Beautiful and Treacherous

We are back home today. Smartest move I ever made? Taking the day off. I knew we’d want a chance to recuperate. What I did not expect was for the city to shut down thanks to a surprise snow and ice storm yesterday – one that made the long drive back both beautiful and treacherous.Continue reading “Beautiful and Treacherous”

Winning

I feel like I’m on a winning streak lately. I should probably head to Nevada or something, huh? Wait. I’m in Nevada! Hmm… I suppose it feels like I’ve been winning because, well, I’ve been winning.

The One Where Heidi & Ross Tie the Knot

“Be it ever so humble, there’s no place like home.”  After roasting in the California heat (and what was that strange bright object in the sky, anyway?), truer words were never spoken. We love our gray, wet and cool corner of the country. Having said that, our road trip was a blast. We had aContinue reading “The One Where Heidi & Ross Tie the Knot”
