First, thank you for your kind words and understanding about my mom. The internet is a pretty wonderful place, sometimes. Now on to Mexico! We try to take one big trip a year, around our anniversary. It’s a great excuse to get away from everything and celebrate. This year we went to Mexico. Usually we [...]

I Will Remember

July 2, 2012

(portland, or) This is one of those posts that I’ve typed and deleted at least 10 times over the last week. My mom passed away from bladder cancer last Monday, June 25. Typing that makes it feel more real, so maybe that is part of the reason why I’ve found it so hard to do. [...]

Above is our attempt to bring Christmas cheer to our little rental. We couldn’t squeeze a tree in so instead we strung up lights across our bookshelf and bought a tiny plastic table tree. One of our friends gifted us a wreath so we still have that piney smell I love so much. This is [...]

Out & About

December 14, 2011

Although I lived a stone’s throw from the trail entrance for years (9, to be exact), it wasn’t until this past weekend that I made the hike up to the top of Diamond Head. I’m really not sure why it took me so long. Just one of those things that got pushed back for “one [...]

A beginning of sorts

December 12, 2011

Hello there. Welcome to foodie. For those who have followed me here from my other blog you will know this isn’t really a beginning, but rather a fresh start. This past year I fell out of the habit of writing. I didn’t know what to write about, so I stopped. When I tried to start [...]
