WHO was the coolest guy on the beach last weekend?
If you have ever read "Harpo Speaks," you may remember two rules Harpo had for his children:
"If you have an impulse to do something that you’re not sure is right, go ahead and do it. Take a chance. Chances are, if you don...
Take Your Flipflops Off
Published on Wednesday, July 15, 2015 by Katherine
As I write this, I hope my story will encourage you to take chances. Don’t keep yourself from doing something that may or may not turn out. Push yourself. Take a chance. And always take off your flip flops when running in the rain. Let me explain.
Last week was our family week at our ...

Sharks On Outer Banks Minds
Published on Thursday, June 18, 2015 by Katherine
Hello everyone! For the summer I am going to switch from my lofty “post two times a week” goal to every Thursday. So here I am!
You might have seen all the recent stories about sharks in North Carolina and Virginia waters. Two children were attacked on the same beach last week North C...
What Have You Seen On Google Maps?
Published on Thursday, June 11, 2015 by Katherine
I recently listened to an audio book called, "Trust Your Eyes" in which a man sees what appears to be a snapshot of a murder on something similar to Google's Street View. I have seen posts on Facebook pointing out things Google has captured, but have never found something on my own.

This is something I can’t do myself right now for several reasons. Not completely, at least. Between work and criticism around me I have to fit in molds that don’t quite feel right. One day I will be able to finally be who I really am. I’ll be the old woman with the pink hair, TRUST ...

This month's photo challenge subject was Spring!
1. Spring has sprung and things are growing, including this single mushroom perched in our front yard.
2. Spring means osprey diving for their food. This osprey caught a beautiful fish! Thank you Babs, for making this picture so mu...

When Your Brother Is In Need
Published on Thursday, May 14, 2015 by Katherine
Some moments happen so fast you just can’t get them on film. And that’s OK. Because the story of today’s special moment will be passed down through many generations to come.
This afternoon my oldest called from his bathroom, “Mom! Will you ask Mike to get me some TP?” Like the g...

Whether we have been gone for an hour or a day, my daughter and I are always greeted as if we’ve been gone a year. Coming home never gets old!
The camera was vertical rather than horizontal and I apologize for that. But when you are attempting to get in a door with this going on, "i...
Do Dogs Go To Heaven?
Published on Monday, May 4, 2015 by Katherine
In my world, dogs go to heaven. But in others? Apparently not so much.
On the way to Corolla, my daughter told me about a lesson that had upset her recently. An authority figure in our church explained that animals do not have souls and therefore do not go to heaven. If it is in the Bib...
