Back from the Dread

I’ll admit right off the bat that I thought of this catchy title first (Back from the Dread). It barged to the forefront of my mind – elbowing it’s way through all my other potential (but far less superior) titles. I’m now fully committed and must create content. Here goes nothing… It’s been absolutely forever […]

Espress Yourself

A few years ago I spent a week of my life fantasizing about buying my own espresso machine. I would make whatever kind of espresso drink I wanted whenever I wanted. I would learn how to make those fancy foam leafs on top with a few flicks of my wrist. I would impress our brunch […]

My Cups Runneth Over

Literally…my cups runneth over. In Psalm 23:5, King David feels incredibly blessed by God (given more than his needs required both physically and spiritually), saying “my cup runneth over”.

In the Closet

Figuratively speaking, I’m completely out of the closet – unabashedly so. However, I was hiding layers of stuff (in the form of sheet sets, scrubs, towels, and blankets) in my real closet. Ah – ye olde hall closet. Let’s admit it, literally or figuratively speaking – we’re all hiding something in our closets. I mean, […]
