Visited My Mom in Arizona

In February I had the opportunity to visit my mom and stepfather in Arizona. It was an incredible time to see her on her turf.

We went to the Grand Canyon and Botanical Garden while I marveled at the beauty of the Desert. We also went shopping at Old Town Scottsdale.

Amid all of those adventures we also just had some fun together. I got to meet her sweet pit bull while we watched tv together. He actually lets her test her necklace length on him, he is pretty tolerant.

We visited with my AnniGram eating at Golden Corral.

At home we went through old pictures. My mom began to organize them by year, and I worked on scanning them into the computer. It was incredible to spend time clarifying my heritage. I was to treasure that history and pictures for my future kids. I learned more about our timeline in Germany, and even found a few pictures from our trip to the gorgeous castle the Neuschwanstein. :0) Pictures and history are so important!

  • Celebrated One Year at Tortuga Terrac... Today marks a special day! One year that hubby and I have lived at our first house! I think over the past year I officially forgot to introduce Tortuga Terrace.

  • Cuddled and Adopted a Penguin The weekend before last, I celebrated my birthday up north at the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore. According to my research its the closest zoo that offers penguin experiences/encounters. (And just $45 for a cheek to beak experience). I’d already lost my heart at one experience with Busch/Seaworld, but I wanted to see the penguins at one of [...]
  • Rescued Penguins For My Birthday I daydream about being a Disney princess…but it isn’t for the princes, the fancy castle, clothes, or even the books (I know *gasp*!) its because I secretly wish that I could whistle (ok, I can’t even whistle in the first place…) and animals would come walk over to me. Sure there are some animals that [...]
  • Ranted about the “Me Before You... Guys, why do we (especially the Christian conservatives) freak out about EVERY new book (but more so when its made into a movie) that comes out with an agenda that doesn’t quite match God’s standards? (Um, hello, there is one Bible, and its pretty clear that the world has different standards). This post is in [...]

About Me

Hi! My name is Erin, and this is a place to "process out loud" in the words of my friends. You've probably noticed that the theme is kind of a wide theme, that is much like my life as I'm interested in MANY things: traveling, photography, jogging (its new!), being crafty, homesteading, firearms/self defense, and learning how to be a good wife. Through all of these things my goal is growing to know Christ more, and to make Him known. Each post shares a little about the promise that God has given me, that He'll finish what he began in me! (Phil 1:6) So thank you for joining me on this wonderful adventure.
