I am a stubborn person. About most things. I'm not that stubborn about housework. I figure it will get done however it needs to get done. Which is to say: I don't care how the dishwasher gets loaded. Just that... Continue reading

The Monday after my birthday our furnace died. Sort of. It would work, but when the furnace repair folks came to take a look at it? They told us explicitly that using it was dangerous until it was fixed. Let... Continue reading

Okay, so life lately has just been a bit on the busy side. We've had a lot of snow for March. Like, oh, a lot. Last night I think we got four inches, maybe five, and places south of where... Continue reading

So, I owed you this post a few days ago but our furnace died so, while it's a bit late, I hope you enjoy! Going into this post, it feels a bit navel-gazey. Please don't be surprised if that pops... Continue reading

So I turned 29 on Friday. And going into Friday? I didn't really care so much about my birthday. I had to work. It was cold. It was - at least Thursday night - another day. But then the 20th... Continue reading

So lately, I've been working four ten-hour days each week. Which means I have three days off. You might think that two of those days would be Saturday and Sunday, but right now I'm only taking one day off during... Continue reading

I've kept a journal pretty much since I was twelve. My blogging has been an extension of that for a while, but ever since deciding I was going to do One Little Word the amount of journaling I've done on... Continue reading

An alternate title for this post could be "Valentine's Day Fingernails" or "Pinterest and Hearts in Nail Polish." But really, it's all about wearing your heart - or a heart or many hearts - all on your fingernails. (Also please... Continue reading

I know, a post on Friday morning. Who am I? A woman who has been caught in the throes of the busy trap for a few weeks and just now surfaced. That's who. So now, I'm sort of playing catch-up... Continue reading

The title of this blog post may be a little misleading. But I'm starting a new semi-regular feature on my blog about things I do that make my day-to-day life better. Or more fun. Or just what I do day-to-day... Continue reading

I don't remember exactly when it was that I decided I wanted to do a December Daily album in 2014. But I know that I started collecting all sorts of things to use within the album probably by August of... Continue reading

The past few years, I've chosen words in lieu of resolutions. This year isn't really much different, except that I decided at the end of 2014 to participate in Ali Edwards' One Little Word. Why? To be able to spend... Continue reading

Well. It's 2015! Happy New Year, friends! 2014 was a big year. In many ways. Two of my closest friends had babies - really really adorable babies. I bought a car. I got a pixie cut. I started a new... Continue reading

It's a bit odd to be talking about Christmas the day before New Year's Eve. But I am. Because that's how I roll. But after a pretty hectic and chaotic month, and a sort-of-busy Christmas Eve, our Christmas Day? Was... Continue reading

I want to wish all of you, my friends, a very Merry Christmas! May you enjoy today with your friends, families, and loved ones, where ever you might be! Continue reading

It's Christmas Eve and all I can think about is just how homey my living room feels. How the lights make it warm. And cozy. How I keep watching Rankin/Bass Christmas Movies because they remind me of childhood. And then... Continue reading

So, on Monday I waxed poetic about the holiday season, and today? I'm going to do just a bit more gushing. Because it's the first night of Hanukkah, and in my living room right now is a Christmas tree and... Continue reading

Okay, so I love the holiday season. I love the lights. The colors. How cozy and warm everything looks and feels (like seriously, guys, Christmas lights and Hanukkah candles? Bright and warm!). And I mean, when you find a cake... Continue reading

Is this where I tell you that the past two weeks have been an object lesson for me in making life work? Or is this where I tell you that I got a new job and today was my first... Continue reading

I don't often talk about where I grew up, or where I went to college. But today I really do feel I should. I need to. Why? Because on Sunday, several business in my hometown were damaged - one beyond... Continue reading

So, the first time I heard this song, I swear I thought the radio personality said "Bacon for thread," which would be apt, because it's an alt song. But it made very little sense for it to be called that.... Continue reading

Friday night, we made our way to the riverfront in Cincinnati to see Bastille play live at US Bank Arena. We orignally bought tickets to see them play at a smaller venue in Northern Kentucky, but they ended up selling... Continue reading

So far in this series, we've discussed invitations and the food. Today? Let's talk drinks, because what is a party without something refreshing to enjoy with your guests? Drinks can be a bit tricky, because it's too easy to fall... Continue reading

I hope you'll forgive me for not having a photo of this beer in a glass. I drank it straight from the can, after dark, and enjoyed it immensely. Like, really seriously immensely. Well, I had some of it in... Continue reading

This week has been one where I've just felt hella nostalgic. So I'm reaching back into the music archives this week for one of my all-time favorite songs from an all-time favorite band: Arcade Fire. We saw this incredibly talented... Continue reading
