I do, too. Life things happened, really important life things that needed all of my energies - creative and otherwise. And though it feels really hard right now, other things are so much more clear to me in my writing practice than they were two years ago. Xxoo +C

Quinny and I comparing grocery lists. His is to make "sweet salad" with bags of candy and berries. Mine is a bit more reasonable. Sometimes, when trying to re-find your groove, or set forth on a new endeavor (or, honestly,... Continue reading

We've had several big shifts in our day-to-day lately, with new jobs and new rhythms, and I've been wanting to come here, but keep misplacing the time. It's all starting to steady, though, to settle, so time shall be found... Continue reading

This I will admit: I'm a bit of an anglophile. I knit, clean, cook, fall asleep to Hugh and Jamie and Nigella. My dream vacation is an auto tour of the (fictional) Midsomer. Why? For a long time, I didn't... Continue reading
