Can we talk about how annoying the phrase, “When it rains it pours” is? Like seriously! Number one, why does it have to rain in the first place, let alone pour? And yeah, yeah, yeah, I know rain allows beautiful things to grow and us to appreciate happy times. Blah, blah, blah. Is it possible to just maybe have a light drizzle as opposed to a full on torrential down pour? Maybe with a little rainbow at the end? [Read more…]
Well. It is confession time people. I know most of you have just moved on from Halloween and have maybe started planning your Thanksgiving dinner menu. I have given a teeny thought to Thanksgiving.

Like I need more things going on up there! [Read more…]
