A New Season

Good morning friends! I hope you are all doing well! I haven't posted in awhile. Multiple reasons - work was simultaneously making me stressed and sad while also being very slow, I was working on a frustrating C2C crochet project that I kept having to frog, and just general fatigue. Last week was my anniversary… Continue reading A New Season

Happy 2021

Happy New Year all! I hope you had a cozy winter break. Ours was good. I definitely felt sad at points - we ended up not going on our camping trip (which was the right decision) and we missed our families.

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

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

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
