Photo Sunday: Stairs

Paid admission to the Museu Tauri in Barcelona allows you to explore this former bullfighting arena. We climbed up these “Vertigo” stairs to wander around the upper deck seating area. I blogged about the museum on my Eurotrip site. This is my entry for this week’s Photo Sunday Challenge: Stairs.

Last weekend, I played in the dirt with my hubby. I ripped out weeds and dead stems left behind from our first garden in Cow Town. Next, we added new soil and mapped out spots for our new plants. Before dawn, I spent a few hours researching what plants work for our garden space. Last […]

Already gone…

It’s gloomy outside, but I could already feel the warmth of Mark’s hug. I’m already in San Francisco, drinking in the beautiful Christmas lights. I’m already tasting the amazing selection of food and drinks in the city by the bay.
