Thunder and Rain

On February 10, 2013 By

I find the rolling of thunder to be so calming and beautiful as I sit in my giant white cozy chair that is reserved for only me. The dog is not allowed up with me in this chair and neither are the kids as I hope to keep the whiteness pristine, a shining beginning of [...]

January 2013

On January 3, 2013 By

January seems to be flowing in and flying by like December. I’m thoroughly enjoying my time with my kids home from school, and despite my public complaints about the husband spending so much time at home this holiday season, I have to say I’m sad to be seeing him off to work tomorrow. I’ve enjoyed [...]

When it gets cold outside there is nothing that makes me happier than a hardy winter soup and a piece of crusty bread. The problem is that I usually don’t have the time it takes to make a rich tasting hardy soup.  Needless to say I was on a mission to find a decent recipe. [...]

Rocker Chick

On November 5, 2012 By

I have talked about it before in The Joan Jett Denied. I have a weakness for the rocker chick who can for lack of a better, less lame phrase tear it up. When I see a girl musician, any musician really, but especially a rocker chick, I want to get lost in their music. I [...]

Lazy Sundays

On November 5, 2012 By

I love waking up to crisp, fall lazy Sundays in Oklahoma with the strong sunlight piercing in through my plantation shutters.

On November 2, 2012 By

Over the past year I’ve become obsessed with the idea of living in a tiny space, much to the thanks of me discovering The Tiny Life. I would like to say that I have some noble sensibilities such as being a great big environmentalist pushing me towards downsizing to a smaller ecological footprint, but that’s [...]

Nature and I have always had quite the battle. It doesn’t like me. I cringe every time I am outside and the Oklahoma wind blows something at me making me fearful that the next breath I take will result in tears, drips falling from my nose, and Benadryl hangovers. Fall is the worst of all [...]

Accept, Run, Relax

On September 17, 2012 By

I started running about a year and a half ago, and I found that I really enjoyed it. Actually, I really enjoyed it in the beginning. Then I became weirdly obsessed with it. This is pretty common for me to become weirdly obessesed over something. So to get out of this crazy place, I had [...]

The Joan Jett Denied

On November 17, 2011 By

Joan Jett, well-known for songs like “I Love Rock and Roll” and the band Joan Jett and the Blackhearts has a special place in my heart.  I was fascinated by her and all that she stood for when I as a young Oklahoma teen in the 80′s discovered the Runaways, an American all-girl rock band. [...]
