Bloganuary 31, 2023: Where is the Best Place to Watch the Sunset Near You?


Well, we’ve made it. This is the final prompt of Bloganuary 2023. It’s been fun—even if a little anxiety triggering at times—and I’m glad I decided to hop in there and give it a whirl, but I’m also happy it’s ending. The pressure of daily posting was starting to stress me out and I was overthinking the prompts a bit. Will I do it again next year if it’s...

Bloganuary 30, 2023: What Would You Title the Chapters of Your Autobiography?


Oh my goodness! My initial reaction to reading today’s prompt was pure, stifling horror. I’m fairly sure my jaw dropped a bit and my eyes opened wide despite having not yet been caffeinated, though no one was around to confirm. It felt like my face was speaking volumes. Then I remembered this punny “oughtobiography” meme and relaxed a bit (really need to work more on that...

Bloganuary 29, 2023: What is Something You Learned Recently?


I’ve been staring at this question for much longer than I would have expected. I’m not sure why. Nary a day goes by when I haven’t learned something, yet my brain is insistent that there is nothing worthy of disclosing in response to today’s prompt. It (my brain) sorts most stuff I pick up throughout each day into internal folders that are very much akin to junk drawers...

Bloganuary 28, 2023: Describe Your Perfect Birthday Cake


Mmmm… cake. 🤤 Nothing puts the happy in birthday quite like cake! It’s chocolate. Definitely. Dark and rich and decadent. Two beautiful 8″ rounds baked to delectable perfection. They have just the right amount of spongy spring-back when you tap your fingers on them to check if they’re cooled enough. There’s an amazing lightly sweetened whipped peanut butter frosting...

Bloganuary 27, 2023: What are the Pros and Cons of Procrastination?


This morning’s Bloganuary prompt is an interesting one. Most people are likely inclined to only view procrastination as a negative thing, yet the prompt asks for both the pros and cons. It kind of forces one to think outside the box—beyond standard societal norms and expectations. I like that. I’m not sure there is much to say about the cons. The negative connotations of...

Bloganuary 26, 2023: What Language Do You Wish You Could Speak?


This one is easy, except there are two languages I wish I could speak fluently: Spanish and ASL (American Sign Language). Despite taking two years of Spanish in high school, I never made it to fluency levels. Part of that was lack of opportunity to use it regularly. I think that’s one of the most important things to do when trying to learn another language. At this point, I can remember a...

Bloganuary 25, 2023: What is a Song or Poem That Speaks to You and Why?


That would probably be my entire “On Repeat” playlist. The past several years have been rough and I’ve been working my way through a lot of stuff: a break up, trying to learn more about myself, rediscovering who I am beyond being a mother…. I’ve always loved songs with relatable lyrics and if they are in anyway empowering, that’s also a big plus. The topmost...

Bloganuary 24, 2023: How Do You Show Love?


I’m an “Acts of Service” gal, I think. At least that’s who I’ve been for most of my life. I show love by caring about the people I love, doing things for them to (hopefully) make their lives easier and happier. I’ve always been a caretaker, I guess. Part of that has (historically) always been cooking and/or baking. Tweaking recipes to suit their preferences...

Bloganuary 23, 2023: What’s a Lie You Tell Yourself?


One? Oy vey! This is a definitely a prompt that has the potential to get real deep, real fast. I’m going to try to avoid falling into that pit, simply because I’m not sure I have the time today to spiral out of control. At pretty much any given point in time, I’m telling myself at least a half dozen lies. This is especially true because of my anxiety disorders (and owing in part...

Bloganuary 2023 Catch Up: Days 21 & 22


Yay! I did it! I got all caught up! This post marks my final Bloganuary Catch Up post. The next Bloganuary prompt I respond to will finally be right on time and all by its lonesome! 🎉 I hope it doesn’t get lonely without a little buddy post… Day Twenty-One: Who is your favorite author and why? There are so, so many talented and fabulous authors out there that I enjoy reading, but I...
