I feel like I just wrote one of these for September and here we are at the end of November. Pretty soon it’ll be the new year! At the beginning of the month I traveled to Toronto to visit Beverley, a blogging friend I had known for a couple years but never actually met. The internet is magical. First, I drove to Michigan to stay with Ashley and then we went the rest of the way together. Our blogging group was rounded out by Erin (#2) and Jess who met us in Toronto. The trip was great, albeit a little… View Post

I know it’s not technically the end of the month, but close enough, so I’m sharing this month’s life lately with you. I keep a running list of what happens each month because even though I always think I’ll remember everything, I’ve learned that I won’t. Months are actually a long time! I hosted my fourth wellness workshop — focusing on mediation and mental health. I decided to take a break from hosting them until the new year because of holidays coming up and just wanting to space them out a little bit more. I’ve loved doing them and you… View Post

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.

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. I didn’t sign up for a writing camp or workshop, but decided that I wanted to go somewhere alone. Since it was the first time I had done something like this and hadn’t read much about the experiences of others, I want this post to be about my tips… View Post
