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

FO – Seaside Bunting, and Other Odds and Ends

Happy Monday, friends! How have you been? Things are good here. I thought I had this quarantine life figured out, but June was a little tough!

Memorial Day Weekend

Hello friends! If you are in the states, Happy Memorial Day. We have the day off today, which is so nice. I don't know what to do with all this unstructured time. I simultaneously want to do all the things and do nothing. I realized that I hadn't had a proper day off (not counting… Continue reading Memorial Day Weekend

WHY ISN’T IT WARM YET

I kind of struggled with a title, but here you go!  THIS IS MY TRUTH.  Hello friends! I hope you are all doing well.  The sun is shining today, which makes me so happy! The Midwest taunted me this week with two straight days of sunny, 80 degree weather, which to me is normal April… Continue reading WHY ISN’T IT WARM YET
