The first two pages of my travel journal.
I had good intentions of filling this journal with bits and pieces of cherished moments roaming from Kansas, Memphis, Virginia, Pennsylvania, DC, New Jersey, New York, Maryland...
however, it just didn't happen. Possibly, it seemed priority to simply take it all in and enjoy the company of those whom I was sharing the beauty with, rather than spend time documenting each step of the way. Naturally, when my family was here for Spring break just last month, I wanted to savor every single minute of each day with just them...not my travel journal!
The time seems "right" now, to begin my travel-art journal, afterall, ADVENTURE is now a huge part of my daily lifestyle, even if it involves only a quick walk down the trail!
My friend, Laura, is here visiting from Florida, and because she and I both share the same interests, she too, will be adding momentos to her travel journal. I have no excuses to not work on my journal now!

These are a few of the photos that I captured on our first day out together as we walked locally.
I am surrounded by beauty here, in this new place called home. I never seem to get bored with the local atmosphere. I find new photo opportunities on every path that I take!
Today I have chosen to stay behind as Laura and another friend explore Washington, DC. The three of us will re-connect on Saturday so this allows me some creative time alone to prepare for the big adventure.
I woke at 6:30 am, brewed the morning coffee. I sipped it slowly...while sitting outside on the deck. I greeted the tiny birds and enjoyed their songs.
 I live amongst the most beautiful finds...
right here.


  1. What a great start to your travel journal and I loved watching it evolve over coffee and conversation! You do live in a beautiful place my friend! I loved being there and thank you for your hospitality and love!

  2. What a beautiful day we had! I love all the snippets of memories you included here! Can't wait for the next leg of our adventure! xo
