For Evan…

Welcome to my blog. For some time now, I have been thinking about starting a blog. Nervous about my readership (only my brother-in-law, Evan, has promised to read it) and what to write about that they (he) might find interesting enough to regularly read, I have held off until now. Part class assignment, part personal exploration, this will be a venue to share with others what I am up to and what I am thinking. I will consider this one thing checked off my “Mighty List!”

The Backstory: the last month of August has been deranged. My husband ¬†and I said good bye to a wonderful place that we have called home for the past 5 years – San Diego, California, and moved on to greener* pastures of Duluth, Minnesota. I said good-bye to wonderful and supportive friends and a great job working for the Port of San Diego,¬†turned another year older, traveled over 2,000 miles across country alone in my car, slept very little, cried lots, was hosted by gracious family and arrived for my first day of “work” on August 31. I have started my first year of graduate school with my end goal of a MFA in Graphic Design. Below are a few good shots from our journey. Better photos of Duluth will come… for another post.

Wouldn't be a typical trip without some wildlife - two California Condors. At one point, they were said to be less than 20 left in the world; now the condors' numbers are well over 200.

Just about to enjoy the "retreat" at M's aunt and uncles in Wichita Falls, Texas. I could have stopped right here and lived here. Loved the pool.
