I'm back! I attempted several drafts...in December...then in January, trying to succinctly sum up last year and offer hope for 2017. But truthfully, I've been a little down. 2016 was a good year for Grief Happens. I posted regularly, saw an increase in views and gained more followers, but for some reason, rather than feeling … Continue reading Happy February!
Happy Tuesday, my loves. Are y'all as happy to see February as I am? Did our pal, the groundhog, see his shadow in your neck of the woods? My children are both having cognitive jumps, apparently.

I miss all my blogging pals. I'll … Continue reading I Want to Hibernate and Read
Before I dive in to the bulk of this post, I need to waste a few lines complaining. I’m about to show my Southern roots when I say this, but this cold weather is kicking my tail, and I need vitamin D in the most dramatic sense possible. I know. I’m setting myself up for … Continue reading Book Talk for Enduring Shameless Yet Guilt-Ridden Whining
Summer has been busy! I've been doing better living in the moment than recording it, which seems to be a bit of a problem for me as a writer. I'm also adjusting to being with my children ALL day. I didn't think I had much time when they were in preschool for three hours, but … Continue reading Summer Update
