I’m not sure that September gets enough credit. It’s two-thirds summer, one-third fall. That’s part cold brew, part pumpkin spice, part flip-flops, part boots. What could be better? If you twist my arm, I could probably even admit that it’s my favorite month. Of course, I’m not so blinded by love for September that I… Read More Good And Bad Realities Of Early Fall In The PNW
It’s been five years since I moved back to Washington after a mere four years in California, and I’m still not quite used to it.

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.

Both Julia and I met Cara just over a year ago at a women’s writing event here in Spokane. Thanks to the wonders of social media, we’ve been able to follow along as she’s (deservedly) appeared in some prestigious publications. She kindly agreed to turn the tables and let me interview her about her self-designed freelance… Read More Cara Strickland: Writer, Storyteller, Student
Earlier this year, Julia and I reached out to members of our online writing community and asked if they’d be willing to share with us their experience of writing books. 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”
Elise and I originally met when we were both participating in The Moms, a panel on local morning show Good Day Spokane (hosted by Kjerstin Bell, who’s joined us before here on The Woodsy).
