These pictures were taken two years ago, but then got buried in my drafts when I had a bad case of writer’s block and no inspiration. It was around Thanksgiving 2016. My mom was in Europe with her sister. There wasn’t much to do, so we took a walk. I don’t have any pictures from […]
During my trip to Michigan, I wanted to visit the cemeteries of my relatives. Luckily I unknowingly chose a hotel right in between two main cemeteries where my relatives laid. Unlike the the Southfield Cemetery, the Holy Sepulchre Catholic cemetery was massive and easy to get lost in. It was an icy November day, and […]
Driving along the Blue Ridge Parkway, we discovered a trail during a stop at an overlook. The trail weaved through and around giant boulders, and followed the path of the Blue Ridge Parkway, underneath the busy scenic road. This stretch of the Blue Ridge Parkway road is the Linn Cove Viaduct, which wraps around the […]
The summer heat is finally gone. The days have gotten colder, and the night comes a little sooner now. Leaves have started changing colors and falling to the ground. Everything feels a little spookier. I love this time of year. Two years ago I spent most of September and October sewing this Halloween dress. I […]
**Part of my collection of poor pictures that have been stuck in my drafts for a year or more as a result of my uninspired period** It’s always fun to wander around Old Salem, but it just seems to become the most exciting in the fall. As the cool days just start to turn into […]
When planning a trip to explore the mountains, I wanted to include a hike; one we hadn’t been on before. On a quick search I found a trail to the top of Hawksbill Mountain. It was labeled as moderate, 2.2 miles round trip, with 360 views of the mountain range. That was the one! During the […]
Fall is Chester’s Favorite time of year. He sits in the windows all day, watching the leaves fall. Batting at the ones that fly close. He runs through the house, to different windows, getting the best view of the falling leaves.
It was time again, to go explore and get lost in the mountains. We left work early on a Friday afternoon and the weekend was packed with adventures. Barely an hour down the interstate and the Blue Ridge mountains suddenly appear straight ahead. I had picked out a new trail to hike this time, one […]
It’s the time of year for wearing all black, wandering around, among the fallen leaves and overcast skies, being spooky. This was Halloween a year ago. I worked all September and October making this dress. I kind of used a pattern but mainly made it up as I went along, which is usually how I […]
The other day, huge gusts of wind blew so many leaves off the trees. Chester had a great time watching, and trying to catch all the falling leaves. Happy Fall!
