In Norse mythology, the Kraken is a large beast of the sea. The myth probably originates from a giant squid spotted in the waters then it was written about and there were stories relayed through song, however it has in recent years become a part of pop culture, having been featured in several major motion pictures.

When we talk of elves, I always think of Tolkien’s elvish warriors with their beautifully made weapons and the grace with which they fought, making a battle scene look almost like a dance. My children and I love the movies, of course, but we also have spent many an afternoon curled up listening to the audio book.

Chewbacca has become a pop culture icon in recent years. The subject of many great costumes, toys, and debates. Even among my own friends, someone will occasionally “speak Wookie” in an attempt to get a chuckle from the others (and its not always me!). If you follow me on Instagram then you might have noticed that even my puppy has a Chewbacca winter coat.

Living an Adventurous Life (on a TIGHT budget)

I’ve lived in many different places- small towns, big cities. Michigan, Oklahoma, United Kingdom, Colorado, Illinois, Wisconsin, etc..

It is always the same.

Everywhere I’ve lived the locals tell me it is the “most boring place in the world” and there “isn’t much to do in the area.”

There is always fun to be had. (more…)
