Sioux Falls South Dakota things to do

Sometimes the best stuff is right in front of you and you don’t notice it. I’ve always wondered how those relationships that start as friends and end up as lovers work. You know, the kind where you are friends for years, and then suddenly one day you look at this person and have different feelings […]

I’m coming to you from 30,000 feet for this update! I spent the last month slowing down and enjoying the holidays in the Midwest with family and now I’m headed to back to NYC for 10 days to the bustle of the city. I hit the ground running this weekend by speaking at the New […]

Sunset south dakota snow

Happy 2015!  My first Week Instagram Review of the year is pretty subdued as I have been enjoying a slower pace in South Dakota over the holidays.  We spent New Year’s Eve playing cards, eating a crock pot meal, and watching television.  The slowest New Year’s Eve I spent in a long time.  I won’t […]

South Dakota Prairie

Each week brings some new scenery and location for me – that’s just the way I like it. If you want to follow where I am real time – then each Friday I will post 5 of my Instagram photos from the current week. Some weeks I may be traveling somewhere exotic, and some weeks […]

My mailbox

I turned onto the gravel covered Main Street and thought – technically – this is my home. There is an unpaved street called Main Street, a bar, a restaurant, a few prefab homes, railroad tracks, and a rundown playground that could use a new coat of paint. There’s not even a church or a school […]

My Foreign Christmas

December 25, 2009 6 Comments »

This Christmas was shaping up to be one of my favorites.   After living abroad alone last year,  I had planned to spend Christmas with my mom and dad in South Dakota.  My whole family is spread out in the Midwest and it rarely happens that we are all in the same place due to my […]

Traveling circus south dakota

As a kid, I never saw a circus. I skipped right from playing circus games/acts with my older brother in our front yard (which landed me in the emergency room), straight to Vegas and seeing Cirque de Soleil performances. I never saw a ‘real’ circus, the kind with a big top, elephants, trapeze families, and […]

South Dakota Rodeo

One day left on my South Dakota road trip family vacation. I survived two days of road tripping with my parents, and so far I concluded that I may need therapy after this. We decided to finish off our South Dakota extravaganza by getting in some exercise, some oddities, and some cowboys. Hiking South Dakota’s […]

Custer State Park

Photo: Buffalo lounging in the prairie grass The signs were everywhere on our way to Custer State Park South Dakota. In Pierre, along the interstate, near Rapid City, in small towns…the silhouette of a buffalo and some scripted writing with an arrow pointing the direction of “Dances with Wolves Filming Site”. I haven’t seen the […]

Bad Lands National Park

Que the song “Holiday Road”, load up the family truckster, and head to Wally World. I recently watched National Lampoon’s Vacation again. It had been years since I had seen the Griswalds take off for Wally World, still a classic movie that strikes a chord with me thanks to some similar family vacations I took […]
