The Sunshine State


Well, we’re here in Fort Lauderdale and well, aside from 595 having an insane amount of construction, Florida is the same. It’s warm in January, all the invasive species are still out and about (Brazilian pepper, melaleuca, Australian pines, iguanas, monk parakeets) and all of the tropical plants make me want to garden like crazy. […]

2011–The Year of Possible???


It took me awhile to come up with my word for the year. 2011 is a year of a fresh, blank book with crisp white pages to be written. The first few chapters have been sketched out, the Florida Trail, but haven’t been written yet. The rest after that are full of possibilities. It’s Misti’s […]

The Pink Mustang


Zoe got a car for Christmas from Santa. We hadn’t seen her drive it yet until yesterday and boy was that fun! She has a radio in the car and her dad told her to dance so she sticks her arm out and does a little funk dance! She’s mastered the part of accelerating but […]

New Year, New Adventure


Some of you already knew but now we’re letting everyone know. A few weeks ago Chris threw out the idea of hiking the Florida Trail this January and February. We would be done with our job and since we figure we’ll still be working with the company we were working with, their projects don’t start […]

2010 in Review


In January: I learned how to use the reverse lens technique for taking macro photos—my newest obsession! I finished Ashleigh’s blanket a mere few days before she arrived. And then the little bit was born at 1lb 1oz on January 21st. Photo from my brother and SIL. It seems like so long ago but yesterday, […]

Book Review and a Cold


Patrice had sent me the Barefoot Sisters Southbound and the companion book Barefoot Sisters Walking Home. They were pretty easy reads once I got going and despite her recommendation to read the northbound first, I decided to go southbound since it was their first book and because that part of the trail was still fresh […]

Snippets of Christmas


Chris and I had four Christmas meals, his mom and step-dad, his dad and step-mom, my parents, and my SIL’s mom and dad’s house. *phew* that was a lot of food! I think I managed not to overeat, though and I did steer clear from some heavy desserts. We did pretty good on presents, too; […]

Misti’s Christmas Top 10


Top 10 Christmas Movies: A Christmas Story: my all time favorite Christmas movie…24 hours of it on TNT is perfect! It’s a Wonderful Life: preferably in black and white Bridget Jones’ Diary: a turkey-curry buffet…need I say more? “The gravy needs sieving!” “Oh, just stir it, Una!” Love Actually: so much love in this movie […]
