Word of the Year 2013

This new year marks my fifth year in a row that I’ve chosen a “Word of the Year.” The concept of this is simple: rather than choosing resolutions to attempt to accomplish within a year’s time (or give up within a week), a theme (or more frequently, a word) is chosen as an inspiring touchpoint […]

Traveling by Green Screen–VIDEO

When Zoe was 14 months old, I quit my job as a software engineer in order to be a full-time SAHM. It was exactly what she needed, and I have no regrets. Within a year of quitting that job, I started a home-based business called Portraits & Pages. I specialized in pregnancy, birthing, and breastfeeding […]

“Wright on Time” is Right on Time!–VIDEO

I love-love-love my Wright on Time series of children’s chapter books. After spending years trying to find kid fiction for my older daughter that she fully approved of (without much luck!), she brilliantly suggested that I write the perfect chapter book series. Here is a video of me talking about that process: This video was […]

THRIVE

I’ve chosen my word for 2012: THRIVE! I spent 2009 allowing, 2010 intending, and 2011 savoring. So, now, I’m ready to put the knowledge that I have gained from these experiences into real living. It’s time for me to thrive! In 2012, I am turning 40. This is a momentous occasion for nearly every human. […]

Sunset Crater, Flagstaff, Arizona

Just north of Flagstaff, AZ, lies Sunset Crater Volcano National Monument. Yes, there is a real volcano (actually a bunch of volcanos) in Arizona. Here are a few photos of us (mostly on Lenox Crater, as the public isn’t allowed to climb Sunset Crater anymore):

The future birthplace of Captain James T. Kirk from Star Trek

As big Star Trek fans, we just had to go to the future birthplace of Captain James T. Kirk since we were passing by Riverside, Iowa, on a recent trip. Our only disappointment: the giftshop wasn’t open! Here are a few photos from our fun time:

Forming Bonds Amongst Strangers: Amtrak Family

My 10 and 14 year old daughters and I recently took three trips on Amtrak, totaling over 4000 miles and nearly 100 hours on the train. While the whole train ride was an interesting and educational experience, the thing that impressed me the most was the closeness that the riders had with each other by […]

World’s Largest Ball of Twine (Made by one man)

From the moment I first heard the Weird Al song “Biggest Ball of Twine in Minnesota”, I’ve had a strong desire to go and visit that twine ball. When I lived in Iowa (I’m originally from Iowa and Illinois), I came close several times, but the timing just never quite worked. So, when it became […]

In preparation and research of my upcoming children’s chapter book, Wright on Time: Minnesota, Book 5, my daughters and I traveled to Minnesota to visit the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, the “World’s Biggest Ball of Twine”, and the Franconia Sculpture Park, as well as very good friends (our favorite part, of course!). Here are a few […]
