Minneapolis, Minnesota
Bridging the gap between computers and pretty dresses.
Interests: Deborah. I like caves and crystals. I am a picky purse collector, art adorer, necklace hoarder. I like to play host and bake things of a vegan nature. I could say I am a crazy cat lady but I don't think there's anything crazy about loving cats. I love to travel and decorate my house, though I have to do it when money allows like the mere mortal I am. Dresses are my clothing of choice with things I make to match. Books are my Gods. Comics my Goddesses. Legos, female actions figures and unicorns. Getting ready to publish my first Young Adult Novel and My First Story Book. Welcome!

In the last year I've been down to San Antonio twice. They have two fully vegan restaurants. I wish Minneapolis did as well. Anyway, we had gone to Green Vegetarian to find them unexpectedly closed. There was a woman there who sent us over to Senor Veggie. We were on... Continue reading

As we've been traveling the last few years we've used Airbnb a lot to find places to stay. It has worked pretty great for the most part. They are nice places and in good locations. However, on a recent trip to San Antonio, Texas I got to stay in a... Continue reading

I am all about new things the last year. I mean I've never shunned them anyway but I've been actively seeking new experiences this past year. One of the new experiences I've had recently was to attend my first camp-out music and art festival. I had no clue what to... Continue reading

I went to this museum about a month ago to see the exhibit they had on Cats & Dogs. The Blanton Museum of Art is not a big museum which worked out well for me since I did not have a lot of time. Sadly, I was not allowed to... Continue reading

I went out to see a beautiful large glass art exhibit at the MN Landscape Arboretum. I went in the early part of the morning when it was quiet and deserted. It was a really nice way to start the day. Fall is coming and the Arboretum is probably a... Continue reading

I recently visited Austin, Texas. It's a very vegan friendly town. The first night there I had dinner at a place called New India. It's a little place with great food. My favorite was the 5 Star Thali Platter that had a bowl of every vegan thing to sample on... Continue reading

These pictures are from the end of June when I took my yearly trip to the Lyndale Rose Garden to take a break from writing. I went on a perfect day. As you can see. Have a Lovely Day! Continue reading

A long time favorite place of mine for breakfast. Especially if you made a few bad decisions the night before. As it's usually cool inside and dimly lit. Triple Rock has an extensive vegan menu that includes vegan Kalhua pancakes and a glorious dish known as the Mother Biker. Tofu... Continue reading

I recently saw a big poster that said EAT WELL TRAVEL OFTEN and I thought-YES! I have taken on the very big task of truly organizing my photos and it's taking a long time but it's also showing me things I've long forgotten about. One thing I have been trying... Continue reading

OK-the title is silly but it occurred to me that I do not like the phrase Throwback Thursday. But I do like the idea of sharing past experiences. San Diego Comic Con is happening this weekend and I am not at it. I have never been in attendance despite the... Continue reading

I have been reintoduced to a pizza place here in Minneapolis the last couple of months. When Galactic Pizza first opened, I was pretty excited about having another vegan pizza option. I went there three times before giving up on it. I would have terrible experiences all three times. Bad... Continue reading

I actually saw this exhibit of Matisse about two months ago. But with working on my book and launch party, I've been unable to share it. The exhibit was at the M.I.A. and I went on the same day to see the The Art in Bloom exhibit for 2014(which I... Continue reading

I have been one very busy lady. But I am so happy and proud of what I've been doing. Over the last 8-9 years I've been slowly putting together ideas for a new young adult science-fiction series of books. I never really sat down too much to write a whole... Continue reading

Mad Mex was a place I ate at twice in Pittsburgh and it was so good! Very vegan friendly, nice staff and the portions were CRAZY. I loved the tofu tacos. Go here if you can. Some pics from my phone. They're not great but you get the idea. Continue reading

I didn't know too much about papercuts. I've seen smaller ones and have always thought they were cool. Of course, when we are kids we try our hand at making paper snowflakes. Recently, I went to one of my favorite places in Minneapolis, the American Swedish Institute. I love going... Continue reading
