Back in the Web

I’ve been gone for a moment or two (in the grand scheme of my internet life) but a few months seems like far too long to go between blog entries! I’m finally connected to the interweb and though my stats may be down, they didn’t disappear. If I dive back in now who knows where 2016 may take me?

In 2015 I moved out of my hometown for the first time (90 miles away) and I plan to see a lot more of the world from now on…

For now, I hope you will enjoy these images I snapped before, during and slightly after my big move to Dubuque!


June Turns to July | Photo Update!

My garden is growing slowly and I’m settling in. There certainly have been roadblocks but I’m not about to give up now. This is the time to finish up all loose ends in Iowa before I start a new adventure.

In the meantime, I’ll be walking in the woods, catching up with friends, saying goodbye.

Just think, by next month I could be living in another state writing about a totally foreign experience. I will be sure to update soon ;)

New Sprouts in a New Place

I moved into a new (temporary) place and have started my traveling garden! I was so busy that I missed blogging last month entirely so I thought I should give you a tiny update. The place is owned by my good friend (and we stole her rhubarb from another friend last year) I will take more photos once I finished getting settled (for now!)

Denver Zoo — Springtime!

I had a blast! Look for a video (coming soon) that shows much more! I highly recommend this zoo: habitats are large, well built, and historical. Large animals are moved around to give them the benefits of habitat sharing. This zoo treats animals very well and is full of great information :)

Off the Rails

Holy moly! My car tried to kill me (blown tire on the highway) then my boss assassinated me (my position that is)

It seems I may end up where I wanted to be sooner than expected. I’m counting on landing the perfect job in Denver! I’m visiting this weekend for my birthday, the last year of my twenties. I have butterflies in my stomach but oddly they aren’t unwelcome. I’m being propelled toward an unknown future and it could be… fantastic!

I Knew It Would Happen Eventually…

I forgot to blog last month! Dang you February, always throwing me off with your shortness. What gives? Anyhow, here I am a few days late with not much new to report. I’ve been working and driving on these crazy winter roads dreaming of my move across the country that will hopefully occur in a few short months!

Here is at least one decent shot I took recently… I NEED a new camera… but that will have to wait until after the move I think…

Mapping my Future

If you wondered what keeps me away from my beloved blog for months at a time as of late… I’m in aerial film scanning and mapping. I enjoy the challenges of my job but want a change. I’ve been thinking of moving for some time and soon it will become a reality! I’ve ventured out of Iowa on trips but never lived abroad or even in another state like I desperately wanted as a teenager.

I’m trying to pin down what to do and where to do it but rest assured, it will be fantastic! Once there I won’t be able to stop the inspiration from flooding into my blog (hopefully!)

I will be moving with my boyfriend in March just before my birthday, the last year of my twenties… Let’s see what I’ll make of it!




Year’s End

Just some words I emailed myself last week while I was supposed to be working. Edited New Year’s Eve. Hope it’s a creative and productive 2015!
Year’s End
I abandon you for the swarms in a mangled mind.
Investing in nothing, just rambling around a broken town.
Don’t remember the exact day, the precise moment
I lost it all. But I’ve been picking up faint recollections
Of how it feels before the last of your vessels explode…
