A Crafty, Restful Weekend

Good morning friends!  It's another Monday.  Last week wasn't great, and this whole month has been blah in general - I will blame it on winter.  The blah week culminated in my pulling my back on Friday - ARGH.  I always find it hilarious that I never pull my back while exercising, but it always happens… Continue reading A Crafty, Restful Weekend

A Quick (?) Respite Post

Good morning! Somehow it's the middle of July already, which means triple-digit weather in Texas.  My afternoon runs are completed very slowly 🙂 Keeping busy over here.  The same day I made my last post, my husband got a job offer.  We were over the moon!  It was to a really cool city.  We purchased… Continue reading A Quick (?)

A Cozy Bird Original – “Dreamers” Embroidery Piece

Do you ever hear a song that reminds you of your past, with such force that you feel like you've returned to a version of your younger self?  My friends call this phenomenon a "mental flavor," an audible trigger that briefly transports you back in time. It happened to me several weeks ago, when I… Continue reading A Cozy Bird Original – “Dreamers” Embroidery Piece
