Halloween Shenanigans

How was everyone’s Halloween? Mine was decent, we finally carved a couple of pumpkins that we grew ourselves. We then got some lights to put in it. Then we put some spooky music on and watched The Village, which isn’t all that scary but had some interesting concepts to think about. My love didn’t think […]

I dislike the new wordpress post editor…

I know I’m complaining, but I feel like I’m not the only one who has so much struggle. In fact, I read another blog post with the person saying s/he was having the same problems. I’d link the post here, but I can’t remember where I read it now. WordPress forced me to change to […]
