Cheap Thrills

I am about to develop a new hobby.  Race Stalking.  Intrigued?  You should be. 

It's also known as the Ultimate Free Way to Entertain Kids For An Extended Period of Time.  That's a mouthful, so I'll just go with Race Stalking.

 Here's how you do it.  Check your local…

Photo Walk: The Waterfall

My journey into photography classes has come to an end.  Two straight months of assignments became a bit grueling, and I will admit I flaked a bit on the last week.  The final assignment, a sort of culmination of all that I have learned, was to take a photo walk and capture the moments and surroundings.  Exhausted, overwhelmed by switching to WordPress, and frustrated or not, I knew I had to make time for that one.  A tribute to my…

My Mother's Day

My Mother's Day this year was really wonderful, from beginning to end.  Even when I decided I would do the anti-Mother's Day thing and force my husband to join me in cleaning our downstairs from top to bottom at 8:30 at night; isn't Mother's Day all about not cleaning?  Well, since I never clean, I guess I just thought Mother's Day must be about Opposites Day or something.  JDubbs was a good sport about it, though, even if it was…

Ten Minutes

You know you're a crazy photographer when you stumble upon deserted railroad tracks and drag your family out there for an impromptu photoshoot.

How We Roll

Although spring officially sprung a while ago, we still get flurries that accumulate on top of our mud and melting snow.  Overall, it's still a fairly wintery world out there in Vermont, although the temperatures are rising.  It's been warm enough to bring our kids outside, but there's nowhere to bring them!  Anywhere that is plowed is a parking lot or other potential hazard.  Anywhere that isn't knee-deep in snow is ankle-deep in mud.  But the sun is smiling its yellowy…

Joy of Luck #7: My Rainbows

Today is the last Joy of Luck assignment, and it ends on a high note.  We are to consider (and photograph) our own personal rainbow, in a metaphorical sense.  What will bring me luck in the future?  What blessings do I have to look forward to?  That one was pretty easy for me, since my family is such a blessing and I can only consider myself lucky for having the people and babies in my life that I…

This weekend I was initiated into Vermonterhood.  I did something that every true blue Vermonter considers just another day, yet I had never done it before.  Our family, plus Nana and Papa and some friends of theirs, went to a sugar house and tried some fresh maple syrup, literally fresh out of the tap.

We're defrosting up here in the extreme northeast.  Up here in the boondocks.  We are quickly approaching the fifth season of the year.  Oh?  You thought there were only four seasons?  Oh, right.  You must live somewhere other than Vermont.  I use to think there was only four, too.


Welcome to Mud Season.

Snow Day

Follow my blog "Rub Some Dirt On It" at


Monday was an unexpected snow day.  After a weekend of rain and temperatures reminiscent of spring, winter came back to rear its very ugly head.  So ugly it destroyed our grill with one gigantic piece of ice leaping off the roof onto our deck.  (Must have done something to do deserve that kind of karma, Grillmaster…

While having spring fever seems to be all I talk about lately, there is also another recurring theme to our winter days:  Jax wanting to be just like Daddy.  Whether it is shoveling snow or fixing an outlet, Jax is right there to shine his flashligh or offer a…

I used to live in San Diego, California, quite possibly one of the most beautiful places in the world and without question the most beautiful place I have ever lived.  My life then was lazy and chaotic, rocking Uggs and flip flops, exploring mountains and deserts and beaches.  But the most central part of my casual life in SoCal…

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
