Can’t repeat the past? Why of course you can!

Adam’s 42nd birthday was last weekend. He had a cheat day from his healthy diet, and we went to Evo for pizza to end the night. It got us thinking about time, and how it flies by faster the older we get. We talked about the adventures we’ve had so far, moving around the southeastContinue reading “Can’t repeat the past?

Short version: got my hair done

The long version, of course, is a damn blog post. I went into the salon with a definite idea in mind, and it was inspired by one of my favorite bloggers, Alison Headley. She’s active online in different ways now than she used to be when I first discovered her blog,, a million yearsContinue reading “Short version: got my hair done”

Welcome to the new!

So I switched some things up with GoDaddy, which required many, many calls to their CS, and much patience on their part. The grand moral of the story was that I totally didn’t know the difference between and, so… there’s that. Mock me if you must. I’m still learning. But I’m back, andContinue reading “Welcome to the new!”

Hey, you like shoutouts? Apparently I do!

This one is for the pet lovers. My friend Jonathan is trying to get a new business off the ground. It’s all about healthier food for pets. Check out his GoFundMe to see what it’s all about! He’s passionate about it, being a dog owner and dog lover, and he’s done plenty of research. HeContinue reading “Hey, you like shoutouts? Apparently I do!”

Wow, you look… different

For those of you who’ve known me a while, or who’ve shopped my Poshmark closet, you know I’ve been lots of different sizes in my life. I’ve been everywhere from a size 00 to a size 15, and everything in between. It’s only recently that I’ve stopped being embarrassed to talk about that. Those whoContinue reading “Wow, you look… different”

Hey, let’s all get together and be sober! Whoohoo!!

I’ve heard the complaint that life in sobriety is boring. I certainly thought the same thing myself at first. But at some point, a switch flipped, and everything became kind of awesome. I can tell you when that happened, if it matters, because that date is more important to me than the date of myContinue reading “Hey, let’s all get together and be sober! Whoohoo!!”

Pretty is as pretty does (whatever that means)

I don’t usually wear makeup. Not that I think I’m Alicia-Keyes-beautiful enough to pull it off or anything. Typically, I just don’t feel like it. This hasn’t always been the case. Most of you know I sell Avon, because I’ve tried to sell it to you, via my creatively named website, Before that, IContinue reading “Pretty is as pretty does (whatever that means)”

“So, what do you do?”

It’s not a trick question. Everybody asks you that, from the time you’re out of high school or college. Somehow our identities are defined by what we do professionally. For someone like me, who hasn’t worked full-time in more than a year, this question gets awkward for meeting new people in the Charleston area. IContinue reading ““So, what do you do?””
