Work Space 2016

Despite battling an unexpected summer cold, my 2015 ended on a mushy, comfortable high. Yesterday afternoon I surrendered to a surge of inspiration and we rearranged the lounge furniture for about an hour.

After numerous tries, we finally got it just right, but our nerdy satisfaction didn't end there. We then went to visit Lucy & Lilly*, ordered a take-away roadhouse dinner, and settled in with Pan's Labyrinth to ring in the New Year.

I hope this feeling of utter contentment lasts throughout most of 2016, and that the new writing nook will spurt forth a wealth of creativity.

We'll give them another week or so.

The Why Whatever the reason(s) behind my massive weight gain over the past 15 years, I've finally had enough when it dawned on me that although weight has nothing to do with worth or beauty, lab results are the kind of numbers you need to pay attention to (more on this later).

I was done with my lack of discipline.

I was done with unhealthy choices…

Just FYI: "Let them eat cake" is a phrase widely attributed to Marie-Antoinette, but according to, she probably never even said it.
