A Year in Review: 2018’s Top Nine

I was really excited to find that people are doing their “Top Nine” again this year. I think it’s a really cool way to reflect on the year, based solely on your social media posts on Instagram. Now, I know there are important events that won’t have been commemorated with a photo post and that [...]

IT’S THE BIG ONE-ZERO-ZERO

Today is a blog day, and it’s not just any blog day – it is the 100th blog day! 100 BLOGS I’ve written and posted 100 blogs – call me cynical, but I doubt there is anyone out there who can say that they’ve read all the blogs. (Except for myself, of course.) **Edit: Denise [...]

The Post-Vacation Blues

My post-vacation blues are tropical teals and deep ocean blues and seaweed greens. Guys, I just spent the past week in Jamaica and I don’t want to be back. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I missed my family and my quiet bed (the resort’s beds were weirdly loud when trying to get in or [...]

Visiting the Nug

As you all know, about three-ish weeks ago, the kid brother graduated from college. (If you didn’t know, I blogged about it here.) He moved home the day after graduation and then the day after that he moved to Tennessee. It was a wild ride that I was extraordinarily glad I wasn’t on. He handled [...]

A couple of things stand out to me when I think back to my week [...]

Best Nine

Happy New Year’s Eve, everyone!  Today’s blog is going to be a little bit short, not for a lack of material, but because I’m simultaneously getting ready to go out for some NYE celebrations with friends but wanted to still get this posted on my regular Sunday post day. There has been this “Best Nine [...]

Totally Drool-Worthy

This week I took a one-day adventure with Thomas up to Asheville. I found it incredible that he’s lived in North Carolina his entire life and hasn’t been to the historic home yet. I, on the other hand, haven't seen the Biltmore decorated for Christmas, which is on my Winter bucket list. So, like we [...]
