November Recap

November Recap

November was mostly quiet and low-key. It was a Whole 30 month for me that was mostly successful; I took a few liberties throughout the month and then towards the end there were a few meals that were definitely not compliant. I think going forward I’ll do it for 2 weeks or so at a time, maybe a full 30 days once a year or so. I feel a lot better when I eat cleaner so I plan to incorporate…

October Recap

October Recap

October seemed like a short month for me. I spent over half of it -16 days- in the Southwest on a road trip. Joe and I drove from Washington through Oregon and Idaho and on to Utah, Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada, and back home. For the rest of the month I pretty much just ate out with friends in anticipation of doing Whole 30 again for the month of November. New ReleasesAn Easy Death by Charlaine HarrisMuse of Nightmares…

September Recap

September Recap

For me September was busy and held a variety of things. I started the month off in North Carolina visiting family and celebrating my nephew’s third birthday. We have had cooler weather in Seattle since the end of August and Fall weather is definitely in full swing now. Here are some highlights from the rest of the month: New Book ReleasesIn Paris September 4 Vengeful September 25 Instantly French September 25    The Little Swedish Kitchen September 25The Botanical Bible…

Whole 30: My Story

Whole 30: My Story

Anyone who has known me for any length of time knows that Whole 30 is not something I would normally do. I love food and I want to eat what I what, when I want it. Regardless, Whole 30 has been something that has been on my mind for a few years to do as a reset and a way to take a step back from the way I’ve been eating for so many years. I know my body hasn’t…

Spring

Spring

It’s April 8th and Spring temps aren’t anywhere in sight in Seattle. From what I can tell it is still in hiding across the country. Maybe soon?

Emerald City Comic Con 2018

Emerald City Comic Con 2018

I just finished two almost-full days of ECCC. Each year I refine my game plan based on the year before and I feel like this year went great. The first and absolutely most exciting thing I was there to do was to get my hands on an ARC (advance reader copy) of Kill the Farm Boy by Delilah S. Dawson and Kevin Hearne. They are two of my favorite authors and I am so beyond excited that they are writing a…

ECCC 2016

ECCC 2016

After something as exciting as a three-day comic convention it takes a little while to digest everything. I was properly tired Friday night and went to bed at a decent hour, but Saturday night I was so happy and excited from the day that I stayed up until past 11pm and my brain woke me up at 5:30 wanting to think about all of the fun things that had already occurred. Friday was mostly panels for me. I went to…

Turning 29

Turning 29

Turning 29 was much more weird than I thought it would be. I’ve never given much thought to ever being out of my twenties; it’s not that I thought I would be in my twenties forever, they’ve just lasted for almost ten years and it seemed like they would just keep on going forever. I still have the rest of the year to go, and while 9 years of my twenties saw me graduate college, travel to Europe for the…

Currently, Currently

Currently, Currently

January always feels so… new. I also have my birthday at the end of the month so it is one big time for new beginnings for me. Instead of resolutions, I like to choose new directions I would like my life to go in. Sometimes they’re big, sometimes they’re small, and sometimes small decisions lead to big life changes. My main goal this time last year was to get a new job, and I finally found one in July. The…

” A Lot Can Happen In A Year”

” A Lot Can Happen In A Year”

There have been big changes around here! I originally started to slack with my posts here while I was interning for Urban Craft Uprising, the best and most awesome craft show that just so happens to be in Seattle. My primary duty was to post vendor and author interviews on their blog and facilitate giveaways. The closer to the show we got, the busier I was. Then, I worked 29 hours over three days while the show was going in…
