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, […]

Concerning Underwear…

Concerning Underwear…

I made myself a goal to update my underwear situation in my 32nd year.  I desperately needed new underthings, and it seemed like a fun and easy goal for myself to go buy some new things and celebrate looking and feeling good. Then a few things happened over the course of my year: I got a […]

Gratitude Gems: Working From Home

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

September Fitness Challenge: Just Keep Biking…

In terms of fitness, September, and to a lesser extent August, has mainly been about doing my best not to sit on my butt all day every day.  As I mentioned last post, I’m pregnant (!) and while we’re very excited about that, it’s taken a toll on my body.  My best efforts to get […]

Goals: Playing Catch Up

I’ve completed a few more goals (or partial goals), but each on their own didn’t seem worthy of separate attention to the tune of individual postings so I decided to combine them and do a little goal catch up! #30 I walked on the beach!  With my husband!  Barefoot!  I wish I had taken a […]

Gratitude Gems: So… Tired…

Welcome to Gratitude Gems, where I show a little appreciation for the good things in my life! I’m exhausted today.  Last Wednesday was our anniversary and so we had a full day of doing whatever the heck we wanted together because it was also a stat holiday and we both had the day off!  Getting […]
