Bucket Items Worth the Hype – USA

Last post was all about the places abroad you should visit, but not everyone has the budget and/or desire to go abroad.

Sunday Thoughts: Why am I blogging?

As I stated last Sunday, today I will get into why I started blogging. To many, blogging is a dying industry. Not because people aren’t interested in content, but new content is more visual than verbal. Social Media apps like Instagram, Snapchat, and TikTok are on the forefront of these mediums. I do love Instagram…

Monday Loves: American Water Spaniels

This edition of Monday Loves is not going to be about things I am looking to/thinking about buying. I am going to talk about my dog Chip’s breed which is an American Water Spaniel. American Water Spaniel’s are a rarer breed with only about 2,000 in the world. They were breed in the late 1800s…

Monday Loves – Favorite Teas

Until I started dating my husband, I was not a big tea drinker. My mother would always drink tea and of course going to dim sum restaurants constantly, tea was abundant. My husband enjoys growing vegetables and herbs, so he used to grow chamomile, mint leaves, and other herbs that he would make into teas….

Sunday Thoughts – Had a Great Week

Sunday Thoughts – Celebrating a great week This past week was really good. I generally downplay my successes and happiness as not to sound pompous or egotistical. This mentality comes from not only my heritage, but I also my childhood experiences. I had a great childhood, but I was definitely not the popular kid in…
