Labors of love

This weekend I spent a lot of time on the administrative aspects of this little art biz. Making tweaks and adding functionality to this website, setting up an email newsletter and automating as much of that as possible, starting a Facebook page, converting my Pinterest account to a business account so I could get some …

Projections

I see them Sad eyes Blank stares Shallow conversation Going through the motions “Is this all there is?” Cries from their empty insides I wonder what their stories are and what brought them here, and if they will ever wake up and escape? Do they even know it’s possible? And then I wonder If what …

Spring fever

It’s Saturday night and I’m already feeling a mixture of cabin fever, exhaustion, and just plain irritability about everything in sight. I’ve worked from home too many times to count this year with both girls (and sometimes Ronnie) stuck at home with me due to sicknesses and weather. As grateful as I am that’s it’s …

When I grow up

I can count the number of times I wrote in 2018 on one hand, and that is not okay. The need to create is in me (it’s in all of us actually), and it’s not something I get often enough at work to bring fulfillment. And at home I’m living in mostly maintenance mode just …

Earning It

Florida vacation is just around the corner. Twenty days to be exact. And while I’ve been looking forward to it for the last few months, I haven’t been able to really daydream about it lately and focus on the reality of it’s approach like I’ve done for many past vacations, mainly because work is super …

Workin’ for a Livin’

I’ve mentioned before how much I love my job. It’s not exactly what I pictured myself doing 7 years into the professional workforce, but it’s not too far off either. I knew I’d be in marketing, but I didn’t realize I’d be into geeky marketing, otherwise known as Internet Marketing. And I wouldn’t have expected …

Brag Time

Most of this blog is filled with stories of Skyler and the joys and challenges of our life with her, along with a few random thoughts of my own. But today, I’m going to carve a post out for both my husband and myself, because in all honesty, for all of our hard work, we …
