Ribbons & Detours

Sadly, I just do not have it in me to write something creative at the moment. My heart is heavy, so I give you a song and some lyrics. I hope you’ll enjoy it. Silverspun Pickups – Ribbons & Detours I can’t believe it You of all things It’s been a while Memories teem Some…

Should I Stay or Should I Go

She had a habit of being early for all of her appointments, which wasn’t usually a problem. No doctor or employer had ever complained that she was early. She hated being late, absolutely hated it. Naturally, she didn’t care too much for others being late either. However, as luck would have it…the majority of her…

Totally Zen

Asian themes are all the rage these days and when I saw these shoes from Phedora, I knew immediately that the only real way to do them justice was with my new Zen Garden backdrop. Afterall, there’s nothing more zen than lying naked in the sand with a pair of heels in the air, right?…

The Broken Clasp

She was just taking a walk in the park. She hadn’t intended on going to the very spot where they first met. She found herself frozen in her tracks as her mind wandered back in time. Remembering his smile and how beautiful she thought he was from the moment she saw him. She smiled as…

Let’s Go For a Swim

Part 3 of the Grace & Sady Road Trip We got checked in to the motel after our long and very rough road trip. Flipped on the television that shows nothing but “adult movies” and washed up. Despite the advertised pool being an above ground pool that’s oddly placed ACROSS THE STREET…we threw on our…

Grace & Sady Road Trip-Motel (pt 2)

Part 2 of the Grace & Sady Road Trip Grace and I have been driving for a while. We’ve taken turns at the wheel. We’ve flashed truckers. We’ve sang our hearts out. We’ve exhausted ourselves, but we finally found a little motel out in the middle of nowhere. Sady bursts into giggles as they get…

To AraCakes with Love

I grew up listening to my mom telling stories about hanging out at the soda fountain at the pharmacy after school. The closest thing I had to that was my last two years of high school, we’d all park at Corner Grocery, which was really a Texaco station, get drunk and dance in the gravel…

These Chains

“Even in these chains, you can’t stop me. Even in these chains, you can’t stop me!” In This Moment Big Bad Wolf The song I quoted above is one of my all time favorite songs and the moment I heard it I recognized the struggle with myself in the lyrics. I often find myself wrapped…

Holiday Weekend!

Whether you live in the U.S. and observe Memorial Day (not really a celebratory event) or in the UK where they have a bank holiday (that no one seems to know the reason for) or maybe you live somewhere else with a holiday today….for most people its been a three day weekend. In the US,…

Unlike Any Other

I was thinking about the mushy post I wrote the other day and how I said his love is unlike any I’ve ever known. I got to thinking about how often people say that about current relationships. I thought about how overused the phrase is and quite honestly, I got annoyed with myself for using…

When Did It Happen?

Record stores, newspapers, phone booths…they all seem rather obsolete these days. Technology has hurled us so far beyond these things, that all three are in the palm of hands. Yes, from time to time you’ll stumble across a used record store and the random DJ that actually spins vinyl, or even the purest that insists…

Damn, you look good!

So, my desk is in my bedroom…I love my bedroom. I spend most of my time in here. The other day I was just feeling so tired and I looked over my shoulder, thinking I heard a noise and my bed just looked so comfortable that I spoke to it. What did I say? Well,…
