You know I’m a former Seattle girl, yes? And while I’m now an Indiana girl, I still miss the Pacific Northwest – the mountains, the food scene, friends and family who still live there and yes, even the weather . . . okay, only sometimes the weather – because when the crystal-blue skies of summer […]

Back in May, The Professor and I were invited to spend 12 days in the Tuscany region of Italy to shoot two hands-on Culinary Getaways for Jovial Foods; to say that it was an experience of a lifetime is an understatement. Gorgeous 18th Century Tuscan villa surrounded by majestic cypress trees, stone walls covered in […]

It’s been a wonderful summer, maybe the best one we’ve had yet, I’m not really sure; life is always full of adventure and good things with The Professor and I count myself very lucky to have him as my life partner. Our travel schedule has been jam-packed traversing to both coasts, to Italy and back […]

The two-story white farm house is tucked away at the end of a winding gravel road; deer and other wildlife share the land with a couple of dogs and a few other homes along that road but here, life is tranquil and meditative. The front end of two old rusted trucks peer from the overgrown […]

Georgia Pellegrini is a trained chef and published author, beautiful, smart, incredibly talented and fearless – as in knows-how-to-use-a-gun-hunts-fishes-kills her own food-cleans her own food-plays-hard, kind of fearless. A couple of years ago she put together her first Adventure Getaway and invited several of us to join her; I had a family crisis at the […]

The Professor and I have been on the road quite a bit this summer; in fact, we’ve been on the move since March and still have a few more shoots to complete before the year is finished. It’s been a wild spring and summer but we just wouldn’t have it any other way.

Last summer we spent several weeks in the Seattle area with Shauna, Danny and Lucy; we were there shooting several video pieces as well as sharing stories, birthdays and some of the glorious foods of summer. It’s just a normal day when the Aherns gather friends around their table and open their home to an […]

The Professor and I have been very fortunate to have opportunities to travel quite a bit the past few years; it’s fun, it’s exciting, it’s challenging and it has stretched both of us in ways we’ve never expected. It’s probably been more of a growing experience for me than it has been for The Professor […]

A few weeks ago, The Professor and I were basking in the incredibly photogenic hills of Murietta, California where Maggy, Pam and Erika threw one heck of a party; we were there to shoot video and capture the essence of the Big Potluck experience as well as lend a hand to help wherever we were […]

It’s been a while since we’ve posted a ’52 sundays’ post – and I have to admit I’ve really missed this; sometimes life just gets far too busy and suddenly you discover it’s been months. Here are a few photos we took while in Columbus last month – all of these were taken on my […]
