Cowboys, Kolaches and Antiques

Cowboys, Kolaches and Antiques

On my visit to Texas I went up to Dallas for a few days to visit my oldest friend… no not in age… the one I’ve known since High School. It always feels like coming home when spending time with her, no matter how much […]

View from Mont Orgueil Castle Jersey

View from Mont Orgueil Castle Jersey

I thought these deserved their own post. The day was amazing, warm and sunny. The sky was blue and the water was so peaceful and beautiful. The views look down onto the town of Gorey. Hope you enjoy them!

Mont Orgueil Castle on Jersey

Mont Orgueil Castle on Jersey

I have to say that this was my most favorite outing while spending some time on Jersey Island over the summer. The views were spectacular and it’s always fun to visit old castles that served as a fortress to be reminded of modern day luxury. […]

Birmingham First Impression

Birmingham First Impression

After spending some time in London the only things I had heard about Birmingham were negative comments delivered with a scoff and sometimes a slight shake of the head. As you can imagine because of this I wasn’t too sure how well I was going to […]

Use your words… 29th of October

Use your words… 29th of October

I haven’t posted one of these in a while so I have a few additions to the list. Being that I have been in Birmingham for the past few weeks the list is growing, which I love! Sometimes I forget to write them down though […]

Absent through the summer

Absent through the summer

I didn’t mean to be so absent. There were so many times when I would think… “I should write a post about this…” But did not. I went home to Texas for a few weeks to be consumed by the heat and spend some time […]

Washington DC – Walking down Pennsylvania Avenue

Washington DC – Walking down Pennsylvania Avenue

I went to Washington DC last November October (2013) when the government and all of their funded buildings were shut down. It rained… just about everyday. It was not a horrible trip because I had some great company but it had its obstacles. I haven’t had […]

Second Day on the North Downs Way

Second Day on the North Downs Way

On this morning my walking partner and I woke up at about 5:30 am with the sun. The view from the B&B window really was lovely. After lying in bed for a little while I asked her… “Are we really going to just lay here for 2 […]
