A post on the brevity of life: Make short lists and make amends quickly.

Warning: This is not a sugary post. Sometimes work, especially in the winter, can make you feel like you just sat through an emotional punching bag, where you are the bag in the situation. My job can at times be very emotional and personal, but even if you’re not in that career situation, let’s be… Read More A post on the brevity of life: Make short lists and make amends quickly.

“Put it in your phone, let’s do some business…” – overheard at Beauty Shop brunch

Dreaming of yesterday’s brunch? Yeah, me too. I live in the South and people here like to brunch. Breakfast? Not so much. Brunch? Yes.

I have the permanent crunchies

I’ve never been a big soup eater (see previous post about only eating soup with buttered grilled cheese). I appreciate some substance to my meals; hearty, crunchy bites of food that can’t be sipped through a straw. If my body could stand it I would probably be happiest eating extra crunchy chips – any flavor… Read More I have the permanent crunchies
