You'd probably never know it existed. I love t...

As the housing market heats up, I'm reminded:   A House is a Home.   I grew up in the Earlington neighborhood of Renton, Washington. I have many memories from those days, some great, some not. I remember playing hide and go seek, kick the can, olly olly oxen free, and exploring the woods across t...

I'm continually amazed how we find connection online. As a blogger who's posted local content for years I've had numerous occasions where people (I know or not) found a post of mine and followed up to contact me. More so than anything I write about, it's the local conversations, especially those ...

Be yourself, everyone else is already taken. ~ Oscar Wilde I know I’m not the biggest “thing” online. That’s not my aim. Though I am here, there, and kinda everywhere. It totally works for me.

Wine and painting....how, when and why this new trend started I have no idea, but suffice to say it's a blast!

One morning back in 2011 I was enjoying a morning coffee on the deck at my condo and thinking about how far I’ve come with my training. I’m first to admit it was a long and sometimes arduous journey. I certainly had my moments and there were times I felt like a total failure and an idiot. On more...
