Down Memory Lane

Down Memory Lane

After a little over 17 years away, I recently made a trip back to the city I grew up in. The trip was primarily to attend my niece’s wedding and (finally) catch up with family, who I had not seen (other than online and in photos) for those 17 years. It was a journey filled…

Tiny by Design Part 3

Tiny by Design Part 3

So many decisions to make and so much information to digest. That’s how my husband and I felt as we continued our research project into going tiny.

Don’t Fear Change

Don’t Fear Change

Change. It’s a simple word, yet invokes such a wide range of responses from people. From fear, hate, love, embrace, accept; feelings run a wide gamut and are very personal.

Moving Sucks

Moving Sucks

The title is pretty self-explanatory as moving (really) does suck, whether it be just around the corner or across the country. Admittedly, not everything about it is that bad; new location(s), new people, new home. It’s all the packing and physically moving everything you’ve accumulated that I dislike. It’s really surprising the amount of “stuff”…

Mental Illness Is Not A Stigma

Mental Illness Is Not A Stigma

May is Mental Health Awareness Month It all began in 1949, Mental Health America (MHA) started an awareness campaign to educate the masses about mental illnesses.

10 Traits and Facts About Rat Terriers Almost 4 years ago, my husband and I found the cutest little rescue pup. With her hazel colored eyes and small brown nose nudging my hand through the cage, my heart melted. I read her biography card…hmmm, a rat terrier? I knew next to nothing about the breed…
