The Other Side of the Owl

We’ve been to the local Owl Mountains a few times in the past, but we’ve mostly hit the same trails since we simply didn’t know any better. So when the weather forecast called for a super sunny and warm day this past Saturday, we knew that we had to spend that day outdoors, but we…

Dresden Christmas Market

Speaking of Dresden… There are quite a few things that took place between our trip to Dresden in August and today, but since today’s story also deals with Dresden, I’ll just write about it now.

Selling My Zoom

Remember my ‘Rust Bucket List’ post from 2011 where I introduced my newish Mazda 6? (LINK here) Well, five years later it’s time to bid farewell to that rust bucket, very literally speaking.
