Things I have learned while hiatus-ing. (A novel update)

March 10, 2016

“I don’t follow rules. I don’t really know what I’m doing, I just do things that feel right.”     -Yann Martel I thought I’d pop back in here to give a little update as to how the novel writing is going, but also to somehow record/journal parts of this awesome journey. I have learned so much about myself just in these past few weeks and it’s important to me that I don’t forget a second of this part of…

Do your friends place you in your best light?

January 21, 2015

This quote is one of my favorites, bookmarked in one of my quote books from years ago, but I think of it often. Our new home is really starting to come together, however the walls remain completely bare. The reason being because I’m missing my picture-hanging-helper-buddy (aka: Christian, who is still out of town) and need to wait until he gets back to officially hang up any art work. He and I have a system – he holds the picture…

Radical Silliness. (Happy New Year)

January 1, 2015

“What if you wake up some day, and you’re 65 or 75, and you never got your memoir or novel written; or you didn’t go swimming in warm pools and oceans all those years because your thighs were jiggly and you had a nice big comfortable tummy; or you were just so strung out on perfectionism and people-pleasing that you forgot to have a big juicy creative life, of imagination and radical silliness and staring off into space like when…

inspiration quote


June 28, 2014

I’ve blogged quite a bit about my love for change. Part of it stems, perhaps, from the dreamer in me but I think it’s also about updating the things around me as I “update” and grow. When I first started this blog, I had an overall idea of what I wanted this space to be but of course hoped it would grow and evolve over time. In the short time EG has been live, it’s grown into something so much…

A Day of Rest.

May 18, 2014

“God never asked us to meet life’s pressures and demands on our own terms or by relying upon our own strength. Nor did He demand that we win His favor by assembling an impressive portfolio of good deeds. Instead, he invites us to enter His rest.” – Charles R. Swindoll Wishing you all a beautiful & restful Sunday XOXO Don’t forget to check back here tomorrow for Grateful Heart Monday + week-long Linkup!…
