Long Absence

Hello everyone,

I have been absent from blogging for months now. I think the last post I wrote was either in January or February.  I haven’t felt like blogging, or writing at all in general. I have had way too much going on in my life besides blogging that it just kind of fell to the wayside.  I recently moved to a much bigger space with nearly twice the square footage of my last apartment.

All the Places I Would Go

Hello everyone,

I am really looking forward to taking a short trip with my mom to Chicago this weekend.  We haven’t been on a vacation together in a long time and we are mostly going to go shopping at some neat places in the Chicago area and we’ll be staying up there as well.  It’s going to be really fun.   Continue reading

New Additions to My Library

Hello everyone!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. It’s silly, but if I leave for the day and see a groundhog or another random animal, that just makes the rest of the day better. I saw a groundhog today 🙂 Those buddies are just too precious. Continue reading

Stressful Situations, Stressful People

I have come to the realization that certain people and situations stress me out.  Stress sucks, plain and simple. Part of having an anxiety disorder means I worry a lot and stress out all the time. I am terrible at handling my stress. If I’m not in a stressful situation, then I’m totally fine. At home, I am relaxed and with my boys and am exactly who I want to be.   Continue reading

The Pros and Cons of Being Me

I am so in love with that boy cat. Is he just not so precious?  I have so many funny photos of him. I love the one where he is sleeping with his head against the arm of the couch 😀

I’m 100% sure everyone can write a post like this. Actually, I encourage you to write a post like this! I would love to get to know all of you more on a deeper level.  Continue reading

Quarter Life Crisis?

Today I turned 25. I came to work to find that my lovely coworkers gave me cupcakes.  Birthdays have never bothered me before, but this one is rough for some reason. I realize that in just five years I’ll be 30 and in 15 years, I’ll be 40. Makes me feel sick to my stomach.  I’m freaking out. Continue reading

I Feel Like Things Are Getting Better

It is really, really cold today. When I woke up, it was -11 degrees F outside! My car was struggling to start. I am just counting the days until spring, so I wanted my featured image to be one of springtime and of my favorite herb, lavender 🙂 I think it’s lavender anyway, but it might be that tricky flower that looks like lavender. Well, you get my point.
