I'm Amber! Welcome to the blog, a journal about my business, travels, and attempts at life. Stay a while and say hello!

Hi There!

A couple weeks ago, I posted a blog post with a list of 25 Activities for Quarantine… One of the activities on that list was “Start a travel journal”, beginning with making a list of all the places you plan to go once this pandemic is over. And that’s exactly what I did! I created […]

1. GO CAMPING IN THE BACKYARD Pack up the tent, sleeping bags, and s’mores! Go pitch your campsite under the stars of your own backyard. Build a campfire, make a camp dinner, tell fun stories, and top it all off by roasting marshmallows or making s’mores!   2. HAVE A PICNIC If you’re not a […]

Port Aransas, Texas has been my home away from home ever since I can remember. My family has been vacationing there every summer since I was about two. It’s is a quaint little fishing town on Padre Island in the Gulf of Mexico. The beaches are lined with families and friends in vacation mode – […]

So I know 2020 quarantine is making us a little crazy…. So I decided to put together a list of my top 10 all-time favorite TV shows. Because, let’s be honest, we’ve all been watching a lot of TV lately… And who knows! Maybe you’re out there right now just dying for something new, something […]

When I first started my photography business, I managed my projects with email and notebooks… And just to give you a little background about myself, I am someone who LIVES for structure. It sort of runs my life, which is a borderline bad thing… but that’s another issue for another time. I knew I couldn’t […]

As a business owner and, lets face it, someone living in 2020, I’ve grown more and more familiar with the feeling of stress and anxiety. It’s scary. It’s uncomfortable. And the feeling of anxiety alone can lead to even more stress and anxiety – like a big, bad snowball steamrolling its way down a hill. […]

I love traditions…. So much so, that I have a list of around 20 Christmas movies I watch during the month of December. And for the purpose of this story, that list did not include Die Hard. Then I met Trey… And guess what his favorite Christmas movie is? Die Hard. So you can bet Die […]

Look how far we’ve come Look where we started from Best thing about it is you know we’ve only just begun They say life’s a dance Ten percent circumstance but What great adventure ever plays out just the way you’ve planned it We’ll fly into the turbulence No telling where we’re gonna land Isn’t that […]

Kyoto, Japan… City of A Thousand Shrines. It was July. And it was hot. And Kyoto is one of those walk-around-and-see-all-the-sights kind of cities. Not much of a vibe for sitting on a balcony and enjoying the view. You’ve got to get out and see and do! Which I actually believe is one of the […]

Dear birthday boy, Wow. This has been a really big year. Since your last birthday, we made the decision to pack up our lives in Texas and move to Hawaii. We found a couple jobs, a cute little house by the beach, and figured out our new surroundings together. We’ve seen landscapes that look like […]
