A letter to my favorite authors

I may not be good at it but I love writing. I’ve loved it for as long as I can remember. I loved it more than hanging out with children my age. In highschool I wrote in my free time. I was an active member in the creative writing club until it’s founders graduated and the club disbanded. When our high school created its first creative writing class, I was 1 of 5 students to sign up. In college I took…

How we celebrate our Shiba Inus’ birthdays

Our ladies celebrated their birthdays last month! Booker is now 2 years old and Haru is 1. It’s been a rollercoaster with these two Shiba Inus but I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world. These two mean so much to us that we celebrate their existence in our lives everyday. It’s only once a year that these little ladies get older so we take the time to go the extra mile. Baked goodies Last year I baked a…

What’s up with Booker and Haru

October 4th is World Animal Day. It helps to promote better animal care standards, but also reminds us that animals are living and breathing creatures. It’s a fantastic day to donate to local shelters or even adopt a pet that’s in need. We have a full house so we’re unable to do that. What we can do is give our dogs a little extra love. I figured now would be a great time to give an update on how our ladies…

How I created my blog bullet journal

I’m notorious for forgetting things. I also love looking at bullet journals. Last month it hit me, why don’t I create a bullet journal that helps me remember things! I never thought about keeping a bullet journal for a few reasons. One, my schedule will never need a journal. I spend most of my time at home working on personal projects. Two, I don’t socialize a lot and any plans are usually on my Google calendar. Instead I decided I…

What I’m looking forward to this autumn

I know it’s not even September but I’m already thinking of Halloween. And of course Halloween isn’t the only reason why I’m excited for the end of summer. While I don’t have too many things planned just yet I do have a small list growing. DIY Halloween Decor I had so much fun last year making my Nightmare Before Christmas jars. This year I want to do a little more around the house. I’ve already begun to think of how…

How to document your summer

Let’s face it, summer is short. Sometimes we want to hang onto those moments for a little longer than we can. That’s where those lovely summer memories come into play. I have a few ways that I like to create and document my summer. While they aren’t anything new, I hope it sparks some inspiration for how you can create and document your own summer memories. Photograph everything I try to take photos of everything. If I don’t have a…

How I made the choice to move abroad

The end of summer is usually a place for new beginnings. I figured I would talk about the reasons I felt moving abroad was a good choice to make. This isn’t a post about the whole process of moving abroad. I’m still in the middle of becoming a permanent resident of The Netherlands. This is more about the reasons why I left California. Sander was a major reason, of course, but he was not the defining factor. Relationships are two…
