What Is Kwanzaa?

All about Kwanzaa

Do you have any idea what Kwanzaa is? I have always been interested in other cultures and traditions, which is one of the reasons  I studied humanities in college. I love to see what brings people joy, reverence, reflections, sorrow, nostalgia, and elation. December is a month that typically focuses on Christmas, and on Hanukkah to […]


Wordless Wednesday: Happy Thanksgiving…Tomorrow

Happy Thanksgiving

Tender Tennessee Christmas?

Since Taylor has been with his airline, he’s had relatively good luck with having holidays off. Sometimes he’ll miss an “eve” but make it for the “day,” or part of the accompanying weekend.

And the sweet rolls. And the pumpkin pie. And the best part? My skinny pants still fit the morning after! Hope all of […]

His solitary journey brought […]

We completely missed the opening act, but we’d never heard of the band either. When we walked in, they upgraded our seats from first row balcony to lower […]

Happy St Patricks Day!

What to pack?

Earlier this month, I posted about my intended gypsy lifestyle for the remainder of the month. I will be leaving Detroit today, and will not return until December 28/29, depending on flight loads. Above is a picture of (a new version of my) trusty silver suitcase. It has traveled with me for over 40,000 flight […]
