1 Year, 2 Months and 8 Days

That is how long it has been since I posted on this blog, my little internet home. I didn't have the intention of going so long without typing out a few thoughts here and there, but for those who are wondering, let me explain where my focus has been during this past 1 year, 2... Continue Reading →

Foot Shot Friday – Growing

Welcome to my new series on the blog, Foot Shot Friday. Years ago started I started to take pictures of my feet when I went to a new place. I think this little quirk of mine started when I really got into hiking and the outdoors. It's not because I think I have cute feet... Continue Reading →

An Experiment of Service

I love celebrating holidays, a lot. I think I get it from my mom, who always had our house decorated for each holiday and was known for making various colors of pancakes to commemorate each day: pink hearts for Valentines Day, green for St. Patrick's Day and so forth. Celebrating is in my blood. With... Continue Reading →
