Good morning! Who got snow last night? We didn’t. I guess it missed us because someone commented from over in Jersey and said they were watching snow fall. It wasn’t supposed to be that much anyway, but I was hoping for some pretty. It’s so drab outside right now, and it’s cold again. I always say, if it’s cold, it might as well snow! As far as I’m concerned, snow is the only redeeming thing about cold weather. Well, that and
I started my blog as an online journal in 2006, and over the years it has morphed into a personal lifestyle and fashion blog. I have kept most of my history in tact for the sake of posterity, and I do still post memoir-style posts from time to time. Those posts are all categorized here under Diary.
Good morning! It’s a bright and beautiful Sunday here, with the sunlight glinting off the snow. I’m looking forward to church this morning and then a lazy afternoon, although we still need to take down our 2nd Christmas tree! Yikes!! So yesterday’s post was incredibly well-received. I’ll have to put that on my Google calendar so I remember to do one next year. (I do that when a post idea does extremely well!) I had fun putting it together, and I think it
As has become my habit, I’m going to end the month of December with a recap of the highlights (and lowlights) from the past year. It’s always fun to take a little walk down memory lane. 2016 has been a growing year, I have to say. I started the full-time fashion blogging in September of 2015, more or less as an experiment, and it went so well that I decided by the end of that month that I was all in,
Good moring from Maine! We made it here safely and smoothly yesterday, and we wasted no time finding a local restaurant for seafood chowder! After that, we headed down to the lake where my mom and dad were waiting for us. It’s so beautiful here. There isn’t any snow yet, but it’s coming tomorrow!!! We are all so excited about that. Today I’m tackling Part Two of my Q&A. I addressed blogging and fashion questions in Part One, and today I’m going to address
I just wanted to pop in and wish you all a Merry Christmas! I’m the only one up right now, just sitting here with my coffee, waiting on the rest of the house to rise and shine. I love this time of day with all the anticipation of the excitement to come. Even though my kids are big, we still keep everything a surprise, and they’re still young enough to get excited… well, my son notsomuch, but I think that’s
Well, it’s here! Christmas Eve! I’m sure most of you are busy baking and wrapping and cleaning and all the things I should be doing right now (haha!) so this may not the the best day to post such a text-heavy post, but you can always save it and read it later. Or perhaps this is just the diversion you were looking for! I had so many questions okay, let’s be real, I have so much to say about each question (brevity
Good morning! I hope you’re having a good weekend. I’m glad I got to hang out at home and relax on Friday night because yesterday was pretty nuts. I’m hoping to rest this afternoon and get rejuvenated for the week. I can’t believe Christmas is only two weeks away! This is the first holiday season in a long time that I’m not feeling hopelessly over-committed, so that’s good. I do have a few more gift guides I want to get out this week,
