Columbus Museum of Art

Today I visited the Columbus Museum of Art. It is in a really beautiful building in downtown Columbus. Unfortunately on this visit a few of the galleries were closed while a new exhibit was being installed, but they were very kind in giving us a discount for that inconvenience. The museum is currently undergoing construction […]


What is this madness? How did Grumpy Cat get a line of bottled coffee? Just a note to say hello, and post this ridiculousness. I saw an amazing gallery show today, but I don’t have the time or energy to do it justice, so I’m going to save it for tomorrow. I love traveling because […]

Airport Carpet

I spent much of the day traveling from Portland to Columbus, and documented the carpet at each airport. I prefer the bright colors of the PDX carpet to the muted tones of the Denver and Columbus carpets. I could see this becoming a really fun series. You never really think about how hard airport carpet […]

Heading to Columbus

Writing this blog post is the last task before I try to go to sleep at an impossibly early hour. I have to be up at 2:00 a.m. for a flight to Ohio. I’m already wishing I had chosen a later flight. :) I’m visiting my boyfriend’s family in Columbus. I’m a little nervous about […]

Tree of Life Mural

I tried a new lunch place today (Roses Ice Cream), and when we sat down I saw a mural about a block in the distance. After we finished eating, I had to investigate the mural. I found a stunning set of twin murals by Loey Hargrove of Left Ear Studio. The murals are on buildings […]

90 Mile Beach

My goodness, it’s hard to think of something to write about after a 12 hour day at work. Thankfully, I’m able to transport myself to the impossibly beautiful 90 Mile Beach tonight through a micro SD card. ♥ New Zealand ♥

Color Story: Seattle Gum Wall

I don’t have a lot of time tonight, so I’m going to share the very colorful photos from my visit to the Seattle Gum Wall last weekend. The wall is located in an alley underneath Pike Place Market. The wall definitely lived up to its gross reputation. My favorite part was the strings of gum […]

Make It Work, Carry On

As I was watching the latest episode of Project Runway, it occurred to me that my post from yesterday was a little defeatist. I’ve always loved Tim Gunn’s critiques on Project Runway, especially his repeated advice to “Make it Work” and “Carry On.” So simple, but really that advice can be applied to so many […]

Index Card a Day 2014 (ICAD) Fail

In June I attempted the Index Card a Day challenge, and failed miserably. These are two of four cards that I completed in two months. I really struggle with daily challenges. I get excited about the idea of a daily challenge, but have trouble with the execution. I think it’s partially an all or nothing […]
