I will rub the sleep from my eyes and greet the morning sun. I will listen. I will ponder the power of my words before they escape. I will offer an olive branch to those who hurt me. Each day I aim to fill with quiet moments of companionship. Read to me. Play your new…

Back That Thang Up.

There’s something about seeing a bright, clean kitchen…

It’s supposed to be free from judgment, and…
365 Slices of Life.
I’ve been unemployed for a year. Woah. I’ve done a lot in that year. The Husband and I traveled abroad to Paris, Madrid, Stockholm, Helsinki, and St. Petersburg. We also visited the Pacific Northwest, Colorado, and Las Vegas. In between those adventures, we took advantage of our tri-state area status and visited off-the-chain breweries in…
