Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes

Change is inevitable. Anyone who tells you otherwise is either too young to know any better, or old enough to be blatantly lying—either to you or to themselves. Depending on who you are and what, exactly, is changing, the experience can be either a positive or a negative thing. Sometimes a positive change for one... Continue Reading →

The post that isn’t a post

Today is my regularly scheduled post day, and this time? I've got nothing. No big idea, no inspiration, nothing. It was my 28th wedding anniversary yesterday (Tim's too, which I was glad about) and we did a whole lot of nothing to celebrate. Those are sometimes the best kind of days, when we have nowhere...

Birthday season: last but not least

The weather where I live is changing into our fall season, with a burst of vibrant colors decorating the trees before we head into seemingly endless winter. October marks the last of the birthdays in our household until February, where I would love to assume that four months of rest and prep time will yield... Continue Reading →

What do we (literally) stand for?

I don't normally post inflammatory things. In fact, I studiously avoid even the appearance of inflammatory-ness on social media (yes, I just made up a word but I'm an editor so it's okay).

#WATWB When in doubt, bake!

Shared life, happy life

When I said we had a streak of birthdays from July through October, I wasn't exaggerating. You can't shake a calendar around this place without a birthday falling out. And this month, just a few days ago, my hubby celebrated a milestone birthday . . . which, for some reason, my autocorrect changed to "millstone"... Continue Reading →

Millenials ruin everything. Everything.

MILLENIALS WRECK ENTIRE WORLD: NEWS AT 11 You know, that's something I'm growing tired of reading and hearing. All my children qualify as millenials, according to the "official" dating system for these types of things. And correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure none of them (or their friends) have ruined life as... Continue Reading →

#WATWB: When community is family

This is my first official post for the We Are the World Blogfest, and I thought I'd start it out right in my own backyard. Sometimes I forget that there are good things happening nearby. We don't always have to look at some far-off country, or even the opposite end of our own country, to... Continue Reading →
