Forward Momentum

Happy Sunday, all! How has it already been nearly a month since I've posted? Ugh. I've been doing well. I took the week of July 5th off. I was so burned out at work and really needed a break (plus, the 5th is my birthday!) We did a couple of hikes on the 4th and… Continue reading Forward Momentum

Bloom Where You’re Planted

Tonight I took my last creative nonfiction class through the Indiana Writers Center (through Zoom, of course). It was a wonderful, warm group. We shared our vulnerability and sadness through our stories. When the pandemic ends, I look forward to meeting up with my classmates in person. This writing class was a bright spot in… Continue reading Bloom Where You’re Planted

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. I started strong with a trip to San Francisco, then found myself in lockdown weeks later. It's a privileged thing, really, and sadder… Continue reading Camping in Hoosier National Forest

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! I think I finally realized things won't be back to normal soon, even though it appears to be an American past time to pretend that the virus doesn't exist.… Continue reading FO – Seaside Bunting, and Other Odds and Ends

San Francisco 2020

Good morning friends! This morning, I wanted to share my San Francisco trip from February with you. It's taken me awhile to find the motivation for this post. I think I needed some time to unpack this trip, especially in light of the pandemic. I felt sad thinking about it at the beginning, but now… Continue reading San Francisco 2020

A Rambling Crafty Update

Hello friends! I don't know about you all, but it's been a crazy week.  I love my job and my projects, but often in consulting, everything just kind of falls on your desk at once and it's hard to balance everything sometimes. So anyway. Thank you all so much for your encouraging comments on my… Continue reading A Rambling Crafty Update

2018 Recap

Good morning, friends! As I type this, I am drinking coffee, have a knitting project on my lap (I needed a break from the llama amigurumi torso) and am wondering when the Twilight Zone marathon is starting (edit: it's already started, YAY!)  I can hardly believe it is already New Year's Eve. What a year.… Continue reading 2018 Recap

Trying to Stay Focused

Hello friends! Happy Halloween! This year I am copping out and wearing some kitty ears as my costume.  It is the most I am willing to dress up while at work.  I hope you all are doing well.  I'M NOT THINKING ABOUT MY TEST AT ALL.  NOPE. NOT ME.  It's not constantly eating away at… Continue reading Trying to Stay Focused
