When I agreed to take the Mermaid Challenge, I didn't think I was going to get a lesson in fear, failure, and radical self-love. But that's how I roll, I guess, living life on the edge.Read More

Don't send a card if you don't really want to. Don't force yourself to fit a mold that wasn't made for you. Don't let others make you feel lesser for something you may have no control over. You are valuable. You are lovedRead More
What do we do when we hear others' dreams coming true and feel like our own are far away? We pick ourselves up and head down the path toward our dreams again.Read More
I haven't posted anything about this yet because house buying can be so fraught and unreliable, but we closed on a house yesterday! I had all these plans of taking pictures of Noah and me in front of it to share... and maybe we still will... but it was super rainy today (see "sad collie in wet yard" photo above). Also, there's no electricity at the property for a few more days so with clouds it was just too dark for photoing.
In a couple of weeks we'll be moving into our new little home and preparing for the long haul of renovation/repair work that come with homeownership. We're excited for it for now. We'll see how we feel as time wears on.
It'll be a new experience, a new city (even if it is just 20 miles from our old place). I've been working on expanding myself for a while and it feels like a new city will help me to do that. To reach further and more purposefully for friends. To stand more firmly on my own.
For Noah and me both, the large yard is a huge draw (and for Tag). We have horticultural dreams we would like to realize and artistic ones as well, and so though the space is small inside, outside there's room to stretch and grow and fill and be messy and noisy in.
Stay tuned for updates on house and garden adventures!
In other news, I'm on the last round of substantial revisions for Chasing the Wind. The end is in sight! I will keep you all posted on the pub date as soon as I have it available!
