The good old Friday Favorites are back, ya’ll, and I have two words for you. Shut. Up. Without going into a long explanation of the mental state I’m clearly in to be as hypocritical indecisive and flustered about something so trivial, let me just say that as much as I thought I liked the idea […]

You guys will never believe this. I’m thinking of changing these posts. Yes, I know there’s only been four of them. Yes, I know I just changed the Friday Favorites over to them because I was sick of the Friday Favorites, but guess what? I kind of miss the Friday Favorites.   But then I remembered […]

I don’t know about you, but once the Fourth of July is over, summer feels rushed to me. On paper, it’s ridiculous and erroneous, I realize, as we aren’t technically even halfway through it yet, but in my mind — especially this year — I start to panic. Panic over our dog days ending. Or […]

The tragic events that happened in Orlando over the past week — all three of them horrific and unimaginable in their own ways — have left me breathless.
