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

A Little Bit of Sunshine

Happy weekend, friends! Wednesday was a wonderful day. I know there won't be overnight changes now that Biden is in office, but I've been feeling optimism about the pandemic (and life in general) for the first time in a very long time.

A Quick Catch-Up Post

Good morning friends! I hope you are well. I'm doing okay. Still on the coronacoaster and, like anyone, have good and bad days with it. Lately I've been feeling pretty overwhelmed by work, and haven't had a lot of mental energy to deal with much else. I've been drawn to simple, cozy projects at nights… Continue reading A Quick Catch-Up Post

FO – Yoga Pants

The past several weekends, I've woken up feeling sad. Not wanting to be idle, I decided to find an activity that I could lose myself in. Something meditative and soothing, but an activity that I could finish faster for instant gratification. Enter sewing. I've documented my sewing attempts on and off the past several years… Continue reading FO – Yoga Pants
