A clotheshorse I am not

      1 Comment on A clotheshorse I am not

This week I face the daunting task of sorting through every article of clothing I own and deciding its fate.  Granted, this will not be as painful as it would have been six months ago since I have purged quite a bit, but it’s still not that much fun.

Twin Cities: Travel Tales (Part 1)

      No Comments on Twin Cities: Travel Tales (Part 1)

Where have I been? I went on an adventure to see my boyfriend who currently lives in the frozen tundra of the Twin Cities. OK, it wasn’t that bad.

Did you know that it’s fall? Other parts of the country are experiencing cooler temperatures and leaves changing colors. Northern California just has to be the stupid rebellious teenager. It’s still in the 90s here. The trees are still green. The only hint of fall is that it’s dark when I wake up in the morning to get ready for… Read more »
