A Porpoise in Corpus

We arrive at my sister’s apartment late Tuesday night after an epic 10 hour drive of Subway, smoothies and roadside stops for the doggies. My sister had several things planned for all of us to do while we were visiting. One of the things Corpus Christi is known for are it’s beaches, often as a Spring Break hotspot. Lucky for … Read More

Sweet Tea, half and half

Hanging in my Aunt’s kitchen is a sign defining the South as “where the tea is sweet, and the accents are sweeter.” My visit to Mt. Juliet couldn’t have been better. I was greeted with open arms and even a chocolate milkshake! Apparently having a love for chocolate tends to run with first-born Sizemore children. My Aunt and I stayed … Read More

Be Kind, Be Careful

I just ate a sandwich that contained organic, antibiotic free chicken. Welcome to Asheville, North Carolina, the Paris of the South.

Right now the car is so full that only one dog crate can be ‘open’ so we rotated with one in the crate and the other in my lap. A lucky bamboo plant that I had in my office almost didn’t fit … Read More

Cross country road trip: The Plan

I’ve given a lot of thought into how to approach this road trip. My conclusion is that this is a perfect opportunity for me to explore the Southern states that I have never been to before, and to really take my time. I realize that cross country road trips are usually “once in a lifetime” ordeals, but this is actually … Read More

Meet the dogs!

HI. I’M MEEKO. I am full of mischief. I like to find paper and then tear it into teeny tiny pieces. I also like to chase things. If it moves, it’s a sheep. Soccer ball? Sheep. Human feet trying to go down the stairs? Sheep. Snickers? Sheep. OH! That’s right, this is Snickers. She is my big sister. Except we’re … Read More
