DE to CA

Posted on

I made it!

I arrived in San Francisco on Thanksgiving and have settled in nicely with family. I’m excited for this new adventure, new ideas, and new energy. I’m so excited to share this journey with you.

My dad and I drove cross country in 6 days! We had the best time! Stops included Nashville TN, Oklahoma City OK, Albuquerque NM, Las Vegas NV, and Lake Tahoe CA. My favorite city was Lake Tahoe – it was absolutely beautiful and the air was so crisp and clean! I could stare at the lake all day long. We also took a morning to hike Horsetail Falls – 3 hours of glorious scenery and mixed terrain. Such a great experience to enjoy with my dad.

Some of the topics I’ll be exploring and sharing with you include: new city adventures, new eats, navigating/hiking the hills!, adjusting to a minimalist lifestyle, California travels, and photography. This new chapter is all about “stepping outside the box” to find my true happiness and creativity.



Full Moon Week

Posted on

I don’t know about you, but this week has been crazy. As I was driving home from work the other night, I looked up and saw a giant full moon. No wonder the crazies are all out! I’m pooped from the week and looking forward to spending time with friends this weekend…and a giant glass (bottle) of wine. Happy weekend!

Weekly Tidbits – week of 8/22

Posted on

I’ve gotten behind on my weekly tidbits posts the past few weeks, so I’m glad to be back. Lots going on last week and this upcoming week. I took pictures recently of the condo to share with all of you soon! Crazy week with a random earthquake and hurricane to hit the area.  Four day work week coming up and a fun weekend with friends planned.






Oh happy day

Quick update – I’m writing to you from my new iPhone and I’m loving it!

As my dad says “Em, you’re a shiny object person!” I always agree and smile.

Well today he proved his point but also proved that it’s in my genes 😉 since he bought mom/him an iPad and apple tv! Of course, the apple tv wasn’t part of the original plan for today.

All additional plans for today are cancelled, we’ll all be playing with our new toys. Oh happy day!

The Making of door13

Posted on

door13 is my “blogita” (baby blog) as I don’t have a real baby or fur baby and won’t be getting either any time soon! I will love it completely.

I can’t wait to dig deeper into blog-making – this will be an ever-changing creative process! A constant process of tweaking and updating.  I’ve started with a simple WordPress template and will go from there. I hope you’ll join me along the creative process…

Stay tuned and share your feedback as we progress…
