I love photography, and as convenient as it may be for almost everyone to have a pretty decent camera in their pocket with the advent of smartphones, it still just doesn’t quite beat using a camera with a few more capabilities.  The downside is carrying around a bigger camera can be a bit of a pain.

Monday Motivation: Embrace The Journey

Embrace the Journey

I recently came across a quote that said, “You may not always end up where you thought you were going, but you will always end up where you were meant to be.”  It got me thinking of just how dramatically my life is not where I thought I was going, and how quickly life changes.  If you had asked me 5 years ago where I would be in 5 years, I would not have said anything about where I currently am.

Fitness Journey Feature

February Favorites Feature 2016

February has come and gone.  Even though it was a day longer than the average February, I feel like the month flew by about twice as fast as usual!  I am still feeling like it was Christmas just yesterday. Continue Reading…

Pesto Recipe Feature

I am not a cook.  I am not a big fan of anything to do with cooking in general, but I also have never been particularly good at it.  On more than one occasion I have had entire batches of cookies melt into one big mess, pour off the sides of the pan, and into the oven.  I am not sure how this is even possible, but I can attest to the fact that it is!
