James Farmer

Happy Wednesday! I hope your week is going well. Things have been a bit rough here this week. Just life stuff…a friend I’m worried about, a nagging health issue (nothing serious), etc. I tell you that only because things can seem so perfect in blog and Instagram land that I wanted you to know that […]

Christmas Things

How is your December going? Ours is busier than usual and, to be honest, busier than I’d like. I love the festive feeling of the month, but it’s a *tiny* bit too much for this introvert. Today, however, I’m cozied up at home because Kansas City is a winter wonderland. We got 8-ish inches of […]

I do this not because I’m a confident, easygoing traveler but because I’m the opposite…a somewhat anxious traveler who misses the comforts of home. Still, I like seeing new places and re-visiting old favorites so […]

Summer Favorites

Is it feeling like summer where you are? The schools around here are wrapping up and yesterday as I was leaving the neighborhood, I noticed kids on their bikes in the middle of the day, which is such a happy sight and makes it feel like summer to me. To celebrate I’m sharing some of […]

Weekend Links: Sound of Music Edition

Do you love The Sound of Music? What am I talking about? Of course you do! Recently, in that weird way the universe works, The Sound of Music has been popping up in multiple places for me. First, there was a post on Twitter that asked “Which movie villains do you think were in the […]

Things to Watch and Read

Have you watched Brené Brown’s new Netflix special? (You can see the trailer here.) I’ve heard it’s amazing but I haven’t seen it yet because I plan to sit down with a pen and paper and take notes while I watch. That’s how much wisdom Brené delivers. If you’re not familiar with Brené, start by […]
