Dear 2020, This is a letter to tell you we’re through.  It’s time.  I’m ready to move on.  The thing is, it’s not me...it’s you. You are the reason our time together has to end.  You’ve been unpredictable, irrational, disorienting, and unrelentingly harsh. You tried...
Dear 2020, Wow! You are about to head out of here, no longer the year, but a piece of the past that I will likely never forget. I feel like we need to have some closure, but I don’t even know...
Dear 2020, You should know that I’m not really a fan. I don’t think I’ll ever say “let me tell you about my favorite year…” and then jump into a humorous or heartwarming story about the last 12 months. It...
Dear 2020, I will never forget you. I am not sure anyone will ever forget you. Not even if we want to. You made “masks”, “social distancing” and “quarantine” the new buzz words. Your tests felt like someone was sticking...
Dear 2020, If we were in a relationship, I’d definitely say it’s complicated. You’re a year I didn’t see coming. One that left much heartache and sorrow in your wake. One that took so much from so many. One that...
Dear 2020,Now that you are leaving, I feel EXHAUSTED. I mean, what a roller coaster you had us on this year. Highs, lows, dips, twists and turns, and some nausea-inducing loops. And COVID-19 was only ONE of the life-altering...
After the backyard bonfires have sufficiently burned all of the well-meaning 2020 calendars into a pile of forgotten ashes, it will be time to jot down (only in pencil, mind you) our hopes, dreams and *gulp* resolutions for 2021. If...

Ringing in the New Year at Home

Well, I think it is safe to say that EVERYONE is ready to put 2020 to bed, right? Out with the old. In with the new. I have never felt the urge to ring in the new year more...
Let's talk about how we can be intentional and mindful in the new year. Are you bogged down with everyday life? If yes, then this is for you. Are you going from one thing to the next wondering how...
Depression. My comfy old companion. Like a rainy, grey-painted world outside my window every day when I wake up. A big blanket I keep wrapped around my shoulders much of the time. Have I thought about ridding myself of...

I’ve been worried about what Christmas would look like this year. My extended family is on the East Coast, and I am in no way comfortable with flying back right now. But despite 2020’s efforts with a devastating pandemic,...
I’ll just go ahead and put it out there, I’m a bit of a beer snob. I’ve become the “beer person” in my group of friends, and I wear that badge with honor. One of my favorite things to...
Life on the hybrid schedule sucks. I wrote this post twice, and when I reread each one, I realized all I was doing was venting and complaining and making myself angry all over again. So, I thought I’d just share...
