Rituals

I’ve officially been working from home for a year now. Since I am now a freelancer, working from home should be a pretty permanent thing now. (Fingers crossed.) And, since I’m no longer logging hours or focusing solely on one project, my schedule has changed significantly in the last few weeks. Which means that my…

Off to the Zoo

It’s spring now, right? We’re gonna say it’s spring. Colorado will object and probably send a huge snowstorm just to spite me, but it’s warm today and I want to believe in miracles. That’s why all my windows are open. Since it is most definitely spring, I took some time out of the whirlwind of…

Learning to Swim

I haven’t posted in two months. Is that crazy or what? This may be the longest break I’ve taken since I started this blog. Okay, it’s probably not the longest. It feels like the longest, though. I have a good reason for keeping my head down as long as I have. Things have been happening….

Messy Writing

I have a new book in the works. Exciting, right? My life has been a little crazy lately, what with work and being married and working through lessons on MasterClass and possibly even working on design ideas for a new house. (Gasp.) But, in the midst of it all, I have my own work to…

Finding Room

Did I mention that I got married last year? I got married last year. 2020 was a whirlwind, let me tell you. For about 27 million reasons. One of those reasons happened to be moving. As in, my husband moving in with me. Yep, we could have gone out and rented an apartment in town…

Book Lists

I recently sat down and reorganized my ‘finally read that’ book list. Mostly because 2020 was coming to an end, and I wanted a fresh start for a new year. Also, I decided it was time to face the reading disaster that was 2020 and figure out how to move on from it. I read…

A New Year

Happy New Year! I’ve been MIA for a few weeks for the Christmas season. Life continues on even when we’re celebrating, and I’ve had to keep up momentum at work and learn to juggle the added excitement of having two families during the holiday season. Now, I’ve finally had some time to stop and take…

Studying Away

Today, the trees outside my house are stuff with frost and almost shockingly white against the blue sky. It’s cold. It’s been cold for days. It will be cold for many more days. I haven’t decided yet whether I’m sick of cold, but I’m definitely getting there. I want to go outside again. And not…

Investing

Does anyone else ever get a weird urge to completely reinvent themselves and focus all their time and energy on a new hobby until you’ve perfected it? Yeah, me too. This week, it was drawing. I can’t actually draw, of course. But I would like to someday. I would like to be able to draw…

A Year of MasterClass

Christmas came early this year. Mostly because of Black Friday, because who doesn’t love getting a good deal? Neither my husband or I are big on gifts, so rather than running through the gauntlet and making him guess what I might like for Christmas, I made it easy and told him I wanted the all-inclusive…
