Monthly Media Favs January 2020

Can you believe the first month of the year is over?? It just flew by waving it’s snowy, icy hand(at least in Wisconsin) and has been replaced by more ice and snow. I personally love the winter(gives you an actual excuse to stay inside) but then again my commute consists of ten steps from the […]

What’s Up with the Blog 2020?

I debated with doing this post. Will they actually care about my plans for the blog 2020? In the end I decided since I am such a goal oriented person and love making lists and then checking things off my list that this post would be fun to make if nothing else. (Sorry my loyal […]

Windowsill Garden Tour 2020

Another year, another windowsill garden tour(last year’s) I’ve actually had to cut out some of my plants as they died so my sill isn’t as over run with lush greens as it normally is. Also my plants are going through what I like to call an ugly phase. In other words none of them are […]
