#FallYall… It’s On Its Way! Featuring: BOOTS

Have I ever told you that Fall is my favorite season? I am certain my great grandmother played a big part in that. I love Fall, y’all. Or as Twitter might say, #FallYall. Some reasons I warmly welcome this chilly season: • I just love the smell. There is a smell… • Crisp mornings. • […]

The Word Association Game with Jenny Chiu (VIDEO!)

There was this one time that 5 vloggers gathered together in a hotel room in San Jose. What do 5 vloggers do when they gather together in small spaces for more than 2 hours at a time? They make collab videos. (Counter clockwise from bottom, Lucrecer, Jenni, MamaKat, Jessi, and me) You may or may […]

On Vacation…

We are. Literally on vacation. And otherwise. I know maybe the internet shouldn’t know if we’re not home, but our home has not been left unattended. Nor have our dogs. I miss them, but sometimes it’s OK to have a vacation from them too. I know, my nail polish has been compromised. But I’m on […]

Good Food, Sleep, and Exercise: The Struggle is Real #thestruggleisreal

First let me say, I am not a health professional. I have never played on on TV (mostly because I am not an actress because if I was asked to play one on TV, I think I could totally pull it off but I digress), nor do I even remotely pretend to be one in […]

Writing and Not Publishing

I spent 1.5 hours on the plane yesterday writing about busy-ness. This morning, as I went to proof-read and add a photo or two and add links and make sure the Yoast SEO dot was on green… I just just couldn’t wrap it up. I have handful of posts that are still sitting in draft […]

We Saw No Vampires While Camping in Forks. But LOTS of Rain.

My family loves to camp. But it takes great effort. You know… pulling out the camping gear and whathaveyou. The act of camping, or leading up to the act takes some planning. And time. Hitherhencetofore, we don’t camp as often as we’d like. But we really do like it. That’s why I was all, “GUYS. […]

D-Day… June 6, 1944

70 years. It’s been 70 years. 29 years before I was even born… D-Day. My experience with D-Day has been through what I’ve read in books or have seen in documentaries… or classes, or news stories. Sometimes the stories grip me in a very real, deep, and sorrowful way. But most times the stories are […]

I Have Another Obsession: 2048

I do. Ish. I mean… it’s not REALLY an obsession. It’s more of something that distracts me from to-do lists. And whathaveyou. Of course they say that admitting something is the first step in overcoming something and maybe I am not quite ready to overcome. Before I tell you what I may or may not […]

Obsession Confession: Plaid Bermuda Shorts

As I was going through my summer clothes I noticed something… LOTS OF PLAID BERMUDA SHORTS. Which got me to thinking…perhaps I’m obsessed? Which gave me flashbacks of times in the stores where I ooh-and-aah over all the cute plaid bermuda shorts I see. And then I walk away because deep down I know… I […]

Snapshots. Like, literally.

You guys. I know I’ve been all, “OH WRITER’S BLOCK!” before. But it is what it is. Hitherhencetofore… SNAPSHOTS. And also when life gets crazy it gets CRAZY and sometimes all I can do to remember the day before is to scroll through my photos on my phone to see what happened. Usually it’s pictures […]
