December 10th, 2022 - Our wedding day was perfect. It was a small and intimate wedding with our closest family and friends in attendance. The day started with decorating The Dameverein Room at the Rathskeller. Michael's mom and step-dad, my sister-in-law, and my mom and dad all helped us turn the room into a romantic… Continue reading Gettin’ Hitched
I have a wedding photo dump coming up soon, but in the spirit of posting things on my blog more often, I thought I’d share some photos of my latest gardening endeavor. It all started with inflation. And empty shelves. And a never-ending quest to freaking find fresh herbs!! It’s become completely hit or miss… Continue reading Growing things…

2021 – The Year of Rediscovery
So, if you’re close to me, you’ve probably heard me talk about the fact that 2020 was my year of self-care. I’m a classic Enneagram type 2, so I’m always taking care of everyone but myself.
