I wanted to tell you. I couldn’t. I wanted to tell you that I was… Continue reading What I wanted to tell you

A teaspoon of sprinkles with a cherry on top

Halloween may be over, but I wanted to share this year's award winning costume with you! This ice cream sundae costume looks a lot more complicated than it really is. The materials are simple and cheap, and it only took me about 6 Gilmore Girls episodes to make (time is told in the number of… Continue reading A teaspoon of sprinkles with a cherry on top

Quoted: Home

Ram Dass once said "We're all just walking each other Home." Whoa. This is powerful & I’m not entirely sure why? Lately, the concept of “home” has been so prominent in my heart. Where I am now – this place with this body – it’s temporary. It’s not my forever home. But what I’ve failed… Continue reading Quoted: Home

Meet us at the river

  My best friend and I are runners- Not the healthy, fit, muscular kind of runners (although I do love running, and finished two 5K’s within 24 hours a few months ago), but the lets-get-away-from-here kind of runners.
