An Introduction to Bullet Journaling

  Bullet journaling is one of those things that’s become really popular on social media in the last year or two, and for a lot of good reasons: it’s a versatile system designed for busy people who like to keep track of their lives and thrive on organization. There are LOTS of resources out there … Continue reading

January 2017 Vacation

There were so many posts I wanted to write this year but for some reason never got around to it, so one of my main goals for 2018 will be to focus on blogging – I miss writing it and having only a couple posts in a year is bananas! I have a few queued … Continue reading

Top 10 Book Favorites of 2017

I love reading – everything about it! Stories, worlds, characters, bookstores, new book smell, finding written notes on old pages, rereading something and it hitting me the same way it did the very first time — I’ve learned so much from books and have been an avid reader my entire life. My favorite genres have … Continue reading

Sacramento Pagan Festival (2016)

This (and the next few tbh) post is going to contain lots of stuff from last year, ’cause I never really got around to posting them. Moving across the country and then resettling when nearly everything you own is destroyed in the move takes quite a bit of time, who would have thought? 😛   … Continue reading

4 months and counting…

I keep doing this whole lapse thing in between posts; whoops! (Again). If I’m paying for my URL and hosting, I should theoretically be able to post whenever and not feel guilty by the frequency (or lack thereof)… right?   This time, I have three (!) excuses: Life Work SIMS!   I am verrrrryyyyy wrapped … Continue reading

Goodbye, 2016!

Yesterday I spent almost an hour writing a really long, heartfelt post about my 2016, believing that being positive in the face of all the negativity of the year would start 2017 off on the “right foot”. After typing paragraphs of what I’m grateful for and have accomplished this last year and then scouring every … Continue reading

Soupa Saiyan – Restaurant Review

Before moving from Florida, I made a short list of places I wanted to either revisit before leaving or visit for the first time to experience. Among places like Disney World and my favorite Starbucks were little restaurants that I’d heard about but hadn’t gotten to try. Orlando has a surprising amount of really good … Continue reading

Baylie’s 18th Birthday Weekend

Back in July I visited my younger brother Baylie for the last time before moving across the country. The visit doubled as a “goodbye” and as a birthday visit since he was turning 18, and it was also an opportunity for me to see his new home and where he lived up in Jacksonville!   … Continue reading

Recipe: Chickpea Salad Sandwiches

Many, many months ago when Sinéad visited me, we had lunch at a vegan restaurant where she ordered a chickpea salad sandwich. I love chickpeas in every form that’s ever entered my mouth, so I was immediately intrigued (but not as intrigued as I was by the “All-American vegan burger” I ordered that really did taste like … Continue reading

Goodbye, Disney World

I’ll be doing a post on the places I miss the most from Florida since moving, but Disney World deserves a post of its own!   I was a grateful and proud owner of a WDW annual pass and was able to visit the theme parks regularly – something that isn’t so easy now that … Continue reading
