Autumn Q&A

I saw these questions suggested for a blogger collaboration I’m doing this month for Blogtober, and while I submitted a different post, I thought these would still be fun to answer! Everyone knows Autumn and Winter are my favorite seasons – I am just meant for the cooler weather – so I can’t resist! What… Continue reading Autumn Q&A

It’s NaNoWriMo!

Hey, I’m going to keep this short, because I am just swamped. It’s National Novel Writing Month, we are just under halfway, and wow. I’m almost out of words, I think. I’m working on two pieces (it was three, but I’m letting them weed themselves out naturally), and on top of that, I’ve picked up… Continue reading It’s NaNoWriMo!

My Love Letter To Autumn

Autumn is, hands down, my favorite season. Winter is a very close second, but Autumn…it’s just perfect. Crisp, colored leaves that crunch satisfyingly when you walk on them. Cool air that falls in that perfect temperature range. Some good thunderstorms that create the perfect setting for reading scary books. Some pretty, delicate rainy days to… Continue reading My Love Letter To Autumn

Remembering 9/11

Today is the 18th anniversary of 9/11. If a baby was born on 9/11/2001, they are an adult, as of today. It’s kind of wild. 18 years since an event that is one of the definitive moments of my generation. 18 years since the NYC skyline changed. 18 years since the fear and the horror… Continue reading Remembering 9/11

It’s great being closer to a larger city (seriously, Torre Dell’Orso was small!), the house is pretty great, we LOVE all the land we have and so does Dakota. This month has been a lot of getting settled. Learning about the… Continue reading Life In Ostuni – One Month Later

Living With Depression: My Experience

There are days when I feel almost normal. Good and bad things happen, I handle them appropriately. I get some chores done, I cook, I read. I smile, I laugh, I frown. Then there are the normal days – my normal, at least, with my depression. And those days…they’re more frequent and they’re significantly harder.… Continue reading Living With Depression: My Experience

Who Am I? What’s Next (Pt. 3)

So in January, I took some personality tests to see how accurate they were and to learn more about myself, hopefully, and in February, I did the same with my astrological sign and my Chinese horoscope. The results were certainly intriguing, but now it’s time for the next step. I’ve been researching how to use… Continue reading Who Am I? What’s Next (Pt. 3)

Life with Endometriosis

Hey, it’s National Endometriosis Awareness Month, and I wanted to share my own story of endo in the hopes that it helps others understand what someone might be going through, or have another reason to advocate for themselves when things get really hard. Now, there is going to be talk of periods and such, so… Continue reading Life with Endometriosis
