I’ve been meaning to share this book I read and absolutely loved! A true story from the 50s about a woman who didn’t have much left, but saw an opportunity and rode with it. Literally. I love this grit story and highly recommend this read.  “In 1954, 63-year-old Maine farmer Annie Wilkins embarked on an […]

Creamy Italian Chicken Pasta

Someone’s weed is someone else’s wildflower. Paintbrushes will always be mine. It’s been that way since I was a little girl.

I used to absolutely crumble if someone I cared about misunderstood me in a negative way. I’d spin for days. Weeks! I’ve had friends tell all […]
