January goals

– Posted in: featured

A bit late to the party, but hope I’m still fashionable :) How is everyone’s month so far, and did everyone have a nice weekend? It was pretty slow/quiet on my end; we had another cold blast in the Northeast so I tried to limit my time outdoors (I’m also still recovering from a cold) [...]

What’s up, weekend 1/5

FRIDAY, you guys. And what a long, strange week it’s been, eh? First, we’re recovering from the New Year, then we’re prepping for a bomb cyclone. There were many fun moments in between, so let’s take a moment to give gratitude. As a reminder, please don’t forget to follow and like my sistahs from other [...]

Head full of cloudy thoughts

– Posted in: featured

Sometimes you can feel the world shift. A slight change that is heavy and thick, like the molasses in a ginger snap recipe. That’s a stupid metaphor. Let’s start again. I was out with Buster last night when I looked up and saw a pretty spectacular cloud formation. Certainly not the best I’d ever seen, [...]

My word for 2018

Happy New Year, sweet readers! What did you do for NYE this year? Bryan and I celebrated with his cousin’s family, which was nice and low-key after the holiday madness. Here is a rare photo, in which we both look terrible and I haven’t quite defrosted: The year 2017 taught me many things about personal [...]

The last gratitude list for 2017! Can you believe it? I won’t bore you with the typical reflections one tends to wax poetic about at year’s end (at the very least I’ll spare you for another blog post), but I will say that it was a whirlwind of a year; one I’m not entirely sad [...]

YOU GUYS. Christmas is three days away. Or, for my Euro friends, t-minus two days until Santa eats all of the cookies! Most of the gifts are wrapped. The tree is decorated. I heard some Christmas songs on the radio this morning and I’m slowly getting into the spirit of the season. Maybe it’s the [...]

Field mice and house hunting

– Posted in: featured

Do you know the story of Frederick the Mouse? Oddly, I don’t think this is the first time I’ve mentioned it here. Essentially, this book (intended for children) focuses on a tiny little field mouse who harvests the sensations of the summer to carry him through the winter. The rays of the sun. The colors [...]

The three books you need to read before the end of 2017

– Posted in: featured

I’ve read some incredible books this year (and some I’ve already completely forgotten about). Since we are now in the final stretch of 2017 (gah!), I figured I’d share a few of my favorites. Happy reading, sweet friends! The Universe Has Your Back by Gabrielle Bernstein Here’s an overview from Amazon: In her latest book, The [...]

Well, it’s official. I’m hibernating. It’s so cold out there, you guys. I really do want to socialize and see everyone but the minute my face meets the cold air, I do an about-face and crave all the soup and blankets and warm beverages. Side note: I have a three-hour eye doctor’s appointment today (who’s [...]

Currently—the December edition

– Posted in: featured

I feel as though I share one of these a month, but as it turns out, I haven’t written a “Currently” post since October. I love getting-to-know-you lifestyle blog posts the most, and they tend to require relatively few brain cells. I think we could all use a little break, especially around the holidays, eh? [...]
