A Disney World Redemption

Hey everyone! I was working on a post about an October reading wrap up, but then I went to Disney World for a week with my husband and our family and friends. And the October reading wrap up had to wait. To give my enthusiasm for writing about my Disney World experience some context, weContinue reading “A Disney World Redemption”

Taking the Leap

My first blog post! I guess the polite thing would be to start by saying hello and welcome. In my head I’m waving to you like the gif of Forrest Gump waving excitedly from his boat to Lieutenant Dan. That’s how excited I am that you’re here. I’ve been thinking a lot recently about leapsContinue reading “Taking the Leap”

A Travel Blog (Sort Of.)

May 7, 2021 Hey everyone! Sorry for the delay. I clearly don’t know what I’m doing. Ha. Do you post every day? Every week? Are there algorithms I should be caring about? But I can’t start “shoulding” myself to death. That’s when things become a mess. And I’m already a mess. So let’s pretend likeContinue reading “A Travel Blog (Sort Of.)”

The Middle of the Beginning

September 16, 2021 No one tells you how weird the middle of the beginning feels. The beginning of something new is long.

But then one day you look up atContinue reading “The Middle of the Beginning”

Writer’s Walks and A Couple of Thoughts

Happy Saturday all! I never know how to start these things. I don’t want to say, “I hope you are well,” or “I hope this finds you well.” I do hope both of those things. However, this is not a work email and the hope I have for you is genuine and not just aContinue reading “Writer’s Walks and A Couple of Thoughts”

Panic Attacks and Writing Prompts

Happy Saturday everyone! Is anyone else having a most delightful autumn/October? It’s seriously my favorite time of year. I think I have reverse seasonal affective disorder, where I get sad in the summer and happy in the fall and winter. Maybe it’s the fact that summer feels so stressful. Like you have to be goingContinue reading “Panic Attacks and Writing Prompts”

Part III: A Date in the Future

I said I was going to stay consistent. I said I was going to post on Saturdays. I said all of these things to myself. And it’s not that I lied. It’s that life happened. As it does. And then we as the responsible parent of ourselves is on the hook for making sure weContinue reading “Part III: A Date in the Future”

Part II: Punctuation?!

Hey everyone! It’s time for another “Catapult Class Writing Prompt”! I’ve been spending this Saturday reading Love and Olives, which I’ve been enjoying very much after reading Love and Gelato. My anxiety has been high for the last week or so, and my current fixation is “books that take place in Greece”. I also readContinue reading “Part II: Punctuation?!”
