Post image for The Magical Land of Yiyi & Yoyo

Well, we have concluded our time in the Austin, TX area.  We spent our time in a very special place where dinosaurs, mermaids, cheetahs and unicorns exist and co-exist: The Magical Land of Yiyi and Yoyo.   It wouldn’t be a trip to TX without thunderstorm and hail. Check! PS. If you think Matt sounds […]


The Bluebonnets seemed to have bloomed early for my birthday. I had such an unbelievably beautiful day with my beautiful family. How can one (young and youthful looking) woman be so lucky?!? ;) That’s a question for the ages, but in the mean time I’ll just keep being the beneficiary of this lucky, fun, fantastic […]

Tally Ho begins in basically the same way each year. We leave San Diego, pop in the CD that our good friend Blythe made us (a new one each year) and set our wheels toward AZ. The first official stop of Operation Tally Ho 2014 was Tubac, AZ. My Nana lives there and we go […]

I miss you. I miss you and think about you often. At first I didn’t. At first you hardly crossed my mind as we crossed the state lines. Plus, I found ways to replace you. I have 9 months of adorable love lay snuggled up sleeping beside me.  This may have something to do with […]


Post image for 3 Things I (Re-)Learned in Allen, TX

Living, learning and remembering with our Allen, TX family We often note how surreal it is that we cruise into peoples lives, click in and then click out when it’s time to Tally Ho.  Sometimes not very much has changed for those that we visit, sometimes lives have changed drastically, and some things just NEVER […]

Operation Tally Ho began as a small discussion in early 2010.   Matt and I were planning our wedding and living our “normal” lives when he stumbled upon a blog of a young guy who lived in his RV.  He asked me one day if I thought that we should do that.  ”Sure!” I said […]
