St. Patty’s Day Treats

I am currently suffering from a bit of a sleep deprivation headache.  This weekend was filled with so many great adventures, but I am not 21 anymore.  I need my sleep, and I did not get much of that. Partly to blame was me thinking it would be a good idea to stay up and…

Kelly Clarkson at Royal Farms Arena – Baltimore

I have not written much recently.  I told myself it was because I have been so busy and as a result too tired to write.  Honestly though, I’ve just been feeling unmotivated.  I’ve lacked the drive to write, cook, clean, socialize, oh and especially sleep.  Well, I think I have lacked the calmness and serenity…
