This is why…

October 1, 2018

Oh, I’m so happy that HandsFreeMama gave me such a perfect, shining example of what I wanted to put into words today. It’s worth clicking over there and reading it yourself, but in the likely event that you won’t, I’ll just share the heart of it: There I was, sitting […]

What I Learned from My Facebook Break

August 8, 2018

No Facebook in July for me. Well, sort of. I still used messenger on my phone, but downgraded (upgraded?) to messenger lite… which meant that every once in a while, I’d log in and use messenger on the computer, because sometimes a good gif really is worth a thousand words. […]
