After Shigatse, we traveled 475 km to the Nepalese border. Here are our travel accounts after we found internet in Katmandu. These are long and our unedited thoughts–as a warning. The road we talk about is actually called the “Frienship Highway” which is quite ironic considering what’s it’s like. Since we travled most of it [...]
As the archived blog post mentioned, we took a bus from Samye to Shigatse, Tibet. Here are some photos of that first night we wandered around after finding a hostel. The sun cast warm light (and just warmth) on the city as we walked around. The second the sun dipped behind the mountains, it was [...]
Five years ago, I was traveling in Tibet with Mike, my sister-in-law, Lucy, and friend Jason. On the 20th, we made our way from Llasa to Samye to visit the first Buddhist monastery built in Tibet. As we traveled those 3 months I tried to update my personal blog when we had internet as a way to [...]
My back up can’t back up because my hard drive is full…of pictures! Thousands of them. Of course, as I opened folders to cull, I got sucked in. Yet, I never look at them and certainly don’t get them printed and hung. Many of them aren’t great pictures but are memories that I have a [...]
The summer light is perfect for wee family photos and I wanted to capture Mike with his kids on this Father’s Day 2012. I am glad that I did; they are a gorgeous set of people, my people.

Remember the ad for Reeses Pieces in the 90’s where they poked a perfect hole in the middle? Nearly every day after school in the 5th grade, I went to the Barnard General Store, 50 cents in hand, and got myself a pack. Turns out, it isn’t that tricky to do, but I got hooked [...]
My candle burns at both ends
It will not last the night;
But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends -
It gives a lovely light.

The other day one of my dear dear friends sent me these words and they have been speaking to me ever since.
I haven’t created anything for creation’s sake in a [...]
As a designer, I get a lot of inspiration from the incredibly vast blogosphere . Right when I think there can’t possibly be another beautiful design/lifestyle blog, I find 10. No joke. It kind of amazes me and sucks me in deep with all the pretty pictures and perfectly simple DIY tutorials. I start to [...]
Oh hi there. No, I didn’t abandon this site. It’s just we added this little red head to our family and the last 2 months we’ve been figuring out how to keep a newborn and a toddler alive. So far so good and I think I am finally adjusted back to the constant fatigue.
I have [...]
You know those people that come into your life that are remarkable?
I just got word that one of my absolute favorite people passed away last week. Rick Wells was my American Studies and Art History professor at University. After I took my first class from him and he used, “Moulin Rouge” in a lecture about [...]
I can’t believe the fireworks were already a week ago. Where are you going summer? I didn’t have a tripod so went for the handheld shaky shots. I actually think I might get them printed to hang in my lounge

Our 250 Project is gearing up for an exciting launch this next weekend. These are a couple of the BIG copies we did over at Fedex and put in some store windows here in town. Now, we are tweeking the e-book, final photo edits, and planning out the installation show.

I am one of those annoyingly lucky people to have married into a super cool family
Mike and I are eventually going to re-do the house that we tore apart 3 years ago when we bought (pre-recession). And that one day when we do re-do it, if we have any moola left to decorate, I would like a Sonya Winner rug. Well, maybe not one of hers because her rugs are signed [...]
Yesterday we got a glimpse of the 23 week old little chiquita. I haven’t intentionally hidden the fact that I have a half-cooked bun in the oven but I was sick and it was winter before we left for 7 weeks in New Zealand and now it is lovely and there is no hiding [...]
