I made this. My mom doesn't really like it. I kind of like it, though. It's like a simplistic version of the St. Benedict medal.
So, it's pretty likely that I have funny, talented friends and that someone approached me and was like, "Hey, I'm throwing an event. Could your improv troupe come and perform?" And I was all, "Ummm, I don't really have an improv troupe...but, OK!" And then I picked some of my favorite teammates and asked if... Continue Reading →
Today I'm wearing a vintage dress I bought at a church rummage sale. The fabric is light and summer; it's covered in outdated-yellow polka dots that are speckled with an occasional teal. I think this dress is fantastic, even though it isn't a perfect fit. The light-weight material is PERFECT for the summer. The flow... Continue Reading →

We were both sitting outside listening to some jazz at an outdoor stage when he inquired about the soup I was eating (recipe link, thanks... Continue Reading →
Blah, blah, blah. I started typing out the history of my faith life just now. But I bored myself and figured that wasn’t a good sign. Someday if we meet in real-life, real-time, we should go out for gluten-free pizza and talk about our experiences of faith and I’ll elaborate there. But, not here. Instead... Continue Reading →
Today is the Feast day of St. Maximilian Kolbe. It snuck up on me, it did. I know that his Feast day is August 14th, but I finish my Marian Consecration tomorrow and so I was focused on that instead of thinking about today. And yesterday as I sat at the kitchen table with Christine... Continue Reading →
