Monochrome Monday Tony and Daenel {living outside the stacks} 3
Last year, I started a series called “Life After Kids” in which I shared how The Hubs and I were adjusting to life as empty nesters. A few of you noticed that I’d stopped writing the series and wanted to know why. Well, there aren’t any specific reasons. I just […]

Monochrome Monday: Life After Kids


Coffee Talk {living outside the stacks} 7
I’d like to welcome you to Coffee Talk. In case you’re new here, this is where I share some of the great and not~so~great stuff that I find on the web. Topics range from news stories that leave me scratchin’ my head to DIYs that I think are absolutely clever. […]

Week 3: My Favorite



Happiness is a gecko {living outside the stacks} 6
I tend to be very critical of my photography. In my head I have this image that I want to create. This scene I want to set. This mood I want to capture. And it never seems to materialize. I know that some of it is that I don’t have […]

My Favorite Photos of the Week


Monochrome Monday Shoes {living outside the stacks} 4
This was my weekend to work, so I didn’t get the opportunity to take many pictures. So since I was off today and needed to get this week’s Flickr Project 52: 2016 Edition prompt out of the way, I decided to share it today. The prompt for this week is “Dark”, […]

Week 1 Who Am I {living outside the stacks} #eyecandyproject52 6
At almost 43, I’m still trying to figure it out. There are times when I feel like a teenager, dipping a toe into the warm waters of adulthood. Then there are times when I feel like an old hand at this grown~up thing, jumping head first into the deep end. I’m […]

Week 1: Who Am I?


Evening Cup {living outside the stacks} 2
My day actually began before it ended. Somewhere around 11:30 Friday night I decided I wanted nothing more than to soak in the tub with some eucalyptus and spearmint scented epsom salt, so that’s what I did. What I hadn’t planned on doing was staying in the tub until almost 1 […]
