I don’t make New Years resolutions. I never really have. I don’t entirely know why I’ve chosen not assign some resolutions for the upcoming year, but I do think it has something to do with me not really thinking about it. I do have a few goals I intend on reaching by the end of …
Merry December, Everyone! Robot Saint Klaus by Me
I’m part of this amazing group of women crafters that have a yearly holiday ornament exchange. This was my first year participating! It took me forever to figure out what kind of ornament to make. I also didn’t even know how to begin since it was a secret santa kind of thing so I didn’t …
Thanksgiving Tag Post
Happy Thanksgiving Week, Everyone! Before I write anything, I’d like to clarify that I am aware that Thanksgiving isn’t the best of holidays and a lot of people have major beef with what Thanksgiving represents to them.

Did You Know? – Learning to Let Go
I’ve been doing a lot of packing and unpacking lately. As I packed, I considered what I would keep and what I would not. This entire process makes you aware of all the stuff you own. Not everything I had was valuable. I ended up gifting some of my clothes to friends while other objects …

Today was Damian’s and I treat day. We don’t tend to have many but every couple of weeks we throw caution to the wind and unwind, we go someplace nice, and maybe splurge on a few bits. We aren’t huge spendthrifts so everything we purchase we’ll use but sometimes we buy something a little special.
Did You Know? Choose Happiness
I was reading this article about what not to say to people. It was an article riddled with paranoia and mistrust. Its tone overall was entirely negative. It was unpleasant to read, to say the least. I’m not a fan of articles that base themselves off negative feelings especially those who are meant to …
Did You Know? Saying No
As I grow older, I’ve noticed that I have a hard time saying “No”. On the rare occasions I do say “no” I am overcome by an absurd amount of guilt. It doesn’t matter if the request was absurd or if I just absolutely couldn’t manage to help an individual at that moment, I …
Did You Know? Kindness
Lately, I’ve been thinking about kindness and what being kind entails. I’ve heard a lot of people use the word. I’ve seen examples of kindness. I’ve been called kind yet I don’t fully understand what it means when people call me kind. What does it take to have that quality?
Did You Know? Taking Risks
Yesterday, I was texting back and forth with a lovely friend. She likes to garden. I’ve always loved the idea of having my own garden but never had the backyard for it.
