Coming Full Circle: A Reflection (& Possible Revival?)

I started writing this blog in the month of June three years ago. At that point in my life, I was struggling to recover from a deeply painful and traumatizing breakup, while at the same time attempting to cultivate a sanctuary to express myself and my dreams.For a year and a half, I wrote about…

Endings and New Beginnings: Updates, Goodbyes & Resets

I did not post a blog in November – my first time to skip a month since I started writing last year. I simply could not get myself to do it; I couldn’t get myself to log on to WordPress PERIOD.So once again I apologize for all the posts I’ve missed from the blogs I…

Another Autumn Recipe: Pumpkin Butterscotch Muffins

I’m here posting food and displays again – this time in the true spirit of October. Pumpkin Butterscotch Muffins. My sister actually came across the recipe on Facebook weeks ago and tagged me in it, knowing how much I love butterscotch. And I was needing something else do a blog on for the month (let’s…

Pickles & Pumpkins

Aside from the rustic jars you find at a cute farmer’s market or treats you might buy at a fall fair, pickles are obviously not what comes to mind when you think of October and the Halloween season. I know this. But my garden cucumbers came a little late and I had to wait to…

An August In and Out of Focus

And when I say “in and out of focus” I mean mostly “out.” It’s been a struggle to write for my blog this entire summer. I’ve kept a considerably-decent emotional state (save for the politically-induced rage), but I’ve also felt a bit low on material to blog about. I mean, sure, I could be posting…

A Green Woman Salad for Beltane

So the plan was to post this blog yesterday, but my first day of May was extremely busy. I was up until almost midnight just accomplishing getting my photos in the draft and I had to call it quits and go to bed. Not that it matters, this isn’t a “holiday deadline recipe” or anything,…

Unmasking the Harlequin

Something happened last Tuesday. A week ago today and also exactly a week after my full moon anxiety attack. The man I’ve been talking about in my blogs since this past November finally contacted me. It was just past 9:30 that night of the 14th when I heard the text notification sound on my phone…
