Just Write

Just WRITE. I thought I’d pop in for a second and share some thoughts from a freelancer’s perspective. The world is an uncertain place right now. I could go on and on about business or school closures and job loss, but I won’t. The best…

Why I am Grateful to Work Home More than Ever

“I’m scared” a co-worker at my side-hustle job shared. The fear in her eyes backed up the words coming from her lips. This particular person was someone that I occasionally saw in passing during my few short hours every week as a morning stocker, but…

Word of the Year 2020

Word of the Year 2020-Light

Around 2015, I noticed many of my friends picking their “Word” for the upcoming New Year. If this concept is new to you, let me explain: choosing a yearly “Word” is a January tradition (not unlike New Year’s Resolutions) where people choose a specific and…

She found her bliss and is living by example

From paralegal to tiny house luminary, BA has had many of her tiny dreams a BIG reality. I’ve known Beth Ann {B.A.} Norrgard since high school. Even back in the 1980s, she had spunk and spirit that was hard to ignore. As life oftentimes does,…

Antique Archeology of Nashville

The older I get… (a battle cry for wise women)

The older I get…well, I’d like to think I get wiser. Not like Yoda-wise, but I think all women can attest to the fact that, as they age, their intuition sharpens and their self-confidence rises. Yes, we may be “sagging” in places, but I am…

Roots, Wings and Feeding my Soul

Turning 50 was hard on me. Like, hot-mess-daily-ugly-cries-pity-party-for-one, hard. But now, at 53, I can honestly say I LOVE being in my 50’s. I don’t know what or where it came from, but being 53 is rich and fulfilling. “Wisdom” is a word I proudly…
