Me and my girl

Tweet Away again, this time I’m over in Victoria visiting my parents for the weekend (and picking up Angus and Zoey since they looked after them while I was in California).

Had a blast in California!

Tweet Just a warning: this post is going to be full of photos! I got back from California last night and was so exhausted that I pretty much went right to bed and fell asleep almost immeadiately! So today I’m trying to catch up on emails, unpack, and work on some upcoming classes. The dogs(…)

Family Time

Tweet I’m having some great days with my family over in Victoria right now. It’s so much fun being all together, and we only get these moments once a year. I also got to be a guest instructor at Scrapbook Parade again, I taught a class there yesterday morning – it was so much fun!(…)

Yellowstone National Park – trip report

Tweet We are back from our great Yellowstone adventure! It was most definitely that – an adventure. In a nutshell, the trip went well, but it wouldn’t be a trip of ours without some sort of excitement or mishap.
