#1: Travel to Another Timezone

As I write this, I sit in the airport - in Chicago. Therefore - I have officially traveled to another timezone. Granted, I'm in the airport; and can't even see the Chicago skyline - but I can check off number one on my #thirtybeforethirty list! Snapped this shot walking into the Albany Airport back home...… Continue reading #1: Travel to Another Timezone

California Bound…

Oh y'all. In just a few days... I'm hopping on a flight to the great state of California.  I can not even believe that this is happening (considering I've never left the EST time zone). So what does one do when a trip is coming.  She makes lists in her bullet journal. And she shares… Continue reading California Bound…


Photoshoot: Naomi (3 Yr.)

Sometimes I wonder if my nieces will be the only people I ever photograph... If it is, I'm really okay, cause their just darn cute... This little gem is turning THREE! YIKES... and what better way to celebrate than pretty dress and a fun photoshoot with your sisters. Here's some of my favorite shots:  … Continue reading Photoshoot: Naomi (3 Yr.)


#12 – Read One Book a Week or 52 Books (#ThirtyBeforeThirty) – Part 1

Okay, so... 52 books (for me) isn't exactly a challenge, and I should probably state that this started September 1, 2017 - not January 1, 2018. I have now made it halfway to my goal of 52 books for the "year" (or one book a week).  Clearly I read too much for my own good.… Continue reading #12 – Read One Book a Week or 52 Books (#ThirtyBeforeThirty) – Part 1


Photoshoot: Lydia (Newborn)

Every time I take photos of my nieces I have these grand intentions of how they will turn out.  You'd think I'd know by now that what I set out to do, always doesn't happen.  Sometimes its a major fail, sometimes its a success - but in a completely different way then I imagined. You'll… Continue reading Photoshoot: Lydia (Newborn)

How I Chose My Word of 2018

Last post, I shared my word of the year. RENEW I came across Design Your Destiny from Sublime Reflection in one of the bullet journal groups on Facebook I frequent. This is a great (free) tool for setting goals for a new year. In the course (or just follow the workbook prompts), you'll review 2017… Continue reading How I Chose My Word of 2018

Look Inside My Bullet Journal (#7)

This is by far my favorite journal (I've said that before... I know...) But come on... it was ROSE GOLD! (well... technically copper - but close enough). Here are some of my favorite spreads (from my favorite journal.) Can you tell my hand lettering skills are IMPROVING??? I tried my hand at a little stamping… Continue reading Look Inside My Bullet Journal (#7)

Events & Parties

Creating Sherlock Holmes

Oh y'all I LOVE planning events! And this one was no exception! November 3, 2017 I yet again, took on the auction at MCA with a theme I was super excited about SHERLOCK HOLMES.  Each year I think to myself through the entire planning process, "can I beat last year?" Well... I'll let you be… Continue reading Creating Sherlock Holmes

Bike Riding By the Hudson

This was an exceptionally warm Columbus Day Weekend, which for me was a little bit of a bummer, I really like fall camping, and it just wasn't the same without sweatshirts & even mittens and hats.  But we made the best of it and had some extra summer fun with a bike ride. October 8,… Continue reading Bike Riding By the Hudson
