapola (one of my late grandmother’s favorite words) all week- sinus pressure, coughing, sneezing,… Continue reading Cookie Monster Cupcakes- Sigh… I Tried.

Wax Paper Crayon “Stained Glass”

Have you ever ironed crayons between 2 pieces of wax paper to make a stained glass looking art project? I remember doing this with my mom when I was a kid and I absolutely loved it. I saw a box of crayons for $0.44 the other day and picked them up with the intention of… Continue reading Wax Paper Crayon “Stained Glass”

I Like These Rocks. I Think I Shall Live Among Them.

Happy Sunday evening. Tonight I want to share a bit of peace that I found today. Come along with me on my meandering meditation through the mountains, rocks, trees and along the river. Quiet- no noise that distracts. Alive with the gentle sounds of the earth, the wind and the movement of water. I hope… Continue reading I Like These Rocks. I Think I Shall Live Among Them.

Chicken Noodle Soup, Like Bibbidi Bobbidi Boop!

“I will never open a can of chicken noodle soup again!” I stood on the back porch and shouted to the birds and squirrels. I am assuming, of course, that we’re not headed into a zombie apocalypse. If that happens I’ll totally be eating canned goods without complaint, and running for my life, or hiding,… Continue reading Chicken Noodle Soup, Like Bibbidi Bobbidi Boop!

Shidoni – An Inspiring Experience!

Between my home in Colorado and my mom’s home in New Mexico there is roughly 5 hours of driving, eating, radio listening, audio book listening and sight seeing. I enjoy the drive, it’s pretty (like, mesmerizingly beautiful and full of history) and relatively easy! Traveling with two small children however, requires quite a bit of… Continue reading Shidoni – An Inspiring Experience!

The Little Kitchen Cart That Could

So, I have a small kitchen. Or… I have too much stuff in the kitchen. It’s a little of both. No matter what’s to blame, I’ve been struggling with the size, especially the amount of counter space, and the stuff, especially the stuff clogging up my counter space, for a long while. We’ve lived in… Continue reading The Little Kitchen Cart That Could
