Day at Disney

Seriously, I LOVE Disney….not as much as I love the two handsome guys above, but, truly, I LOVE it A LOT!!! (and I might add, that I don’t even pretend to understand those who don’t…I mean what’s wrong with having some fun with our imaginations – we ALL can use that!) So, during this past […]

This Thanksgiving, Pops, myself and the whole crew went to Yosemite for a few days. Needless to say the views were amazing – I simply LOVE this park! The days were cool – with a nice chill in the air! The air was super clear – making for a great time to snap some photos! […]

Fall Visit to Lake Tahoe

Last week, Pops & I went up to Tahoe for a quick Fall visit. Pops had purchased one of those special 2 night hotel deals on TravelZoo for a nice little lakeview room on the South shore. The weather was chilly, but the sun was shining and the days were gorgeous. As you look down […]

Biking Fun in San Francisco

So, lately I’ve been a little bit obsessed with cycling. Well, maybe not a little bit…but rather a big bit! Years ago, Pops and I used to ride a tandem together – ride a whole lot actually – as in over 1,000 miles one year. We also took a bike tour and rode across Italy […]

Sharing the Fun!

  As you may have noticed, this week I was gone and away from my computer a lot! You see, our anniversary falls every year over the President’s Day weekend, so we always have a bit of extra time off that we like to spend together. We actually picked this date to get married based […]

Sorry, I’ve been a bit MIA lately. It’s been a bit hectic around here so far this month and I don’t see that changing anytime soon. Gotta love the holidays! Last weekend my good friend Nia celebrated her 50th birthday. She celebrated this amazing milestone as only Nia could…with a lot of fun and with […]

Yes, I spotted an Elf!

I’m hoping everyone had a fabulous Thanksgiving! Truthfully, I’m still enjoying my Tofurky-Day time off as my mom is here visiting for a couple more days. Just to be sure you didn’t think I wasn’t posting because of some food coma injury, I thought I’d check in and post PROOF that the holidays have really […]

We’re away from home right now. Visiting one of our “happy” places the Ranch. Usually there are a lot more people here when we are here, and I’m busy socializing, visiting and catching up with them. Today, however, I found myself alone (except for Bubba) for quite a few hours. Free! When I never feel […]

Oh how I love Monterey! Luckily, it’s less than an hours drive from my home. There are actually so many gorgeous places  – all different and unique – within an hour or two of my home. I feel so lucky and also always wonder why I don’t visit them more often. I suspect that work […]

As expected, it’s just glorious up here in Lake Tahoe. We’re staying in Incline Village for 5 days with our good friends Greg and Dianna. There is still quite a bit of snow up on the mountaintops making almost every view simply gorgeous. The crisp, clean air just makes the colors seem much more vivid […]

I have a feeling we’re going to be making quite a few trips to the beach this summer if we’ll have as much fun as we had this past weekend. Here in Northern California the weather at the coast can be hit or miss in the summertime – you can have a gorgeous sunny day […]

Happy Super Bowl Sunday!! Though the “big” fun we had this weekend had nothing to do with watching the big game, I hope all of you are having fun cheering for your favorite team – hopefully with a big crew of friends and lots of high calorie snacks. Our “big” fun this weekend was heading […]

Ranch Protea Garden

Here, at the Ranch, our friend Larry has a parcel that has been in his family since the early 70s. His Uncle, after visiting the Blue Mountains in Australia and seeing the beautiful protea plants growing there, decided the climate at this Ranch parcel was similar. Larry’s uncle, after returning from Australia, began an incredible […]

After our recent trip to Yosemite, and on our way up to visit friends in Reno, Pops and I stopped in the ghost town Bodie. I have wanted to visit Bodie for years. Not just because it’s said to be a ghost town, but also because I saw some amazing photographs of the town taken […]

On our road trip last week, after Yosemite, one of our stops was Mono Lake. This lake was believed to have formed at least 760,000 years ago. To me, one of the best parts of visiting Mono Lake was seeing the Tufas (calcium-carbonate spires and knobs formed by interaction of freshwater springs and alkaline lake […]
