Navigating the Labyrinth of Social Media.

One of the greatest things I love about living in Utah are the slot canyons, the narrows, or whatever you want to call them. I just love the humility I feel while being sandwiched between two cliff faces that tower above my head that lead down vast corridors into unknown spaces and a series of... Continue Reading →

Cross fit Karens, and Oily Bitches

So, today I thought I would follow up on my last post about dropping off by checking in lol. No, but seriously, my goal was to stay off of polarizing and toxic social media outlets. Thankfully this has not been one of them. I just want to say I fell off the wagon Sunday. I... Continue Reading →

Canary in a Coal Mine

Hello out there! It has been a while. I'm feeling invigorated today because I've spent the last four days on top of a mountain away from technology and cell service which always allows my mind to hang onto a little more clarity.

Rolling with It

A friend of mine posted something on social media the other day, and like everyone else in these crazy times, we're all a little triggered lately and seem to have a strong awareness of our own individual pet peeves.

Lowered Expectations

Hello friends. I don't know if there's anyone out there who remembers MADtv but they used to run a spoof dating segment called Lowered Expectations. In this segment, they would run ads for potential mates that were off the wall and downright hilarious. One of my favorites was a woman who said she liked to eat... Continue Reading →

Ginger Snaps, Wassail, and Homemade Noodles

Greetings to all. I read something the other day that said, "your first draft is not crap." Essentially, it is a foundation and a bridge to greater things.

When 2020 Comes in Like a Lion

Greetings. I am going to try and offer up something substantial to the blogosphere in between brief episodes of telling my new puppy "not to chew on that."

Choosing Confetti over Dramatic and Moody.

Hello everyone. Apparently I just broke a blogging rule right off the bat. Beware of "catchy" sharp witted titles. Like... read my title again. What the hell does all of that mean?

Thoughts on Masha

Hello Blogging Universe! Sometimes you feel so vast and sometimes you feel so small. I never know if I am talking into a tin can or a megaphone.
