Welcome to my blog!

This is blog is about me dabbling with a little bit of everything, and not being particularly good at anything. And about the places I've been either on vacation or SAG:ing my husbands bicycle trips.

Paris and Venice Vacation


Jeff and I did a 10 day trip to Paris and Venice this last October. Some of the highlights were to see the Queen's Hamlet at the Versailles. We have been there before but never made it to the Hamlet. What an adorable place. The other highlight was to go and see Monet's Giverney. Absolutely lovely. Worth the day trip there.
