Concoctions in the Kitchen

Anyone else love experimenting in the kitchen? I personally love it! Weird spices and odd ingredients? Bring it on! I’m also one to get sucked down the pinterest rabbit hole with browsing recipes and admiring all the pictures of the tasty food. It was on one of these little adventures that I stumbled upon a…

Let the hunt for happiness begin!

It’s been a year since my last post. An entire year. Does anyone else think that’s insane or is it just me? I mean, I doubt there are many people out there reading my ramblings but if you are it’s been one hell of a year. Between taking care of my health (I was diagnosed…

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!! I hope everyone has a wonderful time ringing in the new year! With every new beginning, we all have hopes, wishes, and dreams for what the year will bring with it. While some people make resolutions centering on weight loss, getting out of debt, to stop smoking, flossing more, etc. I’ve decided…

Reading Recommendations for the Holidays?

Hello there! It’s been a while. Life’s been a whirlwind as of late and I haven’t had much time to sit and be still, let alone blog. Such is life though and it happens to everyone. That being said, this is the first day in a long time I’ve had absolutely nothing on my agenda…

Hunt for Haunting Hardcover (or paperback)

Hello again! It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Fall is just starting to set in, bringing cooler weather and gorgeous leaves. For this Floridian, that means getting to make up for 18 years of not being able to wear boots, sweaters, and scarves! Yippee! (Note: this is not at all sarcastic, I am…

These are a few of my favorite things…

Raindrops on roses And whiskers on kittens Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens Brown paper packages tied up with strings These are a few of my favorite things… So, I’ve had this song stuck in my head all day (I work with kids) and it’s safe to say I had to figure out a…

Let me introduce myself…

I don’t consider myself much of a writer, at least not in terms of an author of books or a journalist on the hunt for an exposé. Rather, I’m a believer in writing to make oneself happy, to reconnect with the more tactile pleasures in the world. To send snail mail and handwritten notes, those…
