Sinéad’s Visit to Florida – Part 3 + Jack’s Visit!

This is the last part of my series on Sinéad’s visit and it makes me sad that it’s almost over — I’m glad I have so many pictures to remember it!😀 Aside from eating at various new vegan places, visiting magical Harry Potter Land, drinking lots of coffee, baking cupcakes and “scooping lefts”, we also visited … Continue reading


Sinéad’s Visit to Florida – Part 2

This entry has been a long time coming! It’s been 9 months now since my beloved Sinéad visited me, and I still haven’t shared everything from her trip – a travesty on my part, to be perfectly honest. I have been incredibly busy, but that’s no excuse – I have to share the amazing selfies and … Continue reading


Hello From the Other Side (Of the Country!)

I have so much to update with, but I want to give each new thing its own post so the many amazing things that have been going on can get the attention they deserve. Before I start a big slew of back logged photo posts however, I did want to at least announce the biggest thing … Continue reading


Sinéad’s Visit to Florida – Part 1

I am so behind on posting this, and that sort of happens a lot. I normally feel bad about it and offer a short apology or reason, but this time I’ll just be up front about what it is: I have a pretty terrible anxiety disorder, and it sometimes allows me to convince myself that … Continue reading

Recipe: Simple & Quick Banana Nut Bread

When I was little, I loved anything with bananas in it. Banana baby food was my favorite as a tiny child and my love affair with the fruit grew and grew – along with a growing suspicion that eating delicious things probably shouldn’t hurt. As I got older, my mouth became more and more uncomfortable with the … Continue reading


Learning to Paint

I recently realized that I’m going on almost 9 months since I decided that I wanted to try watercolor painting, and I haven’t really posted much about it on my blog! Nothing specific prompted me to pick up a new hobby – I’ve always liked the idea of painting, but I’m not especially talented in … Continue reading


Happy New Year!

Remember back in August when I talked about how I’d update more regularly? And then remember the 5 month absence that immediately followed? Whoops! The last half a year has been pretty rocky and if I’m being totally honest, I can’t say I’m even a little bit sorry for the unexpected hiatus because sometimes life … Continue reading


Life Lately: August

I didn’t mean for there to be such a large gap between posts, but I’ve had some medical issues for the last month that have kept me pretty busy. We’ll go with the short explanation and say that my wisdom teeth aren’t making me feel very wise, and I have an appointment with an oral … Continue reading

Recipe: Swirly Nutella Cheesecake Squares

First, I need to let you know that my inaccurate cutting led to these being more rectangular than the title of this recipe would lead you to believe, but we’re going to pretend that isn’t the case – may the odds of even cutting be ever in your favor! Second, I have some seriously talented … Continue reading
