Marching on Washington and Fighting for Racial Equality: from 1963 to 2020

On August 28, 1963, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. stood in front of the Lincoln Memorial and gave his famous “I have a dream” speech. Approximately 250,000 people descended upon Washington, D.C. on that day to listen to Dr. King and many other Civil Rights advocates, including the late John Lewis, speak to their dreams of and work towards a fairer, more just, more inclusive United States. On August 28, 2020, 57 years after Dr. King gave his famous speech, thousands more gathered in Washington, D.C. yet again, protesting and calling for a lot of the same things Civil Rights advocates were marching for in 1963.

Recipe: Crock Pot Garlic Parmesan Chicken Pasta

I made this recipe for the first time last night, and it did not disappoint in the slightest. The way I described it in a Facebook post is that, if you love garlic, parmesan, pasta, and a bit of a kick to the taste buds, you'll want to try this recipe.

Happy Indoguration Day, Major Biden!

As a dog owner and lover, I'm just going to say it: spending the last four years without a dog in the White House has been awful. It's a tradition of sorts at this point for the First Family to have some kind of pet living in the White House with them. Unfortunately, the Trump … Continue reading Happy Indoguration Day, Major Biden!

[Personal Post]: Finding Happiness in Being My True Self

We each get one shot at this whole life thing. In the end, the boxes we force ourselves to fit into and the labels we apply to ourselves won't matter, so why put so much time and energy into fitting into places other people want you to be? Why not instead spend that time and energy finding a place in this world that feels right and comfortable for you?

Who knew Trump could sing, or that he loves Rent, the musical?

I should have known that the internet would manage to take something so terrible and turn it into something we can all love and enjoy. Without further ado, I give you the best auto-tuned song in a generation. God bless auto-tune, and God bless the internet.

“Mr. Weinstein Will See You Now” (NSFW)

"Mr. Weinstein Will See You Now" was written and filmed a few years ago, around the time the "Me Too" movement was at its peak, when thousands of people all over the world all came out and spoke up about the abuse and assault they had endured at the hands of those in some form of power.

Here’s the recipe for one of my family’s favorite Christmas cookies

We aren't able to have Cookie Day at Grandma's this year, because of COVID-19, so I thought I would spread the recipe around, to both family members looking for their yearly fix, as well as those outside of the family, who might be discovering a new holiday favorite.

Update on Bowie’s Illness

My poor baby still feels sick. I'm devastated. I want to help him feel better, but I don't know that I can do any more than give him his cough and congestion meds and hold him when he crawls up onto my chest (like he did here). This is my first real experience having a … Continue reading Update on Bowie’s Illness
