Small Adventures

I've been feeling hopeful lately. Maybe it's because I finally broke down and started reading FiveThirtyEight again after swearing off polls forever in 2016. Maybe it's the warmth and coziness of the season, as the leaves fall and the days get shorter. I've spent so much time dreading a pandemic winter, but now? If it… Continue reading Small Adventures

Three Things – Self Care Edition

It's a sad and scary time right now in the States. I voted last week and it was a respectful experience. Just a short line, everyone wore masks. I cast my ballot for Biden/Harris...and now we just sit. And wait. I hope you all are safe and are practicing lots of self-care. I hope you… Continue reading Three Things – Self Care Edition

Camping in Hoosier National Forest

Since the start of the pandemic, I've been fighting a lot of restlessness. One of my goals for the year was focusing more on travel before the next phase of my life.

You Can’t See the Morning, but I Can See the Light

Hello friends. How is it nearly October? I feel like March and April were two years long, and as we settle in this weird routine, time is slipping through my fingers. That's a good thing.

Mildly Optimistic

Hello friends! I hope you are safe and well. It's hard to believe it's almost the end of August. I am currently in the midst of another August 31st deadline (how is it nearly the end of another fiscal year?!)

It’s That Little Souvenir of a Terrible Year

Good morning friends! Oh, how is it already August? The days are both very long and short. I can't believe another client deadline of 8/31 is nearly here but on the other hand - did my brother really get his kitten only three weeks ago? I thought he had her for two months now. What… Continue reading It’s That Little Souvenir of a Terrible Year
