Taza Wicked Dark Chocolate

I have already written a review about my love of Taza Chocolate but it’s posted on a different website and I cannot have a category on this website entitled “Things I Love” without at least mentioning Taza Wicked Dark Chocolate. After all, it is my absolute favorite food in the whole, wide world. I love this stuff so much that I wait until they offer a 20% discount and then… Read Article →

Autumn Update

Hello, Everyone! I have been enjoying a series of busy and productive days and I am amazed to find myself coherent enough to spend time writing between other tasks, often into the evenings.

Nobody actually reads personal blogs, do they? I used to be an avid journalist, but then one day I started to wonder what people would think if they found my journal and started to read. I stopped writing; it was just too personal. Over the years, I tried to pick it up again because writing is how I process my life. That same thought, “What will people think?” kept haunting… Read Article →
