April Photo Wrap-Up 2016

Hey y’all!

Here we are at the end of April. We’ve had a pretty good amount of rain but a whole lot of sunshine too! If you know me than you know I love some sun. Here’s a quick look at what I got into this beautiful month of April.



I love getting outdoors and taking in the sun. I took a nice walk after work along Riverside here in Tulsa, OK. I am making a point to get out and enjoy the outdoors and get a little more exercise before it gets unbearably hot.


David and I found this lovely couple of ducks hanging out in the yard one evening. It was kind of surprising to see them so close to a residence.


A look at Riverside Park from the other side of the river. This was the 1st time I had hung out on the paths on the other side of the river. Have you hung out there? They have a relaxing and cool vibe going on in the evenings. From food, to music, to yoga, check it out!


It’s been awhile, but David and I finally stopped in to get some good eats from our favorite sushi spot, Sushi Train located at 3300 E 51st St, Tulsa, OK 74135 next to Chilis. The food was delicious of course.


Friday Night Lights typically consist of softball! David has continued with softball for the spring. So far the team is doing pretty good. With these nice spring nights I definitely don’t mind hanging out and cheering.

Fellow Okie – Allie Paschal


I can’t begin to tell you how excited I get when I stumble upon a young entrepreneur especially when they are one of Oklahoma’s own. I found Allie Paschal, owner of Left on Elm, on Instagram.  Allie takes pieces of wood and diligently handcrafts them into personable items. Her work is unique, beautiful and worth showcasing.

  • What’s your favorite thing about Oklahoma?

I love how you’ll never meet a stranger here. Everywhere you go in Oklahoma, you find yourself talking to someone you just met like you’ve known each other for years.

  •  Compared to other places you’ve traveled, what stands out most about Oklahoma?

I’ve only lived in Oklahoma, but have traveled quite a bit. Compared to other places, I think Oklahoma just has more of a casual and laid back vibe. People here are always selflessly looking to help each other out in whatever way they can.

  • Tell me a little bit about your organization or company.

Left on Elm creates custom handmade home décor pieces primarily made from reclaimed wood. Custom pieces, personalized gifts and oversized reclaimed wood Oklahoma signs are what Left on Elm is known for.

  • What are your goals for the company or organization?

At the moment, custom orders have taken up most of my time so I haven’t been able to mass produce signature pieces as much as I would like. But, I’ll be adding a few regular pieces that will be regularly available. I’m also looking into a few local shops that fit well with Left on Elm to regularly carry products.  My passion will always be creating things that are special to those that receive them and I hope to be able to continue doing so for as long as I can!

  • How can others help you achieve your goals?
