WHEN INSPIRATION FLEES
I lie there hovering just below consciousness. It's 5:15 am and I can hear the sounds of morning. They seem somewhere just beyond my reach, as if I can't quite grasp them. Should I let them go and drift back to sleep or should I grab onto them and move into...

SMALL SPACE DINING IDEAS
There was a time, after I became a single mom, that my daughters and I were living in a small apartment and our dining space had to do double duty. My older daughter recently made the comment that she grew up thinking it was normal to have a sewing machine ...

LAZY SUMMER DAYS AWAIT
I have decided that I definitely need some lazy summer days. All of the stress I have had lately has caused my autoimmune problems to kick up and I have been getting very little done because of it. Just stretched too thin I guess.  I set myself down this pa...

I'M GONNA WRITE MYSELF A LETTER
