A few years ago, I unearthed a travel journal from a month-long trip to Europe that I took in 2006. As I reviewed its pages, I was struck by just how many details of the trip I had completely forgotten. And if the memories of a once-in-a lifetime trip that was so impactful to me could fade away – how much of my day-to-day life is lost? Sensations, emotions, achievements, losses, experiences from the mundane to the exceptional, all transforming from that specific moment in time to become that day, that week, that year, that life…

As I get older and gain a better understanding of how fragile, how brief, and how precious life really is, it's become even more important to me to me experience it to its fullest and to try to retain all of those little moments that might otherwise get lost. It's with this idea that I started the process of recording these moments – a travel journal, of sorts.

A travel journal for life.

I’ve been a complete and total slacker, so here’s a brief synopsis of what’s been going on: 
I’ve been playing tennis - and breaking dress codes.
Is it me, or does # 3 seem fairly restrictive for a public court?

We saw EnVogue.
The summer of 90's r&b continues!

We’ve been out with friends.
Bernie and his sweetheart.

We went to another baseball game.  Ugh.
It was stinkin' hot - but the Pirates won!

I bought new shoes.
That's always fun!

I had the 4th of July off.  It’s awesome to have a break in the middle of the week.

I watched the most spectacular lightening storm I have ever seen.
Talk about silver linings!

 I went home to WV to spend the weekend with my family.
So lovely.

Nannie turned 93.
Happy Birthday, Nannie!

Now, back to our regularly scheduled blogging…  I’m going to try not to be so lazy; promise.
