Stephen King and I

Do you believe in signs?  That things happen for a reason?  And do you believe that every once in a while, the stars can align in such a way that the thought of it all just being a mere coincidence is more preposterous than believing that it was fate?  I do. I’ve been writing posts for this blog for over two years.  How time flies. … Continue reading Stephen King and I

THE CRYING HANGOVER

This is our view from Nikola’s room at The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital.  Our baby was admitted this past Thursday because of a mysterious fever, rash, fussiness combo.  Since becoming a mom I have googled everything under the sun related to babies, but this one was too scary.  Their initial concern was Bacterial Meningitis.  It takes 48 hours for the results from the spinal tap to come … Continue reading THE CRYING HANGOVER

A Procrastinator’s​ Guide To Tackling The To-Do List: Blogging Edition

First, A little back story. I thought of the title for this blog post out of the blue one day.  So I quickly opened my WordPress app and typed it in. I hit save, under the Drafts tab.  Making absolutely sure that I didn’t accidentally hit the publish button.  That is the worst!  Publishing something before it’s ready, aaarrgh. It’s awful!  Anyway, as I was double checking that … Continue reading A Procrastinator’s​ Guide To Tackling The To-Do List: Blogging Edition

A Place For Maine Writers, Bloggers and Photographers

  Hi there! My name is Darci and am still fairly new to blogging.  I noticed that there aren’t any FB groups dedicated to bloggers in Maine.  I thought this would be a great place to first connect, and see if there may be in interested in joining one.  If there is, than I’d be very happy to get one going. If you have any … Continue reading A Place For Maine Writers, Bloggers and Photographers
