West bound and into a ghost town.

On today’s edition of Tookish Travels, Brandon and I take our first Roadkill inspired road trip to the mountains of North Carolina   and   SPOILER ALERT…it’s a complete success.   Take a look!! *****   Now we’ve been talking cars since we met because a)…

Concerning Hobbits

When I started this challenge, I had NO idea (because I didn’t read ahead), that two of my favorite tracks would be back to back and I am thrilled to be taking on this one today! Hobbits are my very, very, very favorite race…

The Wonderful Thing about Lizzie

If you follow me on Instagram (@onwanderwoodlane) you will already know the subject of the post because I @ her A LOT!!!   We became friends YEARS ago via our various, mutual fandoms and haven’t looked back since! I admire so much about her…
