Winter at the Golden Gate

Winter at the Golden Gate

At the risk of coming off like a simpleton who only comments on the weather…here I go with yet another weather-related post.  Moving out west from the cold, dreary, depressingly-long winters of New England, I was enamored with the year-round pleasantness of San Diego and thought I would never leave.  After about 8 years however, I… + Read More

Digging through the vaults

Digging through the vaults

When you wake up on New Year’s day, no matter how impervious to may feel to nostalgia…you probably fall victim, even if only for a few thoughts on days gone by.  Last year was a very busy year for us and we are just now re-establishing our bearings.  We made one of the most difficult… + Read More

Time to take a breath

Time to take a breath

Late last week – after months of house-hunting as a full time job – we finally moved into our new home in lovely Cotati, CA (neighbors with Petaluma for those unfamiliar with Cotati).  I’m always taking photos…of something or another.  I’m often told I need to meditate more – to help clear and re-center my… + Read More

We Love Cotati!

We Love Cotati!

When we first arrived into Sonoma county – looking for our new home and a place to establish some long-term roots – we stumbled across a little town that we’d never heard of before,  Cotati.  Cotati is where we found the perfect temporary rental for us, our three dogs and 6 chickens and one cat… + Read More

Autumn in Sonoma

Autumn in Sonoma

Had to pull over on my way into Sonoma and take a moment to appreciate how beautiful California is this time of the year. This valley will look a lot different in another month so watch this space… + Read More

Trip back home to Rhode Isaland

Trip back home to Rhode Isaland

As we were packing for our trip back east this summer, we were fully in the midst of our big move up to Sonoma.  Our house had sold – what seemed like overnight – and when we would return from our trip, we would have exactly one week to pack up, leaving Oceanside in the… + Read More

Wish me luck

Wish me luck

Anyone who knows me (even just a little) can see that I what I lack in focus, I more than make up for in enthusiasm.  Our blog is meant to keep people up-to-date with what we’ve been up to lately but sadly, I’ve let my role in this slip.  It’s not because we’ve been slacking,… + Read More

The Viera Family

The Viera Family

I have been waiting to release these, but I am feeling a lot of love for my family today so I had to put them up! We have only had a family portrait done a handful of times (if that). Mostly because we both feel much more comfortable behind the camera than in front of… + Read More

For The Love Of Vans

For The Love Of Vans

Awhile back, I was checking the surf at Seaside reef in Cardiff, when local legend Rob Machado cruised in to the parking lot to do the same in his van.  I’d run into him a few weeks earlier at my local lab (he’s a talented surfer and  artist) when he commented on my van which was idling… + Read More

A Gift From Aotearoa

A Gift From Aotearoa

Aotearoa or, ‘land of the long white cloud’  is the Maori name for New Zealand.  Springtime in the Northern Hemisphere is Autumn in the Southern Hemisphere and when the first, early-winter storms make landfall and pound NZ with Antarctic winds, snow, hail, and other extreme weather.  When the weather abates and these storms pass offshore, they move… + Read More
