Joyful January?

So, obviously, I didn’t write every day this month. And writing is one of those things that bring me joy, but that doesn’t mean I have to write a lot to find joy in it, right? I did plenty of other things that brought me joy this month: I exercised every day! I followed the…

I’m not brave

When I read this morning’s prompt I didn’t think I had anything to contribute to the topic. The prompt was “How are you brave?” I wouldn’t describe myself as brave at all. I’ve lived much of my life being afraid to take chances. Afraid to look stupid, or silly. The only real change I relished…

Music Fridays: Let’s Catch Up

It’s been a minute! The other day I was wondering about the fact that I’ve been getting a lot of likes on some older posts despite not having written anything in a while. I don’t think there’s any correlation, but it did make me wonder if I should post more regularly or less regularly. Anyway,…

The Sunday Post: 2 Weeks

It’s been a hot minute since you last heard from me. Hey, I’ve been busy! I have a quiet afternoon lined up for the rest of the day, so I thought I would take advantage and check in here. We have less than two weeks until the big wedding and about ten days until my…

The Sunday Post: Deck Thoughts

We’re looking at houses today. I know, I know…but we’re not planning to make an offer or try to buy any of these houses. We’re just looking. But I’ll back up a little bit. Yesterday morning S came over for breakfast. It started as a joke, I guess when he texted me Friday night and…

Music Fridays: Hypotheticals

Happy Friday! Dry July is over! I had the pleasure of S’s company for a little while yesterday now that he’s feeling better and through the quarantine period. He returned to work today and we have a dinner date tomorrow night. He’s mentioned once or twice that he’d like to talk about how we felt…
