Each month I like to provide my readers a list of inspiration for writing. This isn't meant to be a checklist, or even a daily challenge. Take from these what you will. If you want to write every day, there's a small thought for each one in the month. If you'd rather pick and choose, … Continue reading April Journal Prompts
I don't know about you, but I have been pinching pennies to make this holiday meaningful. I'm making most of our gifts this year, but still trying to make them fun and festive. I've actually been bringing my lunch to work to make up for the extra spending. We all sacrifice a little this time … Continue reading Day #17, A Gift for You

On Christmas Eve each year, my mother gathered us around the tree after dinner. The few presents that preceded Santa were wrapped with precision, and adorned in pretty bows.

I know, best date ever. I was supposed to meet Aaron's sister there, … Continue reading Flying Solo
