Welcome to Gratitude Gems, where I show a little appreciation for the good things in my life! It was my birthday yesterday, and I have lots to be thankful for!  I got to hang about in my pajamas for as long as I wanted, and I played video games, and I read, and I got lots […]

Gratitude Gems: 13 Months Off

Welcome to Gratitude Gems, where I show a little appreciation for the good things in my life! I am extremely grateful today, as today marks the first of many Mondays where I don’t have to go to work!  As of Friday last week, I am officially off work due to pregnancy!  My maternity leave will […]

A Simplistic Dystopian Read

As part of my reading challenge, I had to read a book I should have read in high school.  Initially I had no idea what I’d read to fulfill this requirement, and then a friend of mine asked if I’d read The Giver. Apparently, she read it in high school and was surprised that many […]

A Poetic Pregnancy

Because I’m feeling all sorts of feels lately, I find my emotions best summed up in verse!  Enjoy!

Gratitude Gems: No More Shoveling

Welcome to Gratitude Gems, where I show a little appreciation for the good things in my life!

Gratitude Gems: Walking is for the Birds

Welcome to Gratitude Gems, where I show a little appreciation for the good things in my life! I had to walk to work this morning for the first time in a loooooong time, and boy what a drag!  I’ve come to realize that I really, really didn’t appreciate all that my body was capable of […]

Home Office Space

I’ve had the opportunity to work from home every once in a while now for well over a year – probably going on two years at this point.  I’m lucky to have a manager that believes in providing the best possible working environment, and if that means allowing an employee some time to work on […]

Gratitude Gems: A Whole List of Things

Gratitude Gems: A Whole List of Things

Welcome to Gratitude Gems, where I show a little appreciation for the good things in my life! Here I’ve missed two Mondays in a row, and that’s just unacceptable.  It’s not that I haven’t been grateful, but I’ve just been too busy and/or lazy to make note of it here!  So in classic catch-up style, […]
