The Road Goes On Forever

The Road Goes On Forever

Summer makes me think of roadtrips. Perhaps this is because when we were younger we took a lot of roadtrips as part of our summer travels–driving from Toronto to Maine or Toronto to Pennsylvania, from Dallas to Florida or Arizona or California or Utah. Even as an adult roadtrips have been a main part of my travels with Scott. You’ve probably heard me say that I fell in love with Scott in the car and […]

Ireland 2012 – Part 1

Ireland 2012 – Part 1

In October of last year, Scott and I took a trip to Ireland as a part of a package deal that I found via Travelzoo–they send out weekly emails with deal all over the world and while I was looking for a cruise, I couldn’t pass up this particular deal as part of SceptreTours. We flew to Dublin on a Saturday from Dallas (via Orlando) and arrived Sunday morning. The package included hotels in four […]

Arkansas Motorcycling Take Two

Arkansas Motorcycling Take Two

Oh you guys. I was so disappointed when I looked through my pictures from our bike trip last weekend and realized I only had a handful of shots to share (besides the helmet head shot you already saw). I guess that’s the downside of taking an SLR while riding on a motorcycle through the Ozark Mountains. So many times I gasped in awe of the beauty surrounding me but trying to find a place to […]

Sturgis Bike Week 2010

Sturgis Bike Week 2010

Yes, the title is correct…2010. If you are a motorcycle enthusiast or know one or live in South Dakota or anywhere in the central midwest or just keep track of random events, you might know that last week (August 8-13) was the Black Hills Motorcycle Rally in Sturgis, South Dakota. I didn’t make it out this year (obvio). Scott and my in-laws attempted to head out there but turned around at 3 am after encountering mechanical […]

Memorial Day Fun in the Sun

Memorial Day Fun in the Sun

Scott and I took every advantage of the sun over Memorial Day weekend to head down to my dad’s lakehouse for a few days. I’ve been itching to get out of the house for more than two hours and it was wonderful to have so many extra hands with Elle over the weekend. Plus the view was pretty darn sweet. Elle did fairly well. The first night was a bit rough, and I think it […]

Valentine’s Day Memory – When Things Don’t Go As Planned

Valentine’s Day Memory – When Things Don’t Go As Planned

There are times in life when things don’t go as planned. And it’s easy to throw up your hands and get upset, to write off the event as a failure or begrudge that your plans were derailed. On the other hand, sometimes those moments somehow end up being the most cherished moments in life. My first Valentine’s day with Scott was an absolute disaster. For Valentine’s Day 2004 we planned to spend the weekend at […]

Arkansas from the Back of a Bike

Arkansas from the Back of a Bike

Remember how a month and a half ago Scott and I took our first long-distance motorcycle trip?  And I’m just now getting around to blogging about it?  We’re starting to talk more seriously about our upcoming trip to Sturgis, so in the spirit of motorcycle riding, here’s our trip to Arkansas: Bright and early Friday morning we hopped on the bike (don’t let the photo fool you, we were wearing helmets the whole time), and […]

Arizona and February Miscellany

Arizona and February Miscellany

HOW is this year already a sixth of the way over? All of these things that I want to get done and it seems like every day goes by faster and faster. I still haven’t completely unpacked all my boxes. I promise once the house is clean and somewhat orderly I’ll post some pictures. We’re loving the house and are feeling really settled, but man does time fly! February was a great month. We traveled […]

South Dakota/Yellowstone August 2009

South Dakota/Yellowstone August 2009

ROAD TRIP AUGUST 2009South Dakota / Yellowstone, Wyoming Scott and I have been talking about going to Yellowstone for several months, but I always figured it would be one of those things that we talked about but never did–kind of like Europe (hint hint). I also knew that I wanted to go to Mount Rushmore and The Badlands, but all of those things are so far away and not really on the way to anything. […]

Hawaii – March 2009

Hawaii – March 2009

HAWAII – Oahu Scott and I had been tinkering with the idea of another vacation lately–debating the merits of heading toward a resort in Hawaii or opting for another cruise (we love cruising). When Scott emailed me one afternoon at work and said, Let’s go to Hawaii, I said YES and the trip was booked that night. We visited the island of Oahu for a week and had an amazing time. I do have to […]
