Two Years

Yesterday marks two years that me and the Beau has been together. It feels like we've been together for way longer than just two years. I feel like we've been together for a life time already. I suppose that's a good thing too? We celebrated by going to Denali for a rafting trip, then swinging […]

Trying That Plan Thing

I think one of the things I've been struggling with (especially when it comes to fulfilling my "post twice" a week goal) is a lack of proper planning. Back in the day it was super easy for me to just plan out topics for interest areas and keep going from there. I haven't really made […]

August Goals

I'm going to see if I can actually make this happen this time around. I'm still feeling like I'm in a funk, but I don't feel like grey clouds are hanging over me either, so I'm taking it as a positive sign. So just a few goals: 1. Blog twice a week. 2. Work out […]

I Despise Lemonade

For the last three days I've been dealing with some serious migraine issues. Pretty sure though, as of today at least, that it's allergy related. The headache itself is now under control, but I still have this dull throbbing, now finally centralized over the left side of my face. I also learned the other week […]

Hopes and Dreams

This last week was a long week. I had back to back meetings and then our major programmatic meeting at the end of the week. Thankfully, Friday wrapped up early (by noon) and I was able to take care of a few in office things and kind of unwind for a bit. I've also taken […]

Day 26

It's been a busy couple of days. I'm 34 years old. My sister came into town (and is still here). I'm tired and want to sleep. Oh boy. We have some things to do tomorrow and then we're doing a short trip out of town. Then relaxing the rest of the weekend until Sis flies […]

Day 20

I was going through and cleaning up some files. I've used My Writing Spot for a while now as a place to jot notes down and start small writing bits. I was going through the files I had there and got caught off guard. At the beginning of this year, I had intended to write […]

Day 6

I've been thinking heavily about things I want to accomplish in the future. There's artsy things I want to do more of and there's future crafting business things I want to attempt, there's a ton of books I want to read (several self help), there's financial security in things too. It helps that I'm finally […]

Day 3

Something that hits me on multiple occasions and is sometimes unexpectedly going after only being a little over a year, is that I'm still in love. What makes this love even better is that he loves me FOR ME, not for someone he envisions me becoming. If there is anything that has become super important […]

Day 2

My sister is coming for Christmas. It's probably going to be 50 below outside and drier than all get out, but she's still coming. For nearly 2 weeks. I'm pretty excited about that. She's never visited me before so far north. Even when I was in college, we just never had a means to get […]
