Art and Fitness


Posted on Jan 2, 2011

  I’ve decided that this year I’d like to focus on fitness.  I’ve signed up to walk a half marathon in May and will follow this training schedule. To help keep me motivated, I’ve decided to add photography to the mix.  I’ve started a photography blog called That Jolie Girl Walks.  Besides a place to keep myself accountable to keep training, it will also serve as a place holder for all the photographs...

2011 – A Brand New Year


Posted on Jan 1, 2011

Happy 2011! I'm so ready to start a brand new year.  A new year is a clean slate and that thought is refreshing and inspiring.  December is filled with holidays, gluttony and celebration.  It's overwhelming, exhausting and fun.  I'm ready for a new beginning of better habits in all areas of my life.  My blog is one such habit that I'm hoping to improve upon this year.  As you...

When I was at the beach over Thanksgiving, my husband and I enjoyed a morning of walking on and around Nye Beach.  I ran into this very vain seagull there.  I love when impromptu photo shoots happen when you least expect it.  This is what happened with this guy.     He was pearched on a pole and everytime I got close to him, he would jump to the next pole about 3 feet away.  He was completely not scared and he had no desire...

Thanksgiving in Newport

Thanksgiving in Newport


Posted on Nov 28, 2010

  I spent Thanksgiving with family in Newport this  year.  Here are some of the highlights of my trip.     We went beach combing in Lincoln City.     We went to the Grease Sing-a-long.  The words were added to the 35 mm film and we sang our hearts out in very small theater with about 30 people in attendance.  Such a fun thing to do with the whole family.     We ate lunch at Newport’s historical...
