My husband and I are adapting to an empty nest. To help ease back into being unencumbered adults we spent the past weekend in New Orleans. Check out what we did during our brief get away… Continue reading “Walking to New Orleans…”

It’s all about the roadside attractions

I’ll be doing a lot of travel this summer to help parents and children get resettled.  While these trips are primarily for business involving the ones I love, I plan on making time for a few fun side trips too.  These places are high on my ‘must see’ list:

How about you? Are you planning any fun travel this summer?  Any tourist attractions or restaurants/bars you can recommend in Indy, Dauphin Island, Atlantic City, or Stone Mountain?  Let me know…

Last week I posted outfits that I planned on wearing during a quick trip to Mobile.  Have you ever been?  It was the first time I did more than drive thru on the way to the Panhandle beaches and I was pleasantly surprised by what I discovered…

Refreshingly old – and new – signs

Many of my cherished family stories and personal memories involve cars.  I’ve been a road dog since before I was born.  Give me a steady stream of rocking tunes, some icy coca-cola, and a tankful of gas and I can drive for hours with no destination in mind.  This past Sunday I headed east and stumbled upon Lebanon…… Continue reading “Riding along in my automobile…”

It’s gonna be a funky new year…

After the Hunt William Harnett
After the Hunt (William Michael Harnett) 1885

I am not a big one for making New Year’s resolutions.  Instead, I’m all about seeking inspiration through books, movies, fashion, travel, and art.  I started off 2016 at the Philadelphia Museum of Art to view the Audubon to Warhol: The Art of American Still Life exhibition.  I’m still confused by the ‘modern’ selections but the pieces from the 1700 and 1800’s were breathtaking.  I was so excited by the art that I have taken my paints and papers out of storage and am attempting a few still lives of my own.  How about you?  Do you make resolutions?  I’d love to hear what you have in store for 2016…
