As a type A, listmaking multi-tasker, it is in my very nature to take on a lot. I’ve learned to handle stress better as I’ve gotten older. Good old experience! However, being all of these things while pregnant got me like…

How Lovely to be a Woman…
As a blogger, a writer, a wife, a wedding officiant, a singer, a concierge, a crocheter, a friend, an aunt, a daughter, or whatever you want to call me, I am something different to every person I meet and know. I wear many different hats. One hat I happily wear is my woman’s hat with all the pleasures and pains that go with it. Continue reading
I grew up in the 80s and 90s. I consider myself a part of the Oregon Trails generation rather than a Millennial even though by definition I fit in that grouping. I danced in my living room to cassette tapes, played dress up and Barbies, and watched TGIF. When I look back at the things I loved and enjoyed before technology, it was a truly pure existence I led, the age of my youth and innocence. In that world of Barbies, Care Bears, Full House, She-Ra, Pound Puppies, Hugga Bunch, Cabbage Patch Dolls, My Little Pony, Fashion Plates, Muppet Babies, Popples, Cricket and Corky, and Adventures in Pooh Corner, I’d break out my Fisher Price Tape Recorder and pretend that I was the best of them all, the rock star with the pink hair.

2016: In search of Joy
Every year on December 31st and the days leading up to it. so many of us adopt new mantras we are determined to follow. New Year, New You. It’s amazing how many times you see it on social media: lose weight, find bliss, go on vacation, find a husband, lose negativity, find, lose, go, find, lose… What are we really searching for?

I’ll take Comfort and Joy, please!
Happy friggin’ Holidays! Joyous Kwanzaa, Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, etc. etc! I’ll say them all to cover everyone I can think of. The made up war on Christmas has not dampened my Christmas spirit. I have been super duper down in the dumps lately. If you want to know why, read Trying Out the Roller Coaster to get the gist. It’s intense, but it chronicles the ridiculous pattern that is my life on a daily basis. Not much goes my way these days but this holiday season? Oh, I’m taking back my holiday comfort and joy!

Hello, winter. Whoever is not ready for winter, raise their hand!!!!!!
Winter is a time for cozy blankets, hot chocolate, and the fabulous holiday season. That’s my Positive Polly side talking. Negative Nancy side says it’s a time for multiple layers of clothing, heavy coats, freezing fingers, and snow. I’m sticking with Positive Polly to get myself out of my former funk and into the holiday spirit and my new business!
Trying out the roller coaster…
When you have nothing nice to say, say nothing at all. Well the same goes if you have SO much good to report. I haven’t written in probably one of my longest stretches since I started this blog. I’m back from vacation and my mini hiatus with so much on my mind, good and bad. It’s time to put it all in perspective.
Ants in my pants
For today’s blog, I think it needs to represent my current mood. So often I’m goal oriented and driven and excited about everything that’s going on and I just can’t wait to share it with all of you.
Today I’m antsy.
I think the only way to illustrate this is to use visual aids, don’t ya think? 😉
In the now…
I’ve been so spoiled this summer. I’ve had so many little getaways and I’m loving it! I’ve definitely made my way down the beaches of New Jersey from Belmar to LBI to Pier Village with friends and family. I’ve traveled to North Carolina and recorded my album with dear friends. And now I’m hitting up Europe with my husband for three weeks. I don’t think summer gets much better than this! Continue reading
These days I’m all about pursuing my dreams, getting what I want my way! I’ve spent so much time waiting for things to come my way and I’m very proud of myself for getting some thangs DONE! It’s crazy how fast time flies and then I neglect my blog more than normal! One day when I’m not plagued with work I will get better about writing more consistently but for now, I just hope you all stick with me! I have great stories to tell! Continue reading
