November – The Feelings, The Food, and Family

November has always been a weird month for me. It’s mixed with both wonderful memories as well as some of the most painful of my life. It’s when the chill in the air starts to set in, it’s when Cody was born, it’s when I get to eat my favorite meal of the entire year […]

A Little Gratitude & How a Shop Vac Saved the Day

I haven’t written a gratitude post in a really long time and all it took was a trip to my basement for laundry duty to make me think I needed to remedy that. It’s literally been raining here for days. It’s like Spring only more annoying because Winter is next instead of Summer. So like […]

Finding Your ‘Thing’
