Click. The sound something fitting into place. The sound of a camera as it captures the perfect shot (whether it really be perfect or not). The sound and feeling of being with a person that compliments you and understands you. The sound of a door being closed and locked. The sound and feeling of the […]

Home Sweet Home: Guest Bedroom


Ever since I bought my house, I have been having such a great time organizing and decorating. Making it a home…and not just a house. With the help of my parents, I have been able to accomplish so much throughout the house to make it mine. And it is a sanctuary that this introvert LOVES. […]

Sunshine and Clouds


“Even where there are clouds, the sun is always shining.” That quote sure applies to every day life doesn’t it? Our lives may be full of stress, sadness, anxiety, frustration…those are the clouds. But the sun? The sun in our life is always there. In the past months, I can still see the sun. Sure, […]

Lack of Inspiration Corner


Are there days, weeks, even months where you lack inspiration? I am at a point that I am lacking inspiration. I want to find it, I try looking for it, and then I find that I can never find it. Looking for it actually makes it worse. It also doesn’t help that there are personal […]

Goodbye 2013…Hello 2014


Yes, it is time for New Year’s resolutions. That time that I always make the list to better myself. To perfect myself. To fix those problem areas. Not this year. This year I am waking up tomorrow with an attitude of love. I am going to try to love the person that I am. The […]


Papa's Atlas

Today is my Papa Jim’s birthday. He would have been 93 years old today. I miss him. I miss his quiet, patient way. I miss his smiles. I miss his hugs. I miss his laugh. I miss sharing stories with him and having him try my latest recipe creation. I miss him every day. Papa […]

Lil Miss Gardener…Ha

I do not have, nor will I ever have, a green thumb. It is not even light green. Plants are not really my friends. I like them plastic. If I forget to water them, no harm done. They won’t complain. However, number 13 on my “36” Bucket List is grow my own herbs.  Starting small…no […]

Welcome Home

On Tuesday, I accomplished number 12 on my “36” Bucket List…I bought a house. This is a house that I have lived in for over 10 years. A house I was renting from my parents and has had it’s fair share of occupants. But now, it is all mine. I am making it a home. […]


Today I turn 36. I am now closer to 40 than I have ever been in my life.  I have made that turn in the road toward my scary age. But since there is nothing you can do about the passing of time, I decided to embrace it. Well, try to anyway. I decided to […]

Where is my Kitchen?


There are some exciting things happening at the Bossy house this month. Unfortunately, due to the overwhelming amount of stuff going on, cooking and baking has been put on the back burner. Ha. But this weekend I hope to remedy that with a free weekend to fill with cooking and baking galore. The ice and […]
