Pickathon


Posted on Aug 20, 2013

  Greg wanted to go to Pickathon as his celebration of his 40th birthday. I must admit, I was a little worried about attending this 3 day music festival. I’m not the best in crowds and I was worried. I’m so glad we went. It was better than anything I expected. They keep the audience levels low and it created a wonderful experience. It never felt uncomfortably crowded. It was so well planned and we had a great time. I...

A New Chapter

A New Chapter


Posted on Aug 10, 2013

For the last seven years, I got off the bus and walked the pedestrian overpass to this building. Seven years is the longest I’ve ever worked anywhere. I spent most of my 30′s here. It’s a place I have come to love (and hate) and I pretty much know it inside and out. My last day was August 1st. I’m very excited to have found a job at my dream college. As much as I am ready to move on to a new chapter, this...

Toronto and Niagara Falls


Posted on Aug 2, 2013

My sis, her best friend, and I went to Toronto in June to visit my cousin and his husband. We had one week to explore this amazing city. We packed each day very full and walked a ton. Here are a few of the trip highlights. On the first leg of the trip, we took a small prop plane to Vancouver. I love the optical illusion of the bent propeller with Mt. Rainier in the background. My cousin’s house is close to Queen West. I love...

Portland Oregon Sign Pinata

Portland Oregon Sign Pinata


Posted on Apr 24, 2013

Karen and I have been friends since 1995. Her 40th Birthday party was last weekend. A month or so ago, she asked me if I would want to help her make a pinata of the Portland Oregon sign for her party. I think my exact words were “hells yes”. We had made plans to meet two weeks before her party, but she was sick and we didn’t meet. Then I was on vacation the weekend before the party. I have to admit, about this time I...

San Francisco


Posted on Apr 17, 2013

  Greg and I took a much need vacation to San Francisco. This was the first real vacation we’ve had in over a year. Our main reason for visiting was to see my bestie Diana who moved down here a couple of years ago. This is the first time I’ve seen her new digs in Alameda. We also got to visit with an Uncle for lunch, visit the Winchester house, and see a SR-71.     I didn’t take my big camera and only...

2012 – Year End Review

2012 – Year End Review


Posted on Dec 31, 2012

  Last week I started thinking about 2012 and how the year had gone. My first thought was: “wow, not much happened this year”. Well, that’s just my bad memory kicking in (which is the main reason for writing these kinds of posts). I sat down with my calendar and reviewed everything I had done and it was a lot! It was so much fun to walk down memory lane and remember the great times over the year. Here are some...
