The Canadian has Arrived

Hi Friends! If you’ve been with me for a while, you know that I went to Peru last May (and it was [Inca]redible – see what I did there?) and while there met some really cool people. Then in July, I went to visit one of the said people and in the process went to [...]

Visiting the Nug

As you all know, about three-ish weeks ago, the kid brother graduated from college. (If you didn’t know, I blogged about it here.) He moved home the day after graduation and then the day after that he moved to Tennessee. It was a wild ride that I was extraordinarily glad I wasn’t on. He handled [...]

Of Nature Walks, Part 2

Hi Guys! I hope you had a great week this week.  I did, for sure.  The weather here in NC has been absolutely incredible.  I’m talking mid-60s to almost 80 degrees (that’s Fahrenheit for all my non-American friends) and partly cloudy with these glorious breezes that have made it almost impossible to not keep every [...]

The alphabet [...]

Of Nature Walks and Waffles

Happy Halloween! Bex… It’s September. EXACTLY.  September means Fall and Fall means Halloween.  Halloween isn’t just ONE DAY- it’s a feeling.  And I’ve got it. What I’m trying to say is that Fall is here.  I can feel it.  The smell is in the air, the weather is becoming the trademark NC fall beauty that [...]

Hanging out at Hanging Rock

I think one of the things I love most about NC is all of the natural variety we have here.  I can drive a few hours east or west and reach beautiful beaches or majestic mountains.  This week, my friend Teddy and I took a short trip a couple hours north of Charlotte to Hanging [...]
