Oh, Dear Reader. What has become of us?* . . . Let me just start by saying that I’m not perfect. Not even close. I leave clothes in the dryer, sometimes for days on end. I obsessively worry the TV is too loud, and ask my husband ad nauseum to turn it down. I barely…
Breathe it in. . . . And sometimes, with just the stirring of a springtime breeze through an open window, life seems so delicately beautiful. . . . SnapDragon is a writer who utterly enjoys stacks of unused notebooks. Follow Snippets of SnapDragon for her take on this crazy world.
500 and Counting, Yo.
Woah! Maybe Snap’s got something to say after all? (she shrugs and smiles) . . . Hey hey hey! I got notified by the WordPress fairies that I have over 500 followers! I feel like a cool kid! Like the belle of the ball! Like. . . the world is my friggin’ oyster, yo! (whispers:…
Hi. . . . Hello there, Dear Reader. Whoever and wherever you are, love. How magical it is that we’re meeting here in cyberspace. Complete strangers, living our little lives. Perhaps we’re a continent or two apart. Or maybe we’re neighbors unbeknownst. Yet we’re in each other’s homes, in each other’s lives. Here. Now. And…
Just a Little Hello.
(smiles and waves) . . . Hello, Dear Reader. And greetings from our Sweet-Baby Berkshire RV! The SnapDragon Family is nearing a week on the open road, and well, it’s been a rainy one. But that shall not dampen our spirits! We’ve seen bits and pieces of this country—the tiniest samplings of the American southeast—and…
Good morning, sweet ones. I’m sneaking in a quiet moment, as Baby Snap is upstairs snuggling with Papa. (Or, more likely, kicking him in the face with his adorable baby feet.) I left the “ambient ocean sounds” playing here in the kitchen, because, well, I like it. Anyway, as I’ve been on break for the…
Psst! A Word, Please.
Hello, Dear Reader. I’d like to take a moment to reflect. On life as a new mom? No. On how dish-washing gloves are my new prized possession? It’s true, but no. On how American society is eerily similar to the movie Idiocracy? Not today. (But stay tuned. Or, just look for the understated theme in…
The Open Window.
Goooooooood mornin’! I hope this finds you well, Dear Reader. The sun is shining here in southeast Pennsylvania. Yesterday’s raindrops sparkle in the breeze. And a fresh pot of coffee is at the ready. May is here! And you know I’ve already flipped the crisp page on my moose calendar. Fresh start, yo. . .…
The 100 Day Project.
Snap decides to get her shizzz together. You know I love a fresh start. And today is the start of The 100 Day Project. (she gives herself a high five in the mirror) Last year I had every intention of starting this project, and well. . . let’s just say I went to the mailbox…
I love to sing. So, so much. Yet I was extremely bashful about doing so for the first–oh–seventeen years of my life or so. I still get self-conscious if I know people are listening; if I’m put on the spot I usually clam up and my voice sounds smaller somehow, slightly pinched. I sound my…
