About Me

My photo
Behind Every Cloud is a Kindred Spirit (BECKS)I lost my grandfather when I was 17. I had a VERY difficult time getting over it. How could I still communicate with him? I loved him so much I didn't think I could live without him. I read everything I could get my hands on to do with the "afterlife" and that started it all...the love of Ghost Hunting and the Paranormal. I have been researching the paranormal for over 37 years!! It is my way of staying in touch with my grandfather. Being a Ghost Hunter is not always as exciting as it seems on TV. Many nights I have sat in the dark and not a thing happened. BUT it is those times you DO get that one voice, that one explainable picture or have an experience that sends chills down your back that makes it sooo worth it all!!! My purpose of this blog is not to make people believe in ghosts but maybe to open their minds just a little bit... I LOVE this crazy thing called Ghost Hunting. It is as much a part of me as breathing. I am just a girl that refuses to accept we can't still contact our loved ones after they die. My grandfather won't let me.


The Driskell in Austin, Tx-7-2011 (little girl)

There is a story documented in history in which the young girl of a popular Senator of the time met her fate while chasing a ball along the “Grand” staircase in the hotel. This occurred in the year of 1887. It was reported a week after her death that she was up and playing at the hotel with her little ball. This incident was actually the first recording of the paranormal at the rumored haunted Driskill Hotel.

We stayed at the Driskill in Austin just last weekend and LOVED it!  There are soooo many stories about this hotel.  It is said to be THE most active Haunted Hotel in Texas.  Well, there were certainly lots of people trying to see if that were true.  I went out after midnight to do my own investigation and had to avoid several "ghost tours".  The above pic has one of the only orbs I was able to get.  But it is on the staircase where a little girl supposedly lost her life.  The is one of the most beautiful hotels I have ever seen!!! It is "pricey" but it is worth it.  Go check out this really cool hotel.  You won't be disappointed.
