Fun announcement to make today! I've joined a rad crew of local blogging mamas and will be contributing to the Cedar Rapids Moms Blog for the foreseeable future 🙂 I've been looking for ways to connect to my community, get out, and make new friends - so when I saw a call for new contributors … Continue reading New Gig = More Content?
I know I still haven't done this whole "consistent blogging" thing, but let me tell you - this winter has been a BITCH on my mental health. I'm sure I'm not the only one. While we wait for my adulty and/or creative juices to get fired up, let's enjoy this message from Ernie, my cat. … Continue reading Lessons in adulting… from my cat
Real talk: 2018 chewed me up and spit me out. It was great and hard and fun and miserable... it was a beautiful mess that I am so grateful for. But I'm ready for shit to settle down now.

Let's talk about some goals I've been setting; both blog-related and personal. If you know anything about SMART goal-setting, you'll realize that these are pretty terrible goals. They meet practically none of the criteria of a SMART goal. Buuuut pretty much everything in my life is hazy right now, so it's just par for the course. This adulting thing is hard, man.
Hi there, and welcome to this experiment in commitment, to which I have chosen to subject myself. I do hope you find something of interest here.
