The “Joys” of Being 41

The “Joys” of Being 41

I am 41 years and 3-ish months old and I’m kind of over it, thanks. Turning 40 was freaking amazing.  I really, truly mean that 100%.  There was this awesome party!  People go out of their way to tell you happy birthday, you look fantastic, […]

Roxette and Radio Nostalgia

Roxette and Radio Nostalgia

Isn’t it funny how you can be driving along, minding your own business, when a song will come on the radio and knock you back about 30 years? Yep.  That happened to me this morning. So, there I was, just hanging out in my minivan […]

August Reads: Three Books & Some Movies for Good Measure

Wowza, friends.  I feel like I have consumed all the media this past month.  While I haven’t kept up with the last two months’ four-book streak, I came in with a solid three and feel like that’s pretty respectable.  I also watched some fabulous movies […]

Trendsend Review #3 – Two Hits & Six Misses

It’s Fine.  I’m Fine.  Everything’s Fine.

It’s Fine. I’m Fine. Everything’s Fine.

Greetings from my little corner of Crazy Town!! Seriously, man, things around here have been absolutely bananas lately!  I think I’ve already adequately discussed how May is the new December, so I won’t yank your chain any more about all that.  But there are a […]

“A Welcome Grace” Turns ONE!

“A Welcome Grace” Turns ONE!

I am completely, utterly flabbergasted that an entire year has gone by since I pressed publish on my first post.  This little hobby that I started has brought me more joy and opportunity than I could ever have imagined!  And what really blows my mind, […]
