The barometer you didn’t know you had

What is the condition of your home telling you?

PART ONE This post began as a note scrawled to myself on a post-it: time to cook is a barometer for how well I’m taking care of myself. It was a night when, for the first time in weeks, I found enough time to enjoy putting together a big pot of goat cheese pasta for […]

In honor of Earth Day: secondhand shopping in Winona, Minnesota

Earlier last year, I was walking down second street on a break from work, and I was stopped by a man and his daughter. “Do you know where we can find a thrift store or an antique store around here?” Um, YEAH. I do. (And, boy, did you pick the right girl to stop on […]
