Welcome to Louisiana {living outside the stacks}

Welcome to Louisiana

I’m sitting here at the Alexandria RV Camp with a sweet tea to my left and trees to my right. We are finally in Louisiana and almost ready to begin our next adventure. I say “almost” because The Hubs and I are living in our RV until our permanent housing […]

Mobile in the Library {living outside the stacks}

My Last Day of Work

Today was my last day of work in Georgia. I’ve been here three years, but it feels longer than that. It also feels less than that. Does that make any sense? I remember my interview for the job — it was a telephone interview. I was so incredibly nervous. I […]

GA House {living outside the stacks}

Things Are Getting Real

I realized that I never gave a tour of our home when we first moved in {even though I’d said in numerous blog posts that I would}. So, I guess it’s better late than never, right? Welcome to our space… Do you see those beautiful transoms? Yeah, those are what […]

Welcome to My New Home

After much househunting, I’ve finally settled on a new home and I think I’ll be very happy in my new neighborhood. I’d like to thank Kat J. Robertson for packing and unpacking the boxes for me.  She also took care of the interior decorating (also known as setting up my […]
