As I was fixing up some of the Creamy Lemon Zinger Sweet Potato Soup a few weeks ago, I realized I hadn’t shared with you one of my favorite pieces of metal in the kitchen and I’m not talking about my Microplane or pizza cutter. A few years ago I was diagnosed anemic and when […]

If you follow me on Facebook or check out my trip reports, you know this is my favorite new place to stop in Darrington, WA after hikes on the Mountain Loop or North Cascades Highway (it’s faster to drive through Darrington than Burlington).  If you ever wondered if there was a good spot to stop […]

It has been a long time since we have gotten out with the kids and not just because I injured myself last summer.  Scheduling is hard when everyone has busy lives and that includes the climbing team for one of the 11 year olds!  It’s easier when children are young and dependent on their parents […]

Never!  We are definitely not fair weather hikers…and we don’t let things like downed trees on the road stop us from our destination! This is a trail off […]

It’s here, 2018!!  I don’t know why we get so excited when December rolls over into January but I’m all for a reason to celebrate and remember that each year (or day) is a time to think fresh and new.  Let’s carry all the good stuff forward and leave the unwanted back in 2017.  And […]

Is It Time For Something Different?

This week definitely did not turn out like I expected it to. I thought I’d be off on a fun vacation right about now, driving along the coast maybe exploring new hikes and eats.  However, life had other plans and I ended up sicker than a dog (like when a dog eats that chocolate covered […]
