Backyard Chickens {My Here & Now…}

I once heard a very wise blogger offer a piece of advice that only recently came to mind again. I guess that was because I needed it to come to mind at precisely that moment… that moment when I realized that I have become an inconsistent blogger who was actually…

~~~EaRtHqUaKe!?!~~~

In case you spent the entire day away from all news reports and/or social media… believe it or not, the east coast experienced an earthquake today!

My Sad (as opposed to "Funny") Valentine…

I know many shrug off Valentine’s Day as a greeting card holiday, created by money-hungry corporations… Whatever. I choose not to be so cynical. For us, Valentine’s 1999 marked mine & Danny’s first “official” date. We were freshmen at BJU & we were ridiculously, madly in love. 🙂 So for the most…
