Well hello there! It’s been a minute since I’ve been here. The freelance hustle is non-stop and, well, this became fallow land.
Anyway, we’re at the height of hurricane season (not to be confused with Hurricanes Season, which will get underway in a few weeks). In fact, we already had Hurricane Dorian hit North Carolina a week ago. Thankful that we were, once again, spared here in Raleigh, but our coastal communities were hit pretty hard.
Obviously, making sure we’re prepared for an emergency ...

North Carolina FC 5 – 0 Pittsburgh Riverhounds
Cary, NC—We have now reached the point in the USL Championship season when points take on greater importance and coaches are watching to see if their players can put in a consistent 90-minute shift. North Carolina FC head coach Dave Sarachan liked what he saw from his club Saturday night as they dismantled the Pittsburgh Riverhounds 5-0, calling his team’s performance, “professional” in his post-game remarks.
Pittsburgh was riding a five-game hot...
In today’s episode of “Aw, crap! I need to use this up before it goes bad!” I present a butternut squash and a jar of chickpeas from the batch I that cooked up in the Instant Pot.
Before we go on, you should know two truths about me:
I consider myself kind of a lightweight when it comes to spice. I like some heat, but not so much that I can’t taste anything else.
I like peanut butter. I mean, REALLY like it.
I usually make these bowls with roasted sweet potato instead of butternut squash beca...
I couldn’t imagine my life without Simon Sebastien. Rather, I didn’t WANT to imagine living without him.
Four years ago, my heart stopped beating as he took his final breath in my arms.
I am forever changed. In good ways, for the time we had together. In not good ways because I’ve been trying to navigate life without my heart.
This afternoon I looked up from the book I was reading and contemplated my Zen Zone. The Meditating Cat on one of the shelves is shaded by an old leaf from a liquid amb...

North Carolina FC 2- 1 Richmond Kickers
Cary, NC-In the end, it was more of a nail-biter than it should have been, but North Carolina FC stowed away all three points in their match against the Richmond Kickers.
Both clubs were coming off of mid-week losses. For North Carolina, though, their loss in Charleston was particularly galling. Deadlocked at zeros, Charleston scored two stoppage-time goals (91st and 94th minutes) to steal all three points.
Despite the loss at Charleston, NCFC’s run of ...
