Day Two: Break All the Rules
This is going to hurt. A lot. For those of you just tuning in, I'm making a blog extravaganza of Sara Crawford's The 30 Day Writing Challenge. "Another problem I see for beginning writers is that they worry so much about being bad that they are afraid to write at all. If you can relate to … Continue reading Day Two: Break All the Rules
Sara Crawford’s 30 Day Writing Challenge: A Beginning
I've been wracking and racking my brain lately in an attempt to breathe some new life into my blogging. It's been far too long since the days of Ye Olde Livejournal where daily posts were made in abundance (sometimes overabundance...even when I had nothing to say). Something happened a few weeks ago that took the wind … Continue reading Sara Crawford’s 30 Day Writing Challenge: A Beginning

Adventures in Cooking
Whoa, hey! This thing still exists! I'd apologize for not paying attention to my blogosphere, but I'm a slacker and I'll get to it later. 🙂 Today, I was feeling pretty froggy, so I decided to jump in the kitchen and throw down an old recipe that I finally finagled from my mom (alliteration ftw, … Continue reading Adventures in Cooking

Month of Cah-Ray-Zee!
October is without a doubt my favorite time of year. It is also my BUSIEST time of year hands down. Once October 1st hits, every bit of free time I have is booked solid. Parties, events, festivals, not to mention Halloween, and baking fill my time. If I could go without sleep, I probably would. … Continue reading Month of Cah-Ray-Zee!
Dog Shaming: Version – My House
We have four fantastically personalitied dogs, two large and two small. They are a source of constant entertainment, love, scorn, frustration, laughter, and anything else you can pull out of the emotional bag. We love them immensely. After my daily visits to Dog-shaming.com, I decided to bring down the "wrath" on our own fur beasts. … Continue reading Dog Shaming: Version – My House
The earmarks of a life tend to be driven by where the boundaries of the comfort zone fall. Think about it. All of those big moments, the devastations, the triumphs, the failures…all of those things happened when you were pushing, pull, breaking through, and down-right trampling the circle of your comfort zone. That’s kind of … Continue reading Breaking Fences
The Memory of a Footprint: 9/11
It’s not often that I share my own memory of 9/11. I might have recounted it at one time, but for whatever reason, it’s not a yearly thing for me to share. I was working at a technical recruiting firm in Atlanta, GA at the time. Being the payroll administrator, I wasn’t chained to my … Continue reading The Memory of a Footprint: 9/11
