#72: On Borrowing Kids

#72: On Borrowing Kids

Several years ago, someone at church asked me if I babysat, and I quickly answered “No!” explaining that after being with kids all week at work, combined with working with them at church, I simply needed a break on Friday and Saturday nights. After the words came out of my mouth, internally I wondered if […]

#68: On Girl vs. Toilet

#68: On Girl vs. Toilet

When I first moved into my townhouse and encountered my first running toilet, I called a plumber. It was my first year of living in the house and it was under a home warranty, so I figured the plumber wouldn’t be too crazy expensive. He came and about 5 minutes and $60 later, the toilet […]

#67: On Why I Avoid the Mother’s Day Church Service

#67: On Why I Avoid the Mother’s Day Church Service

Call me selfish.  Call me cowardly.  Call me overdramatic   But I stand by the promise I made to myself about 3 or 4 years ago:  I don’t go to church on Mother’s Day. Most people would assume that Valentine’s Day is the worst holiday for singles, but for me, the hardest holiday is Mother’s Day.  If you’ve never […]

#65: On My Magazine Addiction

#65: On My Magazine Addiction

Hello, my name is Amy and I’m a magazine-aholic.  I blame it on my mother.  Growing up my mother kept the house fully stocked with Good Housekeeping, Family Circle, Better Homes and Gardens, and Women’s Day.  I loved to pore over those magazines, dreaming of how I would one day decorate my own house and […]

#63: On Spring in Georgia

Often, when I come home from vacationing in LA or in some other city, I look around and think to myself that my town is a little boring and I find myself longing to live somewhere more exciting.  Somewhere like the fun place I just came from. It can take a little while to become […]

#60: On Poetic Inspiration

#60: On Poetic Inspiration

I was recently inspired by three poems. I have included them below so you can perhaps be inspired as well. The first poem is one of my favorites that I turn to this time of year, “I wandered lonely as a cloud” by William Wordsworth. It speaks to me because of my undying love of […]

#57: On Princess Dreams

#57: On Princess Dreams

I recently got to be a small part of our school’s production of Beauty and the Beast. The whole experience was amazing, but one of the most precious things was seeing all the little girls coming to watch the musical dressed in their frilly princess costumes. Their eyes shone with anticipation as they walked into […]

#53: On February’s Failed Vegan Flirtation

#53: On February’s Failed Vegan Flirtation

As you already know, I’ve been pondering the idea of going vegan since this summer (On Nutrition). So I was intrigued to go to lunch and learn at work on a Friday in mid-January where a representative from Whole Foods had come to talk about their 28 Day Challenge which was in connection with the Engine 2 Diet. The […]

#47: On How to Survive Valentine’s Day

#47: On How to Survive Valentine’s Day

When I wrote my last post about surviving winter, I decided that surviving Valentine’s Day needed its own separate entry. The difficulties of Valentine’s Day for a single girl are pretty much self-explanatory, and I previously mentioned that our house burned down on Valentine’s day, so I don’t think it’s necessary to explain why this […]
