Really loving the Leuchtturm 1917 Notebook and the Bullet Journal Junkies Facebook group, as well as the #bulletjournal entries on Instagram for inspiration. Taking advantage of having a standing…

The music of Lucifer. Changing up my hairstyle. It felt appropriate to chop it off on the first day of summer. Summer sun, here I come! This summer playlist I made in Spotify, featuring lots of Mumford & Sons: Stargazing & Sangria. Seeing Peter Gabriel perform live with Sting on the Rock Paper Scissors tour. Highlights: Peter Gabriel singing If You Love Someone, Set Them Free in half time to the groove of Beck’s Where It’s At. Encore of Sledgehammer. Hounds of…

Love A La Carte features all the little things that make my life just a little more delicious. Cinnamon oatmeal cookie ice cream from the Dairy Godmother Watching the Tony Awards hosted by James Corden – it was my favorite Tony Awards show in recent memory and I was cheering for Hamilton throughout, but was pleasantly surprised by the other shows’ performances, especially Spring Awakening, which I’ve known about for a while, but haven’t yet seen. I’d really like to…

Love A La Carte features all the little things that make my life just a little more delicious. Ordering color-coordinating office supplies (namely the aqua color from Poppin) Beautiful spring weather – 50s in the morning, 80s in the afternoon, sunny and clear! Attending the beautiful wedding of some very good friends, near and dear to my heart. Being able to celebrate their two lives coming together was a huge blessing and I am so happy for them! Soft, spring…

22 March, 2016
book, letter, writing ideas

Love A La Carte features all the little things that make my life just a little more delicious. Paint & Sip Nights. Owl Crate. I got my first one yesterday and am so pleased. The Writer’s Block box included The Serpent King, which I’m loving after only the first five chapters, a pair of banned book socks from Out of Print, a quill pen, some awesome pins with writing inspiration, and another book – 642 Tiny Things To Write About.

Love A La Carte: When It Gets Crisp In The Fall

13 September, 2015
Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall. ~ F. Scott Fitzgerald

Love A La Carte features all the little things that make my life just a little more delicious. Taking the time to make character sketches and plot out my next novel. Pretty excited about this one! It feels good to get back into some semblance of creative flow. Skype dates. The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. Writing before work. A sense of accomplishment before 9 a.m. It’s wonderful! Fall is just around the corner. My favorite season! I can’t wait…

Half price burgers and wine night at the local sports bar. Being outdoors at Wolf Trap. Definitely one of my favorite places in the summer. Planning WAY ahead so I get to visit my parents for both Thanksgiving AND Christmas. So excited to spend time with them…
