Sing It Out Sunday: Summer’s Here Edition!

After the rainiest May ever (seriously, how many people were building arks?!), part of me absolutely cannot believe that it is June already, and part of me is just so happy that the sun is out that I don’t care what the calendar says. While the rain and grey may have sent me straight to

Sing It Out Sunday: Eagle Cam Edition

I am still obsessively watching the DC eagle cam – and the second egg has hatched! Oh glorious day! It’s a gloomy first day of spring here, but there is new life.

Sing It Out Sunday: Toni Morrison Edition!

The weather has finally started to warm up, and I have spent a delightful weekend walking around, enjoying the sunshine, and delighting in the end of winter. I have been joyfully busy, avoiding the internet to a certain extent, dreaming, existing, readying myself for whatever is next. However, that’s not the only reason there’s only

Sing It Out Sunday: Easter Edition

Happy Easter! Spring seems to have finally sprung (about time!!!), and I am trying to spend as much time outside, soaking up the sun, to counteract that long winter.
