Rye Makes Great Food that Will Have You Returning for More

When Surfing My Phone is not an Option There’s always my Newest Netflix Binge

Now that I’m not spending all of my free time on my cell phone at night (see why here), I’ve found other ways to occupy my very limited time.

Oh So Thankful: November’s 3o Day Challenge

Not gonna lie, I’m typing this after having a glass-or two-of wine. No, not enough to impair just enough to sip alongside a killer meal my husband made on this ordinary Thursday night. And sitting here–in my usual spot in the living room, laptop in hand–I’m thinking to myself that I’m thankful to have such… Continue reading Oh So Thankful: November’s 3o Day Challenge

30 Day Challenge Results for October

This was a month to let my creative energies flow. Now I am by no means an artist–Picasso is not in my repertoire, haha not even close–, but I still like to color, draw, and find inspiration in things around me to be creative in my own sense.  My challenge for the month of October was… Continue reading 30 Day Challenge Results for October
