2021 Resolutions Check-In

It’s about that time for me to do a bit of an early check-in now that the year is nearly halfway over, and revisit the goals I had set for myself around New Year’s Eve/New Year’s Day to see if I’ve accomplished any, or- at the very least- come anywhere close to accomplishing them. Some […]

A Month to Remember: March 2021

Another day, and another month comes to a close. It’s hard to believe that March is over and we’re getting ready to dive into all things April within a few short hours- including Easter, more Spring-esque weather here in New England- and ongoing vaccination roll-out phases (depending on your state/region, of course. I’m still waiting […]

A Few of My Favorite Things: March 2021

And I’m back! After an absolutely fantastic, fun and much-needed vacation in Nevada last week- I’m presently getting re-acclimated and caught up at work and readjusting to being back home on the East Coast.
