Summer Projects

I’m starting to feel like a human again. Exciting, right? I have more energy, I don’t need a nap every two hours—thank goodness—and I can actually get excited about projects again. Including my birthday project! Something that I love to invest in—when I’m not so tired that I can’t string four words together—is farming on … Continue reading Summer Projects

A New Garden

Summer is here! Shockingly. Every time winter comes to an end in Colorado, there’s always a chancy few weeks when I’m not quite sure if spring is here or if winter is just waiting for me to get my hopes up so it can crush all my dreams.Case in point, we planted our garden at … Continue reading A New Garden

Finding Time For Fun

Okay, I’ll admit it. Lately, my husband and I have been a little, teeny bit stressed. You know, with the new baby coming, and my traveling for work, and watching my nephew several days a week, and our house project stalling every time we get some momentum going. (Gotta love those government regulations.) Between me … Continue reading Finding Time For Fun

3 Things I Wish I Knew Before Committing to the Writer’s Life

I love being a writer. I love being a full-time writer, and I’m looking forward even more to being a full-time writer who is also a stay-at-home mum. That’s still a weird concept for me, by the way.

I Mailed A Letter Today

I Mailed A Letter Today I mailed a letter today, I wrote it just for you. The words were traced with gray-green ink, It’s still my favorite hue. I pasted in a poem, The kind I knew you’d save.

If I Were A Pilot

If I were a pilot, I’d fly so very far. Probably to Malaysia, Or maybe Zanzibar. I’d take my plane above the clouds, As high as we could soar. Then drop down low so we could see, That strange and distant shore. I’d fly us to a jungle, And land among the trees, So we … Continue reading If I Were A Pilot

Writer/Director

I flew down to California a few weeks ago. Wait. Let me be more specific. A few weeks ago, I woke up at 2:30 AM and drove forty five minutes into town to the airport so that I could catch a 5:45 AM flight to Burbank, California. Then I got picked up at the airport … Continue reading Writer/Director

Perfectly Imperfect

I’m perfectly imperfect,And by that I mean to say,I’ve got a lovely golden star,For my awesome, faulty day.I gave myself a dozen points,And a silver crescent moon.For eating all my breakfast,And cleaning up my room.My dishes aren’t clean today,But I don’t feel so bad.My laundry’s in the washer,So I guess I’m pretty rad.I even called … Continue reading Perfectly Imperfect

Adventurer Beware!

Adventurer beware! I have a tale that I could tell. Of giant ants and fearsome beasts, And monsters black and fell. Adventurer beware! When once you mount that trusty steed. Home you’ll leave behind you, Down dangerous roads your search will lead. The Forest Gloom awaits you, On your most magic quest. Haunted by enormous … Continue reading Adventurer Beware!
