Valentine’s Day

This Valentine's Day marks our third one together. By now, we know the little things that make this day special. This year, Ash Wednesday fell on the same day.

Quiet Morning

New Career It's been two months since my formal decision to resign as a high school English teacher (that'll be another blog post). It's been a bit of a whirlwind since then, but on this quiet morning, I'm working on a couple of articles and studying for my real estate exam. I'm slowly re-creating my... Continue Reading →

1st World Starbucks Probs

Starbucks has started a new line of coffee: varieties of blonde something-or-others. I tried one the other day and they’re pretty good.

Meghan Trainor’s "No"

I really do love Meghan Trainor's music. I think she has a spunky way about her and her music reflects that same spunk. However, when I first heard her latest song, "No", I kept seeing an image pop up. Like most things, I cannot help what pops in my head and while I can control... Continue Reading →

Guns N’ Roses Nashville 2016

For those of us who are Generation X, Guns N' Roses calls up memories of a skinny Axl Rose slithering across the stage like a cobra, mesmerizing his prey with Slash creating magic with his guitar - complete with top hat, curly hair all in his face, and a cigarette popping out of what could...
