Little Boy

*DISCLAIMER: if you are of the belief that the loss of a pet is “no big deal”, stop reading.* In the last two and a half weeks, I’ve thought a few times about writing about the death of my little boy Charlie. I thought I’d write about how I’ve come to accept it. About how … More Little Boy

I’ve lost 20 pounds in the last 7 weeks. Wow. Writing that sentence makes me feel a lot of feelings. The reality is, I’m not actively trying to lose weight (I know, I know, you avid dieters do not want to hear that). I’ve been wanting to shed more than a few pounds and look … More Life’s a Journey

It’s a DIY Christmas

This past week I put up my tree, complete with the DIY ornaments I’ve been working on for a few weeks now. I got a lot of positive responses  and questions on how I made each kind of ornament, so I figured I’d let y’all know how I pulled this off! (Bonus: Everything I put on … More It’s a DIY Christmas
