Beautiful fall!

Oct 18th, 2015

Today was the most perfect, beautiful fall day we’ve had all year, and I enjoyed it at a couple of great state parks with my lovely husband. Winter will be here before I know it; I’m glad we made the trip out on such a beautiful day and got in a little sun.


Novel draft: Complete!

Sep 14th, 2015

I’ve wanted to write a novel for a long time.

A wedding gift for my friend

Aug 16th, 2015

Now that the wedding date has passed, I’m excited to share the gift I made for my best friend’s wedding. Her invite said that they didn’t want gifts, but how best-friendly does that sound?
