So toward the end of last week I was nominated by two lovely ladies for a couple of Liebster Awards! Thanks Madison and Sydney! I’ve always been a sucker for surveys (remember in the early 2000s when email surveys were all the rage? 🙂 ), so I’m even more thankful to those two for giving […]

MIMM: Growing Up

I saw this idea the other day in Grace’s post, and loved it.

WIAW + Brownie Batter Pancakes

I normally try very hard not to wish away time. In the grand scheme of things, I don’t have a lot of it, and I like to try and live in the moment and be thankful for what I have every day. However………… This is my last full week of classes (they give us next […]


A few summers ago my family and I spent a couple of days in Boston. I immediately fell in love with the city, its beauty, and the strength and dedication of its people. There really is a comradeship in its people, who are so warm and inviting. It’s one of the most American cities I […]
