Anything that matters?  It seems that my daily […]

Doing that has made December slow and easy and really lovely. For me, freelance is one of those “when it rains it pours” type of things and honestly, I’ve […]

The tomatoes went on this pasta dish and the power juice […]

Once August arrives though, whoa, things pick up at breakneck speed around here! By the time we turn the calendar to […]

If you would have told me 6 years ago that I’d be earning a decent part-time income from sharing words on the internet I never would have believed you. In fact, some of you have written lately […]

Don’t forget to enter the PayPal giveaway! Everyone loves a little extra $$$ in their PayPal account, right? On Tuesday evening I went to acupuncture. It was my first real session – the technical first being when I was in labor with Jemma and had an acute treatment, but this was a full session and […]

Popping in to share a few of my writing pieces that aren’t on my blog, but are on the internet! These could also be called “The Fruits of Mom’s Panera Escape” since that is where I tend to do most of my focused writing these days :) And, as always, thank you so much for your love […]
