    Have I Been Living in The Netherlands Too Long?

    A friend shared this article on Facebook earlier and the list made me laugh a bit because a fair few of them really do apply to me!  Some not, but many… oh hell yes. I’m sorry, I just had to stop at number 81 and come back up here to …

    When I first heard about Showtime’s new show The Big C last year, I wasn’t sure what to expect.  All I knew was that it was a show about Cancer, it sounded like a Reality show that would hit way too close to home for me.  Cancer? Really? Do they …

    Leaving Our Mark on Lake Salagou

    The Lavender Bush

    I’ve come to realize that the sheer number of photos from my trip to France has caused me to set them aside to deal with them later.  I have been avoiding them, I’m an avoider, it’s what I do… I avoid. I decided to just take them a bit at …

    Forget You? Never!

    Remember how I was saying I wanted to see how Forget Me Not by Catrice would look stamped and shattered and with topcoats etc.  Well, I couldn’t stop myself! Here is that fabulous color on its own… *Sigh*  Seriously, does it get better?  I guess it does, if you don’t …
