If you met someone who had never seen the Grand Canyon... how would you go about explaining it to them? Could words ever do it justice? For those that have been there, do pictures really do it justice? Having been there a couple of times myself, I can positively...read more
I mentioned in last week's post that Chengdu, China is really known for the pandas, but has some other notable attributes as well. The city itself is a pretty modern looking city, with newer high-rises and lots of construction going on around the city, suggesting...read more
It’s different, and maybe a little whacky, but it will hopefully have you intrigued! Check out the photo-narrative!

For the last several years, the Knoxville affiliate of Susan G. Komen has selected 8 men to be community spokesmen, and advocates for breast cancer survivors and breast cancer awareness. The number is significant because one in eight women will be diagnosed with...read more
The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure is always a special celebration of life and hope for our family, and this year was certainly no different. What was different this year though, was that Holly was all decked out in brand new New Balance gear! 🙂 Holly was...read more

This week on Picture of the Week I'm starting my series on China from our travels there earlier this summer. I figured since I've featured animals the last two weeks (our cat Charlie and the non-snow monkeys from Japan) that I'd just carry the theme on through, and...read more
...while I'm on the subject of animals doing funny things (if you missed it, be sure to check out last week's post on monkeys), this seriously cracked me up, so I had to share. Our cat Charlie loves to sleep in the funniest of positions, and sometimes in the funniest...read more
This week we say farewell to Japan (for now) on Picture of the Week, and I wanted to end with a whimsical post... and what could be a more whimsical subject than monkeys? As I was planning my trip to Japan, one of the things I really wanted to see were the snow...read more

By all relevant metrics (population / GDP / etc), Tokyo is the largest "city" in the world. I say "city", because Tokyo is technically not actually a city, but rather a metropolis, which is a collection of 23 city-like (meaning they have their own partial...read more
When I think about Japan, one of the things that stands out in my mind is its architecture, and more specifically, its ancient architecture. While I was visiting, I wanted to capture something that just said "Japan" to me, and while Mount Fuji is unmistakably...read more
Prior to leaving for Japan, I asked my friends who had been there what all I should see, and what I should avoid. Almost universally, people said 'avoid temple-fatigue' in Kyoto. As it turns out, there are more temples in the Kyoto area than you'd ever want to...read more
