"If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving definitely isn't for you." -Steven Wright
With the new year comes a renewed spirit to finally gain control over our lives. We vow to clean out, clean up, and make up - with our homes, our bodies, and our belongings. There is no shortage of methods, advice or reference materials to point us toward successful self-improvement and home decluttering. Hygge, Wabi-Sabi, … Continue reading Sparking Joy the KonMari Way
I'm comfortable in my own skin. Why shouldn't I be? It's not that tight of a fit. - Martha Bolton
I saw an ad for burial plots and thought to myself, "This is the last thing I need."
Hubby and I tried to make a conscious effort to limit our gift buying - especially for little missy - and we were pretty successful given the many temptations everywhere and all around.

Outdoor activities were on tap, beginning with a trip to the farmer's … Continue reading A Glorious Weekend!

If you're expecting a paddle boarding, marathon running, cherry pie eating, TART trail cheerleader, ski bunny, West Bay sailor - well, that's not me. But I do appreciate how blessed I am to live in "God's Country." Seriously - just … Continue reading 3 Things for Q4
I'll admit it. I'm obsessed. Not too long ago I discovered Gilmore Girls on Netflix. Yep. I only just made the acquaintance of Lorelai, Rory, Sookie, Luke and the others. I realize that it's been over 11 years since the seven-season show was cancelled, but somehow I missed the Stars Hollow train. It's not surprising, really. I tend to … Continue reading Oh, Those Gilmore Girls
