In case you haven’t noticed all the pink monstrosities eating up every grocery store entrance…Valentine’s Day is upon us. ONE WEEK, PEOPLE!

2016, You’re Done. 2017…Here I Come.

Last year I skipped the whole 2016 wrap-up + 2017 goals post. I love reading other people’s resolutions and it’s about time I did one of my own again. (Actually, I think I skipped only last year, so really it hasn’t been that long since I did this.) So . . . did … Continue reading

And, because I love sharing favorite things, I thought it’d be fun if we shared a list of our favorite things. 🙂 (But don’t … Continue reading

6 Gifts To Give Your Favorite Author Without Leaving Your Desk

Something I like to do every Christmas is to target an author. Not with a lightsaber or sniper paintball gun (though that’d be fun…), but with a Cupid Christmas arrow. I wrote up this post when I wasn’t an author, and then I got published and felt too weird to post … Continue reading

Being Skinny vs. Being Healthy

We all know that physical appearance is the big dragon that women are trying to slay these days. We have clothing companies either trimming down their humans into little waifs, or plastering “this model is not photoshopped!” on their ads. (Go Aerie!) I want to talk about the long-term stuff. What … Continue reading
