Welcome!

Welcome!

Welcome, Friend, to my new home on the Internet! I am a writer and have been blogging (off and on) for many years now. Since I returned to the workforce this past summer, I have been contemplating my creative outlets. Those I utilized when I was an entrepreneur no...

Hearth & Home

It was a chilly and damp day here yesterday. I don't know about you, but days like that cause us to want to hole up and seek comfort here at home. Granted, I did go out to do a few errands, but by the time I got back? I was definitely ready to hibernate. How did DW...

This past week, as part of my interview process for the new job, one of the questions I was asked was "if you could have any job in the world, what would it be?" To be honest, at the time, I couldn't provide an adequate answer. As I thought on it more, though, the...

Making the Best of It

This morning, I popped into the Everyday Magic Check-In post from Friday to share my own favorite image. For me, the "magic" I experienced was not from the image itself, rather the story behind the image. (After all, isn't that where much of the magic in our lives...
