Scotty's Table dining room

Missoula: Eats: Scotty’s Table

  Is there really anything better in life than catching up with a beloved friend after a long absence? The giddiness of seeing their face again, the unending telling of story after story, the back and forth, as you try to fill in the gaps that time and distance have planted between you. I have a very favorite friend who, though I don’t get to connect with her as much as I would like, is someone I could gladly spend...

Missoula: Eats: Big Dipper Ice Cream

On a hot summer’s day, is there really anything better than a crispy, vanilla-y cone full of luscious, creamy ice cream? Well, maybe a cold glass of rosé but that’s a whole other post. If you happen to find yourself in Missoula, Montana then you, my friend, are in luck. Because we have, Big Dipper Ice Cream. Big Dipper Ice Cream They started serving up the good stuff in 1995 and Missoulians have been elbowing each other out of the way...

Conservatory Skulking

I know, I know. I promised updates and posts about Montana and where we are living now. They are coming, definitely, but my other half had to go to Spokane for a seminar so, of course, I tagged along. Who could pass up the chance of some “city” comforts (i.e. Thai food, Indian food and Anthropologie) when you spend most of your days rattling around the mountains? Um, not me! So, tag along, I did. Spokane is our nearest city...

Cruising Home and Settling In

  We made it! Ahh, our feet are firmly and happily planted on Montana soil once again and we haven’t stopped moving since we arrived. We’ve reconnected with friends and family, I’ve started my pastry class (more on that soon!), we went and checked out the old motel we bought (that’s a whole post on its own) and Erik even raced in the Rocky Mountain Roubaix. I’m still trying to unpack and settle us in our new location, Dillon, MT...

3 Weeks and 2 Days Until Liberation

Sometimes you just want to go home. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love this traveling lifestyle. I still enjoy the waking up in new places and that moment of, “Where the heck are we?” and soaking in the scents and smells and sights and, well, different-ness of a new location, the peculiarities that make it so NOT home. It’s fun, exciting, always an adventure. But, so far, no matter where I am, no matter what I’m doing, after a...

I Am An Athletic Supporter

And they’re off! Austin Marathon Start. Go Erik, Go! So, we just got back from Austin, TX (FABULOUS city, by the way) having traveled there this past weekend for the Austin Marathon. No, smart-asses, I didn’t run it, my athletically-inclined husband did. Me? I just tagged along for the chance to experience a city I haven’t seen before and get the hell out of Clovis for awhile. Oh, and to play my role as Athletic Supporter. Yea, there was that....
