Summer’s Not Over, Yet It’s Been Busy

We’ve been up to so many things this summer. One thing that drives me crazy is that people assume that once school begins, summer is over. Summer ends in the end of September, and that is how I want to keep it! Although I will be homeschooling and such, I want to continue to do summery things while I can! I did make a few … Continue reading Summer’s Not Over, Yet It’s Been Busy

5 Reasons Why Christians Should Shop at Target

For over a decade, when I’ve had to choose where to go to do mass-needs shopping, it has always been Target.  Recently Christians have boycotted their Target shopping and get all huffy and puffy with me (also a Christian) if I mention Target in a positive way, without hearing me out. 1. There are 321.42 million people living in the US.  700,000 are transgender.  That … Continue reading 5 Reasons Why Christians Should Shop at Target

Life without a REAL Camera

I started to get into photography in December, 2001.  I had a manual film camera (Vivtar 35mm) that I loved using.  When the only photography film developing place (that I trusted and loved so highly) closed down in 2004, I went digital permanently, even though I had already been using a digital camera for about a year at that point. The Digital Cameras I Owned/Co-owned … Continue reading Life without a REAL Camera

Small Squares, Big Quilt

I decided to make a colorful quilt using bright rainbow colors from left over fabric I had.  Each square ended up being about 2″ after all the seams were sewn and when I realized that my quilt wouldn’t be large enough, I actually had to buy about 7-10 fat quarter bits to cut up and add to it before finishing the top. Then I bought … Continue reading Small Squares, Big Quilt

3 Ways I Am Improving

Sometimes I look through my old yearbooks and read what people wrote to me. This is as a reminder of who I may want to still be or who I definitely don’t want to be anymore now that I am an adult.  I guess when you see people writing in it everywhere, “Never change,” it starts to really cause you to wonder, “Why never?” I … Continue reading 3 Ways I Am Improving

Three Things I Realized About My Old & New Self

1. I have focused too much on my bad memories. I didn’t really have a bad childhood to most who would look into it and take a peek at my life, and I can tell you each of my parents had a much worse childhood than my own as did their parents before them.  The problem with my childhood is that I didn’t have much … Continue reading Three Things I Realized About My Old & New Self

Memories Involving 8 Films From My Teen Years

The only year I enjoyed in middle school was 1996/1997 (7th grade for me).  The girl I had considered to be my best friend at the time was going to have a movie night for her birthday.  Her family just got a sound system put in and we were officially 13 years old (my birthday was 12 days earlier).  She had a major crush on … Continue reading Memories Involving 8 Films From My Teen Years

It’s Okay to Date & Marry Guys Shorter Than You

I am 5’9″ and have always loved my height.  I was always into the idea of marrying a man who was taller than me. When I first saw Rob in high school, he wasn’t directly in front of me, but I was drawn to him.  I could tell he was short for a guy, but I didn’t realize how short at the time. It wasn’t … Continue reading It’s Okay to Date & Marry Guys Shorter Than You
