Adventure #6: Backyard Shenanigans

*This is Adventure #6 in my Top 10 Adventures (of the past year and a half) Countdown* Not every adventure takes me far from home. Some of my greatest adventures have come with home ownership. Mike and I have had our place in south Phoenix for 3.5 years now, though it doesn’t seem like that … Continue reading

Adventure #10: Rolling, Rolling, Rolling . . .

Here’s the first installment of my Top 10 Adventures (of the past year and a half) countdown. I’m going to cheat a little bit on some of these, so consider yourself forewarned. #10 is actually multiple adventures packed into one category: bike ridin’! Those of you who know me know that I ride my bike … Continue reading

Blog? What blog?

Well, obviously my 2012 New Year’s resolution didn’t go well (not to mention 2013): four posts last year and none so far this year. However, all of that is about to change, my friends. In order to gear up for my next adventure (which I’ll tell you all about once it’s ready to roll out), … Continue reading


I was going to wait until I had edited photos of Bryce Canyon before writing my next post, but poor Mike can’t keep up with my demands. He has a self-imposed deadline to finish editing a wedding he shot, so my blog pictures just don’t receive the attention they deserve. *Sigh* As a result, you’ll … Continue reading

Traveling Applejax Dot Com!

I have upgraded and updated my blog with every intention of being much better about posting things in the future. You can tell I’m more serious because I have a .com and not a or I know I’ve said before that I would return to blogging only to post 3 times and disappear … Continue reading

Meet Billy!

Mike and I are thoroughly enjoying the comforts of home — especially since we’ve splurged a bit with some super comfortable furniture. Our bedrooms still need quite a bit of putting together, but we’ve managed to make our living areas presentable at least. Mike wants you to know that the photos below were taken with … Continue reading

New Home!

Mike and I finally have a house in Arizona! It’s a three bedroom beauty in a really nice neighborhood. We have access to pools, lakes, disc golf, tennis, racquetball, a library, a golf course, and various other amenities in our community. We also have a fabulous new chocolate-colored couch. Obviously you should take the time … Continue reading

Stateside Update

Sorry I’ve been neglecting my blog lately — I really do want to get some more pictures and stories posted. The problem is we are far from settled, even after being back in Arizona for a week. Right now we’re sleeping on our friends’ futon and house-hunting on our bikes. That’s fun. The weather did … Continue reading

Extreme Makeover

Mike and I have been having computer problems again, so it looks like it may be a while before I post some more pictures. This is bad for the short term, but good for your summer since it means that I’ll be posting long after we get back to Arizona. And I know that this … Continue reading

Ho-Hum . . . Not!

I know that I’ve been a bad girl. I haven’t updated the blog in about 2 weeks. Some of you may think that this is because Mike and I are Stateside and we have fewer blog-worthy stories. Not so. Mostly, I haven’t posted because I’ve been so damn busy! We’re used to biking all day, … Continue reading
