Welcome to my blog! To clarify, I am the human in the photo pictured…I know, such a disappointment.

It probably doesn’t need to be said, but I’m a huge animal-lover — especially of this little Jack Russell, my twelve-year-old shelter rescue we adopted earlier this year. Bella is my cure for whatever ails me.

I’m also an avid reader, a writer, and a green beauty advocate. I love to participate in passionate debates about any of those subjects, but otherwise you may find me socially inept. I’d much rather stay indoors with a good book, a favorite TV sitcom (Friends, of course), calming tea, and yes, as cliche as it sounds…chocolate. Or specifically, brownies.

On this blog you will see posts on reading, writing, green beauty, and mental health. If that doesn’t soothe your soul, no hard feelings — just try out the next time waster. Otherwise, welcome; I’m glad to meet you.
