November 2017 Was cleaning off my phone and there are so many fun memories with Erin before she moved to Prague. Here we are in newspaper dresses for Flagpole Magazine’s 30th Birthday Variety Show. I think our styles sum us up well. Erin is carefree and confident; she always finishes what she starts. I get […]
It feels like fall is in its last gasp ahead of a gloomy winter. Even with the naked trees, it is a gorgeous (sorry-not-sorry) view walking the rim right after sunrise (I still haven’t made it down to the gorge floor, one day!).
September 2020 This 27-ton boulder was once able to move if someone pressed it, but it no longer shakes. There’s a trail through the park and what appears to be an active bouldering group, but I think you mostly go to see these granite outcroppings.

Gibbs Garden is one of the most beautiful places on earth. Jessica and I first visited back in February to see millions of daffodils glowing in the sun.

I would NOT have enjoyed taking this shit on solo! It is a very steep, boulder-filled forest trail, lots of […]
Beautiful in every season!

I am so glad to live in a town that loves Halloween as much as I do! Of course, this was a quiet, pandemic Halloween but I love how many houses/yard decorated for the holiday, encouraged by Flagpole’s decorated yard contest. These were my favorites on Boo-levard James n Jen posing in front of Alicia […]
