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!

I find it quite likely as I tall as I am that they will not fit me. That said I wouldn't mind making all my friends try them on like Cinderella. That lady can get a bad rep. sometimes. She only wanted new shoes and a night off. Who doesn't? ;o) Deborah

In continuing to tour the Minnesota Wineries, a trek was made out to Wild Mountain Winery. It was a bit of a drive but the land around it is quite beautiful. The same day I spent part of the day in the town of Taylors Falls, Minnesota. Taking a boat... Continue reading

One of the best things I've ever had the privilege of doing is getting to tour the NASA Vehicle Assembly Building. It's no longer open to the public as it closed to prepare for work on getting to Mars. When I was there (About 3 years ago) it had not... Continue reading

This is one of my favorite places to eat when I get to Chicago. I just love it, love it, love it. The food is so yummy. There was only one location of The Chicago Diner the last time I was there two years ago but now there is a... Continue reading

It is gloomy here this election day. So I was looking at pictures from my visit to Lake Michigan in Chicago about 6 weeks ago. It was a nice, warm fall day. I really love visiting the Great Lakes. I've been to Chicago many times at this point in my... Continue reading

Some pictures from my day trip to a great town called Taylors Falls. I took a paddleboat ride on the river and walked around the main street. It's such a pretty area and a lot of people were out and about(these pictures were taken in the middle of August). There... Continue reading

Back at the start of August I was in Texas for a week. We try very hard to not only visit big tourist sites but things a little more off the beaten path. One of the great things we found to visit in Austin, Texas was Zilker Botanical Garden. It... Continue reading

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
