Six Months Later…

Guys- life has been so crazy!! I have a seven week old baby. She is beautiful and brilliant and everything she does is absolutely fascinating. She is a ball of energy and I now understand why I was so tired for all of my pregnancy- she was stealing all my zest! I took a long hiatus […]

It Might Be Someone’s Birthday

And by might by I mean definitely. Welcome to my favorite day of the year! Hope your day is as wonderful as mine.

Thanksgiving Traditions: Buffy Marathon

I was on Facebook today (because I am old and still use FB on the reg) when my feed showed a post I had written five years ago on this day: Time may pass but my Thanksgiving tradition remains- I still use each turkey day as an opportunity to catch up on the best episodes of […]

Rural Fun

Sometimes you have to make your own fun. This is the aftermath of one of these times.

What a Day for Some Music

I took this a little while back but it’s one of my favorite photos. I shot it at the Beaufort Farmer’s Market while the Six Pack of Gentlemen (Husband’s band) were on a break. Love the combo of instruments and nature.

Top 5 Dream Jobs

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about changing jobs. I know, I know- who would dare to dream of leaving the glamorous life of retail behind? The answer is me. I hate retail with the burning passion of a million suns. I can’t wait for the day when shops no longer exist at all, just […]

Mini Rant: Pinterest is Killing Me

It’s barely a secret at this point- Husband and I are trying to make a baby. We’re both very excited about the baby making process and the future result. Who wouldn’t be excited to create a future rocket scientist/model/violin virtuoso/pro athlete? I’m totally down with it. Absolutely looking forward to being covered in vomit and having […]

Witch Pumpkin

Last year Husband and I carved pumpkins together. It’s kind of our tradition, because it only takes something happening twice for it to be a tradition. Don’t believe me, look it up. For my carving, I went with a scary witch with a spider on her face. I am extremely anti-spider so I found it […]

New Year, New Blog

The new year is almost here and with it a renewed dedication to write more. I started 2013 off with a bang then vanished for the summer and posted sporadically in the fall/winter. I’ve been woefully unmotivated to write since moving which sucks because it’s something that I really enjoy doing. Part is having an […]

Scarecrow Pumpkin

Last year Boyfriend and I carved an amazing pumpkin together. I thought I would take this opportunity to share it with you.

Back In the Saddle Again

Hi! It’s me! I’m back! And fully loving exclamation marks! They are FANTASTIC at conveying my excitement! So I kind of took an impromptu two (plus) month break from the good ol’ blog. I’m not entirely sure how it happened other than I moved and became extremely busy/lazy. Odd combination, but welcome to the conundrum […]

Scarborough Memorial Park

I’ve been very into taking pictures recently. Well, back into taking them as I was shutter happy until about a year ago. I’m returning to form and excited to share the beauty I’ve captured. I hope you enjoy them too.

Two Lights State Park

Two Lights State Park in Cape Elizabeth is one of my favorite places in Maine. I like to take a book and sit out on the rocks, feeling the ocean breeze roll over me. I went out to take some pictures and the ocean was just beautiful. Nothing can beat this view.

Fort Williams and Portland Head Light

I’ve been doing a lot of exploring around lately, trying to capture the local beauty before I leave it. Here are some of my favorite shots taken at Fort Williams and Portland Head Light in Cape Elizabeth. Enjoy!


With the beautiful weather it’s been hard to stay inside. So I like to bring a little of the outdoors in with me.

Pretty Things

I’ve been in a horrendous mood all day and want to see something pretty. I submit for your approval the view from my future home. Sometimes it’s nice to have pretty things.

Little Things

In life it’s important to remember the little things that make you happy.

Are You Afraid of Embarrassment?: Tale of the Drooling Girlfriend

Have you ever been going through the day and had a memory suddenly come back to you? Only you aren’t sure if it’s a memory or something that you dreamed. This happens to me. A lot. Like most folks, I dream about my every day life on the regular. I also happen to be highly […]

Group Storytelling

In college my friends and I used to play a game where we would all sit at a table with notebook paper and pencils. You would start by writing a sentence at the top of the paper. This was suppose to the the first line of a story. Once everyone had written, they would pass […]


Even though I’m not a particularly touchy-feely sort of person, I enjoy seeing little acts of love between others. I don’t want to see people eating each others’ faces in the middle of the street, but little things like hand holding can be adorable.
