Drought in a Rainforest

It has now been almost a week since someone's campfire burned out of control and a forest fire began here on the Sunshine Coast. As of the most recent report, the fire is 250 hectares and 40% contained. Sunday morning the wind shifted and we woke to smoke and ashes in the sky all along… Continue reading Drought in a Rainforest


Day 14 – 30 Day Dress Challenge 2014

Grey day here, I'm afraid. That means a sweater. And I was too cold to take a picture without it. The Dress: BCBG from an outlet near LA, about seven years ago. Now that I think about it, this was one of my first dress purchases. I wasn't as much of a dress wearer once… Continue reading Day 14 – 30 Day Dress Challenge 2014

The Light of the World is Here

There is a magic that exists in the form of a snowy day. In that first moment after you wake up and you look out the window to see a world transformed. A world fresh and cleansed. Neither Peter nor I actually had a snow day but we enjoyed our snowy day nonetheless. The schools… Continue reading The Light of the World is Here

Mid-Week Snapshots

Life is busy and full and blessed and hard. Here's a taste of it for me this week. Foggy days on the Coast. Many in a row now. Some afternoons the sun comes out and the fog burns away but it's been lingering for a while now. Sunday evening. Peter went fishing in our front… Continue reading Mid-Week Snapshots
