Wedding Dreams

It’s funny how no one ever told me that I should start dreaming about my wedding.  I just did.  From a very young age, I pictured, fantasied, and imagined what my perfect wedding day would be.  Maybe it’s because of the Barbie dolls I received, or the stories I read, or maybe it’s something innate...

Writer’s Block

Sometimes inspiration comes when you’re least expecting it.  And other doesn’t come at all. You stare at a blank page for far too long, wondering what to create. Writer’s block is my good friend.  If you follow my blog at all you’ll know that I only post a couple times a year.  You might... Continue Reading →

2018 has come to an end, and from all the social media posts I’ve seen in the last few days, it seems 2018 has been a hard year for everyone.  But 2018 has been a great year for film! So as you try to push away the winter blues that are setting in, here are... Continue Reading →

Social Media and Lasting Joy

I’m kind of obsessed with social media.  Because social media is this strange phenomenon.  No other generation before us has had this kind of platform.  They didn’t have ways to share their thoughts and photos with everyone they knew (and some people they didn’t know).  Life was more private, and yet still just as enjoyable....

A Christmas Tree

I took off my glove to feel the soft needles of the pine tree.  I smiled and closed my eyes as my mind flooded with memories of past Christmases.  Just the smell and feel of the tree could bring back the sound of Christmas music, the smell of hot chocolate, and the laughter over gift...

As we celebrate Thanksgiving this week, I wanted to share what I’m most thankful for this year.  I am so thankful for my boyfriend, Jared. Yes, I know it’s cliche and cheesy, but it’s true. He has been and continues to be a huge blessing in my life.  Continue reading and I’ll explain why I’m... Continue Reading →

“Everything has been so busy.”

“Everything is so busy right now.  Let’s get together when things slow down.”  I feel like I've heard and said this a lot lately, and it making me question what it is about our culture that values busyness as opposed to rest? We may not like to admit it, especially because the life of leisure... Continue Reading →

Heartbroken Part 2

It’s begun.  The 2018 football pre-season.  Normally this time is full of excitement and anticipation for the season to start.  Normally I’m eating up the social media coverage of Packers training camp, and excitedly reviewing the game schedule.  Every year I’m looking at tickets for games at Green Bay and lamenting the fact that they...
