Ok, if you know me, you know that this is my FAVORITE season. Though over the past few years it feels like autumns (and even springs) in Maryland keep getting shorter and shorter! We've had a weird summer with some cool fall-like days, so I feel like I was given a small piece of heaven … Continue reading Happy First Day of Fall!
Good lord, how long has it been? Three years? Really? Yikes. The world has changed a lot in three years, hasn't it? My world is certainly different. I moved (again). I am a proud cat mom to two of the craziest furballs to ever walk this earth and are currently watching me type this. I … Continue reading Well, hello there!
So I don't know if it's just the introvert in me, the fact that I'm talking to people 10+ hours a day or that I haven't had it in forever, but I can't tell you how much I'm enjoying my "alone time." And before we go any further, please get your head out of the … Continue reading Slow, but steady start
It’s amazing how quickly life can get away from you. For me, it’s been a tornadic series of events that started out the beginning of this year and continued on to the present.

A week ago my nephew graduated high school. HIGH SCHOOL. Screw quarter life crisis, more like quarter life meltdown at this point! I was not able to attend due to each graduate getting a limited number of tickets but was definitely there in spirit as my teacher and father were sending me pictures of the … Continue reading I died and went to spaghetti squash heaven
Morning! Both my father and grandfather served in the US Navy, so I've always been used to seeing pictures of anchors, air craft carriers and Navy emblems while growing up. It's one of the neat things I can share with my dad as I am not actually in the military, but work for it! He … Continue reading Treasury Tuesday: Anchors Aweigh
Whew. A quarter of a century. 25. Here we are. Do you ever look back and wish you could have a conversation with your 15-year-old self a la Jack from "30 Rock" minus the whole exposed to a leaky gas-pipe thing? Every once in a while, I wonder how that conversation would go. I often imagine … Continue reading So here we are, Twenty-Five
That was quite a lengthy title, no? It seems fitting that my first legit post is the merging of my two lives: personal/crafty and work. After-all, those are the two most important (and time-consuming) parts of my life as of late. Backstory: I met Maren about a month into working as a temp for our … Continue reading When Worlds Collide: The Tale of Marens Bridal Helmet
