(Don’t) Gotta Love It

Dear Reader, Do you also force yourself to like things or is that just me? Good habits can be hard to form, in fact, sometimes they must be forced. When I was younger, I was not a big fruit eater. The first time I started eating fruits regularly (scarily enough) was not until high school.... Continue Reading →

Sugar, Sugar Everywhere

Dear Reader, Once again, I’m going to write about sugar. If you follow my blog, you may remember that I am trying to cut down on my added sugar intake (more here). That, like most things in life, is easier said than done. After a few weeks trying (to greater and weaker effect) to cut... Continue Reading →

You Can’t Buy Elbow Grease

Dear Reader, Buying used products can be hit-or-miss. While I have been very happy and grateful to buy and receive used clothes and supplies, every once in a while I am blown away for all the wrong reasons. My most recent used purchase was a beautiful red bicycle… or so it seemed. If you follow... Continue Reading →

Merry Christmas — Lite

Dear Reader, Merry Christmas!! And what a Christmas it has turned out to be! Christmas time is the “most wonderful time of the year,” but does this sentiment ring true in 2020? I, like very many of you out there, was unable to have a family gathering this Christmas. Scrolling through Facebook, I see that... Continue Reading →

Grin and Barre It

Dear Reader, Fortunately, the pain came as no surprise. Not too long ago, I read the book Primates of Park Avenue: A Memoir by Wednesday Martin (more here). In the book, Martin recounts her experience in a barre exercise class with a flock of fit, well-to-do mothers. She describes how her muscles trembled as she... Continue Reading →

Nothing to See Here

Dear Reader, One of the best feelings in the world is the exhilaration of being alive and present in a beautiful moment. Cameras can help us capture these moments and photographs allow us to preserve them indefinitely. I have many such moments stored right at my hip in my trusty iPhone. In fact, I have...

Eat Me

Dear Reader, Do you have a sweet tooth? I certainly did (and I have the cavities to prove it!). Hundreds of years ago, sugar was known as a “fine spice,” however, today, you would be hard pressed to find products without even a dash of added sugar. Believe it or not, even my Listerine mouthwash... Continue Reading →

Manic Pixie Dream Film

Dear Reader, I have a movie that I hold near and dear to my heart and I bet you’ve never heard of it. For some reason, I have the uncanny ability of loving unpopular or obscure things. For example, when I was a teen, I was obsessed with the 2006 “Superman Returns” movie and watched... Continue Reading →

Better with Age

Dear Reader, Say it once, say it 1,000 times — age is just a number. And never was this axiom more apparent than when I went on a hike with group of 50-to-70-something-year-old individuals. In previous posts, I discussed how I became interested in hiking (more here) and how I am participating in the activity more... Continue Reading →
