My father was a great joke teller. His specialty? Shaggy dog stories.
I thought I had heard most of his jokes. Until last weekend when my mother alluded to one of his jokes that didn’t ring a bell. (Those of you who are well versed in shaggy dog stories will catch that little gem I ju...

Every Sunday while driving away from Corolla I think back on all the adventures we had over a short day and a half. Not once do I take any moment for granted. Here is a bit of this past weekend in pictures.
Now that my kids are old enough to say, “Don’t take my picture!” I am forced...

Or should I say… “my hurricane vacation?” Because my family vacation had a hurricane tucked in it. Let me share the following quote:

At least if you are me. Because my hair is STUPID. Course. Curly. Thick. Dry.
For curly haired girls like me, it is ALL ABOUT THE PRODUCT.

Leaving Corolla after two trips to the beach had my daughter and I parched. I treated myself to a skinny Oprah iced chai, while she was craving a “coke no ice.” It was the weekend, so why not?
The only place nearby with soda was McDonalds. I don’t think I have been to a McDonald�...

Sometimes the innocent find themselves victims of a crime in the most unexpected of places. In the very places where they expect the most safety… the most privacy. One minute they are going about their business and the next…..? Victims of a tragic and horrific crime.
Yesterday I beg...

The Long Lonely Ride
Published on Wednesday, May 28, 2014 by Katherine
You can call me Queen of the Tide, if you like. Because that is what I have been for the last few weeks. I knew it was coming to this… I just didn’t know when. For this month, much to my dismay, my first minivan died and I now have to take the light rail.
In the meantime, my good frie...

My Corolla mornings begin far too early, thanks to my over excited, “Let’s go to the beach!” dog. What seems like only hours after I have gone to bed, Moon is waking me up for his morning walk.
Despite my wish for more sleep, our mornings are one of my great joys. Off season, I am a...
