We’ve been in our home for almost 5 years. When we purchased it, it was brand spanking new but at the time we bought it all finishes were picked and installed. That means we didn’t get to customize it at all. No big, they chose pretty neutral finishes, a weird seaglass kitchen backsplash, and a […]
They say with age comes wisdom. While I don’t disagree I also can’t profess to be an expert on anything. Literally, nothing. There are things I’m better than average at, sure. Things I’m not the worst at, but definitely don’t feel as though aging has brought about endless fountains of knowledge and wisdom. There are […]
Valentine’s Day is my favorite. I know I said the same about Halloween but really it’s a pretty equal tie between the two holidays for me. The things I love about Halloween are totally different from my reasons for loving Valentine’s Day. Valentine’s Day is everything pink, and red and love and light and fluffy. […]
I’ve never been an early bird. Early morning seminary was a form of hell I’m sure. Being forced to wake up early after working until closing every day, gah. I was, by default, a night owl. I was able to get my work done, homework done, eat dinner and fall asleep at a somewhat reasonable […]
What the what? It’s January. Like not just the first either. We had the besssssst Christmas break. I slept in until 7 almost every single day, hung out with my people, worked a little bit, snuggled the pups and dumpling, and watched the Mandalorian. Who else is obsessed with baby yoda?? Yeah, us too. Our […]
For 12 years, on January 6th, we have done something as a family to remember my sister-in-law, Kristy Palizzi, who was murdered by her husband. It was her 30th birthday which means Kristy should be about to turn 42. We would have definitely had a big black over the hill party, obviously when she turned […]
Some people make New Year’s Resolutions. Some people don’t. I don’t like to make a promise I can’t keep so I choose a word to get me through the year. I’m not just talking blog posts, but that’s definitely an aspect that’ll be included. I mean nutritionally, physically, spiritually and even in my housekeeping. I […]
Hi guys, it’s me. The GRINCH. Ok, just joking. I’m definitely not as equally parts cute and terrifying as the baby grinch. Usually though? I have such a deep abhorrence for Christmas and the whole Christmas season. I definitely blame my years of retail and working at a credit union inside a grocery store. They […]
It’s been a year of health related experiences and now I’m going ot shift my focus to bringing fitness back.
Music can inspire. It can help you write that book, or that blog post, or that essay. It can pump you up to finish that workout, or go that extra mile or hell even that FIRST mile. (Seriously Jay-Z Run This Town was my JAM when I was learning how to run.) It can bring you in touch with emotion or help you through a difficult time in your life.
