Exactly one year ago today, my now-husband and I were betrothed. Saying that to most people always elicits a question about betrothal in the first place. Usually, there's a conflation of betrothal and engagement. However, they're actually pretty different.
Living in a Post-NaNo World
The above phrase is always how I think of what life is like after NaNo is over. Even if you don't make it to 50k, your imagination usually feels like some kind of post-apocalyptic wasteland after all the work done. At least mine always does.
A Different Thanksgiving
As you may suppose from my previous post, this year's Thanksgiving will be a bit bittersweet.
Dear Little One …
A miscarriage means a lot of sadness, but at least it means that we'll get to see you in heaven someday. I'll love you forever, my little one!
Finding Your Wedding Dress Online: Pt. 2 – Pros and Cons of the Experience
If you’re like me and dreamed your whole life of getting married, then you probably have a lot of ideas about what you want the lead up to that experience to be like.
Finding Your Wedding Dress Online Pt. 1: Modesty
Personally, I found my wedding dress online. Now, this wasn't the original plan. I had seen enough episodes of Say Yes to the Dress to have an idea of the experience I wanted while finding my wedding dress. However, I ended up hitting several roadblocks that sent me in a completely opposite direction, especially since I wanted a modest dress.
First Week of NaNoWriMo!
Here we are! We've finished the first week of NaNo! Doing NaNoWriMo can be a nearly all-consuming endeavor, but it can get overruled if you're also working or in school while doing it.

Halloween 2020 – Jedi: Fallen Order
I'm obsessed with Halloween. I immerse myself in spooky music all October and most of all, I make a point to dress to the nines as much as I can every yearSo we decided to go all out this year (budget considered of course). Our costumes were inspired by the video game Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. The characters of Cal Kestis and Merrin (the Nightsister) were what we chose to base our costumes off of.
NaNo 2020 – The Hallowmas Box
The Hallowmas box can only be found between the hours of midnight and 3am between Halloween and Hallowmas. The box itself is full of several mysterious objects, related to the passage/ties between worlds. Preston Everett is an unusual academic in search of the box. He has a fascination with the supernatural and often dabbles too deep in the ancient and arcane. What he'll find will be secrets beyond what he anticipated, as well as stories of those who have delved too deep into this Otherworld, like himself.
Prepping for NaNoWriMo!
It's October! And we all know what that means! Halloween! Which I love, but that's not what we're preparing for right now. The start of October means NaNoWriMo is one month away.
