Equal Pay Day and Unpaid Labor

  Happy Equal Pay Day!! Equal Pay Day marks how far into 2017 women have to work (on average) to earn what men earned in 2017. To celebrate, I am going to share a story.


A Year in Review: 2016

Wholly hell, how is it that 2016 is already over? This year seemed like the slowest year, and yet I have no idea how it is already coming to an end. It’s so cliche, by time flies. 


2017 Printable Calendar

I love calendars. Specifically, I love new calendars for new years. They represent such a lovely fresh start, I just can’t even. Right now my 2017 planner is sitting on my desk, and I often open it just for fun. It’s so clean and fresh and full of opportunities – all the things that will happen, all the future accomplishments! I know, I am … Read More 2017 Printable Calendar

Dear Hillary

Let me start with the polarizing part of all this. This is not about the election. This it not about politics. That said, let’s get all that out of the way before you jump to some conclusions about the intent of this. I did not vote for Hilary Clinton. I did not vote for Donald Trump. I did vote for Gary Johnson, a vote I … Read More Dear Hillary


It’s been an interesting 36 hours since the country selected it’s next president, concluding a fairly awful 18 month long presidential race. I felt like we – collectively – were going to lose no matter which candidate was selected. I’ve thought a lot about what our collective future, and my person future, looks like today and how that future is different from last week. … Read More Today.


The Holiday Questions

I love, love, love the holidays – but sometimes they drive me to drink. I’m sure you’re aware of this, but the holidays have begun. Starbucks just released their holidays cups (or, did they?), my email is full of holiday promotions and the mall is basically completely decorated for Christmas. It’s the first week in November. My husband will spend the next three weeks … Read More The Holiday Questions

The Girl on the Train is a mystery set in present-day London. The story intertwines the lives of three women, and the mystery of one of their disappearance.

Classy Chili

I don’t love the picture I have for this chili. I’m planning to update it with a new one, and I was going to wait to share this until I had the time to get a nice, new photo. One without random bell pepper slices, because those are not part of this recipe. Unless you what them to be. Then, go nuts. However, I … Read More Classy Chili



There is this incredible website called Cabin Porn. It’s exactly what it’s name says, porn, but of cabins. It’s not sexual, at all. Totally safe for work. Well, kind of. You might completely lose motivation to be at work and instead start plotting a way to run a way and live in any of the cabins, but other than that it’s perfectly safe for work. … Read More Daydreams


Rosemary Wine Roasted Sweet Potatoes

It’s starting to feel like fall here in Colorado, which means one day it feels like winter and the next day it feels like summer. I love the season change, but it does make heating or cooling our house a challenge. One day it’s too hot and we have to run the the ceiling fan at night, with all the windows up. The next … Read More Rosemary Wine Roasted Sweet Potatoes
