Work at home.

Yesterday was a lazy day for me. I was able to get some house chores done including getting the kitchen straightened out. It looks so open and nice now that we don’t have a countertop microwave anymore and I can move some bulky items into the corner where it used to be. I even swept […]

Wish For.

The weather has been nice this week. Warm, a remembrance of the summer past. A last goodbye before the cold sweeps across the barren fields. I was never a fan of winter, or even fall. The chill always settles more easily into me for some reason, cloaking my body and robbing my breath of its […]

Cold.

I’ve been stuck on writing ideas lately. If you’re wondering why there’s a sudden influx of photography posts, this would be why. I’d rather post a pretty picture than ramble on about a topic that I don’t feel too passionate about. And sometimes a pretty pictures says more than words ever could. If you heard […]

What’s in a Name?

So the last couple months I’ve been working on changing my name. A lot of people have told me “Good luck” when they found out I got married and was planning to change my name. It made me a little nervous because I thought the whole process would be difficult. Surprisingly, that wasn’t the case. […]

Why You Should Write Consistency.

I’ve been writing more regularly recently. Why am I doing this? It’s simple, really. Because if I keep writing, then my momentum picks up and it’s easier to write every day. When I stop writing, it’s harder to write. When I don’t write, it’s easier just to say, “Oh, I don’t/can’t write today, I’ll just […]

A Day of Swimming.

Yesterday Adam and I went swimming at a local campground. We went to check it out before and thought we should go out and swim there at some point, so that’s what we did. The water felt good, as it was one of the hottest days this weekend. The water was very green and felt […]

Marital Bliss

We’ve been married for a month today and it’s hard to believe that it’s been that long. I feel like it was only yesterday that it all happened. Since the new year of last year, my life has been nothing but positive and blessed. I can’t imagine my life being anything but happy and full. […]

Pablo, the Husky Shepherd.

With the world in upheaval, it’s comforting to focus on the simple pleasures of life instead of the big picture. We adopted our dog two and a half weeks ago from the local humane society. His name’s Pablo and he’s a little over two years old. They told us he was a mix between a […]

Melody.

The music swells and my feet tap against the floorboards. The tingling feeling moves up through my legs, my arms, my head, my soul. My hands, most unwillingly begin to move and press against each other like tambourines, creating the sound and beat to their music. I get up and twirl around as I clap, […]

A cabin in the woods.

Because Valentine’s Day fell on a Friday this year, the weekend was full of plans and getaways. Friday night, Adam came down and we went out to eat at Bravo, an Italian restaurant. We had margarita flatbread as our starter, then a sausage ravioli and spaghetti and meatballs for our main menu. We brought home […]
