There are a lot of things you do or even learn while you're on a two-week road trip. Of course, a lot of what I did or learned can be applied to trips in general. But I thought it would be nice to share some these things here for you today in hopes that it might help you some day. And please don't worry, I was not standing that close to the trolley to take the photo. Zoom lenses are awesome like that. :) 01 | GPS. This is by far one of the most valuable tools we had--in both [...]
One of my favorite parts of New Orleans was going to Lafayette Cemetery, which is locoed in the Garden District. For anyone going to New Orleans and wanting to see the St. Louis Cemetery 1 in Jackson Square, as of March 1 you have to have a tour guide and the one we inquired about was $26 a person!!! We didn't know this until we'd walked clear over to it from Jackson Square. Being hot and a little tired, we weren't exactly keen on searching for one and got on the Hop On Hop Off buss right there. We really [...]
I admit it. My small project of 6x8 Christmas pages is still unfinished. It's not like it will require me to do a ton of work. But as with many of my projects, I start something and take forever to complete them. I think that's why I'm like 'Go Laura' for getting all these Christmas pages done. Oh how I envy her drive to take on this task. Let's take a look. [ Designs | Merry Everything (Under The Tree, Christmas Morning), Storyboard #2 (photo template), Life Additions: Backgrounds (circle background) What a quick and easy way to crank through some [...]
For my grand road trip journey, I purchased a Midori Traveler’s Notebook. I’d been eyeing them for a few months in anticipation of the trip--wanting a fun recording system, ya know. I loved the idea of the blank pages for a very clean look, but knowing me, I would be bothered by the fact that I didn’t write straight or evenly. Then the ol’ Silhouette lightbulb went off. I could make my own journaling template in the size I needed and spacing that suited me--or suited a different mood of me. That’s how this fun little freebie came to light! [...]

It seems like a lot of people I know have or are doing this lately. What makes the ocean so magical? It must be the relaxing and mesmerizing sound of the waves. Couldn't you just sit there all day basking in the sun as the waves roll along? mmmm…I think I could use a bit of that right now. We're headed to a beach wedding soon. Kind of looking forward to do doing a whole lotta nuttin'. Our Miss Layle recently went to Hawaii. Kauai is on my 'I gotta do this again' list…sometime soon, I hope. I tell ya, [...]

They went super fast the first time….as many of you know ;) So you might not want to wait to get yours this time. Now I gotta go finish getting ready for the tax man. Taxes, oh how I detest thee.
Okay, so a funny thing happened over the past couple days. In church they asked us to pray for moisture because we haven't had any serious snow since Christmas. Maybe just a few flurries and some rain from time to time. February was very spring like. So yesterday it was quite a surprise to get blizzard like conditions--thaaaat lasted for maybe 15 minutes. I guess not enough people prayed so we only got 15 minutes' worth. ;) Dan mentioned he was quite disappointed that he couldn't get a snow shovel out. It looked so promising too. Oh well. Instead we'll make [...]
