When A Milestone Is A Millstone

Last week I celebrated my birthday. A milestone. Yet it felt a little like a millstone. It was something to look forward to but yet I also felt some dread.

Transitioning From Summer to Fall

5 reasons I’m sad to see summer go: As summer goes, it brings all the outdoor activities with it. Bye bye to summer usually means bye to ice cream cones and frozen yoghurt too. It’s really easy to get dressed in the summer – what with shorts and tank tops and sandals being appropriate for almost everything….

Healthy Food Haul

Sometimes you just need to get some healthy food in your fridge.  I’m not perfect. I don’t just buy vegetables and fruits. But it really helps to have them around so I can make good decisions sometimes. check out this Instagram post from yesterday (P.S. Are you following me on Instagram? Why not? Clearly, I…

Thursday Treats
