Thorough some act of cyber-linkage you’ve landed on my blog Lemondrop on the Loose. 

A little background….

Lemondrop initially came to life on another platform in June 2012 as a way for friends to
follow my adventures while I traveled through Alaska with my family. The name came
from my husband, who frequently calls me Lemondrop because I’m sweet on the
outside, but sour on the inside. Or so, after 20+ years of marriage, he claims.
By inference…. I believe he is also claiming he has been a victim of the sour.
Just a guess.

Although I truly enjoyed the initial blog, the posts weren’t timely because the Wi-Fi was
nonexistent in all the breathtaking-yet-remote places we traveled. So, blogging
landed on my to-do list and, now…hopefully on your to-read list!

Spurred on by Blogher’s March NaBloPoMo challenge, I’ve decided to “go big,” as they
say and commit to blogging everyday for a month. Their topic this month is Self.
Beginning on March 3, we’ll think about us; what makes you you and me someone completely different. And let’s face it, who doesn’t like talking about themselves. I hope you’ll share you’re thoughts. Dialogue is definitely better than monologue. I’d love to hear from some of you. Maybe you’d like to guest blog? Let me know…

This month I’m all about creating. I’ll be working with some talented artists to
develop projects for a silent auction (which is part of a larger Parents
Association fundraising event for my kids school) to be held in April. The challenge
this year is to include cooperative art projects rom our littlest preschoolers
(crawlers to age 4) through graduating seniors in the Class of 2014. I worked
on this for the past 6 six years and it’s always challenging.

At home, I’m "March”-ing forward with Smash Booking! I love this way of
journaling/scrapbooking/listing/preserving! There’s a lot visual on the Internet,
so if you don’t know about it, check it out. It makes even the most inaugural
effort feel fabulous! 
I’ll be hosting a Smash-n-Share so do some pages and take some pictures.

That’s it for now. Remember...Try to be sweet!


  1. I love your mission, I'm a little sweet-and-sour, myself! Looking forward to the next month of posts!

  3. I too, love your mission! I personally would LOVE to read more about your travels in Alaska. It's something I've always wanted to do with my family. Do you have pictures? Please post some if you do.

    I'm looking forward to your posts this month. Have fun!

    1. Thanks Shannon! Alaska was whole family loved it. I think I'll write about it later this week. And it will give me a chance to show off a picture of me catching a HUGE pink salmon (totally out of the box of me!)
