Featured Series

In Tune

New In Tune Logo

Music is something that defines me. Every other week, I select a song from my Apple Music listening that has moved me in a unique way and highlight it in a special biweekly post. I try to highlight a variety of songs, from pop music to my nighttime Soothing Waters radio. Discover a new song by browsing through the “In Tune” category, or look out for a new edition every other Tuesday!

A Tail of Three Kittens

Screen Shot 2017-09-17 at 2.28.41 PM

What started out as a simple Special Edition has now turned into its own series. Back in April, a cat had three babies underneath our house. Now, they’ve grown up and visit our house for food several times a day. With each edition, I share new stories and too-cute photos of our kittens as they continue to brighten our days. Next Spring, we just might receive another litter of kittens, and so as always, the story continues…

A Tail of Three Kittens can be found in the “Special Edition” category.

When I release something outside of my normal posts, it could be about anything.  These posts can range from personal posts, writing pieces, to my views about the world around me. Look out for the logo on the left on the post calendar (found in the sidebar) to find out when a special edition will release!
