How are you doing? It occured to me today, that a lot of people have been through the gauntlet so far this year. Some of you lost your jobs, others are affected by the ongoing turmoil in and outside America. I can't imagine how you're feeling right now, but I hope you take heart and... Continue Reading →
I like to think of a mailing list like a tree farm. If you let all the undergrowth fill up between the trees, they won't grow nearly as thick or tall. They'll always be competing with the little offshoots and filler. But if you cut away the underbrush, you can see the forest through the trees.
One thing I hope you take away from my meanderings, is to enjoy your life. Don't beat yourself up for missing the occasional deadline or falling out of habits. Sometimes, we structure our lives too much, so much that we forget how to be part of the world outside our screens. I hope you find ways to surround yourself with beauty this week.

Can y'all believe it's almost February already? This month has flown by for me. Now that I'm deep in the heart of Blackbriar Cove, my teasers will come few and far between. Because, let's be honest, there are only so many I can share without unleashing too many spoilers. So while this won't be the final issue,... Continue Reading →
Welcome to the year 2020! Or, as my friends and I have taken to calling it: "Our Year." Obviously, we aren't deluded enough to believe this. But that doesn't mean we can't claim this time in our lives. No matter the hardships that may come, or the adventures life throws our way, we will make... Continue Reading →
One week left until Christmas! One week before my son's fourth birthday (I'm possibly in denial...) Above all, one week to get my ducks in a row before the holidays descend upon us once more. I'm being dramatic. Of course I love it, even the madness. For the first time in five years, I'm spending... Continue Reading →
