Nice Weather Ideas

The weather is starting to get nicer! Sure we still have our token rainy days or weeks, ahum PNW, but the sunny warm days are becoming more and more frequent and I am LOVING IT! It’s crazy to notice my motivation all of a sudden get better and the feeling of a heavy load mentally…

A Perfect Day

As the rain is falling outside, the grey clouds messing up my motivation.. I’m sitting here trying to think of the perfect day and it hit me I really have so many depending on what mood I’m in! Do you ever run into that? So wait let me go put the kettle on and make…

Thifting Adventures

Who doesn’t love a good thrift store find!? Or spending an afternoon looking through shelves and racks for that treasure of a life time. The bummed feeling of leaving empty handed, but hopeful that next time you will hit gold and find something exciting. Watching a certain item hoping it will still be there next…

F.A.S.T.

I wanted to share an acronym my therapist shared with me a couple sessions ago. I keep a journal of our sessions and write down things that stand out to me, things that help me, what we talk about. I struggle with really bad anxiety and stress and my brain likes to try and sabotage…

The Library

Just this January I walked back into our local library after not going in for maybe about four years. I went with my dad because I was looking for a certain movie and didn’t have a card anymore so he needed to check it out for me. I then thought as I passed the service…

Jane Eyre Adaptations

I recently decided to watch as many of the Jane Eyre adaptations I could get my hands on. Growing up Jane Eyre was my favorite book and I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve read the story, so I wanted to see how each film or mini-series held its own to the book itself….

Starting Fresh

Oh gosh.. I feel like my inspiration for writing on this page goes up and down and up and down. I get inspired and write a ton and then life happens and the writing slows down, or stops completely. Then I have a spurt and start writing again and the cycle continues from there. and…

What A Year!

It so crazy to wrap my brain around the fact that 2020 is over. We are in 2021 now! We finished the year we never thought would end. We joked that instead of striking midnight and a new year on January 1 2020 would some how just keep going… we joked, but at the same…

New York Adventures!

Part One- New York Adventures!  This past month, October 5-22, my parents, brother, and I went to New York and Pennsylvania for a getaway trip. We had been planning to go to Greece this fall, but due to Covid we can’t really leave the country so East Coast it was! Even then we could only…

Thoughts with Mikaela- a series

Part 2 Beauty is the way you hold yourself, how you treat others, how you love, the way you love others and yourself. It is self acceptance. It is grace. Beauty is in your soul. Our soul often enough knows what to do, how to heal itself, to search for the good, to be resilient……

Thoughts With Mikaela- a series

Part One What does a perfect morning look like to you? Does your mind instantly go to those Instagram pictures you have saved of that perfect aesthetic room with plants and mirrors and breakfast in bed? Or snuggled with your partner under blankets just enjoying each other’s company? The sound of gentle rain while soft…

Our Earth

I had a few lines just come to me the other day for a poem and I wanted to write them down before I forgot them. They then formed into a little poem. I rarely ever write poetry… I’ll write the occasional haiku here or there, sometimes a sappy love song that never sees the…
