A little side hustle/hobby of mine is the Ebay store I created with my mom a year ago. We flip things from places like estate sales, garage sales, thrift stores, etc. It's something I love doing. The hunt is thrilling, you never know what you'll find or what will catch your eye and when it … Continue reading My Ebay Side Hustle: What’s Sold Lately
Today is my birthday. But, this year has been cancelled, so I'm staying the same age until next year - unless that gets cancelled too.
It's been a long while since I've written a blog post on here. Not that I've forgotten about it, or even that I have moved away from Dallas...at least not physically.

On top … Continue reading I Stopped Doing Yoga And Started Doing More Of This
Better late than never, right? So it's been a few weeks since our friends, Quiet Company, brought rock 'n roll to Dallas' downtown sculpture center. The group took stage at The Nasher's monthly "'Til Midnight" event on June 19th. Though the temps were high, and the crowd somewhat stationary, the boys proved that it's never too hot … Continue reading Quiet Company At The Nasher
Just when I thought Mother Nature was finally done throwing seasonal surprises our way, my own mother sent the following text message. (Please be warned…if you can't stand snakes, don't look) Of course, curiosity got the best of me and, like a human, I enlarged the image. Blegh!!! Unreal! And look how … Continue reading Snake Me Home
I've recently been trying to get back into the habit of reciting positive affirmations. I did this a few years back and it really helped me begin to see life in a different way.
