Last week, I officially dusted off the hot coffee maker in my house. Like, it was actually covered in dust because in our household, we make cold brew in the summer months. I’d rather have cold brew in the fridge than pretty much all kinds of cheese and fresh berries which, let me tell you,… Read More The 9 Stages Of Going From Iced To Hot Coffee
Reunited, and it feels so goooood! Hello again! Julia and I are thrilled to be back on your screens. Thanks for having us! To show our appreciation, we’re offering up that brighter-than-bright pink Eastern Washington summer sunset picture (#nofilter).

We’ve had the distinct pleasure of working with and profiling a number of amazing women since launching in 2016.

While not everyone writes a book in their lifetime, most of us do tackle some sort of momentous project, or find ourselves on a long-term… Read More 4 Questions: 3 Women On Long-Term Motivation, Books, And Feeling “Done”
It was tough to determine one theme that covers all the bases we want May’s theme to cover. We wanted to acknowledge Mother’s Day and Memorial Day, we wanted to recognize the six-month anniversary of launching this site, one of us has a kiddo with a birthday this month, and one of us has a… Read More Connecting to May’s Theme

And, I left with far too few pictures. However, I did manage to snap the shot above during sunset the one night we stayed on the… Read More Somewhere On Lake Roosevelt, Eastern Washington
Note: In the spirit of this month’s theme of “unexpected,” Julia and I (the two founders of this very website you’re reading), hopped on a chat to discuss what the concept means to us. Julia: Let’s go for it. Dena: Okay, for context, we had another theme ready to go, and I changed it last minute… Read More Let’s Talk About The Unexpected, Shall We?
It’s our pleasure to share that, starting today, we’re adding a new type of post to The Woodsy’s rotation. Introducing Public Displays of Appreciation, or PDAs. For various reasons, including but not limited to timing, or distance, or schedule, or the fact that the woman of the hour may be a historical figure, we simply don’t… Read More (Introducing) PDA: Happy 101st Birthday, Beverly Cleary!
