Getting personal on being alone.

January and February have never been my favorite months. It’s bitterly cold most of the time, dark, and just generally depressing. (This is a positive post I promise.)

My own Wig Wam = all my childhood dreams came true

The Kansas City Plaza lights are still up so I can still pretend it’s the most magical time of the year and not January if I want to, right?

After a couple weeks of jotting down stuff, it finally struck me that it’s Memphis. It doesn’t have to be perfect.

A couple of weeks ago I panicked. I searched for tickets to the Moon River Music Festival and found that even a week before the event, it was sold out completely. I had my heart set on going, and I was mad at myself for procrastinating. I started madly searching discount ticket sites to no avail.… Read More The weather here is like a nice big warm hug: Moon River Music Festival and a tangent on my love of the river. And music.
