2023 Goals

Today was my third New Year’s Day in my new home. Well, it’s hardly a “new” home at this point. Or, maybe it is. Technically, I’ve been here for just over two years, but I have yet to finish unpacking. How about we compromise and call it newish? So, today … Continue reading →

2022: Year in Review

It seems that nearly every time I’ve sat down to write here on the ol’ blog in the last couple of months, something has gotten in the way. I have untouched ideas and unfinished drafts that I hope to get to at some point. But, it has been a busy … Continue reading →

Thirty-Eight

As I was walking back from the mailbox at the end of the drive last week, I stopped to take in the view (shown in the image above). The sky was breathtaking. My photo really doesn’t do it justice. For a moment, all was right with the world. I was … Continue reading →

2022 Goals

As I like to do every January 1, I am posting my goals for the new year. Over the past few years, I have had some hits and misses. However, I have always felt like I made good on my promise to pursue any first-of-the-year plans shared here on the … Continue reading →

2021: A Year of Art

The Christmas Tree

One of the things I have always wanted was a great big Christmas tree in my own home. Over the years, as an adult, there has always been something that stood in the way of that happening …

2021 Goals

As I look back on the past year, it is hard to believe everything that happened. I am a proud owner of a new home that sits on 2.5 acres of land. I have worked as a full-time writer at WP Tavern for over a year. Plus, so many other … Continue reading →

2020: Counting My Blessings

I thought 2019 was a whirlwind of a year. 2020 decided to blindside us all, right? No year in review post can be written without mentioning the COVID-19 pandemic, at least in passing. As much as I hate what has happened to so many families this year, it has been … Continue reading →

Thirty-Six

13,149. That’s the number of days I have been living and breathing on this world thus far. In years, that number is 36. Happy birthday to me. I recently saw a tweet from someone announcing they had reached their 15,000th day. That particular message resonated with me. Why do we … Continue reading →
