This week, I had an encounter with content stealing that left me feeling like I wanted to quit the internet. I have dramatic moments like this occasionally, trying to convince myself to just break up with my blog and move on. But every time I feel this way, I just can't bring myself to actually do it. The community, the connection with other people, it just feels like too much of a loss. But you can stay on social media like Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook, you might say. Yes, this is ...

This year, I decided that I wanted to start a garden. I've always admired those who grow their food and have big, overflowing vegetable gardens. I wanted one so bad!
