Email Archive

(like a blog, but not)

I hate knowing I've missed everything before I joined an email list. I want to binge!!!

So I'm putting my emails here, in case you're the same. 

If you aren't on the email list, you can get these right in your inbox (and a few days before they show up here)!

We don't sell your info or spam you. You can easily unsubscribe at any time without having to go through 467 annoying steps.

Hey, Friend!

Weeding my garden put me in the hospital.

That I was weeding was an oddity in itself.

I love planning a garden.

 I love planting a garden.

👋🏻 so glad that twit's gone (no offense, old me) authenticity failure mindset perfectionism Dec 05, 2023

I'm not proud of this, but I used to be an envious little twit.

I was absolutely certain I sent a weekly email last week.

Aaaaannnnd....I would've lost. Because I definitely did not.

It's the kind of thing I could really beat myself up about.

And that's exactly what I would've done to myself in the past.

Somewhere in my formative years,...

"Don't get so emotional."

That's right up there with "calm down" as phrases guaranteed to elicit the exact opposite reaction than the words request...

It probably doesn't matter, since they mean basically the same thing:

"Your reaction is making me uncomfortable, so...
