On this beautiful summer day, I present to you a haiku about what goes through my head every so often when doing my "grooming" routine... Ode to Eyebrows Uneven eyebrows, Are a total plucking pain. Beauty standards suck.

Fly

Another addition for Olde Poetry Monday, this one circa 2009. Please enjoy.   I don't get why people tell me, "never change." If I stayed the same, my biggest dream would still be to sprout wings and fly away. It's cute when you're five, but I don't think they have a major for that in... Continue Reading →

Simple

The first whiff of coffee in the morning. A new book on a rainy day. Fleece-lined leggings in winter. Singing a song you love at the top of your lungs. Popcorn at the movies. Hitting snooze on your alarm and not having to actually get up. Finishing a really strenuous workout. Finding out your favorite... Continue Reading →
