It’s Been A While

July 23, 2018

It’s amazing how time flies sometimes. I’ve been so busy working on my other blog that I’ve completely neglected my own site.  I really should know better by now but sometimes life really can get the best of you. I’m here now though and I’ll hopefully be able to post a little something on a regular basis.

So, what the heck have I been up to? Well, I’m still working full time with my family’s company. I’m still a consultant with Perfectly Posh and recently I’ve added Origami Owl to that list. I’m not as focused on the later two but it is nice to make some extra money from time to time! If you’re interested in checking either out I’ll have a list of links at the end of the post!

I also got another cat. My friends joked that I got Frankie right after David Bowie. Then I went and adopted Oliver right after Chris Cornell. Personally, I don’t think that’s the case. So how did I end up with Oliver? I’d gone to Pet Smart for cat food and saw this little kitten peaking around the corner in the adoption area. All the other kittens were asleep but he kept watching me. Basically he picked me and I couldn’t leave without him. They have their own Instagram and I’ll leave a link at the end of the post.

Lots of Writing

The Other Blog

I’ve also been working on another blog where we update a little more often than I have been over here. It’s been pretty fun the last two years. It’s called Not Your Counter Culture. We’ve been focused on sharing fun playlists we’ve made, looking at some of the different subscription boxes and searching for off the beaten path places in Charleston and Charlotte.

The Novel

My friend and I are also working on a novel (well a series). We’ve been talking about it for years but we’ve finally buckled down and started doing some serious work towards starting. I’m really excited to finally put all of our ideas down. I’ll probably be updating a lot about that process over here.

Back To Blogging

September 22, 2014

Boy, have I missed blogging. The last few years or so have been a complete whirlwind of things, including me not really accomplishing much of anything. I pulled away from social media, blogging, entertaining and everything else that I always loved. It’s time to start making some changes in my life and one of those is that I really want to get back into blogging, I think it will be a step in the right direction of getting my life back on track.

I’m going to start fresh, with a brand new blog and go in a brand new direction. I miss getting out and experiencing my city, I miss taking photos, and I miss the people I’ve lost contact with.

So, what have I been up to all of this time? Well, I moved into a house a little over a year ago and I’ve been working on getting the inside and backyard situated. There are still plenty of things I would like to get done, like replacing the vanity in my bathroom and doing an entire kitchen renovation but I’m taking everything one step at a time. That is pretty much all I’ve been up to, and learning how to cook. That has been an adventure all in its own. I knew how to cook the basics, but I’m trying to branch out and use more fresh and local foods as opposed to frozen and canned.

I guess that’s what this blog is going to be focused on. My adventures in home ownership as I approach my thirtieth birthday next year.
