I admit it. I am a plant whore. I love them. I love taking care of them, watching them grow and thrive, and I especially love propagating. Winter is a challenge, as my house doesn't have the kind of space I need where the sun shines the most. Being the crafty bitch I am, I … Continue reading Plant Whore.
The Continuing Purge.
Sometimes it seems like I'm never going to be done. I get one area clean and awesome and then realize I have another couple boxes of crap to go thru. I have more empathy than ever for the people on Hoarders cuz this shizz is HARD. But the truth is that all that crap was … Continue reading The Continuing Purge.

Thank gawd for Libby.
I am so grateful to have a niece. That was the best gift any of my siblings could give me. She’s a goddamn delight.

A couple weeks ago my gf was in town and we got to check out this superfun event. I am constantly amazed at the immense artistic talent people have across all mediums. It was a joy watching the artists work all day to create these amazing works of art. Enjoy the photo dump!!
We all have teachable moments. I consider them to be moments in my life where I instantly knew whatever I'd done was wrong, but the words were out of my mouth and there was no taking them back. Of course with a 13YO and a 11YO there are lots of teachable moments at my house. … Continue reading Teachable Moments
