I have a running list of goals that I want to achieve. I’m not great about the¬†when¬†particularly, but they’re there and I make sure to check that list pretty frequently to see how I’m coming along. One of those goals was that I wanted to have events of some kind. I believe the exact wording was “have get togethers about wellness and shit.” I’m quite eloquent with my goals. In May of this year I decided that it was time to check that goal off my list. I decided that I wanted to host workshops that aligned with the content… View Post

Welcome to October! I know I’m not the only one who’s excited for temperatures to cool down, baking to ensue, and sweaters to make an appearance. No shame. September marked my first full month of self-employment and it took me awhile to figure out where to focus my energies. I had to work on calming my anxiety that I wasn’t working enough and let myself take a break to take Donut to the dog park or finish my workday at 5 pm. It’s still something I’m working on, but so far it was a good first month. Here are some… View Post

Last week I spent five days at a place called Modfarm in Michigan City, Indiana. It was a magical five days and I’m more than happy with the outcome of my trip. As you know, I decided I wanted to get away to concentrate on writing my book with little interruptions.

Sooooo I’m leaving this afternoon for a 5-day excursion. It’s really nothing extravagant; I booked this trip about three months ago after returning from the Everything Food Conference filled with inspiration and the pull to write again. You can read that post here. That previous post really sums up the what and why of this trip, so I’m going to jump into my expectations of what I want from the next five days in order to keep me accountable. As Type-B as this entire thing sounds, my Type-A personality needs some structure in order to actually make it relaxing. That… View Post

Can you believe it’s already September? The weather is starting to cool off which I’m really looking forward to because the older I get, the more I feel that my favorite time of year is fall. I have my writing trip to Michigan scheduled for later this month and I’m REALLY excited about it. Before I get ahead of myself, though, it’s time to take a look back at August. Towards the end of the month I took a trip to visit my sister in Vermont. It was a great way for me to get outside of the city, away… View Post
