I have been in the process of coming off of my anti-depressant and anxiety medication so I’ve been taking a little bit of a breather while I’ve been reducing my meds and processing all the feels. #funtimes   As a result, I haven’t been posting as much as usual, but I’d like to take a moment to share (and expand upon)…

    Today, more and more people are exploring alternatives to traditional ‘bricks and mortar’ houses than ever before.   A person’s home is an expression of who they are, a place to call their own, decorated with carefully chosen items and furniture which reveal much about the owner’s character.

But what if we aren’t yet sure what that looks like?   Although I could write ‘til my fingers are numb about why you should be striving to live life your own way, I maybe don’t stress often enough that it is OK if you don’t know which way that is.   It is absolutely fine to not know what you want, what…

    I am loving me some recklessness right now! I feel so full of the giddy joys of summer that I had to write this down, lest the feeling starts to fade as the days draw in…     Before we get stuck in: I like to think I usually write from a place of intention and semi-well thought out usefulness.
