I have a lot of dear friends from when I used to go to church. To save you time, I won’t talk about religion or my views on it, but I was reading what one of them said recently, and I was awestruck by the power behind the words they used.    I guess I […]

What do I want to do with my life?

This question is becoming the bane of my existence. You will more than likely get a different response based on who you speak with, but what I am finding is that overall you will get  the same general response: “What makes you happy?” That answer, I would wager, is the problem to my question. A […]

Butterbeer cupcakes

A few things: My life has been hectic. I do have a list, its not finished, but I felt that it deserved more time than I was giving it…I’m also lying and I’m just a slacker. I have a list, its not finished, but its because I started it and was distracted. I went home, […]

Resolutions of Ice Cream

I thought it was just a little whale container at first, then Chris noticed the measuring cups that went inside. I almost passed out. […]

My descent into mindfulness

Roller coaster doesn’t even begin to describe what happens to your emotions when you are unemployed. All self sufficiency pulled out from underneath you, and just going to the grocery store can be a depressing task. The thing that could potentially make you feel worse about your situation, is if you’ve moved far away from […]

Mountain Vs. Me

Chris has presented me with a challenge. Yosemite. I am, to be frank, TERRIFIED. I don’t’ do heights. The last mountain I climbed with him I thought would be the end of it. I love the feeling, the rush of getting to the top, but not of looking down. Again, I DON’T do heights. I […]
