an australian evening.

It's been a very Australian evening. Last night, I came home to a package from such a sweetheart of a friend, Katrina. It was FILLED with the sweetest Australian goodies. So, tonight, I made myself an affogato.  It's a treat that I would constantly order in Oz that consisted of espresso poured on top of… Continue reading an australian evening.

what was that world i was dreaming of?

Things have been foggy [from the day/nyquil], but oh, so beautiful.  It's like my body told me to slow down, stop being so worried about tomorrow, next week, next month, forever from now. Made me remember a lot of loveliness. Then I heard this song and fell in love again... and thought of my dearest… Continue reading what was that world i was dreaming of?

where i’ve been for the last week…

Rafting the Middle Fork of the Salmon River was [hands down] one of the most amazing experiences of my life. Words trying to spell out the laughs, scares, beauty, realizations, breathlessness... would fall short. So, in hopes, here are some photos to explain... [in almost completely random order...] [a week for the books. a time… Continue reading where i’ve been for the last week…

act your age or care.

[wull hallo.] I hope you're doing well. I'm doing pretty awesome. "Oh, why?" you ask... from across the room... wondering why I'm dancing like that.  [the happy burst that comes from deep within... spurred by the simplest thing.] "Because I got a plant in the mail today... A plant that lives in a dinosaur." HUGE… Continue reading act your age or care.

it’s common courtesy.

Some Friday hilarity to start your weekend off right... Back Story:  My friend, Anna Davis, is a CPA.  Truth: https://rachellaurenmarie.wordpress.com/2010/06/24/2049/  She is way talented.  Her sister, Gretchen Davis, is effing hilarious. Come to find, Anna got herself an INTERN.  And this is comical because Anna works from home.  I informed Gretchen of the new intern… Continue reading it’s common courtesy.

the whole damn year.

I'm usually all about celebrating my birthday for a whole week.  Proclaiming that it's "MY BIRTHDAY WEEK!  We're gonna BBQ/eat at Trio/go rafting/watch movies/etc. etc... cuz it's MY BIRTHDAY WEEK!" But this year, I didn't really want to.  Didn't want to make a fuss.  Didn't want the hoopla.  I'm getting older, it's okay that there… Continue reading the whole damn year.

thankfulness in celebrating.

A great night of friends and laughs and cheese conies and then the news of Osama Bin Laden.  Talking, eating, discussing, laughing, eating more. Then, driving home, a message from a friend who had left earlier. - Hey, I was just listening to the news about Bin Laden.  It's just crazy to remember sitting in… Continue reading thankfulness in celebrating.

A couple nights ago, I helped out at Locavore's Night Out.  It was an event by local food providers and it was just ah-mazing.  [some of the best food of my life.] But it was over the hill [in Idaho], which means that all the beautiful parents and their beautiful children come out of the… Continue reading good flushers.
