Out and about I’ve discovered new spots for lunch and dinner in the southern town where I now reside and plant of galleries that support local artists and a museum across the bay. In my continued quest to eat gluten and dairy free, sometimes it’s just plain difficult. So, most of the time I eat… Continue reading Out and About
It’s been one week since I got married and left on a road trip with my husband. That term, husband still feels strange to say and to read. In truth, I love to say it. We are newly-weds!

I love the smell of freshly roasted coffee beans and brewed coffee and sometimes I like the… Continue reading Coffee, Tea or both?

Maps! Maps! Who doesn’t love maps? I am a map collector. My Dad was a map collector too. He carried maps in the car stuffed into overhead visors and between the seats of our station wagon. I can remember him laying the maps out over the hood of the car or at night over the… Continue reading Maps!
