Oh October

october 2014 desk calendar

I’m calling it quits on October even if there are still three days left in the month. It’s been a busy one so I’m ready to move on and see what November brings. I don’t usually like November… it’s a dark, dreary, cold month. Stuck between the golden colours on Fall and the excitement of [...]

I’m a Member of the Netflix #StreamTeam


I’m a huge fan of Netflix, especially in the summer. Our family camps all summer and we don’t have satellite or cable tv. So we binge on Netflix shows on rainy days or when we just need a break from the sun. This summer was no exception. I watched two seasons of Nashville (loved it) [...]
