Find a Piece of Outlander at Britex Fabrics

Have you ever found yourself exploring a new city and then become awestruck by an unexpected finding?  That is what happened to me on my most recent trip to San Francisco, California.  This trip was meant to be a getaway to a big city, introducing my children to all the joys of San Francisco.  I relished the opportunity to share my favorite activities and expose them to new experiences.   From cable car rides to appreciating architecture and art – we found ourselves making memories that would last a lifetime!  However, it was our interest in exploring a quaint street in the heart of Union Square that led me to one of my most memorable experiences.  I found myself facing the back entrance to the world-renowned Britex Fabrics!

Jamie’s Greek Comes in Handy with Mizithra: A Blog About One of My Favorite Recipes

“I may be able to link just about everything back to Outlander. Some posts, like this one, may not have anything to do with Outlander, but I still want to share it with you. It lends itself to a meal that can be made with kids’ help, adding quality time with family.

A Cherished Moment With Terry Dresbach

Who motivates you?  I find myself constantly inspired by many people around me, as well as the creative minds behind the authenticity of Outlander itself.  From costumes to set design, I continue to be amazed by their innovation, drive for their craft, and their willingness to share their vision and inspiration of specific pieces with fans.

Watching the process from afar has been a pleasant journey.  However, when I had the opportunity to meet someone I greatly admire, I was filled with excitement that was beyond words.  Needless to say, I struggled to maintain my composure during a brief conversation with one person who absolutely moves me:  the beautiful and talented Terry Dresbach.

The Making of Outlander with Tara Bennett and Script Writers – Pasadena, California

To some people, we may seem a bit fanatic, especially to those who have not read or watched the Outlander Series.  We amaze ourselves, at times, for the lengths we go through just to attend an Outlander event.  Although Sass3 attended Tara Bennett’s book signing of The Making of Outlander (about 350 miles away in Scottsdale, Arizona) back in November, we found ourselves, again, taking yet another journey to see her – all in the name of Outlander! We made a second trip to Pasadena, California, (and purchased an additional book) for one more autograph session.  We can never grow tired of Outlander – yeah, we’re a bit fanatic!

Favorite Moments Of 2016

As we close 2016, we decided to take a moment to appreciate the positive experiences this year has offered us.  As three professional women, with families, we balance work, busy schedules, and taking time to go out and experience all that the Outlander fandom has to offer.  We have loved our time going to Outlander events, as there is no better way to get through Droughtlander than being with others who have your same addiction.  Sharing our adventures in all things Outlander was our motivation to start this blog.  We have enjoyed having a place to talk about our love for the books, author, show, cast, and crew.   As we begin the festivities to celebrate the new year, we wanted to take time to reflect on our favorite memories of 2016.  Come take a look at some of our favorite moments!
