Give Paws

I recently made a trip to visit a trio of lion cubs at my local zoo. They were just the right combination of fluff and chaotic cuteness. Following each other around the habitat, occasionally checking in with mom or taking a playful swipe/pounce at one of their siblings. It was a pleasant, wholesome way toContinue reading “Give Paws”

Groggy Gratitude

The arrival of spring has me feeling a little groggy (yay allergies!) and in search of gratitude. If that sentiment has you rolling your eyes, I get it. Most of us aren’t wired to focus on the positives. If we have a headache, we generally won’t feel grateful for our pain-free knees. In my searchContinue reading “Groggy Gratitude”

Rainy Day Ramble

We’re in the rainy days of spring here in the northern hemisphere. The days that tend to get categorized as dull and grey are necessary for those gorgeous spring days and the summer that will eventually follow. These days aren’t just a requirement or a price paid for the “true spring”, but are actually delightfulContinue reading “Rainy Day Ramble”

I would like to bring your attention to the squirrel in the above photo. I think that in one way or another, we’ve all found ourselves in similar positions. Not literally, hopefully. Although, if you have found yourself sitting awkwardly in a bird feeder, please feel free to share in the comments below. On aContinue reading “Survival Squirrel”

Tolerable Tradeoff

Spring has arrived. I know it to be true not because of the date on the calendar, but because of the newly returned pulse to my sinuses. Before I go too far down that self-pity path, I will say it’s a tolerable tradeoff for the return of a bit of color. Still, spring is notContinue reading “Tolerable Tradeoff”

Frosted Farewell

Spring is just around the corner here in the northern hemisphere, which means we’re in the final days of winter. While many may be more than ready to bid a fond farewell to the freezing temps, I am not one of them. That’s not to say I don’t enjoy spring. I went out this pastContinue reading “Frosted Farewell”

Reroute to Rest

Last week I found myself needing a reminder that I am only one person. I can only do so much. Despite my best efforts to be productive always sometimes a break can be a thousand times more beneficial than pushing through. Of course, taking a step back before a break is needed is even better.Continue reading “Reroute to Rest”

A Little Love

A few years ago, I purchased a miniature rose plant. Before adding it to my windowsill garden I gave it a name, as one does. Mr. Thornton is a northern gentleman with a fondness for southern sunshine. He can be a bit prickly but is also sweet…sometimes. This week, I’ve learned something new about myContinue reading “A Little Love”
