We have had an Airbnb on our farm for about a year and a half and almost every guest has commented on one particular aspect of their stay. It’s not the comfortable beds or the wonderful sunsets they are mentioning. Lots of their comments say how much they liked our dog, “Howie.” Who would’ve…

Let me begin with a small confession: I bought "The Weight of Ink" by Rachel Kadish because of its beautiful cover and its intriguing title. Admittedly, the story, itself, also sounded intriguing, but the cover and title were simply too lovely to resist.

Nebraska has a rich literary history, and people all over the world have heard of Willa Cather, John Neihardt, Mari Sandoz, and Bess Streeter Aldrich. What some people fail to realize, though, is that Nebraska’s literary tradition isn’t stagnant and rooted in the past only. It is growing and…

I’m wearing red tomorrow and may wear red to bed tonight as we are going to our first ever Husker volleyball game this weekend. We are excited because we’ve been fans of the University of Nebraska volleyball team for years but have never personally seen them play. Maybe I’ll paint my face red.

Flying in a jet isn’t as fun as it used to be. We came to that conclusion after having spending too many hours in airports this past week. My husband, Tom, even went as far to say he’d drive to Florida next time rather than fly. I’m not going to agree with that statement but it made me think.
