Friendship Lessons from my Dog and her Best Friend

Photocred: Curry’s parents. A little over a year and a half ago, my husband and I brought home our very first (and only so far) puppy. We did not know what we got ourselves into. At the time, we were overwhelmed because Brady was the most hyper dog we have ever met. But now, we…

You’re Enough Even If Life Isn’t Moving Fast

I woke up this morning feeling creatively frustrated and impatient. This happens ALL the time haha! I felt like my life wasn’t moving fast enough – you know, that feeling as if your goals are far within reach or that you’ve missed the mark. I’ve learned over time that this is a part of my…

Are You Choosing Your Friends or Are They Choosing You?

It’s called integrity. This principle…

The Beauty in Mistakes

Two week’s ago, I learned how to knit for the very first time. It’s been such a great “hygge” activity, especially for the winter/holiday season. Life can’t get any better than snuggling with my dog and hubby on the couch with the TV on just for background noise, and my favorite cup of hot tea,…
