Jersey Lavender Fields

Jersey Lavender Fields

Being as honest as possible without being rude about it, I’ll say that this was not my favorite thing to do on the island. First off I lead my mom and I on the wrong path to the farm. By this I mean that I […]

Step back in time at LBJ Ranch

Step back in time at LBJ Ranch

I will be the first to admit that I didn’t know a lot about Mr Johnson before visiting his ranch in Johnson City, Texas. This place is truly a museum to his life. How remarkable it was. Stepping back in time with the house refurbished […]

New London Architecture: NLA Exhibits

I walked past the NLA one day and decided to check out their exhibits.  There was a really great exhibit about the different borough that surround a giant model of the city. This was my Borough… loved living there. I miss it now… sad face… […]

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 […]
