1 Whole Year of COVID

This is the last picture I posted on my Instagram feed before the world came to a screeching halt. I was soaking in and celebrating what I like to call “false spring.” False spring is the first few days of beautiful weather to crack through winter’s misery. Those few...

My Work From Home Tips

We’re just a few days away from my 1 year work from home anniversary. On March 13, 2020 my department was asked to work from home in order for IT to test how our systems would handle so many people working from home simultaneously. That was a Friday and...

Life in the Time of COVID-19 | Week 50

It’s hard to believe we that the 1 year anniversary of Austin and I being home full time due to COVID is just 2 weeks away. The world has been completely out of sorts for nearly a year! That’s insane. Looking back at the blog it seems I haven’t...

Life in the Time of COVID-19 | Week 36

Long time to post! It’s been several weeks since I’ve made an update post and it’s crazy how much has changed in the world in just those few weeks. COVID is on the rise again and is even worse than it was in late Spring. The election has finally...

Life in the Time of COVID-19 | Week 29

The past couple weeks have cemented the fact that fall is here to stay! The farmers market has been packed with a variety of squash that we’ve certainly been indulging in – delicata are my favorite! I pulled out all of my favorite fall clothes and came to the...

Book Chats: Why Good People Do Bad Things by Debbie Ford

This week I finished up reading Why Good People Do Bad Things by Debbie Ford. I feel like this is a book everyone should read at some point in their lives. The way Ford breaks down the different facades we all tend to hide behind in order to protect...

Life in the Time of COVID-19 | Week 27

Yallll! It got cold this week! Like pretty damn cold! So its supposed to get back up into the 80s but I don’t care, I’m taking this as a sign that Fall is here and I may now fully embrace all of myths basic-ness. Last week I said on...

Life in the Time of COVID-19 | Week 26

Hey y’all hey! I hope everyone has been having a lovely few last weeks of Summer. I know my spirits have been high as Fall is my favorite season. I’ve been able to wear sweaters and I’ve been using pumpkin spice almond creamer in my coffee. Everything feels right...

Life in the Time of COVID-19 | Week 24

I ended week 24 in a rather physically uncomfortable place. I decided to start the Chloe Ting 2 week shred challenge midway through the week and I can say with 100% confidence that my body was not ready. It’s going to probably end up being more like a 3...

Lessons Learned From Gardening This Year

I am by no means of the imagination a master gardener. For me it’s a fun hobby to supplement our groceries during Spring and Summer (maybe a little bit of Fall). As much as I watch the YouTube videos and read the blog posts to prepare each year, once...

Life in the Time of COVID-19 | Week 23

This was completely unintentional but I took another weeklong break from my COVID update posts. It’s not my intention to turn this into a bi-weekly series, but it seems that it may shake out that way from time to time. Getting into what life has unfolded over the past...

Life in the Time of COVID-19 | Week 21

Hello world! I took a break from blogging last week. I just couldn’t bring myself to write for some reason so I took it as a sign that I needed a brain break. Our garden has finally exploded. I’m harvesting several cucumber a week and I finally was able...
