My Niece’s Halloween Project

Scared   My niece turns 17 today!  17.  Wow, it just seems like yesterday that I was in the delivery room watching her come into the world.  My niece is becoming an incredible lady.  She is smart, talented and pretty darn cute too.   Curious   This year she was bit by the photography bug and I couldn’t be happier.  Amazingly, she is taking photography from the same teacher I had in high school.  I still take...

Dharma Bums at the Doug Fir


Posted on Nov 9, 2010

  Last Saturday, my husband and I went to see the Dharma Bums play at the Doug Fir.  Anyone who was around Portland in the early 90's knows how big and beloved this band was.  They hail from my husband's hometown and toured all over the world.     In the past year or so, they have gotten the band back together and have been playing sporadically. We've saw them months ago at the Crystal...

Sometimes it's worth waiting 6 months for a project to happen....

Last week I went to Branch Whiskey Bar with Diana.  You can read about our adventures here.  It seems that whiskey keeps popping up in my life right now.  There is something just bad ass about the idea of drinking whiskey.  "It'll grow hair on your chest" –  It doesn't get much manlier than that.  This could possible be the very reason why I'm  drawn to it....

My 16 year old niece and I headed down to Newport to spend the weekend with my mom.  We had fun filled days filled with walking on the beach, the Toledo Art Walk, an old time Jam session where my niece played her ukulele, re-learning the card game Casino, going to garage sales, watching Monks, kayaking, laughing and taking photos.  It was a relaxing vacation and I enjoyed every minute.  Here are some of my...
