Ink spill

Things are going well. You are feeling grateful. Your heart seems happy. And then something happens that is not so good. It can be something big or something small. All of a sudden everything that seemed good only moments ago, fades away. You can’t stop thinking of this problem. This fear. This hopelessness. It’s like…

The Return

I haven’t blogged in over two years. What a crazy two years though. Covid, work from home, kids doing virtual school, the world going crazy. You name it, I could have an excuse right? I had so many reasons to stop writing. People judging me. Feeling vulnerable. Thinking that my writing isn’t good enough. Etc….

I’ve Hit the Covid Wall.

I’ve heard this phrase in a comment a while ago. I didn’t really understand what it meant. Until recently, literally overnight, everything hit me all at once. Like a ton of bricks. I was doing fine, or so I thought, until I woke up one morning with the full weight of our circumstances falling upon…

Why I Quit Blogging.

When I started my blog on September 27th 2017, I had no idea what I was doing. I blogged consistently for a year as that was my goal. I wrote 64 blog posts. Then I stopped. I told myself it was too hard. That I didn’t have the time for it. Which was partly true….

Growing up.

Less social media. Less hustling. Less hurrying. Less worrying. Less stress. Less doing. What if my something…

One Year ago.

Today is my blog anniversary. One year ago I started my blog. When I started I had no idea what I was doing or what I was getting myself into. I felt like quitting but then I had a few people tell me how much they enjoyed my blog. I have less than 100 followers…

Searching for a Passion.

I think I have a pretty good life. I like my job for the most part. I have a wonderful husband and great kids. I have some amazing friends. I am very grateful. However, I am looking for something beyond being an employee, a wife and mother. Something of my own. Something………more. For the past…

10 Things About Me.

So I have gotten a few more followers lately and I thought I would do a fun list of 10 things about me. I always like to read other people’s lists. Sometimes I find things in common with other people’s list, (especially if it’s something weird) and I don’t feel quite alone. It’s so much…

The BEST Apple Crisp Ever!

The family and I recently went apple picking and we have been baking up a storm. My husband has been making tons of apple pies to freeze and I made apple crisp. I’ve had a few people mention that they wanted the recipe. So I will let you in on my super secret (now not…
