on turning 30

I turn 30 in November. I’m not upset about it, so don’t expect a woe-is-me post. (Though, this blog contains an unfortunate number of those, if you’re into that sort of thing.) I really don’t feel that grown up. Perhaps because I’m not making as much money as I thought I would be at this … Continue reading

A Scrooge? No Sir, Not I.

A Scrooge? No Sir, Not I.

This year, instead of making the 10-hour drive to hubby’s parents’ house for the holidays, we’ve decided to stay in town and hibernate. Although, I really do love visiting them during this time of year. It resembles what I would imagine a Rockwellian holiday home to be – complete with the smell of fresh-baked goods … Continue reading
