To see!

Positive peeps.

Sent this to Big Girl in Alaska. She's a camp counselor up there.

A bit late posting as I was driving to San Francisco yesterday and then exploring Chinatown there. We had the most amazing dim sum for dinner. YUM! At the Sacramento airport waiting to board right now. Reality hits tomorrow. Ha! Hope you are well! Teresa

It's always nice to wave hello to the ocean.

Oh Mother Earth and the creatures that live on you.

Lovely little things.


Rewatching this with Little Girl and forgot how hilarious it is!

About 1/2 through reading this for book club.

I've been adding patches (including this one) to my travel backpack. Clearly I'm still a kid.

Little Girl and I are enjoying being with Harmony in California and working at art camp. Week one is done and went well! We are doing an Asian theme this year which is super fun. I'll share the activities we have done next week. :) Have a great one! Teresa

Orchids are amazing.
All of these are amazing.


These for appetizer.

Yum for dinner.

And these for dessert.

Ok, maybe TWO desserts.

What's going on in your world? We had some people over for the 4th and now I'm trying to get ready to go to California to visit Harmony for 2 weeks. YAY! Little Girl and I are leaving the rest of the family to go to Gualala Art Camp. We are doing an Asian theme this year. So excited! You will see lots from that in the coming weeks. :) I hope you had a lovely holiday! Teresa

UPDATE: Knoxville, TN Chapter

Pet beds stuffed with scraps, ready for donation to the Young Williams animal shelter in Knoxville Tennessee.

I didn’t get any pics, but I handed out a dozen bags outside a used book store today. They were gone in 5 minutes! 👍
