Travel with Me

I saw one of the social media challenges about posting pictures of places you’ve been to let us all get out of the house virtually. So I thought I’d post a few fun travel pictures from the past few years for you here to give us all a little taste of the world we are […]

Galveston, O Galveston

We went to visit our girl over the Labor Day weekend. Although I had been with her to pick out, move into, and put together her apartment, her daddy hadn’t been able to see it yet. Nor had he seen the campus that would be her home for the next five or so years.   […]

D.C. Comes Full Circle

If you’ve been around here a little while you’ll know that my husband and I met in Washington D.C. We were both there on summer internships. In fact, this summer is the 30th anniversary of that meeting. As you can imagine, it was quite special for us when our youngest embarked on his own Washington […]

Oops! Missed Monday. Here’s Why.

Oops! Missed Monday. Here’s Why.

Usually I’m really good about getting my blog posts written and scheduled before I go traveling. But after 6 solid weeks of crazy-busy I fell behind–then hopped on a plane. I love that I get to travel with my husband when he goes on extended business trips to fun places. Like Napa, California. Just a […]

Fun with My Guys

Fun with My Guys

We’ve always tried to celebrate graduations with a trip. With the high school graduations, it was an attempt at one last family vacation, although our youngest got his graduation trip alone with us because brother and sister didn’t have the same spring break! When it came time for college graduations, we decided trips were still […]

The Accidental Traveler

The Accidental Traveler

I’m not a very good traveler. I get super stressed over the packing, the flights, the drives. If there is turbulence, heaven help my seatmate-even if it is my hubby, who knows to expects me to squeeze his hand more tightly than when I was in labor with our children! I have learned to deal […]

Philadelphia Update

Philadelphia Update

  What a trip! My daughter and I saw 5 apartments on Thursday and at the end of the day, the choice was quite clear, so that was good. We put the money down and will sign the lease when we arrive there in a couple of weeks. Woo-hoo!!! It’s very secure and well-kept and […]

Boston

Boston

So we left the tranquility of our mountain retreat and braved the big city of Boston. Before I tell you a bit about our time here, let me back up. In December, when our daughter graduated from college, we asked her what she wanted for graduation. She asked for a trip to Boston. She is […]

Business Before Pleasure

Business Before Pleasure

We arrived home late Sunday night from a nine day trip to the East coast. It started out as a business trip for hubby, where he spoke with two other distinguished guests to a crowd of close to 200 about the implications of the HHS mandate, both from a religious liberty standpoint and from a […]

A Lesson in Trust

A Lesson in Trust

This week, I’m preparing to go on another trip with my husband. Part business, part pleasure. But as I was trying to set up a plan to meet a friend at our destination, I realized I didn’t have all the details of our trip. This isn’t unusual for me. In spite of my general title […]
