Starting in 2017 I want to make life a little more, well, more. So I sat down and started this list. It's a more than a bit daunting, but I do want to do everything on it. Everything on it and more. I'm sure the list will grow as I do!
It's been a few months since we said "I do," and we finally have all the pictures of our day. We became engaged in late 2015. Once we made the decision, it felt silly to wait around. We set the date for less than a year out. Which made 2016 mostly a blur of preparation … Continue reading Get Married
December 2016 we made it to Paris. It was just after Christmas and tourists were everywhere. Lines for any of the top Parisian attractions were measured in half days instead of minutes. Hard choices had to be made. For us, the choice was see the Catacombs of Paris or climb the Eiffel Tower. Much discussion … Continue reading See the Eiffel Tower at Night

A few years ago they put in a butterfly exhibit - The Butterfly and Insect Pavilion is a total … Continue reading Visit a Butterfly Sanctuary
Comic conventions make my world go 'round. They are like joining a giant club where everyone is supportive and interested in similar things. Maybe all clubs are like that.

Ferris wheels have shown up on a lot of my adventures. There is something so soothing and exciting about riding high in the sky! Plus, some are slow and some are scary fast- you never know what to expect.
Each piece is given space to shine. It really is an environment to admire. Great lighting, roped off areas, places to sit and watch. The building itself is beautiful, inside and out.
Airboats are SO LOUD! So loud that they require ear protection!
I love the Dr. Who reboot. Full-on obsession with both the Tenth and Eleventh Doctors. So, of course, I love everything TARDIS-related. Last year, my fiancé-at-the-time and I dropped by CONvergence, which is a comic convention in Minneapolis. 2016's theme was "But how do we get there?" and involved transportation in media. Obviously, there were … Continue reading Take a Picture with a TARDIS
I have loved the musical masterpiece, Moulin Rouge ever since I saw it in 2003. It was so fantastical, I assumed every bit of it was fiction. To my delight, I discovered one day in 2016 that it was real.
