29 - The Year of Crushing Goals

It’s hard to believe that I’ve entered the last year of my twenties. I have to constantly remind myself that I am an adult. And I have been adult for several years. There are times when I still feel like I just turned 21, and I don’t have a worry in the world, but in reality, I’m in my late-twenties, with bills to pay, a wedding to plan and a full-time career.29 is shaping up to be a pretty big year with our upcoming wedding and our goal to purchase a home of our own. We have a lot to look forward too....more

Do You Remember Why You Started Blogging?

I could do a nice in-depth list on what drew me to the blogging world. I do like to make lists. It's probably my Type-A personality. But this isn't a list kind of post. This is the story of why I started blogging. I've told bits and pieces of this story on and off since the blog began. Particularly when I was trying to brand the blog and figure out what I was doing.

I Am A Guillain-Barre Survivor.

At 4 years old, you never expect to end up in one of the largest hospitals in Boston, surrounded by doctors in white coats, enduring test after test, prick after prick, all in the name to walk again.But I did.Let me back up. 25 years ago this coming April, started out like any normal month. I was an active four-year old. An only child of two wonderful parents. I was in pre-school, and was getting ready to enter kindergarten in the fall. I loved arts and crafts, playing on the swing set, and just being a typical kid....more

Monthly Book Round Up - February

Another month down, another book round-up. I think I like doing this much more than individual reviews! Sure, less blog content, but this isn't a blog all about books. And if I wrote reviews for every single thing I read, we would have at least a couple reviews per week.In February, I read 6 books. Still not a huge amount for me, but better than January. Let's get right into it shall we....more
