Bad Karma

If this were the first time something crazy happened with the plumbing where ever I lived on a holiday, I would just call it bad luck. […]

Home. Tired. Stitched. And Ready to Cry.

Feels like I’ve been gone so long…..

Here’s to randomness (if that’s even a word) since I don’t even know where to begin…… I’m super bummed that I missed a nostalgic “I’m thankful” post. I just can’t bring myself to write it now though.

Jacob John (oh how I love this shot) Yesterday and today it snowed. Last week we arrived in Southern CA in our long sleeves and pants and sweltered in the 90 degree heat. Even though the bulk of my life has been passed in CA, I wasn’t expecting the heat in late November! The second […]
