Sometimes Summer Isn’t All That Bad

I am admittedly a terrible blogger.  I wish that I could say I have been going on awesome vacations or have been going through life-changing events.  Nope. My best effort at an excuse is that we only have air conditioning in our bedroom so the intense heat saps me of any writing ability when I …

This is what summer should look like.

I have been MIA lately. Too busy being outdoorsy. But really. I have been enjoying the following: And grilling fun things: Go drink more wine and get off the internets. Do it.

Lessons From My Mother

With the thought of the upcoming Mother’s Day holiday in mind, I have been reflecting on the wisdom imparted to me by my own dear mother. I feel like everyone has a few stock words of wisdom that were standbys of their own mothers.  These are a few that I now realize at 26 years …

Back Porch Sitting

The back porch has quickly become my new favorite place to relax after work. I may never watch TV again.  Ok, that’s a lie, a new episode of  Sweet Home Alabama is tomorrow and you can bet your sweet ass I’ll be DVRing that shit. Bubba is every woman’s soul mate, not just Paige Duke’s. …

And now I will show you how to be a hillbilly

Step 1: Live with this man: The end. Those are all of the steps required. Sometime our loud neighbors are out and we are the types who enjoy avoiding small talk with people we are forced to live alongside, so to enjoy some peace and quiet and play with Lola outside, we will sit on …

This past weekend I went home to assist with and attend my niece Madison’s baby shower. (She is due April 9!) Home = York, PA. This is 130 miles away from the Wilkes-Barre area (about 2 hours by car) so if I go home, I usually stay overnight.  Driving there and back in one day …
