It’s been two days since I wrote anything for it. I can still catch up but let me share an update on how the process is going so far. Changes will in the works I pictured one story in my head and something different is on…

Why I have few friends and why that’s OK

People can be unnerved by how little I engage in conversation. It’s a trait I’ve had for as long as I can remember. My mother used to tell other parents “She’s counting her words.” I’ve never been a talkative person. It’s difficult for me to keep in touch with people I don’t see every day. It’s one of the reasons why I have few friends. But you know what? That’s perfectly fine. In a world of extroverts and a culture…

So it’s important to take time to think about what…

We took a break from summer plans

summer-plans

Most times Sander and I pride ourselves with keeping busy. We book our weekends with fun plans and enjoy the down time by cuddling our dogs. This year has been a bit different. We’ve had few summer plans. Our weekends have been stay at home days where we spend time playing video games or reading. The weather has been nice enough too. I often sit with the windows and french doors open to invite in the balmy breeze. These lazy…
