Monday Montage: Petaluma, California

Today we have a guest post from one of our readers! I met and got to know Kimberly at our church back in Santa Rosa, California. She has loyally followed along on our adventures and often leaves comments that are helpful, encouraging, and insightful. I was very excited that she wanted to write a guest post about her home town, Petaluma,… Read more →

Monday Montage: Good-Byes Suck

Today is our last day in California. My heart is breaking from all the good-byes I have had to say this week, but I am so thankful that I was able to see everyone that I did.  This visit has been better than I imagined and I will be writing more about it as this week goes on, but right now… Read more →

Monday Montage: Memorial Day

Today is Memorial Day here in America. It is the day that we honor and celebrate the fallen soldiers that have died in the service of our country.  I pray for the family and friends left behind of those soldiers throughout the history of my home country. On this day some are visiting grave sites of their fallen family members. My heart… Read more →

A Lovely Time at Tudor Rose English Tea Room

There is nothing quite like a good cup of tea. I have never been a lover of coffee, but I dealt with it out of the necessity for caffeine for many years.

We have been… Read more →

Monday Montage: Mothers Day in California

It was Mothers Day yesterday here in America. I personally do not celebrate it for myself (what can I say, I am a non-conformist), but I do celebrate my mom. She is one fantastically strong woman, a loving and kind mother, and a better Nana than any grand kid could ask for.  I am so thankful for her. My mom reveled… Read more →

You’ve Gotta Know When To Hold ’em- Our Casino Night

Last night we partook in a guilty pleasure of mine that I haven’t done in a long time. We went gambling! Here in California (USA) gambling is illegal, unless the casino (or gaming facility) is on Native American land. It’s a long story as to how that came about, but if you are interested you can read about it here.… Read more →

Monday Montage: California

Whew, what a time it has been! We arrived in Northern California a little over a week ago and have been going, going, going… I do not think I have ever been so tired, and busy, and elated all at the same time. The time with my family and friends has been surreal and fabulous. I am going to go into… Read more →
