Learning to Slow Down

I lived fast for a lot of years…parties, after-parties, concerts, going to work on no sleep. I’ve discovered in the last decade that fast living is not my natural rhythm. Or at least it’s not now, but maybe it never was. I like to contemplate, to daydream, to ponder. Covid slowed me down even more […]

Life Lately

Welcome, welcome, welcome! Life is really just crazy. I’ve been searching for writing jobs because that’s what I love to do. I did get a contract with study.com awhile back but the pay was out of proportion to the amount of work. I did, however, learn a lot about SEO and inclusive writing. Now is […]

Trouble Sleeping

Laying in bed in the dark reading The Art of Non-Conformity with my love sleeping beside me. It’s been a whirlwind. Mere months ago we picked up and moved to Oregon just outside of Portland. It was a crazy idea but we desperately needed a big change. The trip here was harrowing. It feels like […]

Springtime in Oregon

Spring has begun nicely here in Oregon. It’s our first Spring here. It hasn’t snowed at all since we moved here but it rains a lot. I adore the rain. It is so green here with pink trees blowing the petals all over our complex, white spots of pollen on the sidewalks, and pretty green […]

Springtime and Blog Changes

Spring is a little early in Oregon. I’m used to snow being possible through May so I love that snow is less common here. There’s still a bit of coolness in the air but overall it’s very nice. I can’t wait until we can go to the beach. I haven’t been to a beach in […]

Catch Up…

Oh my gosh, there is so much to tell you. My little family and I have moved from Colorado to Oregon with a 2 month pit stop in Texas to stay with Jason’s Mom. We are just outside of Portland in a nice 2 bedroom apartment in a lovely neighborhood. We are still finding our […]

New Year’s Eve

This New Year’s Eve is my little family’s first full day in Oregon. We’re ringing in 2022 (probably by sleeping) in a hotel room waiting on approval for an apartment. Too many bad vibes and bad memories where we used to live. We needed a fresh slate, new views, new opportunities. We’re excited. 2021 wasn’t […]

Finding Calm in a Crazy World

You’ve seen it. You’ve experienced it. The world has gone mad. There is a light in it though if we focus on our own little corner of the world. We may not have much control over the world out there but in our home, we are kings and queens. We can control our own homes […]
