I’m thankful for:

Chester enjoying a bag in the living room

Sorry to the reference to ASOFAI ;) It just seemed fitting for this post. Sometimes I can’t believe how quickly life goes by. I remember when I was younger feeling that 15 minutes seemed to last forever.  Now, 15 minutes is nothing to me. Each week seems to go faster and faster and the years are flying by. I just want time to slow down. Continue reading

Remembering Things Again

Yesterday, I went to my dad’s house two hours south of me for his 50th birthday.  My broth and sister came as well and it was so good to see my family.

We visited my grandpa and my aunt happened to be there as well.  She had picked off all the grapes from my grandma’s old grapevine and was going to make jelly like grandma used to.  She had my grandma’s recipe book on the table.  I have never actually seen the book, but looking at it brought back memories.

Settling In With My Funny Cat

2014-08-03 20.13.20This cat is hilarious. I actually had time to take a picture of him while he sat there with this strange open-mouthed face for at least five minutes. There isn’t much that he doesn’t do that isn’t hilarious.   Continue reading

Being Alone

2014-07-25 19.16.21


It’s way too quiet in here tonight.  This is Chester at the moment. He’s staring daggers it seems at me for typing too loudly while he was trying to take a nap. It appears I woke him.   Continue reading


I Think I Might Have A Problem

Ok, I know i have a problem.  Tonight I went to pick up some groceries and ended up also bringing home a beauty blender sponge, which is basically just an oblong makeup sponge, and a Freeman peel off mask and paper mask. Continue reading
