Posts of dorm rooms, campus tours and babies turned into adults flood my feeds. I am not alone. My closest friends are all going through the same thing. Meanwhile, feelings of sadness, worry, chaos, and excitement scurry through me. At the same time, feelings of nostalgia are the strongest, thinking back at my curious, observantContinue reading “The Send Off”

*Screenshot of my Wordle a few weeks ago, when I just couldn’t figure it out… Wordle. This little game has added new joy to my morning routine. Not just because its fairly easy and quick to play (here’s a run down of the game if you are not familiar) but because since I started playing,Continue reading “Wordle.”
Happy Holidays to YOU!
Tis the season to be running around busy, trying to get it all done. I mentioned in my last post that I am trying to enjoy the season, relax and take it all in. One of the things I do enjoy about the holidays is giving. While I might pack my schedule shopping and cooking,Continue reading “Happy Holidays to YOU!”
Beat the Blues this Holiday Season
*Photo Credit: Real Simple – another great article re: holiday stress I was browsing through some of my older blogs today and came across an article I wrote for my blog and Red Tricycle a few years ago. The concept was a letter to myself over the holidays, a reminder that I actually do enjoyContinue reading “Beat the Blues this Holiday Season”
I love my writing group. We meet twice a month, we chat about all things. Today we talked about our writing, the world around us, our lives, our privilege, our stories, our families.

The first two limbs are The Yamas (restraints, moral disciplines or moral vows, how we show up in the world) and The NiyamasContinue reading “Being Content With Letting Go”
The Day Has Come
I never wanted this day to come. I loved living in the camper and innocently I thought we could hold on to it for many years to come. But we never wanted it to be the rotted out camper that goes out to pasture, and as we noticed small issues here and there, we knewContinue reading “The Day Has Come”
Looking for a glass ball last night, wandering around Seabrook, we took a turn down a narrow trail. We didn’t find the glass ball, but we did find these beautiful trees with the evening sun shining through. That’s all.
For me, one of the silver linings of the pandemic has been joining my writing groups. I have taken a number of classes with Hugo House and have formed friendships and groups with people I have never met in person, yet I tell them everything about my life. In our group this weekend, we wereContinue reading “Last Time”
Moving, organizing, getting settled. I took a break from the blog last week because I was bit overwhelmed, now I am feeling a bit more grounded in my space. For me it felt like home since the moment we walked in. The laundry is loud, the space is small, there is barely any storage, butContinue reading “Coming Home”
