A Little Life Update.

I’ve been unsure whether I was going to write this post. Alas, I ultimately decided that I am more of the straightforward type of blogger than the mysterious sort (gosh, I wish I could be more mysterious… but let’s be real: I’m just not a mysterious person when it comes down to it.)

The Guilty Trap.

Do you ever find yourself feeling guilty about silly, stupid things? This is something that’s been on my mind all weekend long (mostly because I’ve been sick which gives you a lot… too much… time to think!) I started to think about guilt because I was on the phone with my …
