I was so productive yesterday that I’ve slacked off already today. I’ve really enjoyed waking up early but today I didn’t even come to consciousness until about 10:30am. Haha. Figures. I will say, however, that yesterday was a great day! This is how it started: I got a phone call from a friend telling me…… Continue reading Life List 2010: Frederik Meijer Gardens (CHECK!)
If this was VH1’s “Best Week Ever,” they’d be featuring me. Today, I drove from my hometown to my current town then out to a friend’s cottage. We drifted around on inner tubes, went for a pontoon ride on a pontoon that hauls, swam in the water, ate some delicious food, shared great conversation, enjoyed…… Continue reading Life List 2010: See a Bald Eagle in Nature (CHECK!)
Fact: I feel sexiest when driving in my car, windows down, music up, night air, wind in my hair. I drove from Grand Rapids to my parents’ home today.

It’s worth reviewing. And updating.…… Continue reading My Life in '04
I’ve just returned from a long weekend in Jamaica last night (NBD). The journey started Thursday morning with a flight from Detroit to Atlanta which then connected to Montego Bay, Jamaica. When we arrived (I went as a friend’s date), our shuttle wasn’t present to pick us up so we took a cab with one…… Continue reading It's Jamaica, Mon!
I had forgotten how bittersweet the end of busy season feels. I’ve worked over 30 hours in the past two days but even with the extra hours I’m logging this week, I’ve started to feel a let down of sorts. …It’s funny how we don’t anticipate becoming attached. I’ve spent three and a half months…… Continue reading 8 words to 8 days…
There are few things better than a long, night drive on the highway with the windows down and the heat on to keep the night chill from settling into my bones. I remember the first time I experienced this contrast of temperatures. My dad had leased a sporty, manual, two-seater Honda S2000. It was a summer…… Continue reading Daddy-Daughter Car Rides
