What’s New?

Happy Monday!

I’m sure maybe two of you have been wondering where I’ve been, and I’m here to tell you! As ever, I am staying busy, pursuing new hobbies, drinking a lot of coffee, and listening to podcasts. Here are the big updates:

Marshall got his neck brace off!

It’s been just over 3 months since his accident, and Marshall is finally moving through the world with no crutches and no neck brace! He’s finally been able to start physical therapy and is making great strides in his recovery. I’m overwhelmed with gratefulness and praise – God has been so good to us.

I opened an Etsy shop!

Because I have so much free time on my hands (lol) I finally fulfilled a long-time desire and opened up a vintage Etsy shop. I’m obsessed with vintage home decor and glassware, and I love trying to find treasures at thrift stores, but I don’t have the space or budget to buy everything I like. Re-selling is the perfect solution! I have a blast hunting for unique finds, researching them online, and setting up beautiful product shots to post online.

You can follow me on Etsy or Instagram to see what’s happening there, if you’re so inclined!

I’m getting fit!

I don’t know if you noticed, but the past year and a half of my life has been… challenging. There’s been a lot of stress and grief, and I’ve been busy, unmotivated, and inclined toward comfort eating, which is a pretty deadly combination that left me feeling lethargic, unhappy with my image, and frustrated with my overall health. Now that things seem to be finally settling, I’m getting back into a gym routine and paying attention to my eating habits, and I’m already feeling better. I want to keep a good thing going, so I’m saying it publicly: I’m getting healthy!!!

So, that’s where I’ve been! All these changes in combination has meant less blogging, but I do feel happy and like my quality of life is improving, so I’m OK with it. Of course, as always, I want to try to write more but I’m not going to worry about it just now.

Stay well, my friends, and I’ll post again soon!

I am a Ventura, California native with a compulsion to create. I'm a storyteller, through writing, photography, and occasionally music. Weekends are for camping with my husband, reading, and hunting for vintage treasures, which I sell in my Etsy shop, Peace & Goodwill. My favorite things include lavender lattes, swimming in the ocean, true crime podcasts, The X-Files, and Peaky Blinders. I hope to become a full-time writer, bestselling novelist, and a continually improving reflection of God's grace. Proverbs 16:24
