About me…

I’m a desert dweller who loves the beach, a single mom who homeschools, and a writer who loves to travel. My personal philosophy is that life is about going places and experiencing things – and sharing those experiences is an important part of that equation. (For more on that topic click here.)

About the blog…

“We’re all stories, in the end. Just make it a good one, eh?”
— The 11th Doctor, “Doctor Who” Season 5, Episode 13

I love stories, whatever the length or medium might be. Haiku or novel, full length motion picture or vine, a dance or a painting – each one can tell a story with depth and breadth enough to take your breath away.

Everywhere you go and every minute of your life is a story. Those stories might play out as epic, action-filled, heart pounding dramas but usually, they play out in the quiet moments that slip by largely without notice.

I like finding stories by surprise and I’ve found them in some unlikely places, such as during a jog or while standing in line at a tourist destination.

Stories are everywhere.

This blog is a collection of stories from my life. Topics can include anything from west coast swing dancing to geocaching and from traveling around town to traveling around the world. Just about anything is fair game. I look forward to sharing my stories and I invite you to do the same.

About the book…

Never in my wildest imaginings did I ever think I’d be an Army wife, let alone an Army wife living in a foreign country. My travel memoir, Where the Heck is Ausfahrt? Five years of fests,  foibles, and adventures as an Army wife in Germany, is a work-in-progress chronicling my experiences living and traveling overseas between 2000 and 2005.
