Field of Flowers
Published on Sunday, April 26, 2015 by Katherine
Today we learned that sometimes you just have to pull over, sneak in to a farmer’s field and take pictures.

California dreaming is all my daughter has been doing since her best friend moved there more than three years ago. For those three years I have promised her that someday, somehow I would get her across country to see her best friend again.
With my lack of blog posts over the last two week...

1. During the winter I kept hearing that the Corolla shipwreck off of Albacore Street had been uncovered a bit more by the winds. I made sure to v...
Snow in Corolla

You may recall a few of my posts on the Pirate House in our neighborhood. This woman spends a month decorating her yard in a pirate theme for Halloween.
My daughter’s friend lives next door to the Pirate House. Sunday I was dropping her off and had to stop the car, put it in reverse and...

I have always wanted to help people. But you know how it goes. Kids. Work. Life. I assumed the time would come when all the children are out of the house.
As you know, I have begun fostering dogs for an amazing local rescue. I could write a post on its own about dog fostering and just...

Curly haired girls stop other curly haired girls on the street and ask, “What do you use in your hair?” It’s just what we do. All of us have at least $200 worth of hair products shoved under the sink, containing most of their original contents.
Hair stylists aren’t trained to cut ...

Every once in a while I like to share random pictures I have stored on my iPhone. Nothing can reveal one’s true day to day activities like the pictures on a cell phone.

My children have the chance to build a snowman about once every two years. And on the rare occasion we get several inches, all of the guys go out to build a giant snowman.

Which Would You Choose?
Published on Sunday, March 1, 2015 by Katherine
On the way home from a family event this weekend, my middle son challenged us with a thoughtful question. “If you could have the traits of any animal in the world, what animal would it be and why? You would still be you but you could do things the animal does.”
I responded, “I...
