In every job that must be done, there is an element of fun. You find the fun and SNAP–the job’s a game! Also deadlines make a job rather fun, too…or at least, it adds a certain challenge to the whole thing. I have a deadline, and that deadline is August 4. That’s the day my […]

It’s about that time of year again: time for a recap of the past year! This is always so fun. I love remembering what momentous things happened and thinking about how I’ve changed over a year.

All pictures taken by me unless otherwise noted.} On our first Sunday in England, I was one very excited girl: I was getting ready to see my friend Victoria and finally meet her friends and companions Margaret and Galen!

{September 20-21, 2013. All pictures taken by me unless otherwise noted.} Our first Friday in England was our first cloudless day–gorgeous! And our first stop was to the Churchill War Rooms, the original underground bunker used by the valiant Prime Minister and his staff during World War II. This was a real highlight of our […]

“Sacre bleu, she has emerged!” or so Lumiere says in Beauty and the Beast. Seriously, it seems much longer than a week since I last blogged–mainly due to the fact that I have been very ill, first with a nasty cold, then with common jet-lag, and now with a stomach virus. Blech. Praise the Lord, I’m feeling […]
