Christmas in New York

I kind of disappeared from the online world last week when my mother-in-law arrived in New York to spend the holiday with us. Our days leading up to Christmas were filled with fabulous dinners and long walks through the bright city. We were lucky to have a little snow leftover from the previous weekend. Central… Read more »

Park Slope Food Coop

I had the pleasure of discovering the Park Slope Food Coop the other day located here in Brooklyn, just a short walk from Jay’s apartment. It is one of the oldest and largest food coops in the nation, boasting over 12,000 members and established in 1973. What a treat to find a haven of organic,… Read more »

Scattered 4th

I hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend! We made our annual trip back to Oklahoma to visit the in-laws, but it was such a whirlwind this year. I arrived Friday evening for dinner and left Sunday morning after breakfast. While I was there though, I enjoyed some of the natural beauty in Lake Eufaula… Read more »

Eugene Envy

I used to live in Eugene, Oregon, back in my college days and it’s a lovely town that will always hold a piece of my heart. Recently I spent the day there visiting some old friends and walking around my old stomping grounds. Here are a few pictures to share, since I am short on… Read more »

Fall Preparations

The last two weeks have been filled with travel – some for fun and some for work.

Portland is filled with brilliant shades of crimson, gold, blazing orange… Read more »

Autumn in New York

Last night I took the red-eye into New York City. I am here all weekend for work, but I decided to torture myself with a little sleep deprivation so I could have a bit more time to explore the city. This is not my first time to the city, but I think it would take… Read more »

Seattle Meetup

Sunday we drove up to Seattle and back for a NW Garden Bloggers meetup. It makes me feel like a huge nerd to say that out loud – partially because I think I sound like a nerd when I say I have a blog, and partially because this demonstrates my obscene obsession with plants and… Read more »

Home Away From Home

As I mentioned in my hasty post this morning, I just returned from a lovely week in Oklahoma visiting family. My in-laws live there and that has been a wonderful opportunity to explore a part of the country I never knew much about. My fourth of July could not have been more picturesque or more… Read more »

Back Home

As I sat at the airport a week ago today, at 4:30 am, I ran through everything in my head: Did I turn the soaker hoses off? Yes. Did we remember to lock the back door? Yes. Did we leave a clean towel for our house sitter? Yes. Did I write something on my blog… Read more »
