Quick Tips for Daily Blogging

You might not know that Currently Kelli is actually my second daily blogging project. While Currently Kelli has been more about writing every day (and following predetermined weekly categories), my first daily blog was a photoblog for 2011. Through those two experiences, I learned a few things that made the obligation a little easier for…

New Year’s Eve

I know today is the day that I am supposed to reminisce about the past year, but I’m not feeling very nostalgic right now. Instead I’m spending the last hours of 2016 with my head in the clouds, dreaming & scheming up new projects for 2017.. and probably some Netflix with my sweetheart. Cheers to the…

Sad and Boring

Man, all week I’ve just felt pretty rough. Every day I wake up feeling a little bit worse. I wish I could snap my fingers and skip the next two months! Just snap my fingers and be mostly recovered from surgery and on a new Crohn’s medication that keeps my symptoms under control. Sure, I’d miss…

Mia’s Skills 

Mia learned several new skills with her trainer last week, and this week we’ve been reinforcing those skills in our home.
