If you’ve met us for realz, you know our little girl attends the @phoenixschoolsalemma and LOVES it. She’s in kindergarten and her favorite things are pizza Friday (@adriatic_salem), using her imagination in the Maker’s Space, and regular visits to the @peabodyessex (in particular learning about Chinese culture). Our little girl’s classmates are a culturally diverse… Read More Where would you go if you could travel anywhere?
November is my favorite month. I love the fall rains. The chill in the air that means it’s hoodie & scarf season. Wearing my doc martins and making sure everyone knows they’re vegan because that is the kind of person I am. The chaos of Halloween in Salem has come to an end, we’re getting… Read More Five Witchy Ways to Give Thanks
American politics are in complete chaos – still. I’ve had to deactivate my facebook. I refuse to listen to the news. My sensitive soul can’t stand the policies being put in place that harm people I love. From the theft our our nation’s public lands by hungry investors, to using military force to block refugees… Read More Trans Rights are Human Rights
Recently I read my four and a half year old (that half is SO important!) “Just Being Audrey” by Margaret Carrillo and Illustrated by Julia Denos. We were so late to bedtime because I made time to go to yoga for the first time since October (thank you for the Fleetwood Mac class, Rebel Yell!).… Read More The Audrey Look
When in college, I participated in a program to provide peer to peer support for young women impacted by rape and domestic abuse. The thing I remember most was that on the last day of our training, one of the participants shared that she was a survivor. My heart dropped and I felt uncomfortable. I… Read More Walk for HAWC
Why would anyone would want to hold another life so precariously in their hand? A hunk of cold, black metal the only thing between your own warm hand and the ability to stop someone’s heart from pushing blood through their body. A man-made machine created to kill. Designed to steal another’s life from their body.… Read More Have you heard of Sarah Winchester?
When I was a little girl, my family bought a lot of our books at yard sales (tag sales!) and flea markets. I still love a good used book! One of the most influential books I’ve ever read came from one of these days of shopping – Born Free, by Joy Adamson. My copy is… Read More Musings: Born Free, Joy Adamson
This afternoon, after I took Poe for her after work jaunt up the street, upon stepping up onto my deck I noticed the most giantest spider I have ever seen in my whole life. She was crawling around on the most intricate spider web I’ve ever encountered, all the while carrying some bug under her… Read More Along came a spider
As I finished this book on a middle school field trip to Six Flags, my husband (a teacher) leaned over and mentioned that the two most recent books he’d read were written in present tense (like “The Storied life of A.J. Fikry”) and he wasn’t a fan. Honestly, I hadn’t even noticed the variation, but once he… Read More Musing: The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry
This is going to sound silly… but I recently had to leave a Facebook group – and it’s really weighing on me. I left this group because someone posted their disgust for the upcoming re-release of Beauty & the Beast. I asked if she’d ever read the original tale (which is quite different from the Disney… Read More Who is beautiful, really?
