Did you see? I did a thing! 

I blogged! And I’m back here on a regular basis now.

7 best wine and cupcake flavor pairings

And did you see the color of the month shop? So much green goodness!

Thank you

Thank you so much for all your kind, supportive comments on my post at the beginning of the week. It feels good to come clean, so to speak, and share a bit of what we’ve been going through.

But never doubt – the outlook is positive! The future is bright. There is lots of happiness to be had around here. Elle keeps me smiling and laughing every single day. No shortage of personality with that little one!

A sweet follower sent me the following passage this week. It meant a lot to me, so I thought you all may appreciate it as well….


It is brave to feel emotion. It is brave to fight for your heart. It is brave to show up for each other.  It is brave to forgive.  It is brave to start over.  It is brave to love.  It is brave to let go.  It is brave to not fit in.  It is brave to dream. It is brave to be you.
