I Am Portuguese and Proud

Before we dive into this post, I wanted to take a moment to address the absolutely horrendous rhetoric that She Who Shall Not Be Named has been spewing all over the Internet like some kind of swamp troll. It’s very, very simple, and if you don’t agree with this statement, see your way off of […]

Review: Rhapsody & Glenburn Earl Grey Tea

Lily & Grace!

It seems impossible to me that we’ve gone this long on the blog without a proper introduction to the two most important living beings in my life. Guys.  I know that they’re featured in each of my yearly goals, and I know I definitely mention them here and there, but I’ve never actually introduced my […]

Exciting Things are Coming!

I can’t thank you guys enough for the comments and love you showered on JRR Tolkien this month, and I’m so grateful to have been able to take an entire month to celebrate my favorite author! That said, I do recognize that there are those out there that aren’t as overly excited about him as […]
