2021 Year End Writing Recap

Hello, folks. It's the end of the year, which means that I'm taking a moment to look back on all of my accomplishments this year!

Back in Virginia

After a great deal of traveling and further adventuring, I got back to Virginia a week and a half ago.

The S.O. has decided to extend his contract here for a time,... Continue Reading →

Halfway through my sabbatical

Can you believe it? We're officially halfway through my sabbatical, and it's really weird. I wanted to take a moment to check in and talk about the experience so far and where I'm at. Seattle is still pretty overwhelming. It's full of a bunch of amazing things! But I am a small city girl, largely,... Continue Reading →
