More About Summer Reading
If you read yesterday's post about the summer reading program I participated in at church, you may have noticed that I didn't technically answer the question "How does reading aid your spiritual growth?". While answering, I didn't address the fact that I wa...

In My Mailbox
Tentatively trying theme days again, so I may as well start with an easy one: on Tuesdays we talk books. So! Only one of these actually arrived in my mailbox, but whatever. All from this weekend: P.J. Hoover had a book signing! She's my favourite local auth...

The Darkest Skies Will Someday See the Sun
Well, yesterday was nice & depressing, wasn't it? Thanks for coming back today for something (slightly) less sad. After melting.  Another day, another non-Les-Mis crayon art, this time from my new obsession, Next to Normal . This didn't turn out quite like ...

Into The Dark
This weekend, I decided to give the crayons a rest (okay, not really-- I'm starting my next crayon art thing as soon as I get done blogging) and try a different crafty thing. So, if you spend a lot of time pinning Les Misérables  things like I do-- you know...

Look to the Rainbow
More crayon art! This one is a (slightly modified) quote from the musical Finian's Rainbow , not only because it's a quote I've loved for many years, but also as further proof that I do know about musicals that aren't Les Miserables. :D  So, the proper quot...

When Good Resilience Goes Bad
A couple weeks ago, I did this:  Don't ask me how. The penultimate night of Camp NaNo was taken up with an emergency room visit, the final night my boss asked me to stay late to finish something at work (it was a Friday as well as being the end of Camp NaNo...

What I Read On My Summer Vacation
This summer, the church I attend ran a reading initiative to encourage everyone to use the new online resources that the church library has, especially the review feature. Those of us who reviewed books received gift cards to Half Price Books and were asked...

What Not to Say
I promise I was already planning this post before I read Rachel Ward's excellent piece, "I’m Sorry I Didn’t Respond to Your Email, My Husband Coughed to Death Two Years Ago," (don't click if you don't like to read sweary things!!), but this isn't going to b...

I'm Holding On, and I Won't Let Go
Six months ago today, I woke up a widow. (Be warned that this post is not going to get any happier from here.) Things since then that should have been major life changes--moving, graduating, complete change of job responsibilities at work, an ER visit--they...

Overture, Curtain, Lights!
I mentioned in passing on Twitter a few days ago that I'd been to the theatre many times this year-- much more than probably any other year of my life thus far. There are a couple reasons for this-- one being the obvious, that it's a hobby that provides a s...

Being Bookish
When Keely & I were making our must-see lists for New York, #2 on my list (after Ramin Karimloo, natch) was Strand Bookstore . I've wanted to visit the Strand ever since the first time I read Dash and Lily's Book of Dares, in which the Strand is a major cha...

It Shoulda Been You
Today is the last day for this beautiful show to be on Broadway, so it's just as well I don't have the kind of readership to drive a stampede to the ticket office, because it's too late. Which is a real bummer. Posing with the sign before the show. Me dress...

Story
Tagline
I'm a collegiate, thirty-something, earth-loving, bicycle-commuting, runner-girl Christ follower. And I write things.
Introduction
Married to Chadwick, social media and communications person at BikeTexas, MA student at Texas Tech University. I shop at HEB, grow my own tomatoes (kinda), check out all the books at Austin Public Library, and on Sundays you can find me at Red River Church. All the rest of the time, catch me on Twitter, unless it's been a long day and I have computer closed, phone turned off, and a book open!
