My Mom Turned 58 and Started a Travel Blog!

Tuesday, August 12, 2014

Can you believe this lady is 58 years old?!

Today is an exciting day! It is my mom's birthday, and I get to celebrate her in blog world, because... she recently launched a blog of her own! Give me a moment to gush, will you?

My mom is all things that moms are: nurturing, maternal, diplomatic, and compassionate -- but she is so much more than just a family woman! She is a creative, a bookworm, an avid traveler/tour guide/travel agent, an animal lover, a fashionista, a coffee lover, and a writer. Now that she has retired from her "day job" of many years, she has more time to spend time with family and invest in the things she loves. She's sharing it in her new life and travel blog, Life is a Highway. You'll find travel deals, vacation tips, and personal stories.

Pay her a visit, and wish her a happy birthday. She's pretty fantastic! Although blogging has felt like my thing for the last couple of years, I couldn't be more excited for her to jump in and fall in love with it the way I have.

Happy birthday, Mom, and welcome to the blog world!


Where I've Been (Which is Nowhere, Really)

Monday, August 11, 2014

Consider this my very loose explanation of where I've been (which is nowhere but work and home, really). This is my timid re-entry to the blog with the hopes that I still have some blog friends out there. Forgive my absence? :) Here is my life lately in photos (from my new-ish camera!) in no particular order. I apologize in advance for the cat overload, but they're so damn pretty, and they're the only living subjects that are at home lately. (Insert usual complaint about Husband's travel schedule for work here.) I can't help it.












So hello! What's new? Happy Monday!
