I made this. My mom doesn't really like it. I kind of like it, though. It's like a simplistic version of the St. Benedict medal.
So, it's pretty likely that I have funny, talented friends and that someone approached me and was like, "Hey, I'm throwing an event. Could your improv troupe come and perform?" And I was all, "Ummm, I don't really have an improv troupe...but, OK!" And then I picked some of my favorite teammates and asked if... Continue Reading →
Today I'm wearing a vintage dress I bought at a church rummage sale. The fabric is light and summer; it's covered in outdated-yellow polka dots that are speckled with an occasional teal. I think this dress is fantastic, even though it isn't a perfect fit. The light-weight material is PERFECT for the summer. The flow... Continue Reading →
I feel like I could have earned the girl scout badge for wedding-participation this weekend. Shower on Friday, wedding stuff day on Saturday, another shower on Sunday. That's three couples/ three weddings...one weekend! Now, I attend the wedding showers with my dear sister Christine. In true form, we usually attend and then chat out our... Continue Reading →
Dewd. So, I wrote this but then was out too late fulfilling social obligations to post in a timely matter. Whatever. It's Friday. La la la. --- 1 --- Yesterday we had a lovely gathering for people who walked the Camino with us...both this past summer and the past time around. Bob provided a lovely... Continue Reading →
Soooo one of my super awesome coworkers is going in for the party that is a medical procedure. Woo hoo. I made said-coworker this card, utilizing e-card magic and my own sense of humor. I expect a call from Hallmark any day now.

We were both sitting outside listening to some jazz at an outdoor stage when he inquired about the soup I was eating (recipe link, thanks... Continue Reading →
Blah, blah, blah. I started typing out the history of my faith life just now. But I bored myself and figured that wasn’t a good sign. Someday if we meet in real-life, real-time, we should go out for gluten-free pizza and talk about our experiences of faith and I’ll elaborate there. But, not here. Instead... Continue Reading →
Today is the Feast day of St. Maximilian Kolbe. It snuck up on me, it did. I know that his Feast day is August 14th, but I finish my Marian Consecration tomorrow and so I was focused on that instead of thinking about today. And yesterday as I sat at the kitchen table with Christine... Continue Reading →
Thanks for your well-wishes, oh friends and blog-readers! Camping was a great decision (even though I didn’t have time to clean my shower this weekend. Small matters). We arrived on Friday, after having gotten ourselves lost not once but twice. We being my sister and I. We drove into the campsites in her car, scanning... Continue Reading →
