Free Writing

This is free writing… no travel pics, tips or ideas this time.   Today I spent a small portion trying to clear my head, my head has been swimming and spinning  with all that’s occupying it’s attention. My big issue now is that I have been given some opportunities and in reflect on these opportunities I realized that i’m burned out. … Continue reading

Expectations of Deployment

Now that we’ve had our homecoming, a huge weight is lifted and we can reflect on the past number of months.   In the beginning of deployment, I, along with the other gals of hearts apart, made a “dream board” based on what we wanted to accomplish during the deployment. My board was as follows: … Continue reading

we are restricted to weekends.

So you may have noticed, I am getting behind on posts. Obviously school has started and is taking its toll on our free spirits.

The question arose… are these kids trying to kill me? Well, they … Continue reading

While we were in Charlottesville I contacted a photographer I had the pleasure to work with on her vintage inspired series last summer. … Continue reading

Staying busy but not with travels.

I have named May “money saving May”. So with gas prices being the way they are and me being the way that I am, I have cut out most travel and restaurants. Obviously this excludes the occasional mini strawberry milk shake from Sonic. It seems that I read there is a kazoo factory in town … Continue reading

Not Just Literally

I feel like i’ve created a few hundred blogs (3 or 4) but they all fail…  I don’t update often. I feel like when starting a blog you are forced to pick a theme or something along the lines that you will always talk about, like the title of your blog must be directly connected … Continue reading
