I just wanted to post about Christmas this year because it was special in its own way and I want to remember it.
First, here’s a look at my decor. I love the way the tree looks and it’s such a heartbreak to put it away each year.
Also, no living [...]
So I am happy to say that even though I was injured, I could still put glitter and rhinestones on my nails for the holidays. I don’t know if nail technicians make house calls so I’m not sure what I would have done otherwise.

I guess this isn’t the proper forum to discuss the finer points of what happened to me last week but just know that I’m happy to be back to writing.
I was involved in an accident that left me with several injuries. I’ve been resting as much as possible with the best care possible from [...]
Every November on a weekend before Thanksgiving, my grandma has all of her grandchildren come over to help decorate the tree and make Christmas cookies. It doesn’t matter that I’m 25, tradition is tradition so I went over to help, too. I decided it would be a good idea to highlight some of [...]

My family had a birthday party for me last night and the highlight of the evening had to be when I opened a present from my grandma that she bought at the dollar store – a collar and hat for Julia for Christmas! It was tricky getting her to wear something so humiliating but she [...]
