Growth Mindset

There’s lots of growing going on over here! Emotionally. Professionally. Intellectually. And in my garden.

What I’m Into Right Now

I haven’t been able to decide what I want to write about, so I’m going to write a little bit about a few of the things I’m doing these days. It seems I’ve turned into the “woman who lives alone and goes days without leaving the house, watches birds and Ozark, dances in her living…

Music Fridays: Move

Happy Friday! It’s been a while since I shared a music post. It’s not that I haven’t been listening to music and found new (or old) music I like. It’s been mostly because when I think of it it’s not convenient to sit down and write the post, or it’s nowhere near Friday and by…

Music Fridays: Somewhere Cool with You
