happy birthday, elliot

happy birthday elliot. i cannot believe my sweet dog is 14 today. but mostly, i hate that i’m not with him to celebrate.  he lives with my parent’s on the east coast and right now i hate that arrangement. it is what it is and i have to wish him happy birthday from afar…. so […]

back to portland

first blog while back in portland for the new year. hard to believe it’s 2011. 2011. where did the last decade go? ************ it was hard to leave raleigh behind and to say goodbye to my sweet dog. i hate more than anything leaving him.  somehow i think it gets harder each time. ************* flew […]

end of the year

i didn’t really blog towards the end of december so i’m behind and i’m not going to attempt to catch up! my time in raleigh is coming to a close with less than a week left. i’m looking forward to going home to portland but i’m going to miss my sweet dog. it snowed a few […]

barbie’s pink convertible

welcome to north carolina. i guess it’s better than a pickup truck with a gun rack in the back. and yes, she was blonde.

travel continued

i landed in dallas and immediately started getting texts/emails from people saying that it was snowing like crazy in raleigh. i slowly headed to the skylink train to get to my next terminal. it was early in the evening but the airport felt very empty. and most of the food places were closed.  not that […]

winding down…

it’s hard to believe that 2010 is winding down and a new year is about to begin. where in the world has the year gone. better yet, where has this decade gone? apparently they’ve gone away with my youth…. but what is it that every older person says about about age?  that with age comes […]
