England: Day 4, Bletchley Park

On our fourth day, we started the day with a little Moana. Then we got dressed and hung out with Auntie Jasmin: And then we headed to nearby… Bletchley Park! Bletchley Park is, of course, the secret complex where British WWII codebreaking took place. Alan Turing was one of the main geniuses behind so much of it and then he … Continue Reading →


England: Day 3, Oxford, part 2

One of my fav books is The Royal We, written by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan (the FUG girls). It’s basically RPF (real person fic) of Kate and Wills, except it’s Bex (an American!) and Nick, and how they fall in love when she’s an Oxford exchange student.

I guess I got busy! But the pics turned out so nice, I wanted to post them! I think they were all taken by … Continue Reading →


What I Was Up To – October 2018

Moving on to October, we started out the month by going to Ron’s promotion to Lt Col in the Marine Corps. Something a long time coming, but he does such good work for the Corps, and I’m so glad they recognized him for the awesome Marine he is. The ceremony was at the Marine Corps Museum: I tried to livestream … Continue Reading →
