on seeing myself {and the photos that got me there}

I was able to slide into a last minute headshot slot last month at the Allume conference. I had just cut bangs, and my last headshot was over a year old, so in general I thought it would be worth a $20 update. Today the photos were made available for download, and I...

on Redemptive Sloppy Joes {a Gooseberry Patch recipe}

The seasons, they are a-changin’ round these parts. Temperatures have been in the 30’s and 40’s, the sun is setting around 5:00, and tomorrow is supposed to bring real snow! So it’s a cozy food kind of week, starting out with these BBQ/sloppy...

on showing myself grace {a OneWord365 update}

I’ve realized this week that I’ve been slowly chipping away at reaching my  OneWord365 for 2013, but haven’t done even one update. Oops =) The word I chose for my year was ‘soft’, and though I haven’t done an official update...

on the parade of perfect that I don’t see

I keep reading posts about how everyone only shares the shiny pretty parts of their lives. Posts about how we have to stop comparing our lives to others, because all the others are only sharing the best parts of theirs. Posts about how we should be real with each...
