Three Hours of Awesome: Madonna 2015

Yes it was the best concert of my 41 years. Worth every penny no question. I snapped a few photos, shown below. I sang, I danced, I cried, I cheered. I bought the hoodie (super soft) and the BITCH tank top and the program. I didn’t need a t-shirt with tour dates to prove to others I was there. I…

Our New Years Eve Groove

Bar none, my best New Years Eve ever! We got gussied up and went down to Jimmy Mak’s, a longtime Portland jazz club in the Pearl District, and enjoyed seeing our friend, legendary jazz and soul singer Shirley Nanette, who I’ve known since I was a girl of 17, headline the show (and who blog readers might remember sang at…

2014 in Pictures

Beautiful, crazy, amazingly full year. I am grateful. I am stronger. I am wiser. I am still evolving and learning and stumbling. I am this one soul, this one heart, this one body.

It was my first time driving a car onto a ferry – we had…

Honeymoon Happies: Lake Quinault

After our honeymoon kicked off in Astoria, we headed north on Highway 101 and through the forest and along sections of the Washington Coast. What a gorgeous drive! Hard to believe I grew up in the Northwest and had never driven this section of 101. Plenty of spots along the way we’d like to escape to in the future. Anyhow,…

Birthday Getaway: Oregon Wine Country

“The best birthday of my adult life” my husband called the surprise overnight getaway to Oregon Wine Country I put together for him this week. With a Zipcar and a change of clothes, we were off to Dundee, Dayton, Newberg, and St Paul to explore a few wineries, eat good food, and most of all, just enjoy the peace and…
