Missing Friends #Life

Nearly fifteen years ago, my boyfriend as of no more than a month informed me we were going out to lunch. In fact, we were leaving right then and there, and we had to hurry because they were waiting for us. I was all sorts of confused, but shrugged, hopped in the car, and rode…

Insecure? Not Today. #IWSG

The first Wednesday of every month, I participate in a blog hop for the the Insecure Writer’s Support Group. Except lately, I haven’t been insecure. I’ve been making good progress on my WIP, putting down over 3K a week toward it. I have to finish the chapter I’m currently working on, and then it’ll be…

Paint Me A Picture

When it comes to hobbies and interests, I’m the type of person who starts something and usually abandons it half-finished. Girl Scouts, ballet, gymnastics, knitting, wire-working… Eventually, my love of the activity fades and I leave it by the wayside. Thankfully, that hasn’t been the case with drawing (or writing for that matter). Back in…

I’d even forgotten about our anniversary until my daughter asked me…

I also have a long history of dying my hair bright colors (currently it’s more on the “salmon” side of blood orange). Apparently, my daughter inherited said traits because when it came to a…

Aesthetics on Pinterest

I’m late to the game, but there’s this thing people do called “building aesthetic boards on Pinterest.” My friend Dani introduced me to the concept and then another email pal sent me links to her own aesthetic boards. I have to admit, there’s a certain charm to putting pictures together to create a feel, so…

Month Six Out Of Twelve #IWSG

I find it hard to believe it’s June already. I mean, wasn’t it just April where I was down with fever and pneumonia? I’m still coughing, so it couldn’t have been that long ago. But alas, it really is June. That means almost half of the year is gone, and I haven’t finished writing my…
