(Photo credit: Mr. Ben Brown via his website) Inspiration is all around us. We just have to be aware to look for it. I felt that Mondays should be my time to post about my inspirations and maybe you will be inspired too.

Festivals & Weekend Travel


So I realized today in writing this blog I had to develop some sort of a calendar. Otherwise I was going to experience writter’s block…actually I did, until I wrote out a calendar, so going forward I’m going to dedicate Fridays to covering upcoming Festivals and Weekend Travel.

Las Vegas, NV is the #3 destination…

Weekend in Portland, OR


Portland has been on my must see list for years. It was one of those places that friends said if I ever went… I wouldn’t come back. Apparently they didn’t know me too well. Granted, Portland is a cool city. It has a lot to offer from outdoors sports to arts. There are tons of great food options and there…
