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

Watercolor Recipe: Vegan Elvis Cupcakes

During Sinéad’s visit, we experimented with vegan baking – more experimentation for me, since I hadn’t baked something intentionally vegan more than a time or two and a lot of fun for Sinéad since we decided to “wing it” with our measurements. As such, here is a one-of-a-kind (each time, lol) sort of recipe that is … Continue reading

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 … 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
