City of Lights

Photo by Paul Gaudriault City of Lights I’d always thought of planning a trip to Paris. In my youth, I had grand thoughts of ‘finding myself’ as I traversed the European countryside.

Walking the streets with my camera, eating delectable pastries, sipping coffee … Continue reading City of Lights

When I wanted to move from simply journaling to writing, I started participating in NaNoWriMo. Though I’ve just restarted this blog in the past few years, I started writing in NaNoWriMo with my children years and years ago. As eclectic … Continue reading Writers Block
