I’ll Work on It–All of It

Hello! It’s me…your cranky neighborhood friend, back at it. 😉 I apologize, again, for my annoyance with the folks needing to vent in my last blog post. I was being rude, and way too inwardly focused. Rarely, do I see something shared on Facebook that makes me reevaluate my own thoughts, but today I did….

Hey Extrovert, You’re Gonna be Fine

Another week of self-quarantine has wrapped up in my house. We’re at week two, day four now. (My husband and I take a shot each night to count the days, and to celebrate getting through the day. 😉 ) Today, the official ‘shelter-in-place’ order kicked in. It won’t really change anything for us. (The biggest…

Sean and Draken Get Married

I believe I have about 17 blog posts that I’ve written, or partially written, sitting in my draft folder currently. I come here, I have huge ideas, I write my little heart out, and then I doubt the entire thing–so, I don’t post it. It’s not so much writer’s block–it’s more of a posting block,…

Bunker Hills Family Photos

Hello! I’m just dropping by to share a few of my favorite pics from last weekends family session. I, believe, this is the eleventh year we’ve worked together!? (That seems like a long time, for sure–but, even longer when you think two of the kiddos hadn’t even been born at that point!) This year, we…

Anoka Family Photography

Hey! I’m back with some photography today! All those dandelion recipes were fun–but, I figured I should pop in with some work stuff, too. 🙂 A beautiful backyard, full of blooming lilacs, was the catalyst for the the timing of this family photo session. It was really fun for me to swing by their home…

Dandelion Lotion Bars

Hello again! I’m back with the Dandelion Lotion Bar recipe that I mentioned in my last blog, the lip balm blog. (Also, did you try to make the lip balm? Do you love it!?) This is a super simple recipe (even easier than the lip balm, I think) and it doesn’t take long at all. …

Dandelion Lip Balm

Hey, there! I’m here with an update, and a recipe today. Way back in the winter, I took the word ‘calm’ and decided to make it my word for the year. So far, I’d give myself about a B- for my efforts. I have room to improve, but am happy with my efforts thus far….

Spring is Here–At Least at the Shop

Wow, guys. This weather is fierce. I’m sitting on the couch tonight–as a fresh, four inches of snow, blankets the ground outside. (And, as my dog snores up a heckuva storm of his own, might I add.) Tomorrow’s weather is looking like a roller coaster of a day–bring on some rain, some sleet, some ice…

Updates and Links

Tonight finds me on the couch with a boatload of editing up on my laptop screen, and the Golden Girls streaming on the tv screen. The dog is curled up next to me, snoring away; and, through all of this awesomeness, I’ve recently decided that my eyes are a bit too tired to keep the…

Rick and Maggie are Married

Oh…I have some pretty stuff to share today. 🙂 This past weekend, you know–the one with the winter storm warning, and all the rain and then all the snow–well, in the middle of that whole mess, Rick and Maggie got married in a peaceful, bright, ceremony in Bloomington. The snow falling outside, made their evening…
