Summer so far…in pictures

Summer so far…in pictures

I had really hoped to be back up and running way before now, but since I last stopped by here, quite a bit has happened. I’ve continued to split my time between my home here in the Huntsville area, and my family’s home in Mississippi. Work and home improvement duties keep me busy while here, and many of my off days find me on the road. It was exhausting at first, as I was traveling every time I had time…

Checking in….

Checking in….

I don’t know what to say. It’s been a rough couple of months. Like, really rough. Really, rough, and really busy, and I had not anticipated I’d still be away from the blog at this point in the year. I’m living in a country song again right now, so I’ve been focusing all my energy on pushing through it. I don’t mean to make things sound melodramatic – I mean, they are, yet they’re not. I actually typed out the…

What I’m looking forward to this year

What I’m looking forward to this year

Ah, 2017 – now that you’re here, and have been here for almost a month, I am starting to feel a bit comfortable with you. I’m already off to a good start with personal and professional goals, and that feels really good! I want to continue to push myself enough out of my comfort zone for progress in all things I wish to improve, but not so far out that I feel I’ve lost sight of myself. This week marks…

COVER REVEAL! Rocked Up by Karina Halle & Scott Mackenzie

COVER REVEAL! Rocked Up by Karina Halle & Scott Mackenzie

But first….can I just say how excited I am to be a part of this cover reveal? I’ve been a fan of Karina Halle for years now. Her romance novels span a HUGE array of sub-genres, and I would recommend each and every one of them to any reader. Yes, they are that good. And now? Now she has teamed up with her husband to write Rocked Up. It will have a sexy rock star, laughs, and will no doubt…

So far in 2017….

So far in 2017….

A new year is upon us – and I have already made my first thrifted vintage purchase: I had never heard of Guelph Coffee before. But doesn’t it sound delicious? So January is just flying right on by, and I don’t know whether to be thankful or frightened. On one hand, I certainly don’t want to wish my life away. On the other hand, the faster time flies through winter, the faster spring can get here. I am just hoping…

Waiting for Santa

Waiting for Santa

So obviously, NaBloPoMo was a big, fat bust for me this year. I really did give it a shot, but I was just too busy, stressed, and tired to deal with it. But with the year coming to a close, I have a few posts lined up to wrap things up and even some knowledge to impart! So I am very excited to be stopping in during the holiday madness. But first off, on this very warm Christmas Eve (currently…

Libbey “Holiday” for Jack’s Santa Glasses

Libbey “Holiday” for Jack’s Santa Glasses

Manufacturer: Libbey USA Year Produced: approximately 1976 Earlier this fall while out thrifting, I came across these fun, festive, and super-cute Santa glasses, and of course I had to bring them home with me! I recognized them immediately as Libbey’s “Holiday” Santa tall cocktail glasses from the 1970s. In fact, according the the catalog at that link, these were around in 1972. But my set was different. Obviously branded for a holiday promotion with Jack’s Restaurants, they were in such…

I wasn’t thinking.

I wasn’t thinking.

I clearly wasn’t thinking when I made the commitment to #NaBloPoMo during an election year, and as a result, I’ve been on a self-imposed, week-and-a-half long break. I’d probably sit this week out, too, but as it turns out I am now sidelined with a pretty serious sinus infection which has kept me housebound for several days. I may as well catch up. Long story short: I knew the election was going to be bad, and take a lot out…
