Totally Into Tucson

I tried to escape the chill of winter by going to the desert. The week I picked was the coldest in Tucson, Arizona in some 30 odd years but that did not dampen my excitement or experience, it just meant more layers. The Sonora desert, full of towering indigenous Saguaro cactuses, pronounced so-roar-a, is endlessly […]

Zero Proof Cocktails Anyone?

I am working toward my itsy bitsy teenie weenie yellow polka dot bikini bod. No, who am I kidding, I’m working toward my, let’s not look like a breaching yellow submarine in a one-piece bod! And I’ve realized there are certain things that I just can’t give up or cut back on, namely the piping […]

If you have not heard, the city of Atlanta has embarked on a massive, in-town, transportation and economic re-development project called the Atlanta BeltLine. By paving over the old railroad tracks that circle the city, the vision is to create a 22-mile loop of trails and parks, linking 45 neighborhoods. The corridor is designed to […]

Gone too young

When children are young, parents are the primary teachers. As they grow up and become adults (even young adults), life is the primary teacher and our role as parents shifts more to cheerleader, sounding board, and bank. It is so tough to not be able to put a band-aid on a hurt and distract them […]
