Halloween Throwbacks

Halloween is so endearing to me this year. It’s made me so happy to see everyone dressing up and putting in the effort to be silly and not take themselves too seriously. Especially with the messiness of the world these days… it’s been a nice break the last few days.

Small Town Colorado: Nederland, CO

Hi! I have a section of this blog called Small Town Colorado. Even though I don’t live there anymore, I still want to share some of the small towns I came across. They really were one of my favorite parts about Colorado.

Roadside sunset in Arizona

The timing worked out great: just as we crossed over the Arizona border, the sun was setting as the moon came up behind some INTENSE Arizona landscapes.

Green spotlight: a green book review

A goal of mine is to use my blog as an outlet to spread sustainable behavior and tips. So I’ll be doing some reviews on ‘green things’ – whatever I think I know enough on that could maybe encourage a reader or two to learn something or become a little more environmentally friendly.

First up: a review on a green book!
