Here we Go again

Hey good looking, did you miss me? I missed you. Guess what. I’m back. Woot! Maybe not full time, but we’ll see. I really want to keep at least one of my new years resolutions which was to write 36 blog posts this year. I’ve written 30 so far and I am so close to […]

A Title More Creative Than “Update”

What’s shaking? Did you miss me? Don’t get too excited, I’m just popping in for a moment. I’ve missed writing so I thought I would share with you all about what’s been going on in the last few months. After I stopped writing my plate was a little less full, but for some reason I […]

It’s Been 12 Weeks

What’s up friends? I hope that all of you are feeling as good as I am feeling today. Seriously. I got so much sleep last night that when I didn’t get up until 6:15am I didn’t even feel guilty because I knew I had enough energy to crush the rest of today. (And today has […]

From Making Do to Making Home

Let’s talk about something a bit more frivolous today. I have been moving towards changing the style of my home from Replaceable Walmart Kitsch to a Vintage Durable Curation. After my second daughter was born last year, I fell into some poor shopping habits. Even though we adjusted our budget I was regularly overspending. As […]

Elderlion Syrup

I have been looking forward to this for months and talking about it for weeks and it’s finally here and I’m so excited I can barely contain myself to write this freaking post! Whew. *deep breath* The name for this recipe is a bit like the name of my little homestead. Dangerous Dandelion is a […]
