I am trying to like winter, but winter is not cooperating. I created a board on Pinterest called Winter Stuffs a few months ago because I was doing soul homework and feeling optimistic. I hate winter and I can't pinpoint when that began because when I was younger I didn't mind it. When I was… Continue reading Things to Make Winter Not Suck (A lot Of This Is Gonna Be Food)
I am friends with all the people I met at this conference, to this day. I loved this experience so much.

When my friend Shannon called me last fall inquiring if I wished to go to the Erma Bombeck Writer’s Workshop in the spring, it intrigued me.
I remember Erma Bombeck from my childhood. My mom and grandma would watch her on Good Morning America. They bought her books and chuckled at her newspaper columns.

Backstory- I was creating graphics for my blog on Canva (a site with a ton of free DIY graphics) when I see just nonsensical situations played out within those graphics.
And I was all “I COULD CREATE THE BEST (and by best I mean worst) GRAPHICS WITH TERRIBLE (and by terrible I mean magnificent) WORDS ON THEM”.
Friends, I have a shit-ton of work to do. Like, paid work. Sitting in the hopper waiting for me to work on it.
But this is so much more fun!
A new year. A new administration. Let’s kick off the newness with a glorious song to bask in with lyrics that match our fresh start. I found this song a few days after I entered menopause. I was watering my plants in the kitchen when this song came on my Spotify. I took notice of… Continue reading Screw It, I’m Eating Tater Tots- Episode 22 (Looks Like We Made It, Barry Manilow)
That’s the understatement of the century. Normally, bloggers like to make an end of the year wrap-up to review what took place over the previous 12 months. Do YOU want to discuss it? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h9bxHt7yDMo Even though it was a tough year, there were some milestones reached in my world. I turned 50 in… Continue reading What a Year
