A Search For Caroline Quiner Ingalls. . .

Caroline Ingalls - Bio, Facts, Family | Famous BirthdaysWith school back in session, and the first few weeks of getting the "should have done in summer" tasks completed, I've been able to turn my thoughts back to writing. And despite having a million projects I could be working on. . .one keeps drawing my attention.

Who was Caroline Quiner Ingalls?

Now, I love the fictionalized account of her childhood. Love it. And I know there are some facts there among the stories. . .like the loss of her father, her move from Brookefield, and time in the big city. But, deep down, I know that all of the dialogue and much of the series is just supposition and story telling.  Good story telling, but fiction nonetheless.

Camping With Friends: Food for the Soul!

People think we're funny for leaving our little cabin in the woods and going camping in another set of woods. And I guess we are, a bit.

But camping isn't just about the trees. . .it's about the getting away and shutting off of distractions and being more present in the lives of those you love.

So our vacation this year was a split camping trip: the first leg was in the Redwoods of Northern California and the second was further up the coast at Patrick's Point. Each half had it's own beauty and experiences and set of friends that went along with it.
